Open SuSE Linux 10.2 Review

OpenSuSE 10.2 Review:

I know its’ a little late for this now because 10.3 is out, but I am going to review OpenSuSE Linux 10.2 anyways.

Here are the pros:

  • Uses Gnome, KDE, or any other Window Manager that you can select from a list.
  • Works on my laptop, though I did need to put in the commands for the installation, after the installation the boot loader didn’t need to have the commands put into the xorg.conf file. 
  • Installation was 32 minutes long (NEW RECORD for installation time!)
  • Has the old version of Pidgin (Gaim (An instant messaging client) which is always good to have)
  • Has the 2.6.18.2 kernel.
  • Has Xorg 7.2.

Here are the cons:

·         Is now out of date.

·         I should upgrade

 

 

Things I should find out are:

·         How to install Broadcom wireless driver

·         How to install Nvidia Graphics

That is all for now, Mandriva 2008 is coming up next for review,
