    Default suseplugger in opensuse11?

    Hello all. I'm quite new to linux and am getting my feet wet with numerous distros, including OpenSuse 11.

    I've read some about a Windows Device Manager equivalent in OpenSuse called "suseplugger". Is this availabed in version 11.0? I can't seem to find it and launch it. I'm running KDE 3.5.

    Thanks!

    I don't think suseplugger still exist. KDE4 has something like it, but you're running 3.5. What exactly do you want it for? My Computer, on the Desktop should already show you a lot, and right-clicking items should give you a lot of options.

    welcome..

    you say version "11." is it 11.0 or 11.1, not that it really matters
    for your question, but i'm wondering if it is actually "SUSE 11" also
    known correctly as "SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop" (SLED) or "SUSE
    Linux Enterprise Server" (SLES)..

    and, i ask because there is a difference between SLED/SLES 11 and
    openSUSE 11.0 and 11.1

    oh..i now see it is 11.0

    http://software.opensuse.org/search shows zero hits on "suseplugger"
    for SLED/SLES 11 or openSUSE 11.0

    and, google's most recent hit on that string is _over_ three years
    old....i therefore suppose that it is no longer available...(or more
    likely has been "rolled in")

    *however* if you could describe the functionality you seek maybe
    someone here could lead you to it..

    that is, i've never seen a "a Windows Device Manager" and therefore
    have no idea what one might do..

    how and what does it "manage"?

    like, does it throttle the CPU according to the speed demanded? does
    it increase/decrease the GPU fan speed? what?

    does it "manage" which device drivers are being used?

    maybe it doesn't "manage" anything, maybe it just lists what devices
    are available and their characteristics..

    i reckon openSUSE has all sorts of "device management"...for sure, all
    of those i mentioned are covered in the most install options...if not
    i guess if we know you want we can help you locate it..

    again, welcome.
