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

Filed under

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.

Learning The Linux File System

Before we get started, let’s avoid any confusion. There are two meanings to the term “File System” in the wonderful world of computing: First, there is the system of files and the directory structure that all of your data is stored in. Second, is the format scheme that is used to write data on mass storage devices like hard drives and SSD’s. We are going to be talking about the first kind of file system here because the average user will interact with his or her file system every time they use a computer, the format that data is written in on their storage devices is usually of little concern to them. The many different file systems that can be used on storage is really only interesting to hardware geeks and is best saved for another discussion. Now that that’s cleared up, we can press on.
