== Linux (not) running applications ==
+
 
+
Can anyone think of things that do run an operating system that will definitely '''not''' run on Linux?
+
 
+
I have seen cell phones, PDAs, and even parking meters that run some version of embedded Linux.
+
 
+
Bill Gates' house will probably never run Linux.
+
 
+
Linux uses the Intel 80386 chip's protected mode-functions extensively, and is a true 32-bit operating system. CPUs before the 80386 will not run post-2.4 Linux kernels as these CPUs lack protected modes.

== Using YaST for installing non-SuSE packaged software ==
+
 
+
I'm curious on the best method for using YaST / update software for installing RPM's which are not part of the standard SuSE set of SLES packages.
+
 
+
For example,
+
  subversion
+
  apache2
+
  php5
+
 
+
For now, I've been downloading various RPMs [1] into a given special directory (i.e. /disks) .  Then pointing update sources to that directory, and ignoring the error which comes up.
+
 
+
It seems to work ok, but wondering if there's a better way of doing this... like putting the direct FTP site in YaST (error's out for me).
+
 
+
Also, periodically, YaST Software update crashes on me, given certain RPM packages. Completely reproducable, who should I report it to?
+

+
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated...
+
Thanks,
