    HUGE problem with installation


    Hey guyz,

    I am having one big problem with installing SUSE Linux ... that is : I have a rather small hard disk but on the other hand I want to enjoy the packages that come with the CDs ... I need graphix apps, application server, java IDE, ... etc...

    The main problem is that there are like two thousand packages on the CD and I don't know which to install and which to miss... I need some sort of criterion to know the not useful ones (to me...) yet without losing any nice packages....

    Another quick question... Is C++ different on Linux??

    Thanks alot.

    How big is your hard drive? If you do a basic SuSE install with KDE, that shouldn't take up too much space. Then, install packages with Yast on an as needed basis.

    Yes. Again, how big is your drive?

    Of course, do what you think is best, but if it were me with forty gig, I'd do a complete SuSE install, (installing everything). It will take you a lot of time to fill up all the drive you'll have left over. When you finally do, just buy a USB external drive.
