Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well I'm glad to hear that you finally managed to get your kernel working and that you now have internet access(?). As far as AppArmor not loading goes, you might have to deal with that on its own. Unless it's something that has been overlooked in it's configuration, It's probably a problem worth it's own thread. You can start it here or in the Linux Software.
As far as the internet not working, it came up with a thing about FATAL: Module ip_conntrack not found. Is securityfs loaded? I did a little checking and installed the latest iptables patch.
If the patch solved the problem, great, but that is more likely a kernel configuration issue. A lot of the iptables modules aren't compiled by default, so you may need to go through your kernel config and add them. Look in Networking > Networking Options > Network Packet filtering Framework. A lot of the needed modules are in the options below that.
Any clues as to why AppArmor didn't load?
I've never used AppArmor, so I really don't know. A complete and total guess is that it is somehow dependent on the kernel, so it either needs to be recompiled against your new kernel or there is some kernel configuration that needs to be tweaked.
That looks like you don't have your kernel source code installed. There is almost certainly a package for it either on your install disks or on a Suse repository.
Hi I have similar problem but im a newer newbie than the last guy, so this may make you laugh... I have the same error message.... and I dont know how to configure the kernal in that folder. I have searched the DVD opensuse for a kernal file but there are hundreds of RPM's (which one am i looking for?
Im trying to get my wireless network card working so i can go on the net using linux. i have the same marvel chipset, so i guess i'll need to run this ndiswrapper and the XP driver. I will need a little more guidance i supppose.
Since I don't use Suse, I'm not sure how much help I'll be, but you're probably looking for something along the lines of kernel-version-src.rpm. You might want to ask this question in the Suse forum to get a definitive answer. By the way, you won't need to configure anything, just having the source code for your running kernel (which will include the configuration files Suse used) will be sufficient for ndiswrapper to compile.
Hi genuisgene, go into YaST and then into Software Management. Do a search for 'kernel' and it should bring up 'kernel-sources' or something like that. Select that one. I think you need to do a search for 'gcc' and install that as well with all the dependencies that it automatically brings up.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a great way to connect with openSUSE community members in real time chat and for support. IRC uses popular client software, such as Konversation, Kvirc, X-Chat or instant messenger clients that support the IRC protocol. All are included in openSUSE. Although chatting occurs in a group forum, you can also privately chat with online members.
The main support channel is #opensuse on irc.opensuse.org. To start chatting, simply click on the #opensuse link! To see a complete list of all IRC channels, and support channels in other languages, head over to Communicate/IRC. If you are new to IRC take a look at Communicate/IRCforNewbies.
I have used OpenSuse. They have a web. Take a look above, as they have a IRC where you can chat with people who have used it. They also have a page on ndiswrapper. The latest version is 10.3, I think.
Wificraig has an answer for a problem with ndiswrapper. Find his post answer in the newbies section. I do not know how to tell you where it is. There is no URL to give for it. It has a tag of ndiswrapper.
