Thread: I'm new to the openSUSE world

  1. #1

    Default I'm new to the openSUSE world

    Greetings to everyone on this forum. I'm new to the openSUSE world and I have a lot of beginner's questions, and the answers are in this forum are widespread in many topic , so I prayed that I get here in one place the answers to what interests me. Do not give me links to related topics because I read most of it and we still many things are not clear.

    1.So far I have been for years on ubuntu, and I had a period of 5 years of support for LTS versions and upgrade to the new version of Ubuntu could very easily make the update manager with two clicks. In opensuse see that the support for the official 18 months so I wonder why such a short period of time and whether it is a simple upgrade to the new version or should always clean install?

    2. On the second occasion I ubuntu start installation of the operating system could also click on the option to immediately install the multimedia codecs, and then after we install everything works well: mp3, flash, java, mpeg4, dvd ... I'm interested in who is the easy way in opensuse that we all multimedia works properly (and offline dvd mp3 online flash java misrosoft silverlight)?

    3.Are these your official website from which you can install programs without fear of openSUSE: a) http://software.opensuse.org/131/en b) http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php)

    4.I see that the firewall is immediately present, and I want the antivirus because some files on the network and letting them before I check before sending it to the server and web hosting. Which antivirus you recommend and how to properly install ?

    5. In a multi-function device have a scanner and a printer, scanner immediately recognized and installed a printer is not recognized automatically, but you have to manually install the HP F2200. Did I made ​​a mistake somewhere in the process?

    6. OpenSUSE I installed from scratch on a laptop, 1.75 GHz dual core, 8GB of RAM, the new machine, 64 bit, laptop has UEFI BIOS and secure boot, so I wonder whether openSUSE supports UEFI BIOS and the registration keys in secure boot, and that iso image to take off for installation on the laptop?

    7.Sorry for the long question and the bad English. I'm working on specific tasks, and can not afford to have problems with the operating system and I'm wasting my time on debugging why all this detail I ask before I decide to Ubuntu to a different operating system. Ubuntu works great, but is ignored desktop users and therefore thinking about alternatives. I'm sure I'll have more questions, but I believe you understand my caution and the need for a stable and secure operating system that is used for work.

    Sorry, no questions in this forum.

    Didn't you read the HUGE banner on top: "Please don't ask products
    questions here"? And the explanation on the side?

    This forum is for you to explain to us how to do things, not for asking
    us how to do things.

    So please request a moderator to move your post elsewhere. Use the
    report button below, the triangle.

    Notice that what happens when you write about different issues in the
    same post is that the thread will become confused. Responders may reply
    to just some of the questions, and the rest will become unseen.
    Typically it is best one thread per question.

    Yes, the official support is too short, I agree. Other people don't.
    However, there is a openSUSE project that gives LTS to selected releases
    for about 2 years more. Support is not given by staffers, but volunteers
    (with some help from some staffers), and it doesn't include extra repos
    (it is up to the maintainer of each repo to include Evergreen or not). I
    suggest not to upgrade KDE/Gnome, for instance, if you intend to use
    Evergreen - IMO.

    openSUSE:Evergreen

    13.1 is thus an LTS.


    About upgrading the system to the next release, it is not a single click
    operation, and this is intentional. You must do certain manual things
    for upgrading.

    If you go to the multimedia forum here you see a sticky post at the top.
    Just the very first post.

    Flash you install from the official non-oss repo, which you have active
    by default. Microsoft, forget it.

    Further questions in the Multimedi forum here, please.

    That's the official openSUSE site. I don't understand the thing about
    "fear of openSUSE".

    None.

    Please give a valid reason for wanting to run a (windoze) antivirus in
    *Linux*, and then I'll try to give further advice. :-)))

    (Yes, of course UEFI is supported, and secure mode is supported)

    I am guessing that 4scan means something along the lines of "safe for openSUSE" / "without risk to openSUSE."

    Yes, but what for? To protect what? The work case has to be defined,
    because just installing it does nothing. Then what, scan Linux itself?
    Pointless. Scan email? Scan samba shares? Those two are valid concerns
    (for Windows machines being served, not for Linux), but what is wanted
    needs to be specified in order to give advice on how to install/use the
    antivirus...

    Thank you to everyone who has responded to my questions. For term security for opensuse I thought if they are one-click site official and whether the installation of these sites may threaten the stability of the operating system. Also on the site ( http://software.opensuse.org/131/en , http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php ) do not see that it will install 32 or 64-bit version. I have a 64 bit system.
    .................................................................................................

    I do not know whether the default installed some sensors or I have to install something that I saw temperatures CPU, VGA, HDD ....

    ....................................................................................................


    Antivirus me having to check the file to be sent to the web host and the other pc which are windows based.
