OK, I'm used to Ubuntu, but the latest version won't install on my computer because of some problem with the CD-ROM driver...
So, over to OpenSUSE KDE. Very pretty, but...
I need Truecrypt and GRASS GIS - now, I've had both these working in Ubuntu no problem, but I'm now about to throw my computer out of the window!!
TrueCrypt - Free opensource on the fly Disk Encryption tool | SUSE & openSUSE
... so far as I can tell, these instructions must be incorrect. It just won't install the package.
GRASS GIS - none of the RPMs will install due to dependency issues - and there are no instructions anywhere as to how to resolve them.
Microsoft will continue to rule the roost until LINUX developers find a simple and convenient way to install applications. I know that's a standard noob complaint, but installing applications should not be difficult. I'm not new to LINUX and certainly not new to computers, but this is just a pain in the a*s! If I struggle to do it, the average user will have no chance whatsoever.
Any suggestions? Anyone know how to make either of these applications work in OpenSUSE 11??
