I brought a linux magazine from a newagent with opensuse on cd
and I could not try it the cds did not work so now I use mepis
@jeno1: and what is the exact message you are trying to pass here?
Opensuse 10.1 was a hassle to get configured for me, especially considering that the YAST package manager was broken from the start (it’s fixed now, but smart is a nicer and less sluggish alternative). However, once configured I most certainly fell in love with it and dumped Windows off my other partition. I just like the professional feel of opensuse, especially in the GNOME environment. Sure it’s not the fastest distro if you want the top experience on some hardware (xgl, beagle), but it really is wonderfully polished and robust. I also more personally like green than brown …not that it’s an allusion to anything.
Opensuse 10.1 is I think geared to the beginner. Setup is easy. Installing nvidia drivers is a snap,not like other distros I’ve tryed. Yast makes configuration a breeze. In my opinion in trying many distros Opensuse works for me.
I’m using the 10.2 distro on an AMD dual core and am very satisfied so far: I’m able to do almost everything I was doing on WinXP minus the instability. I think that I will reformat my NTFS partition in the near future.
OpenSuse 10.2 so far is the best OS I ever used. I’m using a laptop the only thing I had to do manualy was the instalation of ATI’s driver. I ‘ve tried Mandrave, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and many others. Suse 10.2 is the best on configuring wireless, network and so on…YasT is realy good on it.
I started seriously with Linux using OpenSUSE 10.1 and am now using 10.2 (a big improvement). Ifind it to be my favourite operating system by far. I still dual boot with XP but its been quite a while since I had to visit Microland. Yast is much improved and I have no problems setting everything as I like and need it. It is true that Linux is a bit of a learning curve (but so is Windows if you are new to it) but OpenSUSE takes a lot of the frustration out of the experience. Perhaps it is geared to relative beginners but if we want Linux to succeed and be better adopted is that not just what is needed?
May I know how you install wireless broadcomm in openSuse 10.2? I left only this problem to full experience
Will really seriously dump the Monosoft xp
I am openSUSE user who tried Ubuntu, Fedora and all distributions (well, still trying them on my virtual machine). People who need to use certain WINDOWS applications can try running Windows XP in a virtual machine under linux instead of dual booting all time. You can network your XP virtual machine and Host Linux box so that you can transfer files to and from.
The advantage, You don’t have to have windows partition, you can allocate everything to Linux. Your Windows Box is reasonably better secured and you can improve it further by doing the browsing things on Linux and use Windows just for work. Next, as time goes by you will start adapting linux in a full scale approach.
Disadvatage: certain games won’t run in Virtualized Windows XP (well, those are advanced games), It will slow down everything unless you have at least 2G RAM with latest Laptop/PC with at least 1G allocated to your virtual XP, to be realistic.
I am visual studio (C#.NET, ASP.NET) developer at work and some times I have to bring my works home and so I do my work in my Virtual XP inside Linux.

My first shot at Suse didn’t work. I thought that I could try it with Live CD like Ubuntu or PCLinuxOS but apparently Suse doesn’t let you do that so I went ahead with the installation. It got it installed to a point where it asked me for CD2? I didn’t know there was supposed to be a second CD. My download didn’t ask for another CD. I’ll have to check on this.
I checked to see what I did wrong and found out. My fault. I need 6 CD’s! I have dial-up so I asked my neighbor to download it as he has cable internet. But even with cable it took him over an hour to download the 1st CD so I can’t impose on him to do 5 more. So thanks anyway Suse I’ll give another distro a try.
It is difficult on WLAN.
But it is a fine OS.
I have recently downloaded openSUSE and installed on a system and it took hardly 15 minutes on a latest hardware dualcore 1.8mhz with 1gb Ram. and it is very intelligent and never asked anything except root and user names and passwords. its so cool look and feel i love it. Congratulations to the community.
here is another good suse linux tutorial website http://www.susegeek.com very useful
Thank you. Link added.
Recently installed OpenSuSe 11.4, and it works like a charm. I mainly installed it just to see how the project was progressing as I’m usually a Debian, and Slackware user. OpenSuSE is a solid distro, and from what I can see from my experience with 11.4 is OpenSuSE could be a great place for someone to start who is just getting into Linux. The install was straight forward, and everything was detected “out of the box.” Flawless install, and everything detected as far as I can tell on my Toshiba R700. I doubt I’ll switch to it as my Linux distro of choice as it doesn’t really offer anything that Debian, or Slackware (other than package management… viewed as a good thing when it comes to Slackware… Debian has package management) doesn’t already offer, but I would recommend 11.4 for anyone looking for a generally easy Linux system to get started with. OpenSuSE is probably one of the most polished out of the box Linux distros I’ve come into contact with.
