I want to change of Ubuntu to the other great distro, openSUSE.
First of all: It's good option? I tell it by the polemics of the agreement with Microsoft. I don't understand the commotion because there isn't clear information and I understand that simply is an agreement to improve compatibilities among both platforms. Who is benefited more?
The motive is that Ubuntu gives me many problems of stability and hung up. I have tired. Although Ubuntu seems me faster, openSUSE is more complete and stable, although I have had some problems after installing it:
After trying to work my wireless, the system was hang me numerous times and to login didn't work the keyboard and mouse. I had to reinstall it a second time.
For my device, the system load the rt73usb driver, which doesn't work well as occurs me in Ubuntu. I try to install the rt73 driver of serialmonkey but then begin my surprises:
Not work the console commands: modprobe, iwconfig, iwconfig,...
It's a path problem?, how do I add the paths to all commands?
I try to do 'make' but tells me that I lack the gcc package. I install the gcc package but doesn't find the headers of the kernel. I install the kernel-source package. I launch 'make' and begins me to compile what I understand is all the kernel of the system, for 15-20 minutes, and then compiles the rt73 module. I launch 'make install' and all the installs me again kernel and after finishing the module driver.
What's happening!, this is normal?
I try to launch modprobe but doesn't find the command. I find it in ‘/sbin'. I launch it but tells me that doesn't find the module.
in the installation inherit the structure of users of Ubuntu. The system launched me the error 'Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied’ to mount the disks. I fixed it adding the users to the groups 'dbus' and 'hal'. In the second installation I didn't inherit the users and the problem was removed.
Besides in each start of the system remains the volume to zero, ???
Still having installed the driver: how do I configure the connection? The network administrator not allow to specify the necessary name ‘rausb0'. I have seen that allow to enter the module name, refers at rt73?
I am completely lost. Ubuntu facilitated me many things and I find me with many problems to put working openSUSE. That Linux allow to choose is very debatable.
Should throw me back and to continue with ubuntu?
Sorry for the translation of Spanish.
