2 Linux Problems w/SUSE 10.


I've gotten used to SUSE 10 so chyea Imma use SUSE.

I got 2 computers

http://portalforums.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=54 <-- 64BIT AMD One

So imma use 64 bit suse for it.

When I went to install it and it went throught all 5 CD's the root password guy decided that my keyboard cant work so I cant add a password :'(

Now for my other problem, its a IBM T22 Laptop, I dont got time to download ALL of suse and burn it all just for this pos laptop so I want to use the minimal ISO and I cant find the YAST repo where I point the install to :'( I tryed http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...1/inst-source/ after I typed F3 changed my res and did F4 and set it to HTTP

Hi

If you want a lightweight version of SUSE for your laptop, look here. I have tried this distro and it is very minimal in the default programs it includes and is build for performance, but it operates like any other SUSE distro.

We will need more information about your keyboard problem before any suggestions can be offered. It was obviously not detected at installation.

Hope this helps

Bob

When you say the keyboard doesn't work, do you mean that you just don't see any asterisks or anything when you try to enter a password? If so, that's normal and your password will be entered.
