SUSE Linux 10.1 now powers my AMD 64

by @ 6:40 am. Filed under General SUSE

I spent the evening installing SUSE 10.1 on my AMD 64-bit machine. I found many installation sources. However, like half of them would not work. I wonder what I am doing wrong that makes them not work. For example: – won’t work. – won’t work. – won’t work.

Any clues would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone else ever feel like smashing someone in the eye if they go 5 mph under the speed limit? Man, tell you what.

No wonder I am Hitler.

    I run SUSE 10.1 x86_64 as well.
    I use the “Smart package manager”:
    With smart there’s no problem with the installation sources listed above. (Didn’t try the GNOME source)

    I’m running SUSE 10.1 with the 32 bit and the KDE updates are working fine, after getting the YAST updates through SMART. However, I am unable to get any GNOME updates, using the YAST source for GNOME updates, as well. In fact, I’ve found nothing for getting GNOME updates. I’d like to see some answers, as well.

    I’m using smart from
    All the sources and mirrors are ready to use 😉
    64bit suse with kde runs like a charm. Dont forget to install the 32bit mplayer with codecs for wmv support.

    Great suggestions. 🙂 I will have to try that out. I did try smart last night. Not from guru, though. When I put in all the repositories, everything was looking good. It downloaded about 230 Mb worth of upgrades. However, there were 4 packages which were not available for download. I think this foobarred something, because none of the packages that I did download were installed. Then, when I tried to do it all over again, it said there were no updates available, and I was still on all the old versions of everything.

    Now THAT is annoying. I love SUSE. However, I hate it when I can’t quite make something new work correctly. I’ll try the guru version of smart, and then we’ll see what happens.

    Thanks for the tip, and thanks for stopping by.
