    The HP 625 laptop only arrived Tuesday morning (48 hours ago).

    By default the machine set up with GDM and Gnome. I used Yast to
    install KDM and KDE 4.2 from Novell and deleted much of Gnome. With
    updates the total download
    was 3.2 GBs. On each update to a new install of a KDE package a warning
    was given that the software was not covered or a new license required.
    (Looks as
    though I invalidated the license as soon a Yast was entered although
    updating from Novell repos.)

    Dolphin and Konqueror have no problems reading DVD's and Audio CDs.

    To get Kaffeine to work, I added updates from Packman for openSUSE
    11.1, libdvdcss from VLC manually and xine-lib 1.1.19 from xine-project
    manually.
    For Automounting I used the info from jdmcdaniel3's thread 'Multimedia
    Optical Drive Naming (ie /dev/dvd & /dev/cdrom) Howto in opneSUSE' on
    this forum.

    Hi
    SLED 11 is on pcc-services, however if/when you upgrade to SP1 then
    packman have a SLED 11 SP1 repository.

    That's good news for SLED users and makes the addition of multimedia support a lot easier.
