    Default How to install a package?


    Hi,

    I am new to linux but love to explore it. I just installed openSuse
    11.1 on my new desktop which already has Windows XP on it. I would like
    to install a package called NetworkManger. Can anyone please tell me how
    to get it and how to install it? I need to set up my wireless connection
    on this machine. So, I can't access internet from this machine when
    logged on using linux OS. When I tried /usr/sbin/iwlist scan, I do not
    see my wirelesss SSID in the list. I do not know why, but windows can
    see it. I tried configuring with iwconfig, but did not work.

    Can anyone help on this? I am using KDE desktop.

    Thanks
    -Bheem

    Hiya,

    Well one way to do it is start up YaST (either by clicking on the yast
    icon or typing yast2 as root at a command line). Then click on 'Network
    Devices', then 'Network Settings'. On the 'Global Options' tab of the
    module that opens up you should be able to change the 'Network Setup
    Method' to 'User Controlled with NetworkManager'.

    When you click 'OK' in that module it should ask you if it can install
    the NetworkManager packag(es).
