After getting the Eee PC installed with openSUSE using the USB installation method (http://en.opensuse.org/SuSE_install_from_USB_drive), I’m now trying to use the Eee PC as what a ‘normal’ user would (versus a power user/developer). What I’ve found out in the short period of usage is that the application Inkscape, a vector drawing program, does not work quite well out of the box.
If you are using Linux and are facing problem with Java applets running correctly on Firefox, AND you have googled to the ends of the earth but still can’t solve the problem, check this post out. The solution in my scenario is remarkably simple.
Sorry, the search is disabled! Come back later
Someone in the mailing list suggested that a workaround is to use Google’s site specific search function. In the search box, prefix the search terms with the term:
For example, if I want to search for “usb boot support”, I will type the following in the search box.
site:lists.opensuse.org usb boot support
Granted, it’s not perfect, but it’s a temporary workaround. shrug

Preamble: This is a post on documenting the steps that I took to deploy a 2-node fail-over cluster for a client. No identifying information specific to the client is contained in this post. The deployment was done in August 2007 and I’m only posting it in December, nearly four months since the date I said I would put it online. Well, now that Open Enterprise Server (OES) 2 is already available, this post might not be that useful to others. Nevertheless, perhaps this will help someone somewhere out there ;-)
