So I did it after a couple years of weak excuses and alot of procrastination. I finally decided that 09 would be the year I broke free of the MS shackles.
That being said my home is now Pure Suse.
I installed it on both my laptop and my desktop!
the laptop is a HP nc8230 and i am excited to report this system hit the ground running with the base install
the desktop is a hp dc7600 small form factor PC wit a nvidia pci-e card installed… again all devices appear functional with no extra configuration.
(well i had to update the nvidia repo and rerun sax2 no big deal)
so as one can tell this isnt a HELP (insert item) doesn’t work post.
no this is a okie whats next? im new to linux and want t get even more speed and power from this os.
so can some veterans give me some guidelines as what i can do to tweak both systems for maximum performance?
I dont do gaming anymore (a big reason i finally ditched MS)
im interested in programming 3d design and multimedia all of which is greatly supported.
but i KNOW i can shave this system down for even more goodness so vets speak up if you had these systems or even if not whats your general post install steps to get the most out of this very impressive OS?
