SuSe & Problems


Hello

Recently I Installed SuSe 9.1 Linux Personal. It was a good experiance to install it instead of RHL. After Installation i have some problems which are

1. Where is Apache ? is it installed with SuSe. If yes then how to run it ? if not then where to find it.

2. My Sound Driver (Intel 845 Chipset On Board Named :AC97 ) Is detected by linux. & for first two days i was hearing songs very well. but today it fails to outputs. i tried to remove & reinstall hardware with YaST but problem is sticky.

3. In SuSe Linux is it possible to Connect Internet With Modem & Normal Dial up connection. actually i am using Kinternet applet to connect. My Internal Modem Dials & Make noise as connecting but after 1 minute it displays no carrier . mean while i am able to connect same ISP with Windows or RHL using same modem & line


Please Solve My Problem as early as possible


Thanks
Kirtimaan

You could check if you installed apache by going yo the yast2 -> install programms -> search and look for apache
If it is installed the configuration files can be foun in /etc/apache/conf
And to start it you should as root execute something like /etc/init.s/apache start
Hope this helps

Suse personal doesn't come with much of anything. Consider that the free download version of Mandrake is three CD's and Suse personal is only one CD. There is a lot missing. Suse users say that they prefer to download the professional version using the FTP installer on the Suse web site (not purchasing the boxed set if you are just trying it out).

However, whatever you download, if you like it, please contribute bucks back to the vendor by buying a boxed set or a shirt or something so they will be encouraged to continue their open source efforts.

Things don't "just stop working." What all software have you installed and configuration changes did you make before it stopped working. Do you keep a written journal of everything you do to your system so you can backtrack to find out where you might have gone wrong? If not, you need to start.

All Linux versions can connect to the internet using many different means. Linux excels as a networking platform. However, Suse personal edition may lack a driver for your particular modem, or maybe you had it powered down during installation and it is not detected. Maybe it isn't powered up when you boot up?

What is it with people insisting we solve their problems quickly? We don't work here, dude. Do I see a paypal transaction from you? I don't think so.

My best recommendation is do not use Suse personal edition. It's a very weak distribution.

Exclamation SuSE

Hello

First i am sorry about asking you the ''quick help''. As a user with trouble you can assume what he says . yes the words exactly i said. any way i understand it.

I am trying SuSe because i think that it is easy . i am trying it only with personal edition. for long journey i will purchase the professional version.

Thanks For Your Tips & i will keep that in mind. How can i setup my soundcard now as that was working for 2 days ? the
reinstallation in only the one way ?

Apache in not listed or searched with the 'Install Software' from yast. also no directory name apache is there on system. but httpd.conf file is there. ??

With Linux (SuSe or Other) is it possible to make Disk Less Nodes as Server have a large harddisk & client haven't one . they boot from network server. if yes then how..


Thanks
Kirtimaan

You can probably configure your soundcard in whatever the GUI is for linux configuration in Suse. That would do the trick. In Mandrake, I open up the configurer, and then choose hardware, and then choose soundcard and push the button to probe and set it up.

If you want to play with Apache, I recommend you download and install Mandrake. The free download comes with Apache and several other servers as well as a full development loadout.

It mounts my stuff auto-magically no problem. What version did you try?

Dude, you'll need to master the Linux system just as a desktop before you can even dream about configuring a server with anything approaching security in a new operating system. One thing at a time!

Run alsaconf as root from the console. That should solve your audio problems, it did for me.

running alsaconf from console works & i can configure sound. I think that it is better to configure current system ,troubleshoot problems rather than change it.
