I’ve installed OpenSUSE 10.2, here’s my first impressions…

Filed under
SUSE

I recently built myself a new computer. I did this because it’s time for me to move out from my parents place. I’m turning 20 years old in September, after all.
My computer at the moment consists of:

1. Ace Spades IV Case + 50o watts PSU
2. MSI K9N Neo-F Motherboard
3. AMD Athlon X2 4200+
4. One gigabyte Kingston RAM (667 Mhz DDR2)
5. MSI Geforce 8400GS (265 Mb)
6. Seagatate Barracuda 250Gb (SATA, 16Mb Cache)

and… an old CD-RW unit. I ran out of money so I decided to use my old CD-RW drive for now. I will invest in a SATA DVD+-RW and a memorycard-reader soon.

So for my new computer I first installed Ubuntu, then Kubuntu, and now.. OpenSUSE 10.2.

I have tried OpenSUSE 10.1 before, which was buggy as hell so I was a bit skeptical about installing 10.2, however this release is MUCH better.

  • Watch this highlight reel of iAlwaysSin's Alien Isolation livestreams!
    Last Thursday the newest member of the GOL Livestream Team, iAlwaysSin, completed her live playthrough of the extremely scary Alien Isolation. And, to commemorate this achievement (and all the deaths that occurred in the process) I decided to download and edit all the VODs together into a nice highlight reel. With my sarcastic remarks, of course.

Manjaro Linux: Reliable and Up to Date, Geekdom Optional

Regular readers can pretty much ignore this one. We’ll be back to cartoons, O’s baseball and the usual inanity soon, tomorrow in fact. I just wanted to revisit my dedication to Linux, prompted by a recent mixed bag of experiences that left me feeling even more positive about a relative newcomer to the distro scene: Manjaro. It all started a few days ago, when I decided to finally try to update the eight remaining Linux installs on my main desktop PC. I’ve been using Linux Mint (18.1 Cinnamon) as my daily driver for several months, originally in an attempt to keep my bandwidth usage to a reasonable level, and then due to inertia/lack of issues. I could have gone with my trusty Debian stable install, my go-to for years up till then, but I guess I was just getting bored. Read more
