OpenSuSE 11.3 is out. This will be the first release in quite a few years that I won’t try at the day of release. I’ve been using OpenSuSE since Pre-Novell (9.0 I believe), and have usually upgraded as soon as possible. But why not this time? Because the last three times I tried to upgrade, […]
I will not try OpenSuSE 11.3 for the next few weeks.
OpenSuSE 11.2 – keyboard does not work in X.org

Intel x3100/GMA 965 and OpenSuSE 11.1
This is not needed anymore. Following these instructions might leave you with a non-working install OpenSuSE 11.1 works quite alright on Intel hardware, with one major quirk: 3D rendering is utterly broken. Or rather – it was when it shipped. If you suspect you’ve got this problem, run glxgears from a terminal, and watch the […]

Apt on OpenSuSE 10.3
OpenSuSE has yast2 and zypper, so why apt you might ask? Because apt-get is simply superior to zypper and yast2, and apt is far far quicker than zypper on resolving depencies. And apt-cache search is nicer than zypper’s search feature. So for me, apt is a nice tool… To get Apt working, you’ll have to […]

Pop in CD, boot, and install from network. Due to a decent internet connection at school, this is somewhat faster than installing from DVD. The laptop […]
