Just installed openSUSE Leap 15.1

I have only just finished installing openSUSE Leap 15.1 and was really surprised how easy it was.
The only part of the installation i was wary of was Network Settings. So i skipped that part and
continued with the rest of the install. When the installation was finished i rebooted the machine
and all i had to do was select my ISP enter my password and i was online! Hooray lol.

First thing i did was to open a terminal and type

$ sudo zypper refresh && sudo zypper update

It took awhile but now everything is up to date i hope

Still have loads to learn but this old guy is here to stay!

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated

Thanks all

Welcome to the openSUSE forums.

As you have no questions at the moment, I have no answers :wink:

Enjoy and come back when you run into problems or have any questions.

Hi, welcome in the openSUSE community, !!!

Enjoy !!!

My slide deck describes not just the installation but some recommended first steps exploring



Tony, this is an excellent introduction. I wish I’d read this when I was starting with openSUSE. Thanks for your efforts.

I only began with openSUSE Leap 15.1 yesterday when i installed and got the OS online.
So, it will be evident to forums members just how much an openSUSE noob i really am.

There is so much more for me to learn such as YaST, and zypper etc.

I would like to install the VLC Media Player although i would have to also install the packman repositories in order to do so?
I haven’t as yet installed multimedia codecs and whatever else i would need to listen to my music cd’s/dvd’s or even to
watch dvd films. So if there’s anyone out there who’s willing to point me towards tutorials that cover the above mentioned
i would really appreciated it.

Thanks all mancave

For multimedia it is simple. Just head for the Multi-media sub-forum here in the forums and read the top sticky that applies to your version of openSUSE. Tha should be clear enoigh. When not, ask ther by starting a thread in that sub-forum.

Thanks hcvv
I’m getting there slowly lol
