    I have updated mmcheck to version 2.45 for use with openSUSE 12.1 & 12.2, added in checks for the all new mplayer files and for the changes made in Packman.



    Before using mmcheck, always consult the following thread for the proper way to setup your multimedia in openSUSE.

  2. Some interesting Tablets as of end-May-2011

    by , 04-Jun-2011 at 14:33 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I took a small look on the Internet at some tablet PCs that were released in the past few months, and the tablet market is starting to get interesting.

    Dispelled preconceptions and some assumptions

    The first thing I had to dump (for now) was the idea of running openSUSE on any of these Tablets. In truth, openSUSE (nor most other Linux distributions) are up to that task. I also noted none of these Tablets are yet at the stage where their OS (Android or Windows7) ...

  4. CyberPower UT1500E UPS for desktop computer running openSUSE LEAP

    by , 14-Oct-2019 at 07:45 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I recently purchased a UPS for my desktop computer which is currently running openSUSE LEAP-15.0.

    There is discussion on my deliberations prior to purchasing in this openSUSE thread.

    As noted in the title, the UPS I purchased is the CyberPower UT1500E 1500VA/900W, which I believe should be adequate for my 4-year old core-i7 desktop PC. My nominal plan, after there is a power outage, is to have my PC automatically shutdown within 1 minute of the power outage. ...

  5. Looking for mobile router (or mobile 3G compatible) router ...

    by , 07-Aug-2011 at 06:05 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I'm looking for views on portable/mobile 3G mobile routers (with built in battery) !

    My wife suggested we consider this for our travels, as this may be an interesting way to go (and we are both Internet fiends). The philosophy is one has a very small (deck of cards size) router that obtains the Internet signal via a 3G connection. It then turns around and rebroadcasts this signal via a short range wireless. One can then connect their laptop, or tablet to that wireless, and thus have ...
