Suse 8 (ex-Slackware member)


if you find the ISO version of suse 8 please post the url here.

cheers..

Well I am tired with the slackware. . . .no way I can configure my printer and my webcam and my wintv . . .

I wanna stop using windows and the only way is by tried all the linux disto that claim to be able to find your hardware easily..

However I am not gonna use Redhat . . and mandreka thats for sure..

you won't find the iso's anywhere.. if you want it free.. either get someone to burn it for you or download via ftp.. or buy it of course. SuSE doesn't release iso's for download, only the live evaluation version.

well its hard..

1. I have a modem connection which sucks...
2. I have to download it from the library (quite fast), but I have to transfer the files at home with zip-follpies in 100MB each,( I have only 7 zip-discs
3. I have only one partition in fat32 , I use it to store personal files and be able to access it from both win32 + linux
4. but that partition is only 5GB , which is not enough to put the linux stup files in it, and start the installation from the disc.

5. I am not sure if I will manage to setup my printer and web cam so I might get back to slackware and waste 45 to buy something that is gonna be old in a few months.

So I think its much easier if someone make the ISOs available..,,,
otherwise I can say linux sucks.......(just suitable to run server applications only, but not 4 my everyday workstation) windows are never gonna be abandoned cause make file easy...

the nrg is ISO format . . .its the way that nero (I think) use to save the images..

try to rename them to .iso and open them with the "winimage" program to be sure that they are ISOs..


or just try to burn them . . . as image files.. the burning software usually tells you if the format is invalid..

3 years ago when I tried for first time suse it was 5 CDS, of which 4 where the installation and the 5th was the live_CD- that is used for demontrations...

I am not sure if suse is 8 or 9 CD total. I will find it out in 3 days when I receive my ordered copy

For sure you need the first 7 CDs... what difference does it make if you download one more

About the personal version I dont know what you have to do cause I havn't got the cds yet..

There must be an option to do a workstation installation or a server one... But I believe the packages will be mixes up among all cds..

you can check the suse site to see how many CDs its suse8
