Here is my first post, quite excited
First tried Linux (Suse 8.0) in 2002 or something. Network card didnt work on my PC, so never used it.
(Tried to learn some C++ back then, didnt go that well).
Then after few years (of hardcore gaming also) discovered Ubuntu. Used for 5 years (on a Desktop, also one server(FOG server)). Once took a look at Debian.
Then learned some Linux servers on CentOS. Used Fedora for 5 years. (On a Workstation, also one CentOS server(OCS inventory)).
Never expected to take a look at Suse. Had some wrong impression of it not being so well maybe because of that old experience.
Now, took a look at OpenSuse. Because Fedora(and Ubuntu somewhat) were not fitting my demand of a stable Workstation anymore.
And guess what, im kind of really surprised. Because i like it very much right now. Ofc i have to evaluate it for a few more month/years. To get a bigger picture. But for now im really liking it.
Now i am trying to install WebYast, via one click install. And it complains about not being able to access Ports repo.
Whats wrong? aka What do i do?
Thanks in advance,
Hi Nikolai, welcome back to OpenSuse. I can’t answer your specific question but but I am sure expert responders soon will.
Meantime I have two suggestions: 1) best to include basic system details when you submit a support request post here (release version, kernel, DE and version, graphics card, etc.) and; 2) if you have your system up an running why not install the webyast pattern from standard repos with Yast2 (Yast2 > Software > View Patterns > WebYaST) or zypper. I am no great fan of the ‘one-click’ install - so good to know what’s going on.
Thanks for the fast, not so expert, response It was good enough, you know Helped me to install WebYast
Why One Click, i dont know, just discovering stuff hehe.
I see, what people were speaking about on internet, when they were saying that OpenSuse does things its own way. But i dont mind. I even like it. I enjoy discovering new things. Im stalling file/web/server/laptop/remote desktop/.net development right now from the patterns.
So i suppose that is the preferred way? Fine. Learned good new thing today.
p.s. Just posted on my Blog something about Linux and Green colors.
Glad that helped. Like you, I installed SuSE a decade ago - it worked for me and has run my working desktop system ever since. I recommend you read this forum (I find the RSS feed useful to keep an eye on things), there is much wisdom here. For general Chit-Chat and matters other than support have a look at ‘the other forum’.
