SUSE 10.1 and RT2500 Wi-Fi

HowTos

I installed SUSE Linux 10.1 just to realize that my wireless card, which is Asus WL-130g PCI, supporting 802.11b/g, is not functioning. The card is based on Ralink's RT2500 chip. I was very upset as I really needed the card to function, which is installed on desktop. Many are having the same problem, so I decided to write a walkthrough.

SUSE 10.1: ATI Drivers Installation

HowTos

Got my SUSE Linux 10.1 up and runnin and already enjoying, though still got to go through all the customization. I will probably post a review on my experience with SUSE 10.1. But one thing for sure, the ATI drivers gave me a little kick, before I came up with these instructions, that I hope will work on most of the computers. Remember that I was trying to install these drivers as to later be able to install and launch Xgl/Compiz on desktop.

This time I decided to make the howto with more pics, thinking that maybe this way it will be easier for you guys to understand what is going on. At least I tried my best, well nearly. Here we go.

Novell Pot Meets Community Kettle

SUSE

I think we may have hurt Novell's feelings.

That's really the only reason I can come up with to justify CTO Jeff Jaffe's remarks regarding the open source community during a product announcement briefing with CNET News earlier this week. That--or a desperate need to grab headlines.

SUSE Linux 10.1 Final Report

It is certainly no secret that OpenSUSE released their SUSE Linux 10.1 Final yesterday. The news was carried on about every computer news site in existence. It was big news and just about everyone was excited. I'd like to know how many downloads have actually occurred. The site had to be minimized early in the morning and downloads from all the mirrors I tried moved like molasses. I'm not sure, but it seems this release has generated even more interest than the landmark 10.0 last October. Perhaps I can understand that, given that this release has some exciting new features. I would speculate that on the top of many people's list is the inclusion of the XGL desktop. We at tuxmachines have tried to keep you abreast of the changes coming forth from the SUSE team, but the final was even better than we dared to predict. This is our final report on the development cycle of 10.1.

SUSE

After being postponed, SUSE 10.1 was finally released on the 11th of May. That day, http://www.opensuse.org was down, probably dying under the huge number of people eagerly pressing F5 on their Internet browser. However, the ISO files were present on a few mirrors and the "GM" (Gold Master) acronym in their name indicated that this was the official release.

SUSE

In this review, I'm hopefully going to highlight most of the changes Joe end-user might notice when upgrading or switching over to 10.1. As with every SUSE release we get to see some new eye-candy and graphics on the install, and this time around SUSE has not left me disappointed in the least.

Making sense out of SUSE's delta releases

Filed under
SUSE

"What's the deal with those 'delta' releases for SUSE 10.1? I can't get them to work." A "delta" to a program, in and of itself, is no good to man or beast. It's simply the code of the changes between one version of a program and another. To make use of a SUSE 10.1 delta, you first have to have a copy of the original code.

OpenSuSE released rc3 of their upcoming SuSE Linux 10.1 yesterday right on target as planned and reported on the Roadmap. I thought rc2 was just about gold worthy myself and was anxious to see the changelog for rc3. Well, they disappointed me on a few issues but all in all, they are probably getting closer to that final release.

After seeing the specs for the OQO model 01+ tablet palmtop PC, I knew I had to put SUSE 10.0 Linux on it and do a review. OQO currently offers only a Windows XP version. To say the OQO/SUSE Linux combination is a "geek magnet" is to overstate the obvious.
