Thread: Questions on opensuse 11.2

    Default Questions on opensuse 11.2

    Hi everyone!
    I am new to OpenSuse.
    I have tried OpenSuse 11.2 Milestone 7 with kde and gnome. Both run good but I have some troubles.
    So, kde version do not read my audio cds. I have tried to listen my cd with kaffeine but I hear only a noise. then I have tried to navigate into my audio cd with dolphin but it show me this error message: "I can not read".
    With gnome, instead, everything run normally, but however, I can not navigate in my cd with Nautilus.
    This is strange for me. I use Ubuntu with gnome, and when I insert into my pc an audio cd, it show me an icon on desktop. Then I can navigate in to my cd with nautilus.
    So, I have a problem also with nepomuk.
    When I tried to use it, it crash suddenly.
    I have a question: why the slab men in gnome version do not have a suse logo, but have only a little computer image?

    Sorry for my english

    All I can say is, if you are new to openSUSE than use the stable 11.1 and not the develop/testing version.. Milestone releases are snapshots of the factory distribution..

    Do NOT USE 11.2 at this time on a production system, wait till it is released.. If not, it will probably eat your hamster..

    Thank you!!

    I suppose you speak from personal experience?
    as a matter of fact, I am using factory.. and yeah I made my experience, my hamster is still alive but it was close
    But I am not new to Linux or openSUSE so I can handle and solve most of the pain..

    But naturally Milestone's are nothing to start with when being completely new to a distro..

    even though I just came back to openSUSE as my main system, after a few years of using an other Distribution.. so I am happy to be back.. openSUSE 11.2 will finally reach what I was waiting for since 10.0, and 11.2 will be a fantastic release..


    Cheers...

    Most openSUSE users use KDE, but SUSE's gnome is also very well done.

    I haven't tried XFCE on SUSE.

    If you have the DVD, you'll have the choice of all of them...

    If you are downloading a LiveCD, you have to pick - but you can add another desktop afterwards, and choose between them when you log in.

    It's very subjective which you should go for. Gnome is a little more like Mac in a way - it's quite simple and minimalistic. KDE is very configurable, and a little bit more like Windows perhaps. XFCE is lightweight, and can be made to run *very* efficiently if you're careful how you configure it.

    I have got live cd of opensuse 11.1 with gnome and one with kde. but both do not run....
    How can I solve?

    When I said:
    You which of this advise for me?
    is it not correct?
    Maybe I must say:
    Which of this do you advise for me?
    Thank you

    How did you burn the downloaded images? As a file on a data-disk? That's wrong. You should burn the image to disk; that way the content of the downloaded images would be burnt to disk, and make them bootable.
    Next, tell the BIOS from your machine to boot from CD/DVD. Should work.
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 30 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE 12.2 x86_64 + KDE 4.10 + GNOME 3
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Tumbleweed

    Anything that can go wrong.... will teach us

    There is a wiki here, with a list of the liveCDs available for openSUSE: Live CD - openSUSE

    For KDE I recommend KDE3: Carlos Gonçalves: Unofficial KDE 3.5 Live CD for openSUSE 11.1
    For Gnome you can go with the official release: Software.openSUSE.org

    Please note our stickie for installation: NEWBIES - Suse-11.1 Pre-installation PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums
