So I have installed Suse Linux on my Windows PC about 5 days ago. I have managed to get everything working somewhat normally. I do have questions though just about the whole grand scheme of things...
What the hell are dependencies?? I know they really piss me off because anytime I try to install something new it says there are issues with them.
Is a Rpm the equivelent to an EXE file??
I really want VLC player on my linux box Why cant I just go download the one that says it is for Suse Linux 10.1 and just install it I looked at a tutorial on how to install it and it looked like it would take hours.
How come when I type some of the commnads in the console that people are saying I need to type to do this or that It does not recognize them??
If Linux is supported by so many great programmers How come nobody has just come up with a compilled package of a great media player, Including all codecs, MP3 palyer, Flash & Java stuff, WMV stuff, all wrapped up into one thing where all I have to do is like click on it and it all is installed and goes to the right directories?
Other wise so far I love it I just wish it wasnt so tedius to install software.
