I was an ubuntu user for 2 years. I had some problem with ubutu and I migrated to Mandriva 1 year ago. at the moment I have no problem with mandriva except lack some software. I mean I could not install some software on Mandriva. Now I have decided to migrate to Susu. I want the variety of softwares in suse is more than Mandriva?
In particular I want to have some computational softwares like freefem and Fenics on my computer. I could not install these in Mandriva.
Also the suspend-resume for laptop is very important for me. Does this feature work perfectly in Susu?
I do not use Mandriva, so I can not comment on a comparison. A web site you can go to in order to do searches for pre-compiled/packaged rpms for openSUSE is Webpin
I did a brief search on these and found no rpms built. You may be forced to build from source code, which could be difficult or easy, dependent on your Linux experience and the nature of how easy the developer(s) has made such compilation.
The fenics web site here: Download - The FEniCS project has some custom method for building fenics for various distributions, including openSUSE. It may be hard or difficult.
The freefem web site here: freeFEM.org and here: Freefem++ Home Page (7-november-2005) with no reference to an rpm for openSUSE, only a link to a freefem+±3.6.tar.gz that would need to be downloaded and custom compiled, which may or may not be difficult.
I assume you mean openSUSE, and not SLED, nor SLES, nor Susu (I’ve never heard of “Susu” ) . Reference “suspend-resume” it works for some laptops and not for others. You need to search on your own laptop. There is some outdated information here: HCL/Laptops - openSUSE
