Managed to sacrifice my hacked windows xp so that i needed to install everything again for it to work… bah… **** windows…
Just installed this and it looks pretty sweet… had Ubuntu on my desktop but had to put xp back on cause i couldn’t get iTunes to work or any linux based ipoddery to work more than once… but plan to add another distro on it eventually…
Few questions about it tho… Running on the Dell Laptop as mentioned… would i just use ndsiwrapper and the relevant drivers to get the wifi to work? or is there something more suse specific? how do i install .JAR files? i thought they were some kind of archive like rpm’s and deb’s… is it java based??
and does anyone know how to use the backspace key to go back on web pages like it used to… I keep sitting for about ten minutes then realise it aint going anywhere!!!
how do I get it to recognize USB devices such as memory sticks and optical mice… as my touch pad thing is very intermittent with its movement…
Amarok 1.4 seems to have an option for connecting to an ipod (I use a Zen so no idea if it actually works)
Would need some more information about the card, try the network/wireless section of the forums.
It’s in the HCL marked as functional… so one way or another it works.
err if I remember correctly the command java -jar PathToJar, if you’re using KDE rightclick the start menu (launcher) icon, choose “menu editor” create a new entry and point it to the jar file works as an easier accessible solution.
Plug your mouse in and it works, you can try settings your mouse to the ‘default usb mouse’ driver in YaST > Control Center, will kill of any scrolling via the touchpad though so you might want to inquire on the hardware forum for a better solution.
Hi to you to, please make use of the appropriate forums as chit-chat isn’t really intended for providing help and your questions are most likely answered faster in the other parts of the forum.
Hope you enjoy the fresh green more then the boring old brown

after all that it turned out that xfce really didn’t wanna work… put kde 4 on and it’s soooooo much better!!! I even managed to get past the cd mounting issues and I actually could have some repositories!!!
