I just installed my new Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10.
The good thing is that it recognized my Bewan dsl modem easily, allowing me to be here with you!
I had a short-lived first experience with Linux (Suse 7.1) about 5 or 6 years ago with a Motorola cable modem. I then moved to DSL and tried several distros several times over the years, but my modem (bewan PCI then) was never recognized, and I certainly had no clue as to how do it with a konsole and command lines, all by my lonesome!!
But now, life is good and here I am able to ask questions.
--Suse 10 came with Firefox 18.104.22.168 installed and I managed (How???) to update it with an RPM of 22.214.171.124. Some progress!!
I then DLed the new FF 126.96.36.199 version as a tar.gz. It now sits on my desktop and I am at a loss as to what to do next.
Same ol' question from a newbie, I gather: what to do to install a tar.gz thingie? Where is the Linux equivalent of "program files" (assuming there is such an equivalent)?
Step by step holding my hand, please!!!
Now I realize I'm here in the intro forum, and it's probably not the place where to ask software installation questions, so I hope someone can direct me to the proper place.
Thanks a lot!!!
