Thanks, but this does not work. I think it has to do with ppdev. When I
rmmod ppdev, parport0 does not exist any more. Then modprobing ppdev
again creates it, but with 660 permissions.
I'm going to file a support request with VMware.

I have a Maxtor USB hard drive that I use for backup purposes. Previously
when I plugged the drive into a USB port, the drive was recognized
automatically and mounted to /media/USBDISK
I am using SUSE 10.0 (x86_64) version. I have googled on udev, hal, and
hotplug. I have looked at /etc/sysconfig and /etc/hotplug, but haven't been
able to figure anything out.
If I plug the drive into another SuSE 10.0 system it is recognized and all the
data is there.
I know the event that triggerd the failure, and it is related to Windows :).
My machine also runs vmware since the business has some apps that run only on
Windows. vmware has a feature that if the guest operating system has the
focus, then that operating system will recognize the usb device.
Unfortunately Windows had the focus when I plugged in the usb drive. A
number of dialogue boxes in both Windows and linxu opened. I was in a hurry
and clicked no on all of them. Anyway, after giving the focus back to SuSE
and replugging the usb drive, it doesn't recognize it.
I have found articles that talk about the entries to put in fstab if you don't
want hotplugging and automount, but it was convenient to have hotplugging
Any ideas on fixing this would be appreciated.

Would it be possible to create yast2 or rpm-md metadata in the projects
subdirectories (e.g. for projects/OpenOffice) ?
At least running a createrepo for 10.0 ? Please ? ;)
(@emoenke: I know there is apt-rpm metadata for it on gwdg.de ;))
BTW, current alternative is to use apt or smart:
yast2 --install smart
smart channel --add openoffice type=apt-rpm \
smart update openoffice && smart upgrade OpenOffice_org

Understandable -- but it would be nice if download.opensuse.org's

actually had the source. (Just a minor irritation on such a beautiful
I am running SuSE 10.0 OSS, Kernel 2.6.13-15.8-default, KDE 3.4 on
a Dell 4300 P4 512MB 40GB system, as a desktop system, not a server.
(All YOU updates are installed when available)
I have a problem viewing 'System Log' via Yast. Clicking on the
'View System Log' icon produces the normal window, but then the whole
system grinds to a halt, with all the available memory being used up,
including the Swap memory. I hate having to rudely shutdown via the
power button, but end up having no choice but to do so.
All other Yast modules work correctly, including 'View Start-up Log'. I
can only access the 'System Log' using an editor, such as Kate. Nothing
related to this shows up in the Log when viewed so I have no idea where
to check for the problem.
Until today, there has not been any problem viewing the log.
What could cause Yast System Log Viewer to run away with all the

I am looking into using rsync to make a copy of my existing home
directory(1.6Gb) and storing an exact copy on another local drive.
I have had a look at the man pages for rsync and notice that there are
tons of options. I have noted the options I would like below and ask for
some assistance in compiling the correct syntax of the coammand. I will
be running the cmd as root from a root terminal(Alt-F2) and the user in
question will not be logged on at the same time.
The switches I have identified are:
-v - Verbose @ I'd like to know what is happening
-c - always checksum # This makes sure the file on SRC is the same as
-r - recurse into directories # All the files in the subdirectories
-l - copy symlinks as symlinks # Should there be any if I haven't
created any, to my knowledge
-A - preserve ACLs (implies -p) [local option] #preserve permissions
-o - preserve owner
-g - preserve group
-t - preserve times #preserve the time the file was last edited
--stats - give some file transfer stats #Stats on what happened
-a - archive mode, equivalent to -rlptgoD
The command so far:
#rsync -vcrlAogt -stats /home/hylton /media/backup/
I would like the entire contents of /home/hylton copied to a hylton
directory on /media/backup. Would this cmd achieve this?
Should I swop some options out and rater use -a? Do I need D?
ie the command would be:
#rsync -vcA -stats /home/hylton /media/backup/
Does the first try at the command look right as I am wondering about the

I'm sure, in previous SUSE versions, apps like Rosegarden were included, but
this doesn't seem to be the case any more. I'm running 10.0 OSS - fair enough,
lots of stuff is missing from this. However, checking out the package listing
for Novell's release version shows Rosegarden absent (although Jack and JAMin
Can anyone tell me the best way to get audio sampling and mixing working under
SUSE 10.0? I'm wanting to start recording some of my music. It'll be through a
USB-connected M-Audio Black Box - this ought to be supported because it's
"class compliant" but can anyone confirm? And what's the best way to get
Rosegarden or other similar stuff (I'm also rather interested in Ardour, the
open-source DAW) working?
I was also wondering whether it might be easier to use Studio-To-Go, which is
a CD-based linux distro aimed specifically at being a home studio, with
Ardour, Rosegarden et al. all included and set up. Has anyone any experience
