  1. Any Triathletes here? Completed a Super Sprint Triathlon this morning (300m swim + 15k bike + 3k run).

    Network Manager

    Can't try Plasmoid Network Manager right now. It conflicts with Knetworkmanager which has to be uninstalled before plasmoid can be installed.

    Network Manager

    It looks like the Network Manager app in Ubuntu, Sabayon and openSuSE are the same. Not sure about version numbers though. The odd thing is that whenever I use an OS with Gnome and Network Manager, my 5.0ghz wireless network is available and works great. If I use KDE and Network Manager, only the 2.4 ghz network is available.
  4. I've had an ATI HD4350 video card here for a little while. Hadn't put it in because I wasn't sure it would be any better than the onboard GeForce8250. Got two surprises. - a couple benchmark tests show it's much better than the onboard card - openSuSE 11.3 didn't barf when I booted up, it simple used a default driver for that card. 1-Click install for the ATI card and I'm in pretty good shape. Now I may have to get a decent card and pass this on to someone else in the house
  5. Hello, Just wondering, is it better to specify mount points like /windows and /data during a Linux OS installation or to deal with those partitions after the installation is complete. I usually specify the mount points during the installation and then edit fstab to have read write access to those partitions. If I don't add the partions during installation, I "think" the partitions will show up as storage devices or separate hard drives.
  6. I think English football has some serious questions to answer anyway
  7. Thanks very much Bruce. Sounds like a great time to try an ATI card.
  8. I plan on giving it a try tomorrow. Will be testing a different video card at the same time. http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?showtopic=186644
  9. For those that are interested in testing. openSUSE 11.3 RC1
  10. I've had trouble Atheros chipsets in the past as well. Odd since they're open source now. For me, I've had the best luck with Ralink chipsets.
  11. I have booted up the Live KDE and Gnome desktop versions. First thought about KDE was that it was the ugliest implementation of KDE that I've seen. Man, they need some graphics people on the team. Next, tried to connect to my wireless access point. I see the SSID but get repeat prompts for the password, which I'm sure is being entered correctly. Long story short, can't get it to work end of test. Same for Gnome....end of test. openSuse is working so well for me that I don't feel like frigging around with it until 11.3 comes out. Cheers.
  12. Know of any good ones you used ??
