Who can i convert my DVD to VCD. DVD is some near about 1.3 GB and I
want it to get converted to 2 VCDs. How can I do that ?? Is there any
application in Linux. In K3b how can i part 1 DVD into 2 VCDs.
Yesterday I did a Yast online update, which seemed to go uneventfully.
However, it included a new version of the kernel, with the note that I should
reboot the system after the install was completed. I did so but then (as I
remember) walked away from the machine and left it running overnight without
doing anything more.
Today I came back to find that I had no network connection -- all addresses
were unreachable. The little light next to the ethernet jack was on, and the
lights on the hub to which the machine directly connects were also on. I
tried (in Yast) uninstalling and reinstalling the network interface card;
that had no effect.
I can think of four possible causes for the failure:
1. The Ethernet hardware failed some time during the night.
2. There's a cabling problem (other machines on the net are working fine).
3. There's a software problem induced by the online update.
4. There's some other software problem.
Any suggestions on how to go about diagnosing the failure?
Having just deleted more than half of todays messages to the list
because they were OT (although most not marked as such) I had an Idea,
Recently someone mentioned (on this list) that the SuSE-ot list is
fairly low volume.
Since there seems to be no stopping people making OT posts and
continuing OT threads on this list maybe everyone that subscribes to
this list for the purpose of asking questions about and using SuSE
Linux could move over to the low volume (OT) list and leave this list
for those that really should be posting on the other list. No-one will
be the wiser because if they were on the OT list where they belong they
wouldn't be posting here.
To paraphrase Loydd Bridges from the movie "Airplane"
"I chose a bad month to quit drinking" :-(
If anyone is interested (which I'm afraid they are not)
The SuSE-Linux-e faq that we all recieved when we signed up had this to
say about (OT) off topic posts...
A17. Sorry, we really have no choice. We've asked nicely over the years
for people to take their off-topic threads elsewhere in the
interestof keeping the messages per day on SLE under 200 and, well,
that just didn't work. We now have a list, suse-ot, that's devoted
solely to off-topic discussions. That's right, all off-topic all
the time. Email suse-ot-subscribe(a)suse.com to subscribe.
The new 9.2 manual addresses the very question I was about to pose to the list - whether to use LDAP or NIS. It just seems to me to make sense to implement NFS, and use PAM/LDAP for user authentication & directory service. If that doesn't make sense, I'd love to hear why not. Put another way, is there a good argument to use NIS in favor of LDAP? Any other issues I should be aware of here?

Looking to visit my local SuSE supplier in the next week or so to
possibly pickup my own copy of 9.2, BUT, I will only do so if the GUI
ability to setup the WINE system, under KDE, to run Windows programs is
I have read that Quicken is supported under WINE and whilst I know there
are Linux alternatives, the few I have tried are not as user friendly.
Please do let me know what results you have on running Windows apps on

I just read an article showing SUSE Linux is now going too be on Dell systems,
and won't cost more like it used too over RedHat, as they made you pay for
custom options. One step forward again, good job Dell.
Sorry for the off topic post, but I cant think of anywhere else to ask
I have googled and failed to find any valid answers.
I understand the principle of 95th percentile for bandwidth charging,
but I dont get how it is monitored.
Our bandwidth is provided through a Summit48 switch / router. We get
given 1MB/s bursting to 2MB/s.
Is this achieved by configuring our port on the switch/router to have
a max speed of 2MB/s ? then querying the switch/router every 5 minutes
for the current throughput ?
I am just interested really - I dont have any experience with high end
switches like the Summit. - Is it even possible to set a max bandiwdth
on the switch's ports ?
If I am off the mark here, can anyone point me at any info explaining
how it is implemented.
