So I recently built a new desktop, and I’m having a bunch of problems with openSUSE. The audio isn’t working, the graphics are wonky when I log back in from sleep, I can’t install certain software (VMware Workstation), and my wifi card won’t work. Is it possible that installing without an internet connection caused some issues? Would it be easier to install Windows first to get the drivers for the new hardware?
A few notes, it seems like there are no drivers for my new wifi adapter, but I do have a USB adapter that works now, so I can get on the internet with the desktop. I guess I’m asking if I made a mistake not installing with an internet connection because of these driver problems and the new hardware. Would it help to reinstall with an ethernet connection or are these just usual Linux and new hardware issues?
