    New To Forum And Linux


    A hearty hello to you all,
    my name is Brad and i am a newby to Linux and the way it operates. I have a working version of openSuse 11.2 on my laptop to which i am very happy that it is now Microsoft and Windows FREE. I have found it hard, how to work out and how to install software onto my system as i would like to able to use my IPOD and IPHONE through Linux and from research i have found that if i download and install Wine i should be able to run iTunes so question is if possible would someone be able to help me with the process for a successful installation.

    Many Thanks
    Brad

    Wine should be in the SUSE repositories. I'm not sure what it uses for a package manager, but you should be able to install it from there. I had SUSE installed once upon a time, but I didn't like it enough to stay with it, and ended up with Debian, which is very different. Someone with SUSE experience should be along sooner or later, though.

    Edit: a quick Google search shows the GUI package manager to be YaST. Open that and it should install wine for you.

    Hello and Welcome.
    Please do start a new thread with your problem, if you haven't already. Threads in the coffee lounge don't add to your total post count and some people who might be able to help you may not even venture here either.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
