Finally, Linux at work!!!

Post by dishawjp » Sat Oct 15, 2005 11:16 am

Hi All!

After months of getting jerked around, I finally have Linux installed on my computer at work. For now I'm running OpenSUSE 10, dual booting with Win2K. The install was pretty straightforward, but I do have a questions about updating this distro.

I went to the yast thing and asked it to do an online update, but it wanted me to put my CD's in. I didn't see what good the CD's would do since I'd just finished installing from them. I looked for a "man yast" and a "man you" hoping to get some info on how to properly configure these to get proper updates. I am online and right now posting from Firefox, so that's not the issue.

Any pointers?

TIA,

Jim

OK, I mananged to sort this out. I had to make a change to "you" telling to to go online instead of the CD's. Just a radio button in the GUI.

Should have been obvious :oops:
