  • 1. needing tape backups
    I'm looking for a decent tape backup device to put on my network so I can store source repositories and other data from multiple mixed os's on the network. My main backup node is a linux box and I can conntect with firewire, usb, or ether and plan on using an open source abckup software of either amanda or bacula. Can anyone suggest a tape backup device with at least 20Gb of storage, and up to probably no more than 300Gb.
  • 2. udevd not compliyng udev.rule ?
    I have a trouble with my scsci scanner (astra 1220 S) It is loaded with module aic7xxx, which creates device /dev/sg0 Device is created with permission and groups as follow : crw-rw---- 1 root root 21, 1 ao?22 2003 /dev/sg0 However, I tried to modify this by putting some rule in udev.rule, such as : BUS=="scsi", KERNEL=="sg*", SYSFS{type}=="6", GROUP="scanner" but WHATEVER I try, the rule is not taken into account. Last : udevd *should* be logging somewhere, but I never found the log ... Anyone for an idea as to where to start looking at ?
  • 3. Kernel 2.6 keyboard driver changes from 2.4
    Hello, I have a barcode scanner that used to work under kernel 2.4. But now does not work on kernel 2.6. It seems to be that this scanner send the whole string read to the computer through the keyboard and the kernel 2.6 now seems to be protecting against "many keys pressed" (a whole string could be interpreted as that). Does anyone knows how to solve this problem? my barcode scanner does not have an option to send the characters one by one. I have tested a lot of system to be sure that the problem was the kernel and I was right. These were my results: OS | Did it work? ------------------------ SuSE 9.3 | no Mandrake 10.0 | no Mandrake 10.1 | no RedHat 9 | yes Mandrake 9.2 | yes Windows XP SP2 | yes Any help will be very appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  • 4. Dual Monitors and Fedora Core 4 64
    Hi All, I'm desperately trying to get 2 monitors to run on a dual Opteron system running Fedora Core 4 64-bit. I've tried 2 PCI ATI cards, one PCI ATI card and the built in Rage adapter, and I've tried and Nvidia card. Nothing seems to work! I've also tried Matrox dual head adapters, but from what I can gather Matrox doesn't support 64 bit OS. Has anyone been able to get dual monitors working on a similar platform? Thanks!

DVD player AND CD Burner - SVCD Videos not accessible in Suse 8.2

I am using Suse 8.2 with Xine or kmplayer and watching movies on DVD 
works fine without problems. But i cannot watch movies on SVCD. When 
starting Xine or kmplayer to start the SVCD movie, Xine just hangs and 
kmplayer does not do anything.
I heard that there might be such problems with Suse 8.2 when there are a 
DVD player AND a CD burner installed in the PC - as it is the case in my 
In another PC where there is just one DVD player installed, SVCD movies 
can be watched without problems with Suse 8.2 and Xine ...
I have not found a solution yet. Does anyone have an idea ???

Hm.  What are the error messages you get when you open an xterm or
konsole and do "mplayer -vcd 2 /dev/cdrom" , replacing /dev/cdrom with
the device name of whatever drive you've put the SVCD in?  (NOTE: the
syntax changed in mplayer 1.0, you'd do "mplayer vcd://2/dev/cdrom"
there.)  Is this just with SVCDs, or do regular VCDs exhibit the same

There shouldn't be any problems with having a DVD-R* and a CD-RW in one
machine.  I have a CD-RW and a DVD+RW on my machine, and I can play VCDs
from either drive without a problem.  Both drives are using ide-scsi
emulation, of course.

Thanks for the hint. "mplayer -vcd 2 /dev/cdrom" works fine, but still 
Xine cannot play the SVCD. On the other hand, on another PC - with just 
a DVD player and no CD burner, with the same installation of SUSE 8.2 - 
kmplayer and Xine are able to play the SVCD videos.
I did not try VCD, since i don't have any.

1.Suse 8.2 Won't Recognize CD Burner

I did a fresh install of Suse 8.2. Today I went to burn a CD using k3b, but
it shows no devices.  In YAST2, my burner is shown correctly at
/dev/cdrecorder, mount point /media/cdrecorder, and the link is /dev/sr0.

I have read other posts saying that I need to go into lilo.conf, and add a
line to change it to SCSI, etc.

Do I really need to do this?  Isn't ths installer smart enough to set it up
correctly in the first place?

I've not seen the bad 0 block error on CD-R disks. The ones that I have
all say 1x to ??x. I have not seen a CD-R that does not say 1x to.....
but there may exist CD-R's that have a minimum speed of 4x. I have not
seen any. My guess is that this is an issue only with the so called "high
