1. Am I on the right mailing list for the following? - if not, please point
me in the right direction.
2. I have a Promise RAID0 array, I see that the Live-Eval can't handle
that. What about the full version?
3. The download of the live-eval iso image threatens to take 4 hours on my
600K broadband connection, mirror site I've tried seems to take less but
downloads the file with an html extension and if I rename it to .iso, NERO
doesn't like it.
4. It looks like Microshaft users are being lured away, it's a good aim but
are there some detailed step-by-step guides? I'm fairly PC savvy but I'm
lost with this so far

I am trying to run an xterm on an HP-UX 11 box. Before upgrading my
Linux from Suse 7.3 to 8.2 it worked without any problem. After the
upgrade, the characters accessed via the ALT-GR key are only accessible
by cut-and-paste in the remote xterm. The problem seems to be that the
mod3 modifier is not defined any more and that the ALT_R key does not
exist any more and therefore cannot be mapped to the mod3 modifier.
Does anybody know, how I can get the ALT_R back, so the xterm on HP-UX
works again properly?
Thanks in advance

Subject: i have a question about a solution you gave someone in
suse:XOpenDisplay in -lX11
i tried the solution and i got permission denied. i
tried it both in root and not. i still get permission
denied. sorry i'm a fairly new linux user. so any help
you could give would be helpful.

when i run SuSEconfig i get this message:

One of my SuSE 9.0 boxes has a "Powered By ATI" card (Sapphire Atlantis
Radeon 9000 Pro, 64MB DDR RAM). I've been trying unsuccessfully for months
to get the dual-head and 3D modes working on it. I'd like to get the TV-out
functioning as well, but that's not too much of a concern. All of these
features work flawlessly under "that other operating system", so the card
is definitely not faulty. Kernel compatibility doesn't seem to be an issue
either because I've been compiling the ATI driver module for my 2.4.x
kernels myself and it always loads fine. The versions of Xfree86 I've been
trying it with don't seem to be an issue either; I've used the 4.2 and 4.3
I got my hopes up when ATI released a new version of their Radeon driver
for Linux yesterday but after wrestling with it to get dual-head for 45
minutes I still can't get any further than before, which is: machine enters
run level 5, X tries to start, both screens go black for a second, then the
X server dies and complains, "Fatal server error: no screens found". ATI's
"documentation" is vague, but seems to allude to needing 2 instances of X
running in order for dual-head mode to work. It would be nice if they gave
instructions on how to actually do that. So I continue to use it in single
display mode. At least that works fine.
Does anyone have an 8500 or later series Radeon working in dual-head mode
with 3D? If so, please let me in on your secret, send me your Xfree86Config
file, or at least point me to some hard info on the subject. What little
info I found on ATI's website is useless. I've also tried SuSE's support
database, but the information I found there was badly outdated (i.e.,
dual-head mode requires 2 cards...).
Thanks in advance,
The deranged one

That didn't help either but thanks for the tip.
I tried to configure everything from the start once again but problem remains.
This flickering is quite annoying :(
I tried also knoppix LiveCD but there was same problem. First I start to
suspect hardware problmes but like I said earlier, in windows2000 screen
resolution is okay, I tried 1280x1204@85 and it worked, normally I use
1024x768@75 resolution in windows.
I uploaded XF86Config and XFree86.0.log files to the following location:
(because I hate long postings)
I hope somebody can give me a hint to resolv this problem.
does the xfree 4.4 config file are in folder:
since i use xfree 4.4 not all my mouse button work will with
i modified the file
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
and in xinitrc ( /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit)
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
imwheel -p -k -b "67"
my two button on the side of my mouse don't work.... before i could
do: back and forward in brownser with it... but now nothing....
with xev the side button of my mouse are not recognize...
