I know I should send feedback to S.u.S.E Inc. rather than posting
it to this mailing list. However, I was thinking that these problem
could be something I'm having :))
First of all, I love the way S.u.S.E packaged their Linux with KDE and
so on. I don't think I wanna go back to any other distribution.
Ok, let me talk about the problems, and then I'll say what I like to
1. In the newbie installation (Install from the scratch) --it didn't
install PPP (not to mention suseppp)--- l8r I had to manually install
it. When I reinstalled the whole Linux again, I browsed and found
that PPP was not selected either.
Ok, they may leave that as an optional thing because some people
may not connect via modem. Well, during configuration, YaST does ask
if you want to configure modem---then was SLIP installed by default?
I guess newbie shouldn't have to encounter that since most of the
linux users uses PPP now days.
2. After the installation is complete, system boots up and I get login
prompt. No GUI cause my X server wasn't configured??? When they
have cool stuff like SaX, why this wasn't a automatic thing?? They
could implement XF86Setup ( which would give the autoprobe option)
3. I wish they'd implement a prompt (gui would be nice) which would
ask ---Do you want KDE, FVWM, and so on on boot (so newbie wont have
to type it manually
note: When I click on startx as root, it launches FVWM2 and when I
type startx as user, it launches KDE. If I try to run KDE manually as
root, it generates an error (I can't remember)
4. Oh I would love to see a Undo option. I see a Abort option, but
something (I can't remember specific ) I've done and I clicked on
Abort and kinda messed up the few changes I've made.
Ok, Now there's something I thought could point that out.... once
again, this could be "user error" -->my problem :))
----S.u.S.E must separate German Distribution and English distribution
a. When I loaded the default package during Install from the
scratch---I browsed the selection and found out that it had some
German manual, help files selected besides the English ones... I
guess that's why I saw some German instruction ;p
b. Why there isn't a S.u.S.E Newsgroup?? Almost all the
distribution has newsgroups, but why not S.u.S.E (may be one for
German and one for English)
Note: I know I sound too greedy. Getting the power of Linux, good
look of KDE and ease of installation. But hey it doesn't hurt to wish:)
