however, unlike the first post in January, the following is not in the output:

Resolving package dependencies…
Nothing to do.
I have re-partitioned (or at least I thought) to use the whole hard disk so I can have an entirely fresh install of Opensuse. Does the above reflect otherwise i.e. some old files are not yet “partitioned” or “formatted”?
There should be a wireless device node (wlan0) present
If that checks out as expected you can move on to configuring the desired wireless connection. Is NetworkManager running? (Wicked or NetworkManager can be used, but the latter is easier to work with for new users and those that change network environments frequently.)
That looks as expected, but NetworkManager is not enabled. This means that wicked is likely to be in use.
Anyway, to switch to NetworkManager…
YaST > System > Network Settings > Global Options > change the ‘Network Setup Method’ to ‘Network Manager Service’ and then click ‘OK’. There should now be a NM icon available on the desktop to allow configuration. The guide has the details about configuring, but ask if you need further assistance.
