Thread: openSUSE 11.2

  1. #1

    Default openSUSE 11.2

    Hey everybody over here,

    I am new to openSUSE, and I like it so far! KDE is really beatiful!

    But jeah, that's my opinion. Let's have it about my question.


    I did a few hours a go a fresh install of opensuse 11.2.
    With Ubuntu I had to do some things after the instalation, such as configuring the multimedia etc. Do I need to do that with openSUSE to? Is there a "Do this direct after install" Howto?

    Hiya,

    Not sure what you're after but there are a couple things I do directly after
    install. Specifically, I'll set up an update repository
    (Yast-->Software-->Online Update Configuration). Then I'll set up the
    packman repo (Yast-->Software-->Software Repositories-->Add-->Community
    Repositories-->Packman) for things like mp3 playback and other things that
    they aren't able to include in the release for whatever reasons. Then if
    I'm on a machine that would benefit from a proprietary video driver I'll
    add either the NVidia or ATI repo and install the appropriate packages (for
    nvidea see (http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA) for ATI see
    (http://en.opensuse.org/Ati).

    Other than that it's really up to you.

    "As an alternative, encode your audio files in Ogg..." Good idea anyone

    I have still got a few questions:

    1. I want to change my login screen, but when I change it, and reboot, it's still the normal one.

    2. I am working on a Dell Latitude D800, witch uses "FN" keys. How do I configure them? When I press "Fn+F10" (witch is "open cd tray") Happens there nothing.

    For your first question I cannot answer as I dont know your DE yet, as for your second well sadly I have not seen a case where laptop function keys really work with Linux.
    I can personally deal without em but it does stink a little not being able to use them, not linux's fault of course though.

    Taralkeda, you must have been very unlucky. 11.2 uses all of the FN keys on my Eeepc 900, and those I've tried so far on my Toshiba Satellite Pro (screen brightness, volume etc), although the latter required some adjustment in the grub menu.lst boot options (acpi_osi=Linux).
