OpenSuse 10.2 with Sun w1100z
A typical issue with OpenSuse 10.2 on Sun w1100z is you can't use your USB keyboard and mouse after upgrading linux-kernel.
Add "acpi=off" to your boot option can solve it.
If you want to use nvidia driver instead open source nv. Try NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184.
Another thing is if you want to use Firefox accessibility feature, you need to export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/gnome/lib or /opt/gnome/lib/gtk-2.0/modules
I've no idea why OpenSuse don't install gnome to /usr
Install Ubuntu 7.04 on Parallels Desktop
There's a discuss about Ubuntu 7.04 Live CD won't start in Parallels Desktop.
The simple workaround works for me.
Create a Guest OS with type Solaris, and change it to Linux after installation.
Another issue I have with Ubuntu 7.04 and PD is it can't shutdown gracefully.
I'm not a great Ubuntu fun now, I can live with it.
Maybe I should try VMWare Fusion. Hmm...
