Getting GroupWise 8 client to work on openSUSE 11.1

December 10th, 2008 by

Since openSUSE 11.1 has gone gold and GroupWise 8 has been around for a while, I decided to install openSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.1 on my laptop. I use GroupWise and when I tried to install the GroupWise rpm’s, it complained about missing dependancies. I had to install the following software in order for GroupWise 8 to work:

openmotif, openmotif22-libs and libstdc++33

Once that was installed the GroupWise rpm’s installed without any problems

Setting up a simple router

December 10th, 2008 by

Today I spent the best part of the morning to configure a SLES 10 SP2 server as a simple router. I googled quite a lot and could not find a nice and concise post on how to configure SLES 10 as a simple router, so I thought I’ll write up my experiences in the hopes that it will help someone. Although this was done on SLES 10 I am pretty sure it will apply to openSUSE as well.

My setup is as follows: Local lan is and I want a private lan on so that I can run stuff like DHCP and PXE without upsetting everyone on the network. I have a SLES 10 server with 2 network cards: eth1 connected to the local lan and eth0 connected to my private switch. The local lan is connected via ADSL to the Internet and I need my private network to also be able to connect to the Internet.
