does some one out there have a list of the packages that are missing
from the CDs but found on the DVD version? it would be nice to have that
so that i wont have to copy 8gb of stuff and search through for
individual packages. i heard that there are 1600 packages on the dvd
version but i dont know exactly which.
I'm running the standard wine installation from a fresh 9.2 setup... Any
games I try to run on wine will destroy my X session. It won't return to
KDM, the screen will just go black, as if I had selected a bad screen
resolution; the only way to get out of it is to CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE
(jumping to a ctrl+alt+F1 terminal and killing the wine process won't
work). Apps that don't require full screen work just fine. I'm running a
ATI 3D Rage II, 1280x1024, 24bit color. I know, it's old, but it worked
just fine on suse 9.1.
I'm guessing it's something to do with the adoption of X.org instead of
XFree86, the major graphical change between 9.1 and 9.2. Has anybody
else experienced such issues? I've been using linux since mandrake 8.1,
but I haven't started messing with wine until recently.
Does anyone know what is going on? This is a new installation I
registered antivir with the old installation I get the same message with
the Suse registration and with my registration, with the Duzako on or
linux:/home/papa # antivir --update

I did a YOU on my 8.2 system and saw nothing there for 8.2, but when I
hit finish it d/l'd a new 2.4 kernel 2.4.20-127. It went OK, now
running, but it got me thinking that I have seen several instances
where an update gets on YOU but is never listed, nor explained. Usually
I like to stay up-to-date, but it would be nice to know something about
why an update is avail.
Have any of you experianced this?

I have a box I was using to setup mythtv using SuSE Pro 9.2. Its an
Athlon XP 1500 with a WD 200GB drive, 512MB RAM.
I had partitioned it with a 100mb "/boot", 512MB swap and the rest as an
LVM storage group, which I then divided up into "/", "/var", "/cache"
The only unorthodox thing I did (and I say that only in hindsight) was
use the partition editor to change my "/mythtv" partition from Reiser to
XFS while the partition was mounted. I had read that was much larger for
large file. When I rebooted no I got a screen fully of numbers (TTY1,
TTY2, ....) and no root partition found.
I used CD #1 and asked it to automatically repair the system. It says it
cannot find any partitions with Linux installed - of course I've had it
rescan multiple times. The partition editor still shows all partitions
as they should be.
What should I do next?
Thanks in advance - Richard
I have a strange problem with dhcpd.
1. the setup: nibbio (SuSE 9.2 on amd64) is connected to a DSL modem with
ethernet device 1. Device 2 connects to my local network on which two
other PCs are connected. I am running dhcpd (from the stock distribution)
on nibbio which hands out leases on the private subnet. So far so good.
2. the initial problem: Just recently, out of the blue, the eth device
order decided to change, i.e., device 1 is now eth1 and device 2 is now
eth0 where they were previously coming up the other way. This foiled my
dhcpd server which was tied to eth1. After googling a bit I found that
with kernel 2.6.x the devices were now called eth-id-MAC whith the proper
MAC addresses in order to positively identify them and that aliases
introduced in modprobe.conf wouldn't really make any sense anymore or
would tend to be irrelevant (see for example:
So, I decided that the way to go would be to tie dhcpd to
eth-id-MAC_of_device_2 rather than eth1 which it had been set before.
However, this makes dhcpd fail with the following error message in the
Dec 30 15:52:38 nibbio dhcpd: No subnet declaration for eth-id-00:09:5b
Obviously, eth-id-00:09:5b is not the entire interface name. Apparently,
dhcpd only takes the 15 first characters of whatever is given to it. I
confirmed this behavior by leaving out eth- in the DHCPD_INTERFACE field
and by trying just the MAC address. dhcpd fails to run in any case and
only 15 characters are given.
Has anybody else seen this problem, and perhaps found a solution?
Best regards, Alex.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm
not sure about the former. Albert Einstein
is there a howto out there or some sort of instructions or tips that you
could provide that could explain how to convert the default settings of
the suse 9.1 and 9.2 systems to use MailDir instead of MBOX.
i need to setup my system for multiple domains and include
anti-spam/virus features but they appearently require the usage of
MailDir instead of MBox.
All handed help is greatly appreaciated

To those suse users who likes music and computers, I've build rpms with the
latest rosegarden4 sequencer version 0.9.91 - a.k.a 1.0pre1 -. It looks very
nice as you can see from their site:
I've updated the SuSE 9.2 version and backported to SuSE 8.2 and 9.0. As I
have not any accesible system with SuSE 9.1 there are not packages for it at
the moment :(. I think you can rebuild src.rpm for 9.2 without problems if
you have installed all needed for build packages. For SuSE 8.2 and 9.0 I also
backported all needed libraries.
You can download them from the directories in
or in the apt suser-gbv component. Take a look at it. ;-)
Happy new year 2005.
