    problem with Linux Suse 11


    Hello

    Yesterday I bought new personal computer Hp.
    This computer has installed Linux Suse 11.

    Because I use Linux first time I have no ideas how to do anything.

    Please tell me, how can I install virtualbox,?Maybe tutorial with pictures.

    And how can I look which OS do I have installed is it 32bit or 64??

    And if maybe i want to switch back to Windows, how can I go to BIOS to install Windows??

    Have a nice day!

    Hi and Welcome !

    Exactly which version of OpenSUSE do you have? OpenSUSE 11 was release in 2008 and is no longer supported. You will face a lot problems during Package Installation.

    And if maybe i want to switch back to Windows, how can I go to BIOS to install Windows??
    Press Esc key after switching on computer to enter in BIOS settings. You have to create space for Windows OS before starting its installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    When I open System Monitor I find this:
    SUSE LINUX
    Release 11
    Kernel Linux 2.6.32.29-0.3-pae
    GNOME 2.28.2

    Are you using Opensuse or Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop? You can find out by opening a terminal and entering:

    cat /etc/issue

    or cat /etc/release

    and check the output. If it is version 11.0 which is no longer supported, you will not be able to install VirtualBox or other software in the normal way, from repositories.

    Here is a link to info on downloading and isntalling VirtualBox from the Sun web site to Opensuse, for version 11.1.
