I just installed SuSE 7.3 a few days ago with a quite a little trouble involving getting the data from my FAT32 win2k partion completely defragmented so that the included partition tool could split off a chunk of the windoze partition for linux. I guess the directories in Win2k on a FAT32 partition are handled strangely, so you can't defrag them while windows is running. Eventually I found a tool to do that. Then, it still wouldn't work so I deleted my page file temporarily. Finally, it worked!
Anyway, I have been unable to get my US Robotics 56k modem to connect to the internet. I tried setting up wvdial's config and using it, but it hangs on a certain sound during the modem handshake and eventually returns with some error. Neither kppp nor kinternet work either.
I tried installing some linux drivers for my 3COM WINMODEM linked to on www.linmodem.org,
but I don't really know much about installing from source in Linux. I think there's a problem with header files or something.
I tried updating the drivers for my TNT2 card, since the ones installed originally by YAST2 only support OpenGL in software. The first time, I just tried installing them using the GUI rpm loader in KDE. First, my mouse pointer disappear. Then, when I tried some different things to fix that, and they all failed. So, I figured I'd just install over the new drivers with the old ones. So, I was back where I started.
I figured I would try again following the instructions provided on the FAQ or README (can't remember which) provided on NVidia's page. This time, when I was done I had screwed up the system so badly that when I rebooted, the screen flashed black several times as it attempted to use the new drivers. It failed and the graphical login never came up, instead it was the text login.
Any help with any of these problems would be greatly appreciated!
