Search - "opensuse"
Recently started using Arch after a year of distro hopping starting from Ubuntu, to Fedora, to Mint, to Opensuse. I have never been as satisfied with a distro as I have with Arch. I have learnt so much from just fiddling and reading through the archwiki.
Once you go Arch you don't go back.41
When your school doesn't give you the root password of your openSUSE laptop but an encrypted file with all the passwords of the school even the director's one just to stimulate you3
Switching Linux distros and a friend says I should check out openSUSE so I download it, boot it up and I'm greeted by this...4
While trying to install OpenSUSE on my home server, something has gone wrong...
I appear to have installed OpenSUSE onto the flash drive plugged into my server instead... 😐8
There was an ad for a dating website before a video about linux.
YouTube is getting quite offensive.
I also am seriously considering switching to openSUSE4
I have this super comfortable OpenSUSE Tumbleweed shirt that I really like, but my girlfriend does not. She says it makes me look too geeky.
Fine, I wore it to the gym and made new Linux friends there. So I guess I won in the end.
So following a previous rant, I’ve decided to make the jump and move full time to a Linux setup on my PC, with a windows VM (I do much more Ruby and php at home than Windows stuff, so makes sense to use Linux as everyday os.
The question that I need help with is which distro to go with.
I have experience with Ubuntu, OpenSuSE, and Debian, but I’m not adverse to trying something new, I’m even toying with the idea of Arch (but with a few test runs on a vm first)7
[linux distro stuff]
Im considerig switching to linux because:
My macbook does not support mojave and the new ones are expensive af.
Windows 10 is bloated and not a great user experience(removing stuff from the control panel and adding it to the very stripped down settings app, privacy etc..).
I love open source software
However i did not used linux for a long time, back then i used ubuntu and SUSE.
Debian - because .deb on them haters
OpenSUSE - because i used it in the past and it seemed very stable and fast
Arch - i heard from a lot of sources that it’s “da best”
My use case is game development and 3D modeling. I use gimp, blender vscode and unity (the game engine) at work i sometimes use autodesk stuff (motionbuilder, 3ds max) because of fbx.
For audio stuff i use audacity
So overall i’m looking for a distro that is fast, lightweight, i can develop on it (mostly 3D stuff) and occasionally play some games
Anyone has experience with the mentioned distros? What distro would you use for this?7
I am installing openSUSE tumbleweed at the moment. This is my first rolling distro so I am a bit excited but you have to take risks to learn something new :)2
I really love Linux, but i GODDAMN HATE, how nearly no Distro supports installing it on a Custom LVM.
I mean, i just want to have a custom LVM, inside of an encrypted Partition in other Distros than Ubuntu, Debian or Opensuse.1
After working with so many platforms and languages i think OpenSuse and QT5 is the best option for developing desktop/mobile/embedded solutions12
Confession: the first coiple of times I heard of openSUSE, I though it was a slang for "open source"2
back from lunch break, to find my dualboot with Windows 10 & openSUSE uefi having automatically rebooted due to some updates,
and see a busy box message, because secure boot somehow was suddenly enabled (guess the w update)..
good thing i always bring a usb pen with multiple system tools and live distros...1
I want to build my lab at home, a useful lab, what can I buy to make a lab that I will use almost everyday please? I already have MacBook pro, an HP elitebook on OPENSUSE, my main gaming computer on Windows, a Raspberry Pi, tons of cables and a bit of money. Can you help me to find?4
What was your distro journey?
Mine is composed of the following time-based list of the primary distros I've used, along with a smattering of flash-in-the-pan tests, including but not limited to Suse, OpenSuse, OEL, CentOS, Sorceror, Vector, Mint, and ElementaryOS.
1998-1999: Redhat 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3
2005-2007: Debian(I still use it for cloud VPSes)
Hey guys, has anyone got an idea which Linux Distro I could use next? I've already been using Mint, Debian and OpenSUSE but now I'm searching for something different.28
I'm using Elementary OS for few days now, and I can only say that I love it, it's really good looking compared to other Linux I tried before (Debian KDE, Ubuntu Unity, OpenSUSE XFCE) but there's not enough programmers functionality natively integrated4
Linux is great - to tinker, to pull in all your FOSS, mess around...
But it's so fucked up, if you actually build and maintain a product on it, i.e. try to distribute s.th. in binary for money even. It's just not intended. If you offer your code for free, you can always say: "Ah, just compile it yourself. You might need these 29 dependencies, of which 2 are not even checked by configure, oops, and now it crashes, maybe in that qt library version, you picked there's still a bug?.. you know, it worked on my machine, sorry."
But if you sell it, it better install and run! And even if you target only the main distros of all that fragmented Linuverse - let's say, Debian, Ubuntu, RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, and if you're in Germany OpenSuSE and SLES, you'll start to see the crap of work you're up with. What you could try is to orchestrate a docker fleet with one container per distro, where you take the oldest version you still support compile a newer gcc there (to at least have C++11) and all your third party libs and then hope the resulting binary runs on all the newer versions of that distro, too.
(You could even be so brave as to try to pick a deb and rpm distro to build for all other distros.)
But ABI incompatibility can still bite you. For instance we once had the insane case, that our GUI would no longer start just by switching the Window-Manager to KDE.7
Hello all, got my cs bachelor degree recently. I thought about getting a new notebook. Do you have any recommendations? I have my eyes on the xps13 at the moment. Also I want Linux for the notebook so, any recommendations here too? Currently using fedora and thinking about openSUSE Tumbleweed, any thoughts on that? Thanks for your help in advance.1
After some time, planning to install Linux again for personal use and some dev work at home. My current pc is getting too slow sometimes and it irritates me a lot.
