The time has come to swap out my old PCI ELSA Winner video card for an AGP
nVidia Quadro I got on EBAY. I'm trying to come up with the best way to get
SuSE 8.1 to handle the change with the least disruption. Here is what seems
to be the best way:
1 shutdown, power off, remove PCI card, put AGP card in
2 start PC and make any required changes to the BIOS settings
3 re-boot SuSE into a text screen
4 run SAX2 and re-configure X to the new Video card
But I haven't figured out how to tell LILO to boot onlt a text console and I
don't know how to setup the system for the nVidia code to use 3D
Does anyone have any hints, tips or critques?

Why doesn't suse 8.0 read my NTFS windows partitions and drives. I looked at
the kernel and the required modules are loaded. When I try to mount it says
that the windows/c mount point doesn't exist.
I'm trying to work out how to print out ascii text files,
in 2 side-by-side pages on a sigle letter sheet in
Things seem to work, except that the landscape printout,
is coming out in portrait on the printer, and the rightpage
is just "squeezed off" to the right side.
So it looks OK, except the printer isn't switching the paper to
I have a HP Deskjet 930C
The commands I'm using are these:
a2ps --landscape -P lp myfile.txt
How do I tell a2ps to use landscape?
If I print from OpenOffice the printer does it right, so
I know that it's not the printer. a2ps has a nicer looking
printout though. :-)

The mail client balsa, which is the default in gnome, can not send any
mail using Suse 8.1 - or at least, not with postfix.
Can this be solved somehow? I haven's seen a patch for it so far.
I've looked through all the sysconfig options in Yast2, but I cannot find
what causes SuSEconfig to reset my custom scripts in /etc/init.d
Any time the system runs SuSEconfig, my links in /etc/init.d/rc5.d (and
rc3.d) get reset to S01. For example, S12postgresql is changed to
S01postgresql. This is inconvenient as the network doesn't start until
S05network. Is there a way I can tell SuSEconfig to stop this? It
doesn't seem to mind the stop scripts....
The confusion that surrounds the topic of "How Best to make my SuSE X.X use
KDE 3.1 stable is making my brain hurt.
I thought YOU was for general updates to SuSE 8.x and that it would become the
SuSE preferred tool for all distribution s/w maintance and upgrading. I have
followed the APT vs YOU threads on this list with some interest, but I felt
secure in the knowledge that YOU was the SuSE answer to more sophisticated
Now observing the activety on this list I have seen several ways of taking a
SuSE sys to KDE 3.1 stable; I have also seen a number of people report that
'meathod X causes Y problem" and a slightly smaller number of replies that
say "Do what I did to fix that". I felt secure in the knowledge that those of
us who had the patience to wait would find a YOU, SuSE 'blessed', KDE 3.1
stable entry; and that the Official SuSE YOU pkg would have minimized the
errors and pitfalls of the update process.
Now we have been told that the only way to get a 'blessed' KDE 3.1 is to wait
for the next release of SuSE, rel 8.2 . SuSE is saying that YOU is only for
patchlevel updates (bug fixes only, no new feature or internal
So in light of this news I think it is time to look at APT again. My
impression of APT is that it is a tool of greater depth and ability. What is
the SuSE stand on APT? Do the APT repositories contaim official
packages,(blessed by SuSE)? How does APT achieve the level of package
integration that we expected from YOU? Does SuSE offer a SuSE APT? When SuSE
issues bugfixes or security fixes via YOU will YOU 'know' about APT installed
or updated apps? Will YAST2 'install or remove' app know about and handle APT

We had many many problems to have the jvm running in mozilla (Suse 8.1,
mozilla from CDs - 1.0.1). Anyone with a working config could tell us how
I could not activate it with a symlink from /opt/mozilla/plugins/ to the
file libjavaplugin_oji.so under the java tree; neither copying the file.
Having a digital camera my downloading of photo's still has
to go over dos because my pcmcia card reader still has
problems recognizing the smartcard in the pcmcia adapter.
I also have a floppy disk adapter which until now is not in
use because it only works under windows and some mac
programs. I searched around but was not able to find any
linux driver for this adapter.
Has somebody among us this disk adapter working?
