Thread: New Desktop PC

  1. #1

    Default New Desktop PC

    I have recently bought a new desktop pc and awaiting delivery of the machine this weekend? There is no operating system installed on the machine because the company novatech.co.uk would only install Windows so i decided to do without and install the operating system of my choice which is openSUSE Leap 42.3. I just hope that there will be no problems and that i will be able to access the Internet asap.

    Well, JUMP!

    Start the installer and see how far you get. When in doubt, ask here.

    Unfortunately... or maybe fortunately, you will very likely have an uneventful installation and things will just work.

    Maybe I missed it, but what was the video card or are you just using the built in Intel graphics for the time being?

    Personally, I think the openSUSE community is going to be the best out there to interact with; Friendly and super helpful. You'll like it here.
    If I am going to be spontaneous, I have to plan for it.
