I have an ASROCK K8VM800 mobo and I was wondering if I wouldnt have any trouble with SUSE 10.1 (64 bit version)

My whole stuff is:

- The mobo up there
- Sempron 3000+ (palermo, so it's 64bit compatible :p )
- 2x512Mb Corsair ValueSelect
- 80Gb 7200rpm SATA WD
- Radeon 9250 (but x1600PRO is on the way :D )
- HP 1410
- Monitor, non usb keyboard and mouse and a couple of speakers, LG CD-RW and LG DVD-RW (dual layer)

Also, what video processing program would you recommend? ( I Know Kino it's included but want to make DVD's out of avi files, mux and demux and stuff, that's my main reason for trying linux, 3 hours for a single dvd is no fun in windows :p )

More about : problem

Should work fine :-D

The only thing I'm not sure about is the proprietary ATI driver.

Check out K3b for CD/DVD burning.

I would suggest googling: Kino, Cinelerra, blender

Oh and I found yesterday that there was DOOM 3 on linux, WOAH! xD
Do you know if there is HW2 for Linux too?

May the holy penguin be with you my child!

WINE works in mysterious ways... it may take some getting used to...

There is a much friendlier commercial version called Cedega published by transgaming.

It's not perfect but it's pretty good and has good support :-D

It's $5/mo or $55/year.

IIRC Doom, Quake, Unreal and a few other games have native Linux versions ( see below )

It might be a BIOS issue or a bad burn.

Did you verify the md5 and or sha1 sums before burning the ISO???
June 4, 2006 3:24:30 AM

nope, didnt had time, Im in a hurry, cuz if I dont do it today I cant do it for a month or something, actually, I edited the ISO file :p , used daemon to make a dvd out of it and added packages for the vidcard, the HP and wine, among other stuff....I think that-s what fkd me, but still :S, if so, what can I do ¿already formatte this pc due to extreme circumstances and I don-t have the original iso right now:p

That probably messed it up :-(

What kind of internet connection do you have?

What country are you in?

If you can't get the original ISO back you're going to have to download a good clean ISO or at least a Live CD to make the machine usable.

1) yup, it whoudnt have but sh1t happens

2)Broadband, 512

3) Somewhere in south america where people knows about linux as much as a bacteria knows of rocket science....

4)Im still runnig XP but its kinda sad....mission failed if you like

Right now im running file scavenger just to see if the image is still there, I hope it saves my ar53 just like last time (2+Gb recovered from a bad overclock :p )

If file scavenger can't find it then you can:

0. download DSL ( 50MB CD ) and use that temporarily

1. download Knoppix ( 700MB CD or 3.1GB DVD ) and use that

2. download the SuSE install CD ( s ) ( 700MB each )

3. download a lightweight Live CD ( about 100 - 300MB ) and use that temporarily



If file scavenger does find the file then be sure to run md5sum and sha1sum on it!!!!

Will the 50Mb cd boot, install and then get the rest of the packages from my DVD (once that I'm in suse)

No, I'm afraid not. The 50MB DSL can't be used to install SuSE but it can be used to do a hard drive install of Debian, but it will take many hours to apt-get / download everything to make it more usable.

It will work fine as a Live CD but you will not have a lot of applications.




Knoppix is a lot larger @ 700MB but includes a TON of applications.

Well, I'm pretty much fkd :p 

Since I have like minus 25 minutes to end this, I'm re-downloading the DVD bootable (but this time I'll chek EVERYTHING, I'll count, print and double chek very friggin bit out of it) and I'll hope that some theacher "accidentally" misses classes one day to use it on me ¨¨

Hang in there :-D
June 6, 2006 11:18:57 PM

Total disaster :S:S

First, it wouldnt let me resize my Win partition, so I said "I give a fk about it, it's all backed up!!! let's blow this up", so, deleted de win partition and installed SUSE, everything nice, just minor stuff regarding network (hw stuff) and when I was goint to install win it wouldnt letme, I forgot to stablish the extended partition and set up all those as primary ones :p  anyways....restared again (this time ok) SUSE working fine (except the network problem) and then installed XP.....logged in, installed all drivers & stuff, rebooted and when loggin again on xp it would freeze when loading my config........after a lot of work I managed to boot from the suse DVD (it didn't wanted to boot from any drive :S:S:S:S) reinstalled suse, installed xp and in the final steps it hanged up, so it was fkd......started again this time installing x first on a 50Gb partition (done that earlier but again :p ) and reserverd the extra space for SUSE, since this computer is used by 4 ppl DESPERATE to email some relatives I'm leaving my little linux project for a while, approx a month or two, when I end this semester....but what do you think it happened when installing xp for the first time (just after installing suse correctly the second ime with the extended partition??) :p  cuz I don't want all that problems next time :p 

*sigh* tuxie abandoned me for a while....but even penguin gods have to pee from time to time
June 6, 2006 11:27:30 PM

:-(

I'm not sure what happened, I've never had a problem like that.
June 6, 2006 11:32:25 PM

MACBETH!!!

xD
June 7, 2006 5:29:57 PM

Interesting....

