Hi John VV,
[QUOTE=John VV;4864039]the old opensuse 11.1 ( also EOL)
did not support a lot of hardware (but most worked)
the current opensuse 12.2 dose support most hardware , "out of the box"
and Debian stable is ( i think) is just a bit older than suse 11.1 ( Debian is rather conservative , but less so than redhat
it might not support your wireless without building a kernel mod
Opensuse 12.2 "should" support your
see suse thread
Now I am sold!
sorry, but any student should do "the research" !!! ( or fail the course)
and learning a new and different operating system is no different than taking a class .
Fair if I was doing a course but I wasn't.
I wanted to get something to work with a distro I had at hand.
Now you have given more than research can find; that Debian is even older and slower and suse 12.2 should work!
Now you give me reason to go out and spend the 10 or 15 euro to get Suse 12.2
I can attempt with debian still and even go back to Suse but this time with 12.2
I will try now with Debian. I actually have a debian pre 7 dvd, as installed is
only 6.06. Will definitely get the Suse 12.2 next chance I have.
thank you for replying
And if I am a pain, well Sorry, I am probably one of those young ones who were always asking "but why" again and again.
