Just another tip for installing external software:

If you want more software and don't want to go looking for software repos. Just go into YaST and you'll see an option called "Package Search(Webpin)" It will search Packman and you can install packages without subscribing to the repo.

You'll most likely be able to get the MP3 enabled xine there, DVD playback, VLC and codecs.

Nice, thanks Sean.

OK guys, it seems the NVIDIA repos have been populated.

Go to YaST>Software Repositories, Click Add and put just what's in this image.



You might have to do the nomodeset thing like in my thread. A reboot shouldn't be needed usually because the Nouveau driver was never in the kernel up until recently, now it is, it needs to be disabled because it conflicts with the binary driver as said.

He's probably got a Pentium 2 with a half Mb graphics card with 64mb of ram lined up for it

Sorry guys. You can now do 1-Click Install which I've provide for the NVIDIA drivers for easy install.

HA!

I love that 1 click btw. It will be a month or so before I have a new laptop, but if it has discreet gfx, It will be Nvidia, so this will come in very handy.

It'll feel strange installing NV that way though...got so used to doing it manually.

I installed it on a Vostro 1720 with 4 gigs of Ram and a GeForce 9600 Graphics card in it.

Question: How do I get it to recognize my wireless router?

What do you mean? openSUSE should pickup your wireless card or Ethernet port. Not sure about KDE4 but in GNOME you can enable Network Manager to set your wireless up.

By default, openSUSE doesn't use Network Manager but you can setup it up within Network Setting in YaST.

It's picking up my wireless card--just not my router. I've tried at home and here at work...

I don't understand the router issue, since it's not in the equation. If your wireless card is live and connected to your network, then that's it. Are you talking about connecting to it via the web browser?

I must admit, I'm not the ideal person to talk to in regard to networking and router setup.
