Just got a Linksys WRT54G and putting it through its paces. PPPoE and
switch components work great, but I'm having trouble with wireless. I
had been using a 3Com access point, which my ThinkPad and Zaurus could
both see without issues, but neither can see the WRT54G. On the
ThinkPad, the output of iwconfig shows zeros for the WRT54G's MAC
address (i.e. it didn't associate), although kinternet's "wireless
connection" dialog and "iwlist scan" show it by ESSID with the correct
MAC address. Neither the ThinkPad nor the Zaurus have the access
point's MAC address specified. (I normally use 64-bit WEP, but also
tried with no encryption.)
What might I have done wrong? I've spent hours twiddling bits on the
WRT54G. It's a version 5, and I upgraded to the latest firmware (for
that version, it's 1.00.4). The ThinkPad is running SUSE 10.0 and using

"...GNOME is a disease...just tell people to use KDE."
Linux Magazine (Linux Pro in the US) has a 4 page review of the 9.3
release in the June 2005 issue, pgs 44-47.
"Novell's Suse Linux 9.3 is a feature-rich, and robust Linux
distribution. At first glance, the new version does not seem much
changed from 9.2, but a lot of work has gone on under the hood. The
distribution is definitely good for new users.
If you already have Suse Linux 9.x or a similarly recent system, the
update is only worth the effort if you are unhappy with your current setup.
If you use external media on a regular basis, the update is definitely a
good idea. . . . "

I have an audio cd ( commercial and no DRM ). It contains 20 wav
files some of which are bad ( disc damage ). "Looking" at the cd
with amarok reveals several folders as well. One of those
contains 20 ogg files. How can I extract the ogg files ? and
save them to hard drive. K3b cannot "see" the folders. Amarok
cannot play the files as it complains it cannot access them (
although it can "see" them ) and I cannot seem to mount the
disc. Is there some means ( ? copy iso to hard drive first )
that I can get at those oggs?

Is there a way of determining which modules, system services, drivers,
and processes I can do without, and dump them so they don't load or
start by default?
As examples: I'm running desktops, not laptops, so I don't need any
power or battery saving apps, processes, or modules running, right?
I also am not using a joystick, so do I need the drivers to load???
etc, etc, etc!
>I can se in the hardware compatibility list that the SCSI card Adaptec AHA19160 are supported by Suse Linux 8.1 but not by other versions.
Have anyone been working with this hardware on a SUSE Pro 9.2?