I'll try to do it a couple of weeks from now if I can

Also, I'm moving my tentacles to see if I can get another HDD (cuz 80Gb isn't enough!!! xD), I'll sell my old 9250 and that should take me half way done, probably by august I'll have a new HDD

Why are extended partitions a pain in the 455?
June 7, 2006 6:21:01 PM

The good news is, partitions don't have to be a pain, sorry I didn't stop in earlier, but as for moving from a Windows only machine to a dual-boot, i've done quite a few for many people usuing different distros.

My recipe for success:

1) Boot into Windows. Backup all the stuff you would hate to lose. Check it again, then one more time to make sure you haven't left anything behind. This is "just in case", like what you ran into.

2) Defrag the NTFS/FAT32 partition. This moves stuff away from the "end" of the disk (actually the center of the disk, but I'll refer to it as the "end")

3) Do a disk check for good measure.

4) Download and burn the GParted LiveCD. Use LiveCD to shrink the Windows partition. You may either leave the blank space blank and let the distro disk handle it (preferable in most cases), or divide it up how you would like it (linux_0's suggestion is a fine one in either case, I've used a slight variation of the Windows+FAT32 "Bridge"+Linux for years with great success)

5) Follow your distro's instructions for installation, including any special instructions for dual-booting

6) Enjoy!

As for the non-booting of a disk not wanting to boot, that is a bit odd, if you edit an ISO make sure to repack it correctly and make it bootable. I would actually just recommend not doing that and rather install the distro then upgrade the apps/drivers when you have a running system. Baby steps are the name of the game.
June 7, 2006 8:07:15 PM

I backed up and defrag before proceeding :p 

Right now my disk is partitioned 50Gb for win and the extra 24.5Gb are reserved for linux when I have time to install it

If everything fails, well, I think I'll implement your solutions, I really don't care if windows doesn't see my linux stuff cuz I'll be the only one using linux, the rest of my family would SCREAM if the start menu & outlook xpress dissappeared

"Where's Internet explorer????? and what's this "firefox" thing????? is it for downloading porn??? WHERE IN THE WORLD IS WORD!!!! BLASPEHMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS THE DEVILS WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Suse installed perfectly, the problem was that 3VIL XP with enhanced hanging algorithms....

Quote:

HAHAHAHAhaha! That's rich, I'll have to remember that for later.

Likely just a borking of some NTFS stuff corrupted some system file(s) or something, dunno. Maybe it could sense Linux and just rolled over. Nefarious in either case.

GParted is a godsend (or shoudl that be Torvaldsend?) when prepping a disk and absolutely required (or at least a similar, non-free tool *cough Partition Magic, which doesn't support Reiser, XFS, etc. cough when installing to a pre-loaded disk.

Good luck and Torvaldspeed. linux_0 and I will be more than willing to spread the good word.

Erm... maybe a bit late, but here goes.

Wine Is Not an Emulator. One o' those recursive thingies.

Wine provides a Windows API to Windows Executable files. That's pretty much it. It does emulate a c_drive, a registry, etc.. But it allows programs to run on the same processor they were written for/on, and provides an environment for them to run on. Wine rules, because it oft allows you to run games and applications at near full speed!

A good majority of Wine [arguably] includes Windows DLLs and such, or at least reverse engineered equivalents.

My hat is off to the dev team at winehq.org, however, great strides have been made to ensure ongoing compatibility. Follow linux_0's advice if you want a fully supported package, as long as you don't mind "subscribing".

Cheers,
June 13, 2006 10:26:56 PM

Thanks on the info bat-pal (your picture looks like a baman :p )

Personally, I don't care much about gaming or running win apps on linux, cuz this will be a dual OS machine (again, if anyone from my family looked for Word and don't find it heads will roll, its like living with techno-cavemen/women....

My main reason for moving to linux is just to test something new AND encoding, unlike most win-fan-users, I don't find funny to spend a whole night just to transcode+enhance+burn a DVD......and when I figured that SuSe came with Blender I was totally in love, being a 3dstudio2.5MAX user had the HUNGER for 3d since it stopped working after a reformat-reinstall stuff...*sigh* I just love windows, it f*cks me more everytime I install it....

June 17, 2006 11:03:18 PM

Well, I finally made it, I installed it, however, a couple of odd stuff happned
1) first it had net but after a reboot it hasn't (connected via eth to the router)
2) it doen's allow me to open my own /home/myuserfolder in command line to
install the latest radeon drivers for linux
3) my account needs root permition even for farting :p 

Since this weekend's time to linux is over next weekend will be all about using it (well, one day of the weekend, stupid college again)

Just to let you know

regards --------7H4_D00D3
June 18, 2006 5:41:09 PM

Coupla quick questions to help you sort out this thing:

1) Which distro did you end up choosing? (Be as specific as possible)
2) What does the output "ifconfig" say? (If it gives you "command not found", call it directly w/ "/sbin/ifconfig")
3) What does the output of "lspci" say? (If it gives you "command not found", call it directly w/ "/usr/sbin/lspci")
3) What is the output of "lsmod"?

