I have an Adaptec Utra160 SCSI card and I wonder if the following
problem is solved with the SuSE version of the kernel.
To summarize the issue, when using this kernel, the system totally hangs
when loading both new or old version of the aic7xxx module. This forces
you to use the manual install on an IDE drive. The only solution found
by then to access the SCSI drives was to compile my own kernel.
I wonder if this has been somehow solved since October of last year and
if the 8.2 version doesn't have that issue anymore.
Thank you for the info!
I have a brand new laptop, yet the battery monitor and some other things are
not working. I have acpi turned on, and klaptop complains of an incomplete
acpi setup for the kernel. Also, I have a radeon mobility u1 card...SaX
doesn't detect it, and when I try to use the radeon driver and test the
setup, I get this error:
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such device)
(EE) No devices detected.
I'm using the updated 2.4.19 kernel from SuSE, and when I try booting with the
options "apm=on acpi=off" and then type "rcapmd status", it says unused. So
I try "rcapmd start" it says "apmd not supported by kernel".
Is this going to require a kernel compilation? And if so, how do I compile a
kernel so that it still uses the SuSE bootscreen and bootsplash and all those
pretty bouncing icons? :)
BTW: SuSE 8.1
Thanks in advance!
I have been using the SuSE packaged Apache and PHP RPMs. Now I am trying
to setup an apache install with php support uisng the tarballs from
apache.org and php.net. I have downloaded Apache 1.3.27 and PHP 4.3.1
Everything works except, I have to put the extension on the file name I
want in the URL...
for example instead of saying "http://site/test" I have to say
same goes for my PHP scripts, If I add the ".php" extension to the URL I
am ok, without it the page does not come up.
What configuration directives should I be using to not have to use the
I have the "handmade" install in /opt/apache_1.3.27 and SuSE's is
started via. /etc/init.d/apache so I swap between the two as I try to
narrow this down.
I've had a delivery of some new hardware components, including
everything but the kitchen sink - a new mainboard, CPU, video card,
memory, CD-RW, and floppy drive. I'm keeping my HDD from my
This is my first hardware upgrade since I've been using Linux (SuSE
8.0), and to tell you the truth I'm a bit wary. All the new components
should be compatible with Linux (see my previous post), but I don't
really understand how hardware setup, configuration and drivers
work in SuSE. Yes, I'm of the lazy generation where one grew up
just waiting for Windows to auto-detect the new hardware, try to find
a driver, and copy one off a disc where required. :-(
I take it the way to go is to put together the hardware, start up the
system, and then use YaST to configure the new components? Will
there be drivers required (e.g., for the ATI Radeon 7000 video card)
that might not be immediately available and need to be downloaded
from the web? Where is a good place to start looking for drivers?
I'm very grateful for any help and tips you can offer.
I'm having a problem with traceroute. When I run it (e.g. traceroute
weblore.com), it pauses for a bit, then prints out a series of hops with
absolutely no information. After a bit, it repeats this. Here's a sample
linux:/home/michael # traceroute weblore.com
traceroute to weblore.com (188.8.131.52), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets

Is there something I'm missing?
thanks to a pointer by Jerry Feldman (thanks!) I found out that what made my
hard diic grate during boot was indeed the swap partition. To solve the
problem, i tried refomatting the sawp partition, but could not find any way
to do that (I have SuSE 8.0), neither in Yast nor with command line tools.
I tried deleting the swap and recreating it as a reiserfs partition, in yast,
iand always got an "fdisk failed" error. After several tries, i decided to
"continue" instead of "reboot", and i had an extra reiserfs partition and no
grinding. When i deleted that partition and put the swap back in, though
(again after several fdisk failures), i got the same grinding back.
What i was going to do now, is to delete swap once and for all and never touch
my partition table again, but i would like to be sure nothing else is going
wrong wth my hard disk.
So i would like to know:
1. is there something like "scandisk" under linux (sorry for the "MSism"!)
that checks the *surface* of the partition?
2. how can i reformat the swap filesystem (if there is such a thing)?
thanks again to all in advance!
I use Suse 8.1. I had to recompile the packaged balsa, because it is
unable to send email. But my compiled version is unable to launch any
application, like acrobat or xpdf to see an attached file.pdf on an email,
it freezes. This behavior happens in both balsa-1.4.2 and 2.0.6 (the
later is for gtk2). I don't remember if it happened with the suse packaged
Any idea why this could be?
Dear my friends...
Is there an open source software for designing or at
least to scetch the entity relationship of a
relational database design ?
