  2. OpenSUSE-12.3, 13.1, and 13.2 on Toshiba Satellite Z930 Ultrabook

    by , 20-Jul-2013 at 05:53 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I successfully installed openSUSE-12.3 on a Toshiba Satellite Z930 Ultrabook (with KDE-4.10 desktop). I have this running now for over 1-month, and I have to say I am very pleased thus far with both the Ultrabook and with openSUSE-12.3 running on it.

    More can be read on this Ultrabook running under GNU/Linux in this Linlap Toshiba Z930 thread for the Portege which is almost identical to my Toshiba:

  3. 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

    by , 28-Apr-2013 at 18:40 (James' openSUSE Bash Scripting (and other things) Blog - Your Comments are Welcome!)

    SysdCmd is a bash script intended to be used in openSUSE and tested with openSUSE version 12.3. I have included all of the features I feel openSUSE users will likely want in a bash script intended to help you learn how to use and work with systemd. SysdCmd will install the following standard openSUSE packages: systemd-ui, systemd-analyze and graphviz all of which will require root user access. The ...

  5. 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. ...
