LIP 04: Summarizing our first distro: OpenSuse 10.1

Posted in Suse, Vim at 3:58 am by serge

Our fourth show brings us to our summary evaluation of OpenSuse. Before we say goodby to our first distro, we do a source install of Vim 7.0, just because we can. Along the way we set up a few aliases  for good measure. We talk a bit about the history of Suse, the community and how our Windows relatives found our test machine to work. We close with our first summary score of a distribution (sorry you have to listen to learn how many stars Suse got) as well as a brief discussion of the show’s philosophy and plans for the future.

LIP 03: Suse and Vim 7.0

Posted in Debian, G5, Suse, Vim at 4:38 am by serge

Our third week with Suse finds us exploring the Yast2 package manager in search of the latest version of the one true editor Vim. Alas, we run into rpm hell and our first real speedbump with Suse. We also discuss the revamping of thelip Lab hardware, and a side project attempting to install Debian on a Power Mac G5.

LIP 02: Configuring Wireless on Suse

Posted in Package Management, Suse, Wireless at 4:31 am by serge

The honeymoon with Suse continues, albeit with some interesting twists, as we set about configuring the wireless card that was not configured during the initial install. In the process we explore package management with Suse and find that patience is a virtue.
