  1. Tumbleweed, kernels and UEFI

    I am running opensuse Tumbleweed on my UEFI box. Yesterday, there was a kernel update. After the update, the box had several kernels:
    • 3.7.10-1.1-1 ## from installing 12.3
    • 3.8.8-3.1 ## from a Tumbleweed update
    • 3.8.9-5.1 ## also a TW update

  3. Dual boot opensuse 12.3 and Windows 8 on a UEFI box

    If you search around the Internet, you may find many reports of problems with dual booting Windows and linux in a UEFI environment. There are a number of pitfalls, and I have stumbled over several of those.

    The aim of this post is to explain how to do it and avoid the pitfalls. This is based on my own experience, with the UEFI BIOS for a Dell Inspiron 660 (BIOS version A05). Other UEFI systems may behave differently, though the suggestions that I give should work with most of them. ...

  4. How To Use VNC/Remmina to Remote Control an openSUSE 12.3 KDE Desktop

    by , 23-Mar-2013 at 06:56 (James' openSUSE Bash Scripting (and other things) Blog - Your Comments are Welcome!)
    So I am no expert on desktop remote control, but I just used VNC/Krfb to remote an openSUSE 12.3 KDE desktop to an openSUSE 12.2 PC running VNC/Remmina and it worked just fine. This came from a message post I had made in the forum, but I thought it was worth sharing here in a blog post.

    On the openSUSE 12.3 I did three things:

    1) Enabled Services in Firewall for VNC:
