I decided to test out the latest KDE version of Opensuse and like other reviews I have written I gave myself the same five tasks to see how easy or difficuilt that would be.
1. Configure sources and update.
Since installing from live media there is usually updates available after installing , depending on time between release and the time you install there could be quite a few to install so choosing the closest server is recommended.
The repos can be changed in YAST , the control centre for Opensuse , Look for Software repositories.
3. Automount Partitions Using The Fstab File
This process is the same as other distros, kdesu kwrite /etc/fstab, create the entries from the uuid numbers for each partitions from the output of sudo blkid and create the mountpoints for each partition , the run sudo mount -a to make sure there are no errors
Without much experience with KDE and Opensuse it is hard to write a proper conclusion. However from what I experienced whilst my short time using it to write this article , it’s not so much better/worse then other distros/desktop just different. I would really need sometime to sit down and learn how to use this release effectively and efficiently. So if starting out with linux or you wish to try something different to other desktops Opensuse and Kde is worth a look even if its not my cup of tea.
