    Question about free/one editions


    I notice they don't have any 64-bit one edition. Is there an option for someone who wants to use proprietary drivers/software with 64 bit, other than buying the powerpack? Can I download the proprietary stuff after installing the free edition or anything?

    Yes, you can. I assume you're talking about things like DVD support, 3D drivers and other multimedia playback like MP3/WMV/MPG? Those can all be added on afterward for free.

    Like techieMoe says, you can add those things later. The easiest way is probably by using URPMI. You can go here for help to make setting it up easier.

    Let us know how it goes.

    thanks guys, thats what I needed. I love openSUSE, but i'm looking for a distro that also has great KDE integration but with better support for restricted formats. Mandriva and PCLinOS look nice, i'll give 2008.0 free x64 a shot first and see how it goes
