I originally posted this on a KDE list but the only response I got was that
someone else had duplicated the problem. He was also running 9.2 Pro so I
thought maybe it's a SuSE thing....
Here's the problem. When I exit Knode the window goes away and all appears
normal. However there is still a Knode process running so the next time I try
to read news the program won't start. I have to find the process and kill it
and then, of course, all is well again.
It's SuSE 9.2 Pro, KDE 3.3.0, Knode 0.8.0 on a P4.
Ideas on what's wrong? Or even how to further diagnose this?

So, both mozilla and firefox have really enormous fonts, not in the
webpages but in the applications themselves. I've spent about an hour
trying to fix this by adjusting the font sizes in both the applications
and in the kde preferences but nothing changes the enormoun fonts.
Anyone who can help will have my eternal gratitude ;-)
I used to get this kind of cups-related error-message, where I have no
idea, what the "Unknown Location directive #" would mean:

Any advice please, what I'm missing, or what is wrong? I have all the
recently released YOU updates installed, so "cups-1.1.20-108.22" ...
Sorry , my numbers were wrong, the problem is with 9.2, worked with 9.1
My floppy is read only, all the time, regardless of floppy or how tab is set
Suse 9.2 always sees it a write protected drive
currently using this from /etc/fstab:
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto noauto,user,sync 0 0
orginally I had this in /etc/fstab and only root could mount or umount floppy
and most operations attempts gave an error that it was not allowed with
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs
fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
neither works properly
anyone know what the fix it- as with my Umaxs 1220s scanner everything worked
ok with SuSE 8.0, and 9.1 (BTW: still have problems with the Umax 1220s
scanner not working, gave up on that one, can reboot to SuSE 9.1 to use the
thanks in advance
I have a problem with the farm telephone lines, when you lift the receiver the
there is a 4 to 5 second pause before you get a dial tone,
The internet dailers don't wait long enough they just give a no dial tone
If I disable detect dial tone then it dials before there is a dial tone
Is there a way to make the dialer lift the handset and wait 5 secs before
I'm confused whether I setup PC for Asterisk right or not (it's
recomendation not to share any interrupt with other devices)..s....
Module qozap is alone (yet not sharing) in interrupt 209 (isn't this too
high for native
Is interrupt shared with others ? If yes, how to setup better ?

My /var/log/mail file is full of imap messages, which is
about the one thing in there that I'm not interested in.
How can I tell syslog to ignore them. Apparently
changing the config of the imap server requires a
recompile which I'd like to avoid.
ok, so far, no suggestions have helped, I'm still missing the ability
to switch users from the menu. I have Lock session and log out, but no
switch user, and I haven't found any control center menus to turn it
I searched the archives, SUSE help center, and google, with no luck.
does anyone know what RPM or package that is in? is this a KDE issue,
or SUSE ?
I am running SUSE 9.2 with the latest YOU updates installed.

Stephen, thank you very much for your help. I followed your suggestion
of mounting sysfs and reinstalled the kernel from the binary RPMS.
However, I still get the same error on a reboot. Everything works fine
during bootup until it hangs. The last lines prior to hanging are :
Waiting for device /dev/hda4 to appear:..... Not found --exiting to /bin/sh
sh: Can't access tty; job control turned off
After that I sit at the shell prompt. I would appreciate any help at
all in getting this machine back. I shall try the reinstall with the
repair option if nothing else works. I am hesitant to do that though
for fear it may mess up any installed RPMs on the machine, as it has a
number of applications installed on it.
