Try using ls with the --format=vertical option. This is supposed to be GNU default so I don't know why it's not working that way on Suse.

Yes, jay73.
Linux has no discipline. Some distros have strange functions. This is the worst thing in Linux.

In some distros it is necessary to mount your USB and CD-ROM.

In some distros place USB and CD-ROM in device folder and some distros place it in mnt folder.

Fedora has difficulties with Flash player.
Latest Fedora7 doesn't recognize my SATA-2 hard drives.
I can't install Fedora7.

People get tired of Linux when facing problems. However, I like Open Source and try my level best to overcome strange problems.

I can't fathom out what Tinkster says here.

Hehehe, it seems like Tinkster didn't notice that you were the same person who started this thread. Or he badly wants your to re-read his suggestions. Anyway, if the --format=vertical option does work, then it's most probably an item missing in your bashrc.

And I'm a bit puzzled to hear you can't get SATA-2 to work with Fedora7. That's a real pity because I had my doubts about upgrading but I'm pretty glad I did. Is that an exotic motherboard you are using? I have to say that it's working perfectly fine for me but then you're not the first one to make this complaint (it seems that Nforce chipsets are particularly prone to these SATA troubles). Have you tried setting your BIOS to IDE mode as a workaround?

As for flash, that's working fine, too. I'm using firefox 64 bit so I had to install nspluginwrapper but other than the little extra work, I haven't had anything to complain about.

I discussed this the problem of installing Fedora 7 with some people in Fedora forum. I am sure you know Fedora runs its own forum.
Many people in the Fedora forum faced the problem I had. So this is a universal problem.
I don't have any special motherboard. It is an ordinary or rather a rotten one.

It may be a bug or rather the person who wrote Fedora 7 did a sloppy job.

As you suggested there are a couple of ways to solve the problem. However, I didn't have time for the moment. I will install when time permits.

I'm perfectly aware of who he is, and that he posted a question
(yet again) that reading the man-pages and applying some thought
may have rendered un-necessary. He's a master of that art.


I don't know whether he posted the WHOLE output of what disturbed
him or not, or just the top few lines. Or whether he managed to
create directory names with trailing spaces. The -T 0 tells ls
to use whatever columnation it thinks suitable; if it doesn't display
columns the most likely thing is that what it tries to display won't
fit nicely (e.g. at least ONE of the names in the output is much longer
than the others) into columns.



Cheers,
Tink
