Was looking for a welcome / introduction thread

I’m looking to test Tumbleweed, but have a couple of questions. I noticed that you don’t use the nVidia drives out of the gate but we can auto-install them using Firefox. I’d like to know once the proprietary driver for nVidia is installed using that method if after that it will just auto-update with everything else? Next I see a lot of distros switching from Pulse to Pipewire and was wondering if you had or are going to and if you have plans to do so if I’ll have to do anything on my end to get Pipewire running properly? Lastly how long before I can edit my profile settings and general settings? Thanks in advance for any and all help with my questions.

You should have a look at the Wiki.



Before you are able to edit your profile you need to to be member for a defined time and post some stuff. See Forum FAQ: https://forums.opensuse.org/faq.php?faq=novfor#faq_sigfaq

Also see sticky thread:

Hi and welcome to the Forum :slight_smile:
I only run nvidia as a secondary card, primary is AMD, I install mine the hardway, eg run file as can have finer grain control. Depending on the age of your Nvidia gpu, changes are coming with the release of the MIT/GPL version of the nvidia driver. AFAIK if you install the rpms, it should rebuild on a kernel update.

I’ve switched to pipewire without issues (there are a few forum threads on this) as well as using JDSP4Linux with pipewire.

As user hui indicated, post some more and then should be able to do more Forum profile modifications.

Thanks for the replies. This is my current setup.

Forgot to ask that as you can see I currently have Manjaro. I also have Garuda on another drive. I want to wipe the Garuda drive and replace it with Tumbleweed. I should still be able to dual boot just with Manjaro and Tumbleweed, right? I want to get Tumbleweed installed, slowly lean my way around it while still having my full setup under Manjaro. Thanks

What type of booting Legacy or UEFI? I would suggest you start o new thread as users will want more information :wink:

Here is mine, as you can seen no pulseaudio server running…

All I want to be sure of is that even with it’s own boot partition Tumbleweed won’t override grub setting for Manjaro. Tumble weed will have the standard boot partition and a / BTRFS partition for the OS with on swap what so ever.

As said earlier, this sub-forums is NOT for technical support.

Please start a new thread for every problem, in the sub-forums that fits best and give it a title that tell people, that browse through new arriving titles, what you are asking about. That gives you the best chance that people that know about your subject will see your question/problem and come to your assistance. And I assume that is what you want: help from those specialized in the subject.

Yea just installed and for the most part looks pretty good.

Closing this thread, and as Henk already mentioned please start new threads (with a suitably descriptive title) for each issue you would like support with.