With these details we can start to track down the most pressing issue, the network thing.

As for the inability to open your own directory, do a "ls -l /home/youruserfolder" to see the owner and perms. Also, I assume you are logged in as your created user. You or the distro install procedure may not have set up your user account properly, if that's the case it's no big deal to remove that account and create a new one.

However, you should only install important things like drivers as root, not as your user. If you're logged in as your user, "su" and then the root's password, then proceed to install.
June 19, 2006 3:17:30 PM

Ok, from the output it's obvious that the network interface is in fact recognized (or at least one of them is), the via_rhine module. You can verify the status of the hardware link via [code:1:e3c4328387]//possibly as root user, with su
mii-tools[/code:1:e3c4328387]

That will tell you if there's an issue like a bad cable.

Once that's determined, I have a question about the output from ifconfig you had posted: did you remove the IP address manually and replace with <<IP ADDRESS>> for security reasons or is that actually how it appears? If so, try to simply start the dhcp-enabled network service with[code:1:e3c4328387]//again, as root (su)
/etc/init.d/network start[/code:1:e3c4328387]

If, after this command, things look good (i.e. no errors), try to contact someone out in the "real world"[code:1:e3c4328387]ping -c4 www.google.com[/code:1:e3c4328387]

If that's successful (0% dropped, 100% delivered, etc), congrats, your network's fine. Make sure it starts on boots with [code:1:e3c4328387]//again, as root
chkconfig network 35
//tells SuSE to add network service to runlevel 3 (text mode) and runlevel 5 (graphical login)[/code:1:e3c4328387]

Let me (and linux_0) know how this pans out.

Next, can you please let me know the output of [code:1:e3c4328387]ls -lR /home
//specifically interested in the first bit of "gobbeldy gook" and the username/group associated
//next, as your normal user
groups[/code:1:e3c4328387]

With that info, I should be able to help out with why SuSE wants admin privs to do stuff in your own home.
June 19, 2006 4:19:13 PM

Wow, I'm from firefox on linux xDxDxD

I feel stupid....it was te firewall neglecting everything :p  while attempting what you told me to do it just popped a msg that unlocked my mind :p 

Anyway's,it's this what you want???
drwxr-xr-x 26 userfolder users 4096 2006-06-19 12:10


And yup, I manually replaced those entries with <<IP ADDRESS>>, y'know, gotta keep the goods safe :p 

What's that "gobbeldy gook" stuff?, it sounds irish xD
June 19, 2006 5:03:29 PM

Not to be a stickler or anything... but...

Since Torvald is the "Creator"... would that not make him God? Tux would be his messenger and Linux would still be the church.

Just sayin'...

;) 
June 19, 2006 6:07:51 PM

But Linus is real and Tux is imaginary :) 
June 19, 2006 6:21:34 PM

Ok, good, shoulda realized that you (or the installer) may have put up the firewall during installation.

The "gobbledy gook" (just a turn of phrase I use) corresponds to
Quote:
drwxr-xr-x...
which corresponds to the ower and permissions of a folder.
[code:1:282d958233]drwxr-xr-x
d: This is a directory
rwx:The owner's (userfolder) permissions (read, write, and execute)
r-x: The group's (users) permissions (read and execute)
r-x: everyone's permissions (non-group users)[/code:1:282d958233]This seems to be set up properly, so you shoould be able to save, edit, and read from that directory. I think the only issue you had with permissions is trying to install drivers (in this case, the ATI drivers) as a non-admin user.

Any time there's something important to install, like software for others to use or system drivers, you should use the root account to do the installation. Note that using the root account for daily tasks is very much discouraged as it allows more access than is usually needed. Look at it this way: do you use a sledgehammer to swat a fly on your friend's head?

Edit: Corrected assumption made as installer very well may have just installed the firewall settings without intervention.

Leaving theology out of it, Linux pwn0rz and M$ sux0rz

:-D

Ok the truth is all software sucks just in different ways.

Linux, BSD and Unix have some great advantages over closed source operating systems.

The only area in which they are lacking is gaming.

:-D

While that would be nice, I'll be happy if they just provide working binaries for Linux.

But they wont, they make profits thanx to MS, cuz Imsure they have some deals over here and there + Windows still is the most used OS in the whole world

That's my dream, someday make a cross-platform kick4r53 game (and make some money out of it if posible, but not @ windows-we-let-your-wallets-dry kind of style, that's why I asked you and bmouring about programming in other thread, I have some friedns willing to help with the modelling+texturing+animation part (after they learn how to, except oine who is a photoshopper) but none , nothing, anything about coding...*sigh* being surrounded by mecha enginerring students isn't good for programming.....

In a couple of months I'll have vacations, so I hope to get N3KK1D MODELL1NG SKILLZ when that happens and to lure more souls into my ambitious project, hopefully in a couple of years it'll be done (GOD, TUX, PLZ HELPME!!!!!!!), after all, the first command & conquer took 3 years of developement.

Most likely, it will remain as a dream.......but I hope it turns out to be true
