  1. Some DVDs just can't be copied in Linux. Some DVDs have intentionally built in bad sectors which defeat any Linux program I've ever tried and can only be backed up/copied by a windows program like AnyDVD. Also, even if there are no bad sectors built in or from scratches, some DVDs have 99 title copy protection which baffles k3b, dvdbackup/mkisofs, and k9copy but dd will make an iso of them.
  2. Zypper dup is a bad idea sometimes when there's a major change in the x server. I have no problem with 12.3 on most of my machines but I have a new intel atom machine that 12.3 simply won't intstall on in any mode, normal gui, text mode, failsafe mode etc. I may have to use a different monitor or something. but 12.1 and and 12.2 havw zero problems. But, if you have a seperate home partition, you can clean install 12.3 just don't format your home partition and all your stuff will still be there.
  3. There and update finally that fixes vsftpd in 12.3. It was released on April 8 but I didn't notice it till now. So, no need now to use factory version and it only took about a month.
  4. The factory repo has a new vsftpd rpm that came out Fri. I tried in 12.3 and it fixed it. It installs cleanly with no missing deps. Like 12.2 though, you stil have to add: allow_writeable_chroot=YES to the /etc/vsftpd.conf file like in 12.2. I would guess(hope ) that soon there will be a normal update for 12.3 that installs this version.

  5. That is, the 12.3 ver of vsftpd runs perfectly in 12.2
  6. That's backwards Bruce. The suse devs haven't caught up with vsftpd. I installed the 12.3 rpm in 12.2 and it vsftpd perfectly.

  7. Of course you saw "years and years" of the 503 error. That's the NORMAL error message for an incorrect password! Nothing new in 12.3 with that. What IS new in 12.3 is getting the 503 error with the CORRECT password. In the suse factory repo is pure-ftpd. I installed it and it won't work either. Nor will the versions of vsftpd from 12.1 and 12.2 when installed cleanly in 12.3. I don't care how you hold your coffee.
  8. "503 incorrect login errors" is normal and has been for years when the passwd is incorrect , nothing new about that 12.3. I have been using vsftpd for about 10 years and am not about to change forsuse 12.3. 12.3 is broken not vsftpd.
  9. Ok, you gotta hit the benchmark tab after pressing F9. Heaven Benchmark v2.5 Basic FPS: 103.5 Scores: 2607 Min FPS: 49.4 Max FPS: 174.3
  10. Have you run it on 12.1 x86_64? It won't ever get done for me. It seems to just loop indefinately. I ran it, pressed F9 to run a benchmark and it ran for almost 30 min and never quit so I quit. Using Unigine_Heaven-2.5. How long did is used to run, 4 5 min? Edit: this is what I used: http://unigine.com/download/torrents/Unigine_Heaven-2.5.run.torrent
  11. I installed the slitaz rolling ver from http://mirror.slitaz.org/iso/rolling/slitaz-core-4in1.iso then downloaded firefox-custom-9.0.1.tazpkg from https://fs.hlrs.de/projects/live-ptd/index.html . I then did as root: tazpkg remove firefox then: tazpkg install firefox-custom-9.0.1.tazpkg Firefox 9.0.1 was then in the apps/internet menu and it displays http://distrowatch.com/ ok.
  12. What link are you using? This works for me right now. http://distrowatch.com/
  13. Update to my earlier post about the nvidia drivers and slow glxgears ( about 9000 fps). I just did a clean 12.1 x86_64 install, installed the nvidia drivers and now my fps is near what "it should" be.

  14. Well, I don't know how to prove it duanester, but it wasn't there then.
  15. You probably installed the unstable version because the stable version wasn't even in the packman repo until nearly 2 months after 12.1 was released. Looking at http://packman.inode...timedia/x86_64/ : My install dates from Nov. 17, 2011 and I had same problem so I added the 11.4 repo to get the stable ver for it then later replaced that with the 12.1 repo stable ver.
  16. Oh, I see. The edit button is still there but so faint I didn't see it.
  17. I know that Bruce as always. I still wonder why it's so much slower in 12.1. I have desktop effects turned off.
  18. I've posted so little lately. What happened to the edit button? I meant 9000+ fps above.
  19. The nvidia repo is ready now though the drivers are not selected and installed automatically like they used to be. Added now populated nvidia repo. I did "uname -r" to see that I was running the 3.1.0-1.2-desktop kernel. In Yast software, I searched for nvidia and selected x11-video-nvidiaG02. YaST automatically added nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop and nvidia-computeG02. I then accepted and rebooted and the nvidia driver was running ok. I did NOT do any blacklisting or adding nomodeset to menu.lst. This worked this simply for my GTX 470 card but I suspect I'll need an xorg.conf for my GTX 430 like I always have. I have no idea why this same GTX 470 does only 8000fps in 12.1 when it does 20,000+ in 11.4.

  20. Odd desktop. This is what mine looks like by default AFTER installing the nvidia driver. Before installing the nvidia driver there is no side dock/menu. I also did "apt-get install mesa-utils" and glxgears runs ok with the default video driver but locks up the desktop after installing the nvidia driver,..the mouse moves but won't do anything But the keyboard works so a ctrl+alt+F2 lets me re-login and shutdown cleanly. I'll admit to generally hating major desktop changes as a rule, but this one baffles me. What the hay ain't broke that they're trying to fix?
  21. You can get it here http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/opensuse/distribution/11.4/iso/
  22. The same place you downl0aded the iso: The md5sum file is named openSUSE-11.4-DVD-x86_64.iso.md5. Edit in the correct name of the iso then: [email protected]:/mnt/sdc2> md5sum -c openSUSE-11.4-DVD-x86_64.iso.md5 openSUSE-11.4-DVD-x86_64.iso: OK [email protected]:/mnt/sdc2>
  23. You didn't point it at a file containing the md5sum. You pointed it at the iso itself. Plus, unless they've fixed it, you need to edit the md5sum file to the correct name of the iso.
  24. I just added packman and vlc repos and selected my usual multimedia apps and their bunch of deps. I did NOT edit zypp.conf or do anything else. The (new) default package manager in yast downloaded everything before installing. So, that's a welcome change.
  25. I didn't make that up Bruce. The checksum files were exactly like I said at 2 different mirrors. Hopefully, that will or already have fixed that.
