    Complete N00B trying to setup hardware in SuSE 9.0

    OK. I admit it. I am floundering in Linux. But that's what I like - there's SO much to learn!

    I setup my homebuilt PC with SuSE 9.0 using the FTP boot ISO and accessing the mirror of a mirror I copied to my HDD on a windows box on the LAN. I thought everything went smoothly, but the box runs as slowly as a 486 running windoze XP!

    I found plugger and found a number of items I believe are not installed (ie: No drivers.) I figured out how to do a screenshot and how to setup and use GIMP, and I ftp'd the .jpg to this location: http://home.comcast.net/pmarion/hardware.jpg

    :-[ So, how do I install the drivers and or configure them? :-[ (The Radeon display adapter says it is installed but not configured, for example.)
    Note: The Motherboard is an Intel SE440BX2.

    Thanks in advance.

    Or should this be posted in Hardware? (If so and a moderator wants to move it, please accept my apology for misposting in the 1st place!)

    1. Link you posted shows nothing (some url error)
    2. I think it's pretty much depends on the driver......they should be configured according to vendor instructions (at least in my experience with NIC drivers)
    3. as to the display driver - if it has been installed but not configured I guess you can do the post configuration usinf Control Center, or Yast2 on Suse.

    hello,
    i don't care the much where a post goes, anywho - grab off the drivers from ATI and read the docs for installing them. that should cover you

    i can not access the page you posted...

    Sorry - I typoed the URL. :-[

    It makes it through post fine and gets into KDE - but it is v e r y s l o w... and the mb bridges are shown with no drivers, as is the CPU, memory, and others. That's what the jpg shows.
