    Bye bye Debian

    I just bought and installed SuSE 8 and I must say I'm very impressed! The installer did a great job and the install was just soo unbelievably easy, and all my hardware was detected without any problems. The default KDE 3 setup was also decent. Now I have tons of software to play with...

    Well, there are a couple of things I need to figure out, since Debian has spoiled me so badly that I've forgot some basic things.

    1) How to compile a kernel the "traditional" way (Debian's kernel-package has spoiled me)

    2) How to install software from the SuSE CD's (ok, YaST is nice and all, but apt-get was still easier - no need to run some confusing gui config apps)

    3) How to get to internet from cli (in Debian it was just pon and poff, now how do I get some nice scripts in SuSE so I don't have to use gui apps for connecting?)

    Anyway, so far NGene likes SuSE ;D

    About the only thing I can help with is internet from the CLI. If you mean web browsers then check out links (real nice) and lynx (okay).

    Umm, no, I mean how do I get connected at all. I'm on a dial-up connection so I'm not connected to internet all the time. Debian has this nice PPP config app that lets me configure the connection, and then I can just simply use pon and poff commands for connecting and disconnecting. No need for gui apps.

    However, I haven't figured out if there's something similar in SuSE. Now I use kppp for connecting to internet, and although it works, I don't like it.

    All your problems are belong to SuSe. Make your time. Go back to Debian, for great justice.

    Seriously, I suggest WvDial.

    Compiling kernel:
    Code:
    make dep clean
    make bzimage
    make modules modules_install
    cd arch/<your-architecture-here>/boot
    From there, copy bzImage to where ever you want it to be.

    NGene if we all chip in to pay for a cable connection to your place, will you go back to using a REAL distro?

    I'll lay down the first 100$
