Just installed, now what?


I have just finished installing SuSE 10 on my machine and I am looking for insperation, where should i go from here.

I would really like to find s client for my google talk account...any ideas?

I really am stumped on where to go from here, it's 03:16am and I cant really think about anything so any ideas on ways I can play with my new system would be greatly thanked.

PLEASE bare in mind i am a TOTAL newbie, and I have never even SEEN a cli till today, so please, nothing overly complicated in ways of play

Thanking all muchly in advance of your (possible) help!

Nay



P.s I'm having trouble getting my webcam to work with aMSN!

Not real sure about the google talk, I think gaim works, but it may not do everything the google client uses. As for other ideas of what to do one place to look to go through the package manager to see if something jumps out as interesting. Also I'd recommend start going through some tutorials. Two good ones are here andhere
