I've installed icewm from yast but I cannot seem to access it. Does anyone
know how to change the display from kde to icewm? There doesn't seem to be
any options in the login screen or the yast sysconfig editor that lists it as
a choice for selection.
While I realize VNC can be used on multiple os's, I saw a snip of an article that POed me. It claimed that you couldn't graphically remotely administer a Linux machine before VNC. I assume it was a newbie (as am I), but one who didn't know about X, or Webmin, and came from a PC Anywhere background.
I have used VNC at my brothers, but haven't messed with x remotely;
what are the benefits/limitations of either, relating to a Linux installation.
Has anyone messed with X remotely going either way from a X.org machine to Xfree or vice versa.

I'm trying to go route some of Asterisk users already proposed for Asterisk
minimal system. I've started from Suse Rescue system image - I've put it
into HD partition. But since rescue is spawned from working system it has
empty /boot directories and is not directly bootable if put on HD. I've
tried to transfer or install kernel and grub to this partition, but no
success (I first access to partition with chroot to make additions...).
I get errors on kernel rpm -ivh installation (I guess there are no
directories and dependencies found in chroot) and also get error on
Could not find device for /boot: Not found or not a block device
Is there anyone more experienced with some advice, howto or example what
need to be added to partition to be bootable on HD ?
Thanks in advance,
I need a command line based packet sniffer. (I would use tethereal but
this system has no graphical stuff.) ALl it needs to do is collect raw
packets for analysis by ethereal on a different box.
I just attempted to install SuSE 9.1 on my new Dell Inspiron 1000 laptop.
When I got to the point of trying to resize the Windows partition (NTFS), I
was prevented from doing so because it was mounted. So I removed the mount
point and tried again. This time the resize operation did nothing -- no
response when I pressed Alt-S. So I tried using a custom partition, and I
got a message to the effect that this type of Windows partition could not be
The odd thing here is that several people reported in an earlier thread on
this subject that they succeeded in resizing the NTFS partition. So I'm
wondering why I got a different result than they did.
Fortunately I have a way around it by using Partition Manager, but it would be
nice if I could use the provided SuSE tools without having to resort to that.
After searching the archives going back six months I have not been able
to find much using "wireless" as the search string.
I am contemplating buying a wireless router and pcmcia adapter for my
laptop and would like to have any recommendations as to what to buy. I
currently use a Linksys router and have never had problems and may want
to stay with the same brand but a change is not out of the question.
