Re: [opensuse] Open SuSE 13.1 on Dell 4400

seems to be useless whats more to try to get wireless working I seem to
need hplip-hpiJs and Java-1_7_0-openjdk.

attempts to install from the dvd do not work even with a clean install.
Now I read this one core processor may not work at all because of this
systemd.

Is there a way to correct these flaws other than installing 11.4 which
works on most all of the rest of my computers.

Are you referring to a Dell Dimension 4400 Tower PC? If so those are old, and
would likely have a Pentium 4 so it should work fine.

WiFi will not require hplip or openJDK and should only require you to install
the necessary drivers for your WiFi hardware. If you do not have Atheros,
which it sounds like you do not then they more than likely will not be
available from the Installation DVD.

In my experiences with Dell they typically utilize Broadcom which has closed
source drivers. although I have not really seen any Dell tower PCs that
include integrated WiFi though.

What is the actual computer model and what is the actual hardware you are
using?

If you can boot from a Live CD or Live USB run the: `lspci && lsusb && cat
/proc/cpuinfo` utilities to collect all your hardware info.

My ASUS X200CA-HCL12050 notebook (which works great with GNU/Linux and are
available for around $279.00) for example provides the following:
