OpenSuse 10.2

Filed under
SUSE

I remember installing a Linux distro for the first time back in April 2000. I had bought the magazine Chip(now renamed to Digit), which had come with a cd of Suse 6.3 Linux. I was curious to know how other operating systems looked like. So after a lot of convincing at home I finally installed it. I was shocked with the number of applications that came out of the box. It was amazing to use another operating system. Forward to 2007, and I go buy ‘Linux For You’ and they give Open Suse 10.2 - As expected I was curious to see what they had done with their distro. I was impressed with Ubuntu 6.06LTS. But it did not detect my serial mouse out of the box which was a bit painful. It also did not detect my onboard video card - because of which I was stuck in a resolution of 640×480. And I couldn’t get my reliance modem work on Ubuntu. So I had plenty of reasons to try a new distro.

I pop in the Open Suse 10.2 DVD and reboot.

Korora 21

My install went quite well, I had no problems and the install itself was relatively speedy. Bear in mind, however, that I have used the Anaconda installer often in the past. So I’m quite familiar with how it is laid out and what it has to offer. Use the Fedora install guide for Anaconda I linked to above if you’re new to it as it might save you some time when installing Korora 21. Read more

How to run Linux and Chrome OS on your Chromebook

Chromebooks are pretty darn handy. Even some hardcore Windows users now acknowledge that a Chromebook might be just what you need for work. But, as great as Chromebooks are, and as much progress as Google has made in getting "Web-only" apps such as Google Docs to work offline, there are still times that you want an application that's only available off-line such as the LibreOffice office suite or the GIMP photo editor. For those times, it's darn handy to be able to run a Linux desktop on a Chromebook. Read more
