Hello Guys I am running openSuse 11.0 on my Compaq CQ60 laptop, I have been able to muich tweaks but there aree two major issues I have with its ntwk Management.
First the eth0 ip is not plug n play by that I mean if i configure an IP I have to restart the Laptop even if I dont use the Network Manager which is said to have issues, this is even worse that even after pinking the IP I cant ping anything except the eth IP.
Also my wireless doesn’t work.
