I want to install a minimal openSUSE system on a couple of spare computers, but I'd really like the high res console that you get in the desktop installations of openSUSE with the background. I don't absolutely need it, but it's the one thing that makes me choose openSUSE over other distro's and I don't want to give it up without a fight.
Can OpenSUSE work on a laptop with only a 500 MHz processor and 256 MB of RAM? A minimal Ubuntu with GNOME installation runs at a reasonable speed on such an ancient computer even though the full installation is too heavy. (The process involves starting off with a command line only installation and adding just the necessary packages.)
I have installed squeeze 6.0.0 as a base install from: Network install from a minimal CD.
Debian -- Network install from a minimal CD
i do see a lot of information on the various #apt commands , yet is is all garble goop as far as trying to make sense of where to begin at to install commands/programs.
I'm Having this little Problem when trying to do an install from the Minimal CD, No matter which Mirror i pick, nothing downloads.
What's worse is that I tried to install the Minimal CD in a VM and everything downloaded accordingly but the VM wouldn't boot but that's another problem, now that I'm using it in a real System nothing downloads, What could be the problem?.
I have some problems, with a new samba configuration.
I want to setup a SAMBA PDC with ldap authentification, following an HOWTO found on the web.
I used this howto with success on OPENSUSE 10.1 with a X86 processor and I have used it a lot of time (windows 2000 clients).
Now I use OPENSUSE 11.3.
And I test this new configuration with two new PC running X64 processor running linux.
