After Install minor queries

I was able to install opensuse 11.2 wihtout problems from LiveCD:).
After installation I noticed there is a cross in Network Connection. But in Live CD it’s not there. I opended Network Manager and setp up my DSL Pppoe connecton and it’s working. Hope this behaviour is normal ?

I am little confused regarding software update. In Yast control centre:

  1. Software repositories I will not have to touch default is ok ?
  2. Just select Online Update and all the updates will be taken care
  3. Is there any settings to avoid unnecessary software downloads


If you want multi-media
follow this carefully!

You will end up with the default 3 repos: oss, non-oss, update

  • Packman

That’s it unless you need an ati or nvidia driver
