    just recently decided to try the system …. was always a loyal microsoft type …. but this is nice …. it seems a lot like the Mac O/S …. wondering though … is it possible to play avi or divx …. also wondering …. viruses …. need I worry about an anti virus with OpenSuSe 11.1 ?

    later … love’n the system

      No, you don’t need to worry about virus. It’s not only possible to play avi and divx, but any other video you might want to play! I personally recommend smplayer (in the ‘packman’ repo). It plays ANYTHING, even broken files, incomplete files, anything…

      To play the multi-media formats, you need to add some community repositories, and packages to get the codecs openSUSE cannot distribute. Best to google, or ask in the forum about getting multi-media going.

    Hmz, now I am kind of curious about the implementation of the openFate feature and how it’s gonna work, now and in the future. I wonder though there are currently no facilities for it in standard model openSuSE 11.1 so it will be added by upgrade and worked out and improved in later releases?
