http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, I've just installed openSUSE 11.2 64-bit KDE4 on my brand new Asus UL30A-QX130V laptop. It comes with an Intel 5100 wi-fi card. The wireless works out of the box, the radio switch Fn-F2 works, that is it turns the radio ON and OFF but the radio light always stays ON. Just wondering if there's any way to turn it ON/OFF with the radio? The laptop also comes with Bluetooth and is activated by the same radio key. Does the Bluetooth stay ON all the time or it turns ON/OFF with the wi-fi radio? Apart from this nuisance, everything seems to work. I've downloaded a Live CD ISO, made a bootable USB stick with it and installed openSUSE in about 3-5 minutes! USB is so much faster than CD/DVD. And now I have a perfect home network all running Linux: Desktop + Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop + Asus UL30A-QX130V laptop (all running 100% Linux) D-Link DVA-G3670B wireless VoIP modem/router with printer server (I'm sure it runs on embedded Linux) Seagate BlackArmor NAS 110 (runs Linux) PS. I moved to a new apartment and I was waiting for a week for my naked ADSL connection. I got that new Asus laptop which came with Windows 7 Premium. So I had a long long week to have a look at the new "improved" windows. OMG! The whole week seemed like a bad never ending hangover with nausea, stomach cramps and diarrhea. Who on earth would use that cr*pware and even pay money for it? Yak. It literally takes 20 click to do anything in Win7. How's that an improvement? After I've installed the new openSUSE, it's like feeling alive again. (just had to take it off my shoulders) (Distributions)
