There seems to be no pattern in the messages.
What could be causing this, and what does these messages really tell ?

Ok, again as promised, I measured my home system/network for a contrast
comparison between all processors idle vs all processors pegged. First I
established a baseline for the house (systems down) including my office cd
amp (forgot that before). So... I removed the cd amp from the system load
The entire network up and idling consumes 625 watts (see previous post
for network compliment). I then shipped this command to each processor on the
network to get it cranking on a computation of pi to 50,000 digits:
time echo "scale=50000; 16*a(1/5)-4*a(1/239)" |bc -lq
The scale was chosen significantly large enough so that even the fastest
machine on the network could in no way complete the calculation before I
could take the measurement. ( to see the pi calculation complete on your own
system in a reasonable time set the scale to something smaller than 1000 ).
With all processors pegged the entire network consumes *780 watts*. So, to put
this in perspective, even with all processors pegged the entire network still
consumes 5% less power than my coffee maker. Over an (8) hour day the network
will consume 6.2 KwHr pegged vs 5.2 KwHr idling. The coffee maker consumes
about 6.6 KwHr over that same period.
Moral to the story?? Well, if I give up coffee.... I will be healthier and the
savings will completely pay for running my home network. ;-)))

Has anyone managed to install soundfonts using YaST? I'm currently trying to
run Solfege but without any joy. I have a soundblaster live card. Any
thoughts on how to get solfege going on SUSE 10.1 anyone?
I want to configure the SuSE firewall so that communication within my LAN is
uninhibited but communication outside the LAN is fully protected. Looking
at the firewall configuration in Yast, I see that the external zone is
protected but the internal zone is not. However, I don't see how to specify
that the internal zone consists of hosts with addresses 192.168.0.x. This
would seem to be a pretty common requirement.
It appears that the firewall configurator can specify that an interface is
external or internal, but I have only one interface (network card). It
connects to the LAN and to the router; the router in turn talks to the world.
It's a very common setup.
How can I set packages to NOT be updated via rug? I don't see any
options in the rug man page.
Also, it's set as locked in yast, so 'yast online-update' doesn't try to
update it, but rug does!
I have two machines running 10.0. On just one of them, probably because the
installation was an update rather than from scratch, the list of topics in
the left-hand pane of the Yast /etc/sysconfig window is out of date. (Under
Firewall it lists personal-firewall rather than SuSEfirewall2.) How can I
update that list? All my Yast packages seem to have the 10.0 version or
I'm trying to use Azureus-console from packman for SUSE 10.0 x86_64.
It requires jakarta-common-cli, but I can not find it any where. Any

Hi Joao -
please send your mails always to the list - some people do not want postings
from email lists to their address and, additionally readers of the list do
only get half the information. So - now to your problem. I do not know from
your post, but I guess you used konqueror to browse to the packman repo and
then right-clicked the file which for some reason did not work. I cannot help
you there, since I never did that. But you could try it out this way
1. Load down the w 32 codec rpm file to the disk
2. In a text console go to the directory where you saved the rpm file
3. Change to user root
4. Do 'rpm -Uvh w32codec-all-20060611-0.pm.0.i586.rpm' (without the quotes),
this installs the codecs on your computer
5. In order to check if it is really installed you could do 'rpm -qa | fgrep
w32' (but if rpm does not show an error, I never encountered a case where the
package was not installed, so this is probably not necessary)
If that does not help, please make sure you have all the needed packages. If
you have all the needed packages and it still does not work, please provide
some more details and maybe someone knows the answer.

I am in Taiwan, and the internet service really sucks. I can do a speed
test from my ISP, hinet.net, and get the 8 Mbps they say they are
providing. If I try the DSL speed tests from the servers in San
Francisco or Los Angeles, I get, if I am luck, 1 Mbps. I have noticed
that most of the time is waiding while looking up the site. Got some IP
addresses of those site, and enter them in the web browser, and it goes
about 10 times or more faster. It appears most of the time is for DNS
Now my Question. Would setting up a caching DNS server help this
situation and if so, does anyone have any guidance in doing this? I have
checed out the DNS setup, etc. before, and find it very confusing, so
any help would be greatly appreciated.
