I've been running into some errors with Sendmail on Suse 9.3. After
installing and configuring MailScanner, which starts in own instances of
sendmail, I was getting the following error;
Aug 1 13:57:47 sendmail-out: unable to write pid to
/var/run/sendmail.pid: file in use by another process
No other application, outside of MailScanner starting sendmail, was running.
On a Mandrake 9.1 box, that I have that is also running MailScanner, the
sendmail processes a split between an in and out session. For example,
# ls /var/run/sendmail
However, in Suse 9.3 there is only one pid file;
# ls /var/run/sendmail
Is anyone familiar with MailScanner running on Suse?
Many thanks in advance.
When I try to setup smtp authentication with sasl on 9.3, my mail log
tells me postfix is not compiled with sasl supprt. Huh??? I thought
leaving out mysql lookup support was shortsighted, but his is worse.
Does anyone know of prebuilt packages for SUSE 9.3 that supports mysql
and sasl auth?
In the past couple of weeks I have sent a few suggestions to the list
owner but have not received any feedback from him/her.
Basically here are my suggestions:
a) "Reply To" header - each SuSE list must use the "Reply To" header in
the messages sent to members e.g. for this list, it should be "Reply To:
suse-linux-e(a)suse.com" All other lists that I am a member of use this
feature. When members reply, they do not have to worry about editing
the "To" header or right clicking in their message body or whatever.
With this header the response _simply_ goes to the relevant SuSE list.
I don't understand why SuSE list manager is not configured to do so.
b) Digest mode - provide a digest option when member subscribes to any
of SuSE's list. Again, all other lists that I am a member of provide
this feature. Personally, I prefer the digest since the messages
downloaded are fewer. I am sure the mailer program for SuSE lists has
the digest feature.
c) Google search bar for each of SuSE list archives. At
http://lists.suse.com/archive/ I did not see any search capability.
Perhaps they will listen if enough people voice their opinion.

Linux is a wigwam: No Windows, No Gates, Apache inside.
I have a client who wants sophisticated web site tracking and analysis.
He was previously on a Windows server, and is used to the slick
packaging of WebTrends and DeepMetrix. Are there any packages like
that (GPL or commercial) for Linux? I am aware of Webalyzer, Analog
and awstats. He wants something that automatically produces an Excel
spreadsheet with graphs.
This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.
I´ve noticed some strange connections on my SuSE Linux9.0 Professional
and hope that someone can give me some advice what that is about.
In my iptables logfiles I found in regular intervals the following
Aug 2 16:14:28 localhost kernel: [FIREWALL OUTPUT-DROP] : IN= OUT=lo
SRC=111.222.333.444 DST=111.222.333.444 LEN=60 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00
TTL=64 ID=20562 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=43084 DPT=443 WINDOW=32767 RES=0x00
SYN URGP=0 OPT (0204400C0402080A00E8DCAA0000000001030300)
where the SRC & DST IP is my public fixed internet IP Adress.
As I discovered this I set my iptables rule to DROP this kind of traffic
but there the only thing that changed was that before I dropped the
traffic I got SYN & ACK & RST Flags in the logs but after setting the
rule to DROP there are only SYN Flags left.
A "netstat -v -n -e -a -p" displays the following:
tcp 0 0 111.222.333.444:443 0.0.0.0:*
LISTEN 0 7423195 28396/httpd2-prefor
tcp 0 1 111.222.333.444:42692 111.222.333.444:443
SYN_SENT 0 8701223 28396/httpd2-prefor
And to answer the question what listens on my Port 443, it is an apache2
2.0.53 BUT what I want to know is what kind of process continues to
access my apache from the local host via the Interface " lo ".
I´ve tried to find something in my apache logfiles but there is no
entry, neither an error message nor some kind of information matching
the timestamp I find in my iptables log.
What I´ve tried is to find some kind of error message generated by some
program after I blocked the traffic but there is no one to find.
What I´ve also tried is accessing the firewall logs with "tail -f" and
in another window the apache logfile as well but there is nothing to
Can someone give me a hint where to look for or what to do to get rid of
this or to get to know what kind of tool, proggie or whatever wants to
access my apache on port 443?
Posted on the FreeNX help forum, but no answer. I have FreeNX setup on a
server running suse 9.3 and am trying to connect with the nx client also
on suse 9.3, different machine. I get the following on the details from
NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 28190
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
NX> 200 Connected to address: 192.168.0.4 on port: 22
NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
NX> 204 Authentication failed.
I followed the installation procedure and also copied the
client.id_dsa.key file to the appropriate directory on the client
If I run nxserver --userlist I get my logon name listed.
Any help would be appreciated.

Well, ask the kernel developpers :-)
They decided to use swap space as space for swapping or suspending to
disk. It makes sense to me, tasks are just swapped out completely before
swapping out memory pages; it is a raw partition, no drivers involved:
just ideal. In fact, when restoring, some memory pages are not swapped
back in, they stay off for days. Look:
top - 02:42:07 up 16 days, 4 min, 25 users, load average: 0.08, 0.22, 0.27
Tasks: 166 total, 1 running, 165 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 8.3% us, 2.7% sy, 0.0% ni, 88.4% id, 0.3% wa, 0.3% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 775852k total, 682772k used, 93080k free, 13196k buffers
Swap: 1052216k total, 224240k used, 827976k free, 404580k cached
Notice the used swap area, and ram used, free and cached.

I just purchased a Samsung Yepp YP-T7Z 1GB flash MSP/OGG player which
I'm very happy with. Ahem...The tuner works great but I would like to
get my ogg collection onto the player and I don't have windows at home.
So, from what I understand, the player should appear as a USB mass
storage device with some folders inside for music, pictures, etc. to
which I should be able to copy my music.
The problem is that when I connect the player to the USB hub on my SuSE
9.2 box (with all available updates), the machine cranks away for about
ten seconds before it stops and then I click on "My Computer" where
nothing shows up. This behavior is unlike my 64MB USB flash drive that
I use which shows up perfectly and unlike my 60GB USB harddisk which
also works fine in this system.
So, what's up? Anyone else seeing this behavior? Anyone else using a
Samsung player with Linux?
hi there james.
Start with the second disk and boot or at the bootup of the first disk
tell it to start in text mode.
Do the install in text mode and when you go to the SaX2 portion of the
install, it will do a approximate best guess to get you into a graphical
Later on, you can google the dell and linux install and you can find the
proper setting for everything else.
Good luck and hope your brother in law gets it.
