I didn't understand the description that way. FW_SERVICES_EXT_UDP should be
sufficient. If you use FW_SERVICES_ACCEPT_EXT instead you can also limit the IP
addresses that have access to the port.

Which package? I went into yast2 installation and selected update on all
installed files waited 2 hours for all packages to be installed again and
still same problem. I really do not know how to fix this. Google was no
help. This probem exits on 2 systems. Both upgraded and then installed
from scratch. Upgrade 1 10.1 to 10.2, 1 10.0 to 10.2. also wiped HD and
installed from scratch. I really do not know what is causing this. I can
install 10.1 on either of these systems and works not error, but 10.2 has
this error. I really am at a loss of what else to do to fix this problem.
Something must not be working. I also tried a network install. Same
problem. Retail DVD, Download DVD, Network install all the same problem.
Memory test for 48 hours no problem. What else can I try?

The reason I ask is this shows up using security software.

  [opensuse-security] Question on wiping S390 fiber attached storage         

Author: Greg Byrd
Date: Jan 12, 2007 07:45


Since there isn't a list on the S390 architecture, it seems this list is the closest to what I'm looking for. In a nutshell, I'm looking for software that supports S390 architecture and wiping fiber attached storage to DOD standards. The S390 software we have only wipes mainframe storage, not fiber attached storage.

I've used shred with great results, but it does have the caution on journaled file systems (we're using reiser and ext3). Let me know if there are suggestions.

Thanks in advance,

I believe this is normal in udev. I don't know what it is used for. It is
a virtual filesystem, they are created when needed (boot).

Lock files are used by some applications when opening files.

Author: Roman Pindela
Date: Dec 29, 2006 00:42

Hello, there !

I just need any kind of help with mentioned loop-AES's way of encrypting data.
It happend that I encrypted ..luckily ?, I don't know .. my super confidential
data... but I'm not able now to read it. .... I mean I can't setup encrypted
loop device on my files. That's what I get :
linux-ej56:/mnt/media/music # losetup \
-e aes-256 /dev/loop1 /mnt/media/music/

<< and the answer is .. >>

ioctl: LOOP_SET_STATUS: Invalid argument, requested cipher or key length (256
bits) not supported by kernel
linux-ej56:/mnt/media/music #


Password is correct, loop1 is unused, algorithm name is ok as well what
maybe wrong... ?

  [opensuse-security] snort in SLES9 and SLES10         

Author: shashi
Date: Dec 24, 2006 03:01

In SLES9 SP3, and in SLES10

SuSE:/usr/share/doc/packages/snort # pwd

SuSE:/usr/share/doc/packages/snort # du -h *.bz2
4.0K ACID-0.9.6b21.tar.bz2
4.0K Guardian.tar.bz2
4.0K Net-SnortLog-0.1.tar.bz2
4.0K Spade-092200.1.tar.bz2
4.0K passiveOS.tar.bz2
4.0K snortdb-extra.bz2
4.0K snortnet.tar.bz2
4.0K snortwatch-0.7.tar.bz2
SuSE:/usr/share/doc/packages/snort #

Why Novell/SuSE is giving empty files of snort add-ons ? When i first saw, i thought Novell is
giving tested versions of snort add-ons which perfectly works with bundled snort version. But, when
i try to configure ACID in SLES9 SP3, i discovered that it is a empty file. Then i immediately look
into SLES10, and in SLES10 too those files are empty files.

Is it a mistake from Novell/SuSE side ? or is there any reason/purpose ?
