Suse 10 -- The adventure begins !!
November 04, 2005
I got a chance to have a taste of the Suse 10 OSS (or OpenSUSE as it is better known). The looks of this OS really impressed me (this was my third linux distro after Fedora Core 4 and Knoppix Live CD).
The installation was rather painless except for the patience needed to sit and watch while all the packages are installed :-P. I installed Suse 10 as a guest OS with VMware 5 and Win XP SP2 as the host OS. The best place to get all the 5 isos is :
On googling i came across this site..it has nice step by step descriptions to install all the plugins. However i needed only the MP3 support (and leave the rest to my host OS). So skipping the Thunderbird, Java i came to the W32Codec-all. So eagerly i finished updating with Yast…oops !! again amaroK didn’t play the Mp3 files…the same problem.
After installing some more packages from packman (mad etc..) and digging more into the google search i finally came across
I guess this version of xine might be a older one but the libxine1 that comes when searching for packages in Yast comes around to 25MB (thats quite a big size for a dial-up user).*Get the openSUSE buttons [here](http://dev-loki.blogspot.com/2005/09/opensuse-web-buttons.html)*
