Wanted better operating system then linux suse on my msi u90!!

Just bought the thing and I am new to linux. From what I understand most people change the operating system because the hardware is not fully supported by suse version. HELP!!! What do I do? Can I change it to windows XP or another more friendly version of linux for this computer?

Hi
Use the disk management utility in Windows or one better would be Partition Magic 8 (it is older and maybe you can find it on a torrent site or something) use half the disk for Windows and leave the other half open for Linux. With Linux you will need 2 partitions. The first will be for the OS and the second is a swap partition, usually twice the size of your physical RAM. 
Install Windows first, as you will need to use the boot manager from Linux to select the OS. Then install Linux. Make sure you select the main partition to install the boot manager on.There is either GRUB or LILO. LILO is the older one, and it fairly straight forward but GRUB is better.

I would recommend the UBUNTU distribution of Linux. It is based on I believe either Debian or SUSE but there is very good driver support included and it is very user friendly.
You can email them from their web page and they will even mail you the discs free of charge.

Cheers

    It is possible that there is driver support for the camera for Ubuntu. The camera is almost guaranteed to work with XP as most hardware is made to support Windows. You could install both operating systems and have a dual boot machine. There are a lot of people that do that. I personally have a PC running XP and OS X86 10.5.5. You just have to have 2 partitions available and make sure you install Windows first.

    Hope this helps.

Yes you can change to any operating systems at any time. You can change to linux's earlier versions or later versions, or you can change to windows wp/vista/me/98/95. When you buy a computer it comes with an operating system, However you can change it to whichever operating system you want. all you will need to do is purchase whatever operating system you want, it will come with installation disks, pop one in restart your computer and it will walk you threw installing it. ( I have done this with XP & Vista, I am assuming Linux is the same.)

If you have installed a drive from another system, it probably has settings applicable to the system from which it was removed. The original system could well have had settings for a different audio chip and video resolution. You need to look at the device drivers for audio and video and make the changes needed so they apply to the laptop you have.

I have bought my son a HP 2133 with suse linux it is asking for a user name and password but I don't have one I have tried the above but it won't let me do it


The best thing would be to check with the people you bought it from. This way you can avoid unintended problems if you have to try the following...

for OpenSUSE/SUSE root password recovery...

http://www.susegeek.com/general/how-to-resetrecover-the-root-password-in-opensuse/

Once you have the root password, you can add/change any login on the system. I of course do not advise this unless you have some Linux experience.

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

I have presario v3070tu wan't audio and wifi driver for suse linux...from where to download?


Hello there
I understand that you need Linux drivers for your Notebook Compaq Presario v3070tu.

I am sorry to that HP do not have Linux drivers for your product.

For more information please click here.


This is what HP gave in that link
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Don't see your operating system?
If your operating system is not listed, HP does not currently have software or driver downloads available for your product for that operating system, or they are not available in the language you have chosen. To look for a driver in another language, change the software/driver language by clicking the "Change your software/driver language:" link on this page to see what drivers are available for your operating system.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you

Good bye and Take care

Flash player 9 on suse 10.1


NOTE: Since many proprietary video codecs, flash player etc.. are not available for 64-bit platforms, it is difficult to configure 64-bit machines for a complete multimedia experience. Hence it is advised that users new to linux use the 32-bit version of SUSE (32-bit SUSE works fine on 64-bit AMD machines)

Way to check would be open a terminal
type uname -a

If you use 32-bit Follow this page - http://tweakhound.com/linux/suse/101/installing_1.htm
I use ubuntu and to be able to compile flash you need dependencies to be met.
If you need more help, ask.
