I am using SuSE 9.3.
Today i updated firefox from 1.0.8 to 126.96.36.199-1.4 (using YaST)
After the update, as soon as i click the shortcut on my desktop firefox
starts 2 times.
The first is very quick available, but you can see that it tries to load
a second time, which fails.
I can use firefox normally after this.
When i start firefox from the "start" button and then the internet ->
web browser function, it starts normal.
When i make a new shortcut to firefox, and click it, again it tries to
open it 2 times.
When i look in the properties of the desktop shortcut (which is the
standard icon/setup), firefox is started with the command
The firefox shortcut from the "start" menu starts with the same command.
The first time i started firefox after the update (using the desktop
shortcut) it started normal. All further attempts try to start it twice.
This happens for all users, and on two different computers.
What went wrong and how do i correct this?

I downloaded the dvdrip RPM package from
http://packman.links2linux.org/index.php4?action=175&vn=2 for SuSE 10.1 and
it installed just fine. When I try to run dvdrip from the command line I
get the following:
Can't locate Locale/TextDomain.pm in @INC (@INC contains: lib
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .) at
/usr/bin/dvdrip line 21.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/dvdrip line 21.
In other words, it's not finding "Locale::TextDomain" in the dvdrip script.

Ideas as to how to get it to see the right files?
SUSE 10.1 doesn't see my internal modem (best data ISA, hardware based
controller) and when I try to configure my sounds cards ( cs4236B and
cs4610/11 accelerator) and error occurs with a message indicating it could be
due to a IRQ error. How does one even begin to address possible IRQ
I wanted to run Yahoo Messenger on Suse 10.1 but the Yahoo web site provides
packages for other distros than Suse. I tried to install Yahoo Messenger
anyway, and miracle, it worked. It brings to mind the question of what
requirements a package must meet to be able to run on Suse. How can I tell a
non-Suse package will be able to run on Suse (10.1) successfully?
Why does xgl have so many gnome dependencies such as gstreamer and
gnome-audio, why would a window manager need these. Being as I only use KDE I
would really rather not have all of these extra dependencies for gnome. Is
there a way around this and to not have to install these, thanks.

I've been having a problem with my graphics card and SLED 10. The
fonts are so big they take up a quarter of the screen, so the system
is basically unusable.
Interestingly the problem can be excaserbated on other distributions
by using XGL, but even if I turn off XGL in SLED I still get this
I've done a search on the web and the only other person I can find
with this problem was using the proprietary nvidia driver and a
GeForce 5200... but this was in 2004.
Is this a weird problem with my GPU? Any idea how I can fix this?
I'm running KDE under SuSE 10.0. Sometimes when I've left the computer
running for a while by itself and the screen saver comes on, I come back and
discover that there's no mouse cursor. I don't see any pattern to when it
happens and when it doesn't. So--
1. Is there anything I can do less drastic than Ctl-Alt-Bksp (which works) to
get the cursor back? It clearly must be something that I can do from the
2. What is likely to be causing the problem?
I have been trying out xgl and been reading up on xgl and have read that cvs
versions of xgl support twinview. I have installed xgl via yast but still
when maximizing a window it spans both screens. Am i missing a setting or do
i need a different repo for cvs versions, thanks.

I have installed inkscape-0.43-20 from SUSE 10.1 and have the problem that
truetype fonts in bold are not usable. That means: "Arial, Standard" in
Inkscape's font dialog is the same as "Arial, Fett". It does not seem to be
language issue as "Arial Black, Standard" is also the same as "Arial Black,
Bold". What works is italic <-> non-italic, but that's about it.
Bold fonts _are_ installed, xlsfonts also shows them and xfontsel
successfully shows a bold font when asked to (and a non-bold when asked
to). Maybe this is a bug of Xft or the GTK font selector?
