Ok guys so im very slowly migrating across from Windows to OpenSuse. However i have a few quarms about the system and how it works.
Add / Remove programs
Is there a way to see a list of software that you have installed and is it quite easy to “un-install” it? I have installed Compiz and then when i went to remove it i could see 10ish items called Compiz. I was confused about how to uninstall it all from my system successfully without getting rid of something i need.
I have tried to install packages from the OpenSuse site and I’m not sure what has happened to it. I have installed Virtual box from here and nothing has happened. I cannot search or even see Virtualbox anywhere. What im wanting to do is run OpenSuse as my Primary OS and then run Windows 7 on VB so i can continue to work as normal under it.
OpenSuse in a Microsoft domain
Is this possible? At work we use a Microsoft domain but is there a way i can install the Admin tools for OpenSuse so i can continue to work as normal by for example using Active Directory etc etc.
In Windows you have the “Device manager” a very handy tool that tells you what is on your computer, what drivers are missing and need installing etc. I can’t see anything like this in Suse. Im not sure if all my hardware is installed once i am in Suse like Graphics cards, sound card, network card, card reader, and anything else that is on my PC etc.
Can someone give me a good description on how OpenSuse partitions your hard drive. I have seen it gives you a “swap?” drive etc but unsure as to what this is. Please can you help.
Im sorry about my “newbie” questions and queries but im sure once i get these items sorted out i will be able to use Suse alot better.
I thank you in advance.
