    .
    This blog entry describes some of my early openSUSE-13.1 experiences with a Foscam FI9831W IP-Camera using openSUSE-13.1. First let me say this IP-Camera works well with my Android device (and WinXP under Virtual Box), albeit I don't yet have full native openSUSE GNU/Linux functionality.

    One thing to note in general about most (all ?? ) IP-Camera(s), is they have in fact computers embedded inside, which run the GNU/Linux operating system, where that GNU/Linux is not observable ...

  2. liveKDE 64-bit openSUSE-13.1 on USB-3.0 memory stick

    by , 07-Mar-2014 at 13:32 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    The liveKDE 64-bit openSUSE-13.1 works well on a USB-3.0 memory stick with my Toshiba Z930 Ultrabook's USB-3.0 port. In particular this is a 16 GB Sandisk Extreme USB Flash Drive and I have to say I am quite impressed with it.

    I installed the 64-bit .iso file for openSUSE-13.1 on the memory stick, using the application Image Writer, per the instructions ...

  3. DKMS + NVIDIA on openSUSE

    NOTE: This will only work if all other NVIDIA installs have been removed
    NOTE: This was made up for the 331.20 driver. The package will update to newer versions of the driver, currently 331.38
    The package is in fact no more than a spec file, that
    • pulls in the appropriate NVIDIA.....run from NVIDIA's ftp site. If a 32bit openSUSE is installed then NVIDIA-x86-331.20.run will be downloaded, in case of a 64bit openSUSE the NVIDIA-x86_64-331.20.run.
    • runs the installer in a non-gui

  4. Skype-4.0/4.2 on openSUSE-13.1

    by , 19-Nov-2013 at 15:46 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    Skype may have no sound or corrupted sound for some users on openSUSE-13.1 and this blog re-iterates what has been posted elsewhere in different places.

    The method I use for installing skype is per the openSUSE wiki (where at the time of writing this blog entry it had advice labeled for openSUSE-12.3 that nominally should work for openSUSE-13.1).

    I had no sound from skype-4.2.0.11 on my Toshiba Satellite Z930 Ultrabook after my openSUSE-13.1 GM installation.

    Be aware that you need to follow and understand how to direct all openSUSE installation actions to the external hard drive. Failure to follow all instructions may cause modifications to your internal hard drive, defeating the purpose of this written procedure and modifying your main OS installation.

    Please read through this procedure more than once to insure full understanding before trying this on your PC.
