I am trying to use a Netgear MA401 PCMCIA wireless card with my laptop running
SUSE 8.0. Under 7.3 I used to choose orinoco_cs under the modules (thus not
the PCMCIA option), and used to work fine. Now this option won't work in 8.0,
but - according to some fellow Linux users - regular pcmcia incorporated
should. Oh, well, when doing that here is what I get in the message log:
init_module: prism2_cs.o: 0.1.13-devel1 Loaded
init_module: dev_info is: prism2_cs
prism2_cs: CardServices release does not match!
p80211.o: 0.1.13-devel1 Unloaded
Any ideas on how to fix this? This is an 8.0 patched with the latest from
SUSE's site (via a regular Ethernet wired card I had to use :))
NOTE: I could probably try the
but I was hoping in something done by SUSE right!
I suspect that i am merely stupid and that this is the reason i cannot
figure out how to do an online update to the latest KDE release. It is
my assumption that i need to provide a directory string at ftp.suse.com,
but can't for the life of me figurre out what it is. Although i can
find the files, yast2 can't, and i never seem to be able to download the
right files in the right order to just run the rpm's myself. For the
sake of my crumbling self-esteem, can someone please help me.
What would be a good win-98 emulator for Linux? Is it vmware of win4lin?
I have tried the vmware that comes with SuSE, but I found it to be quite slow
what comes to screen handling.
Reason is that my spouse wants to go to Linux, but one bookkeeping software
and banking software needs win-98.
We are also ready to pay for this sw...

Ok. It's been a month. I was waiting to buy 8.0 locally just so that there'd
be one more shelf sale for distributors to look at. I waited patiently...
I regularly checked Future Shop for it. They kept saying "Check back in a
couple of days." Now they're saying that they don't have it and won't get it.
That really pisses me off. I thought they were going to carry it. That's why I
didn't preorder from the States this time around.

Dear SuSE Wizards,
I have sold an application for years that has a *nix backend but
traditionally terminals or PC with terminal emulators running Telnet clients
at the front end. What do I use if I want to run Linux at the Desktop with
Linux at the Server?
Basically, I think I'm looking for a Telnet Client like what is offered by
the James River Group but not for windoze but for Linux.
Any ideas? Is there something already in there that does a nice job? (I am
familiar with Putty and it is decent, but I'm looking for a few more bells
and whistles so that it might even be GUI.

One of my routers is giving me a weird error. I'm setting up a dial out
capability using pppd with ppp-on and ppp-off scripts. The weirdness occurs
when I try to dial out. The first time the script connects flawlessly. The
second connection attempt fails when Chat reports 'NO CARRIER'. The odd
thing is it never even tried to dial. As I understand it, 'NO CARRIER' is
error that occurs when the modem on the other end hangs up unexpectedly. Why
would I get a 'NO CARRIER' error before the connection is even made.
If I retry the connection attempt, it agains work flawlessly. The only clue
I have is that the first connect leaves the HS indicator lit on my USR
V.everything modem when it hangs up. Then the second attempt fails but does
manage to turn off HS. The the third attempt works fine.
Can someone give some clue as to what's happening here?