My current pc 2gb RAM, Dual core Intel, 32 bit.
Main criteria, os should be fast, I can compromise on GUI, should be stable, should support my old configuration. I like to work on Java/Scala, python, js and sql. Eclipse will be there since I use it at work.
Short listed Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS,
mint (huge confusion on gui),
Opensuse, elementary OS and arch. I had Ubuntu, mint for some time as secondary OS. Arch will be totally new world for me. I have tried few OS in USB boot but couldn't fix one.
Right now I am confused about which one to choose, since everything looks fine but I want the best choice based on my criteria.10
- Installed openSUSE Tumbleweed
- Installed mariadb
- Tried to start the service (several times) with failure
- Searched online, made adjustments as per the suggestions. No luck
- Reinstalled related packages
- Tried again and failed
- Deleted everything in /var/lib/mysql
- Tried again ... and 👍
I've been working on migrating my personal e-mail server for nearly a month.
Old (Linode): opensuse 13.1 (no longer gets update) running postfix + amavis-new(with spamassassin and clamav) + dkimproxy + dovecot
New (Vultr): OpenBSD 6.3 running opensmtpd + spampd(spamassassin proxy) + clamav + dkimproxy + dovecot
I'm surprised I only have 5GB of e-mail, considering I migrated all my gmail there a while back; 5GB for ever e-mail since 2004.
I finally got all the DNS switched over and tested all the end points this morning. The whole thing is done in Ansible so hopefully switching to another provider will be a lot faster:
Nice way to start devops work today:
(from ticket comments, seems someone did not minitor disk space usage :D)
Any opnSUSE users here, I might switch to that distro but I would first like to know what you think.5
Hey, I want to install Linux distribution for my notebook, I hear Fedora and OpenSuse are good, any suggestions?8
Newbie Linux User - Story about not working GUI
I am a proud Opensuse user for about a year, still struggling with some basic stuff, terminal, etc.
The story begins when a few days ago I try to login to the system. To my trusty Gnome. I get stuck on login loop;
successful login - > black screen for a second - > back to login screen.
Zero feedback, not a single error message
Stress level increases taking in count that I am at a climax at my university with tons of projects on my computer.
I assemble the Team A:
Me, Google, Stackoverflow, and for desperate times Russian Stackoverflow
Over 4 hours, found out that my user is affected by this, tried restoring default Gnome configuration, went through bunch of logs only to find out that every user gets the same errors, still only my not working. Even KDE denied to cooperate with the same result.
So what went wrong you may be thinking.
One line in file replaced by miniconda, that changed the PATH.
Linux is the best detective game that I've ever played.
Is it something that I should get used to?2
JetBrains' IDEA. For being smart and integrated out of the box.
Mercurial + hg-git + MutableHistory. Like Git, but actually works and doesn't speak gibberish.
Fish shell. For leaving 80s in peace.
openSUSE Tumbleweed. For actually tested up-to-date software.
GNOME. For actually trying to improve UX.
Sooooo, would need a little help here please.
Would like to switch from OpenSuse at home to some other Linux distro. (Side note: using OpenSuse at work and at home, would like to discover something new).
Already tried Ubuntu but really didn't like it. Arch Linux was okay though.
Saw some of your pictures of your nice customized desktops and would like to try something like this, but really don't know which distros can do this.
While searching a bit I found three which look/read quite interesting:
Devuan, Alpine Linux and Sabayon Linux.
What would be your thoughts on those, or which distros would you recommend?
Would be grateful for any advice. 😊2
to all linux users out there, what distro are you using? On Friday I decided to hop on the linux train again since then I'm distro hopping ... so far I tried openSuse, fedora, manjaro. Didn't like openSuse (maybe its just KDE) fedora froze after boot couldn't get it to work and manjaro had tearing with free and nonfree drivers ... so next one will be ubuntu, let's see how this goes.7
Worst Linux distro: OpenSuse Leap. Why the fucking network manager don't fucking work on fucking xfce?!?!😤😤😤1
Help a future Linux convert out!
So far over the past year I've gone through Mint, Fedora, Ubuntu and REHL and all have had their issues or just didn't agree with me. Currently I've been using OpenSuSE Leap I haven't had much an issue with... But I'm looking to try out Arch, though I'm not a fan of the whole CLI install. Doing some more research I saw Antergos which is just Arch but more n00b friendly and more elegant to me. Has anyone had experience with Antergos? Is it as it seems? Any pros and cons with Arch Linux based things? Running it in a VM first doesn't do it justice for me.5
Spent the last 2 days installing and reinstalling and trialing Linux distros. Ubuntu or Fedora have always been my go-to distros but I’m actually giving Open Suse Tumbleweed a shot - any reviews?1
finally, I have access to dev server. this would be great if that server wasn't a standard installation of openSuSe.2
Spent a couple of hours setting up an old laptop with opensuse leap and trying to learn the basics of using it so I can simulate a small network (my desktop, a couple of old laptops for specific tasks, and my school laptop) with that laptop as the ‘hub’ Put syncthing on there as a pseudo-cloud system, teamviewer for remote access, and did all required updates for the OS. But literally no idea where to go from there What all should/can I do with this setup useful or otherwise. This is meant to be a learning experiment with a hope for some usefulness from it2
MY OPENSUSE LEAP SUFFERS THE FUCKING BUG OF JAVA INETADDRESS LOCALHOST ADDRESS.
IT'S A FUCKING MACOS BUG
FUCK YOU OPENSUSE
Guys please be quick withe replies - I am taking a shower and will switch from Xubuntu to either Mint 18 or OpenSUSE Tumbleweed. Add your oppinions2
