I would suggest that you go and check: http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfect-desktop-opensuse-11.1-gnome

 

If you read the whole article, you will notice that he install 'multiples' of different products (e.g. multiple CD/DVD burners, MP3 players, etc).  Just choose the component that works for you and follow the instructions for the article.

 

I have tried the article on an R61, a T60p, and an X300 with no issues.   

 

Good luck.

Hey guys, i'm back from my search for my linux distro. I have end my search on Ubuntu 9.04. It runs superbly, with no much flaw. And with far more satisfaction than any Windows OS could give me. Ubuntu simply rocks...

Every media now runs fine, and i have changed the themes, etc.. of my Ubuntu... Its completely my own OS now.... Iam so happy... and i'm now eagerly waiting for the Ubuntu 9.10 to be out.

Re: I'm trying Open SUSE..

2016-08-14, 14:18 PM

I recently purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad P70.  

I pulled the Open SuSE 13.2 ISO from the SuSE website and put it on a USB. 

Changing the boot sequence I booted from the USB and started the install.  

Install pulls up the License agreement, I hit enter and get the following message on the screen. 

 

Intel Ethernet Controller Bus Id:  0000:00:1f.6

Kernel Device (etho, wlan0) is not present

Missing firmware.

See dmesg output for details

 

On the surface it appears I'm missing a driver.   If I try to ADD a device a panel/dialog comes up asking for lan configuration information.  It also wants to know if I should pull from a USB, Network etc...  I believe it is asking or prompting me for the driver.   Can someone confirm this?  

 

If it is, can the driver be placed on the same USB stick as the ISO?  Is the dialog asking me for the path name of the driver?   Or do I need a second stick and place that in a second USB port?
