This is a beginner friendly visual guide on how to start using your newly installed openSuSE 11.1 Linux.

In previous screencast we demonstrated how easy it is to install modern Linux distribution (openSuSE 11.1 to be exact). In this screencast we explore a bit the newly installed system and the new KDE4 desktop. We also learn how to access YaST, a superb system administration tool and how to change display resolution with it.

  1. @PetriJarvenpaa It worked like a charm! πŸ™‚ I now have aMSN and Minecraft up and running under Linux as well as some development software. Linux might not be designed for games but for web browsing and development it's perfect! Just wanted to let you know about a new and satisfied Linux user. πŸ™‚ Hope you make more such videos.

  3. @CtrlAltEgon Thanks! Be sure to install the latest version (openSUSE 11.4 currently) and hopefully your wireless works out of the box. You should be able to see the "NetworkManager" detect some wireless networks and then you will know it is indeed working. If the Wireless is not detected even by Yast -> Network Devices then you might be out of luck with your hardware compatibility with openSUSE. Best of luck.

  4. I really enjoyed the music you put in this one. πŸ™‚ Nice tutorials. Getting ready to install openSUSE… although I still need to learn how to setup the internet connection in openSUSE (wireless in my situation).
