I'm using SUSE 10.0 with all updates (provided by SUSE). I'm having an issue
with Konqueror (file browser). I have it configured with font size 9. I see
this when I open it for the first time. The 2nd time (and every next time) I
open konqueror the fonts are reduced one point as if they were of size 8. I
see this behaviour with my account and other user accounts on my system.
Is it a known issue? I tried google but couldn't find any reference for it.
I have a question regarding the flash plugin. I'm currently using flash-player
220.127.116.11 with Firefox on SUSE 10.0. I just really want to know if it's
something on my side or if that's the way things are with flash version 7 for
I'm having a slight playback problem watching flash videos. The first seconds
are OK but eventually the audio lags behind the video (or vice versa). This
is an example from a video on youtube where it is easy for me to notice it:
I really notice the difference when the kid plays the 16 beat groove (in about
1:08). This is a P4 3.0 Ghz. so I don't think I'm having a hardware issue
here. Also, I played this same video (on same machine) with Windows XP and
Flash version 9 and audio & video on it were perfectly synced.
Please provide your comments.
My Laptop (Suse 10.1) has 2 NIC's, 1 ethernet and the other wireless.
If I'm sat in the office I'll use eth0 (wired) with DHCP.
But if I need to go down into the server room I use wireless via eth1.
The wired and wireless networks are on the same VLAN but there isn't a
transmitter I can use from the office so have to use 1 or the other.
The problem I have is that the OS doesn't know to switch, both get an IP
address but won't switch the routing from eth0 to eth1 (or vice versa). So I
have to manually shut down the adaptor I'm not using and restart the other
which is a little annoying as my fellow co-workers using the same laptops but
with Windows don't have this problem as it knows to use what ever network is
I also use it at home on wireless, it would be nice to be able to configure
the machine so that I could use it at anywhere without having to constantly
reconfigure the network settings.
Is this possible under Linux? If so how?
Perhaps some of you will recall a wonderful table of Linux equivalents to
specific Windows softwares which was located at the following URL:
It was a wonderfully handy thing, but it has disappeared. Does anyone know
if this table has been hosted elsewhere?

I don't like the way go daddy boast in the news, moving to Windows is
more likely a strategic plan to affect stat percentage of Windows being
used as web server by including parked domains.
Now our go daddy SSL certificate is expiring (no surprising we choose go
daddy the first time: because they made more advertisements), I wish to
take this chance to use another certificate issuer. We need cheap
Intranet level certificate, from a certificate issuer that is more
Linux-friendly. Which certificate issuer Linux admins prefer? For me not
necessarily a USA company.
In my case we cannot use CACert.org.

I've found out a bit more about my problem syncing my palm with
Evolution on Suse 10.1. It's something to do with Evolution, not the
host OS, or the palm. I know this because I came across 'pilot-xfer'
and that works just fine. I hit sync, run 'pilot-xfer -L' and I get the
beeps, and a long list of all the databases in the palm.
But Evolution still doesn't take any notice of the attempt to sync. Am
I missing something as trivial as a button on Evolution to make it
start a sync? I don't see one, so I'm expecting that it will notice the
/dev/pilot link pop into existence and start the transfer. Perhaps
that's not how it's meant to work. I should point out, I'm totally new
to Evolution, I was using a KDE tool previously.

If there's one thing that makes this list different from most mailing
lists, it's the absence complete help links at the bottom of each list
post. Right now down there there are what looks like 3 links, but two
are email addresses, and #3 is just a link to the mailing list archive.
Those are all well and good, but there needs to be at least one http://
address for a FAQ or somewhere else to get started from, as the mailing
list archive ain't it, unless the goal is to get ever subscriber to post
here first and look for a FAQ later.
I installed 10.0 from the box DVD. I would have thought this type of KDE
install would automatically give me access to common standard file
types. I was obviously assuming to much.
I got an installation instruction CD for fixing my printer. On it is one
mpg file. When I tried to open it with Kaffeine, it crashed. When I
tried to open it with Konq, it tells me no plugin found to handle this
resource, xine couldn't find demux. I opened YAST software management,
and the list of plugins is a mile long. I also searched there for demux,
and found 2 gstreamers and 1 ogmtools, but nothing that has anything
obvious to do with Konq.
What am I supposed to do to make something play this mpg file, put it in
a windoz box?

in SuSE 9.0 "su" resets the PATH and then sets it to some value
for root. Especially, the "." entry (that the users had) disappeared.
Calling "su" in SuSE 10.1 does not reset the path anymore, and so
root suddenly has "." in his path, although CWD_IN_ROOT_PATH is
set to no. This is really really bad because you don't expect it.
"su -l" is not a good alternative because it changes you current
Can I revert to the old behaviour of su? Was resetting the path a
feature of su, or of the shell scripts in /etc/?
