I'm using SuSE Linux 9.3 now since it has been released.
When 10.0 final came out, I installed it and realized, that my LCD monitor
couldn't handle the video frequency (the message was: "Video frequency too
There, i parked 10.0 and waited for 10.1.
Now, 10.1 RC1 is out, i've tried that version to install and got the same
fault during installation progress (at the point where you can set up the
SuSE now runs in version 10.1 RC1 in a screen resolution of 800x600 with a
hardware manufactor of Hyundai, model L50S. As soon as I try to run a higher
resolution, the monitor can't handle it.
Physically, I have a LCD monitor manufactured by Hyundai, the model is called
L70S, it's a 17" screen.
I have already tried to change the frequency parameters in SAX2, without
The reason why I'm wirting on this mailing list is because i already had the
problem on the released version of 10.0 so maybe i'm running into troubles
which already are in the released version.
I can't imagine that I'm the only one having such kind of problem, so maybe
one of you have a simple HowTo for me, I'd be so very glad to hear.
Thank you a lot!
You sure know the situation, that you have erased some files, but after
you see, that they are still visible, because the database had not been
I have forgotten how that is to be done.
Can anybody help me ?.

I've been trying to set up faxing under 10.0. I've added a modem
using hylafax's modemadd, specifying ttyS4 as the correct modem device.
I did a test run using jhylafax and it connected to my cell phone
After a system reboot neither jhylafax not susefax (which errors in
java) can find the modem. KDEPrintFax errors with:
Sending to fax using: /usr/bin/capisuitefax -d '***1928'
can't write to queue dir
(Note first three digits of phone are grunged be me for this message.)
/opt/fax/Mike has attributes of 777 as does the intended fax
Also is there a way once I get this sorted out to just print to teh
fax-modem using cups?

I'm replying to opensuse@ as well, please continue the thread there, if
I didn't try with an nvidia card, I have Intel on-board video, but I get
the same crash when trying to play video with the xv driver. It's
because the Intel driver does not have yet the capabilities required.
But the nvidia driver does.
Make sure you have these options in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
DISPLAYMANAGER_XGL_OPTS="-accel glx -accel xv"
If -accel xv does not work for you, try -accel xv:pbuffer
If still not working, open your media player without any movie and set
it to use video driver xshm instead of xv.
It will be much slower, but it works for certain. It's the only way to
see video on my Intel 915, that does not have fbo or pbuffer
capabilities in the driver.
I have a 9.2 system here where the network card(Realtek 8139) and the
on-board sound have the same IRQ.
I know this because it is mentioned when I boot the machine on the
listing of the HDDs cofigured in the BIOS. In addition RTFM indicated
that the procinfo command shows the IRQs, relevant details pasted below:
irq 0: 1495304 timer irq 9: 690 uhci_hcd, uhci_hcd
irq 1: 1881 i8042 irq 10: 14983 eth0, Ensoniq AudioP
irq 2: 0 cascade  irq 11: 0 acpi
irq 3: 102 irq 12: 37136 i8042
irq 4: 8 irq 14: 13890 ide0
irq 6: 14 irq 15: 18097 ide1
I would like to move the Ensonique on-board sound device to another IRQ
but do not know how. What is the 'correct' IRQ for sound devices? I
think it was 15 but I would prefer to leave te ide items alone.
Would moving eth0 to a different PCI slot help?
I use at least four keyboards -- US normal, US international, Indian
Devanagari and Indian Tamil. I would like to assign keyboard shortcuts to
each of these individually so while typing US normal I can shift to US
international without reaching for the mouse. Back in Windows where I use
Keyman (http://tavultesoft.com) I have this facility.
Please tell me how I can assign individual shortcuts. The KDE Control Center
Keyboard Layout dialog has some stuff called Switching Options and Xkb
options but they do not seem to contain what I want.

I'm editing some videos with Kino on suse 10.1 beta. When I try to
export to dvd I get an error because (as I read in the shell where I
sh: mp2enc not found.
Now, if I enter mp2enc in www.rpmfind.net I get a lots of hits showing
that mp2enc is part (on Mandriva) of mjpegtools. Since I have that rpm
on the SUSE CDs I thought I'd install it. I had no problems to do so,
but mp2enc isn't part of that package. Why isn't it there? What is the
suse rpm containing mp2enc?

The default installation of SuSE printers uses A4 paper, which will cause your
printer to hang up. It happened to me and it took a while to figure out what
was going on. CUPS also has to be told (separately, I think) what the paper
size is. For Americans, it should be letter size. The setting is in the
filter parameters of the printer.
Since I ask lots of questions, perhaps I can do a good turn for others here.
I did a first round of mass recompiling of Packman packages for PowerPC.
As I needed to modify sources heavily in a number of cases, these files
are not (yet) integrated with the rest of the Packman website. All
packages were built on SUSE Linux 10.1 factory as of the RC2 state.
Y2pmbuild was used for building packages, so all my mistakes are
I have yet to implement secure installation sources (
http://en.opensuse.org/Secure_Installation_Sources ), so at the moment,
you need to download packages you want to install and use plain old rpm.
Ooops, I almost forgot it, the files are available at
Please let me know, if you have any problems with these packages! Bug me
first, and not the original packager, as the problem might be PPC
specific, and due to the fact, that I use y2pmbuild for everything
instead of PackMan specific build scripts...
I'm running SuSE 10.0 and Firefox 220.127.116.11. If I attempt to print the
displayed window using File / Print (and CUPS), the window prints correctly -
but the window showing the progress hangs up (and hangs Firefox with it).
Killing the window doesn't kill the process. I've looked for something about
this problem on Google, in vain. I don't know if the remedy lies with
Firefox, with CUPS, or with some combination of the two. Outside of Firefox,
printing works as it should.
Any ideas, anyone?
