isn't that a little misleading? opensuse did not detect and let you use your modem.

i installed ubuntu 6.10 on a dell last month. the only two modifications i had to make was to add a line to /etc/modules to make it load the wifi device driver on boot, and to run a program to set the modes properly for the x window system (the bios reported an incorrect display size). the latter was only necessary because it had a weird display size (1280x900 or something).

i installed ubuntu 5.10 (and upgraded to 6.10) on a thinkpad earlier this year. i didn't have to do either of the above steps.

of course, i've had the same modem problem on the thinkpad. i haven't tried to use the dell's modem, so i don't know about that.

No, Suse 10.2 had no problem with the hardware on a dell inspiron. 1280x800 is actually default for wide-screen displays, Wifi, bluetooth, firewire, MMC/SD card reader, sound card, graphic card etc. everything auto-detected.
I also installed Suse 10.2 in my desktop, and again had no problem with the hardware. I really hate Ubuntu because of its GNOME centric view. To Quote Linus Torvalds:

" personally just encourage people to switch to KDE.

This "users are idiots, and are confused by functionality" mentality of
Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will
use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long
since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do.

Please, just tell people to use KDE.

Linus"


Let me share here the modem used in Dell Inspiron will not work under ANY distro. Because the manufacturer Connexant only supports Windows and many of my friends unfortunately have Connexant's chip in their internal modems. But the modem is pretty irrelevant to me (I use dsl).

Assalam 0 alaikum n3m3sis!!!

Thanks for you suggestions

I like most kde then gnome .So I am using Kbuntu from one and half year on my pc and happy with it.
I also uses Opensuse on my system.It is also very impressive.

But one major porblem which I feel with opensuse is Its Yast Online repositired does not work very well.And most of the time I am unable to get packages from repositries.

But Kubuntu rocks in this step. I have configured lot of repositreis in it and never face any problem to install any software through apt-get command.


Thanks
Allah Hafiz
