Ah…it’s a good thing that automatic thing goes off sometimes to point

No need to duck, i reckon it would be a good idea ( if you know how ). We have had a few Q’s about nntp


U may not but I know back then before DEC08 I use first time Mandriva linux and every hardware was working,no problem.
When I use first time openSuse in DEC08 I have to ask first time about Repository and so on.It was very hard what to use in Repository,caf4926 he did the wright thing and he did very good job,if Im in his Country Ill take him for dinnerrotfl!



Thanks for the vote of confidence. But the guide just covers the basics. There can be much more involved with repositories as many of you will be aware. This one was really just to help newbies - I had been involved with quite a number of threads where users were having trouble with this basic prerequisite for using openSUSE.

I can see in our community few of them have problem and what caf4926 pointed out it will help.


Wouldn’t it be possible to make a pop-up window appear after installation explaining how things work?

It’s not so hard or is it??
