  1. openSUSE-12.1 on Lenovo X220 laptop

    by , 28-Dec-2011 at 03:04 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I installed openSUSE-12.1 on my wife's Lenovo X220 laptop. Overall, the installation went well.

    I had previously blogged about the selection of this laptop to attempt to ensure GNU/Linux compatibility.

    The same blog entry described my wife's procurement of this laptop (with her a Thai native speaker and me a native English speaker, both of us being Expatriates living in Germany), and I blogged about the tests I had conducted with the openSUSE-12.1 release candidate

  2. Installing Windows7 after openSUSE-11.4

    by , 11-Dec-2011 at 05:32 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    My wife installed Windows7 on a PC with openSUSE-11.4 already installed, managing to keep both openSUSE-11.4 and WinXP. This blog discusses what we did as part of this installation.

    First, some detail on the hard drive content on my wife's PC ... it has two hard drives: one is a SATA drive and the second is an IDE drive. My wife already had on that PC:
    • Windows7 home trial version on 1st partition of SATA drive [where trial has expired so this is not used]
    • openSUSE-11.4

  3. openSUSE-12.1 to openSUSE Leap-15.1 with gImageReader and Tesseract

    by , 27-Nov-2011 at 07:42 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    On openSUSE-12.1 for scanning and OCR I have installed Tesseract-ocr and gImageReader . I like the capability to be able to conduct OCR of French, German and English languages, especially since I am an expatriate living abroad.

    I blogged about this before with openSUSE-11.4, and posted about it wrt openSUSE-11.3 and 11.4 in these threads

  4. Experiences - Asus Transformer Tablet with openSUSE

    by , 20-Nov-2011 at 02:01 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I successfully connected my Asus Transformer Tablet PC via a USB connection to my 64-bit openSUSE-11.4 PC (running KDE-4.6.0) to copy files to/from. The Asus Transformer is running Android 3.2.1 and my openSUSE-11.4 is running KDE-4.6.0.

    To interface the Transformer to my desktop PC, I used the USB/power cable that comes with the Transformer, which is a cable that plugs into the Transformer's Tablet section ...

  5. OpenSUSE-12.1 installation nvidia workarounds

    by , 17-Nov-2011 at 15:32 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    32-bit OpenSUSE-12.1 graphic install failed and required a simple workaround (with a legacy nVidia FX-5200 graphic card). This 12.1 install, was on my 10+ year old sandbox PC (whose first SuSE was SuSE-Pro-7.3 those 10 years ago). This PC, upgraded over the years, has 2GB RAM and an AGP FX5200 nVidia graphic card, which the nouveau driver does not particularly like.

    1/2 way through the openSUSE-12.1 installation, immediately after all software and the boot manager was installed, ...
