    Default Playing AVI, DVD, Media

    Hi all,
    I am brand new to OpenSuse as of my first installation the day before yesterday. It has really been amazing. I have been a windows user for years and never thought of trying anything else until I had to do some work on some broken PCs I had sitting around and after I got them up and running Microsoft said I needed new Licenses for all of them! After spending a few hours on the phone I thought I will give Linux a try. I love it. I did have some problems getting a DVD to play but I just kept finding packages and installing them and now everything works. My question is Are there any logs that show what I installed and when I installed it. With that information maybe I could add to the Wiki about how I got mine working.
    Thanks
    Nordite

    If you installed things normally they are all in the RPM database....
    query it with -q and add an 'a' to query for everything. Pipe the
    output to 'less' so you don't get tons of data written to your screen
    and lost before you can review it:

    rpm -qa | less

    Hit 'q' when you're ready to exist 'less'.

    You can also go into 'yast' or 'yast2' and then to Software: Software
    Management and browse things graphically and with a nice interface for you.

    Good luck.

    rpm --query --all --last
    Further to Andreas Stieger's advice, ... if you find the list scrolls by too fast, you can redirect the output to a text file, and then open the text file with a text editor ... for example:
    rpm -qa --last > installed-rpms.txt
    and then open "installed-rpms.txt" with a text editor.
