Chris:

Suse-linux-e is mainly a high-level SuSE list, covering issues relating to
installation problems, operating system problems, installing commonly used
software and dealing with problems related thereto, etc. For actual nuts
and bolts programming help, you should join the suse-programming-e mailing
list.
