this is boerzel writing, beeing completely new to Linux. Since a half year now I am reading (and do my best to understand) a lot about Linux, because I want to change from Windows to Linux, but will do it prepared. Have about 10 years expirience with Windows (2000, XP, Vista Business) and build my PCs by my own.
I have the usual question for my hardware: does it run with Opensuse 11.1 64-bit, or should I better take 32-bit? I would prefer 64-bit to be able use my complete ram.
My “homebrewed” system is:
- AMD AthlonX2 6000+ CPU
- 4 GB of RAM
- Asrock AliveDual-eSATA2 Mainboard
- Geforce 7300GT AGP-Graphicscard
- 2x 250GB IDE harddisks,
- 1x DVD-ROM from Samsung IDE
- 1x DVD-Burner from Samsung IDE
- 1x TV-card Hauppauge WinTV PVR 150 with Radio tuner
- 1x Epson-USB-Scanner Perfection V200 Photo
- 1x Canon Pixma-inkprinter USB
This systems runs very well with Win Vista, and it would be nice, if this configuration would run with opensuse 11.1 also fine too.
Specially I would like to know, if the scanner could be run with 64-Bit opensuse 11.1.
Also I really need to know, if the television-card runs with 64-Bit opensuse 11.1 and wich software is available for watching TV, recording TV and listening radio with this television card. I know about the ivtv-drivers, but I would like to have some expierienced answer about the software.
Last, but not least, I need to know, wich software is availbale to edit videos - those, wich I had recorded with the TV-card and then some family videos, taken with a digicam. I know avidemux from Windows, but, for example, I need a software, with wich I can cut out the advertising from the tv-recorded movies.
Sorry for my bad English.
Thanks in advance for all suggestions,
have a Happy New Year 2009,
