Suse 10.0

Hi
I have Desktop PC Dell-optiplex 330.
with NIC Brodcom Netxtrem 57xx GB controller.

i have install suse 10.0 but can’t install nic driver.

Please Advice

Why do you want to use a distribution which is out of support? The actual stable is 11.3.

Is this open SUSE, or SLES, SLED?

SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop version 10 is a commercial product of
Novell and the best help for it is at their site, forums.novell.com

on the other hand if you are using the free and open source SUSE
version 10 it has reached its end of service life…see
http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime

if not using the commercial version you are strongly encouraged to
upgrade to a newer version 11.1, 11.2 or 11.3…all of which are
receiving security updates and bug fixes…

though, you may get a good answer here, if you wanna hang out and see…

to learn exactly which you have installed, put either of these in a
terminal command line, and hit enter:

cat /etc/SuSE-release
cat /etc/issue

That is right, but what when the threadstarter meant SuSE Linux 10.0 OSS?
The product is called openSUSE since 10.2 but not before.

i thought i covered all possible products, no matter what the OP meant
to type:

SUSE Linux 10.0 <see http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime
which is past end of service life

SLED 10 <see http://support.novell.com/lifecycle/
which is supported at the novell forums, as stated…

what other situation or software release did i miss, and you wish i
hadn’t??

You will need a fresh install, upgrading from 10.0 is not supported.

Yes, of course it is.

Don’t confuse “upgrade” with “live upgrade” - aka zypper dup. The latter is not, the former (aka dvd
upgrade, aka traditional upgrade) is indeed supported on any version.

As far as “support” goes, which is quite limited. And of course, the bigger the upgrade jump, lesser
is the chance of success.

Well, it seems you are correct… However I would need a very good reason before I would try it.

10.0 appears to be a fresh install, I see no good reason there.

11.1 to 11.3 was problematic enough without just the right video/sound
combo. Add to that the problems I recall going from 10.3 to 11.0 and I’d
want long odds before laying a bet on success, especially if the target
machine is more than a year or so old. The fancy automation of video and
audio setups with 11.3 can get really scrambled when X configuration files
are carried forward in the users home which conflict with the automatic
selections.
