Well, first of all, all I can say WOOOOOT :flowers: I got Live OpenSuse running!!
However, as with all software comes some questions.

1. Since live CDs operate on memory, does that mean the longer I use the OS the slower it gets? My computer is 1GB RAM, how long will it last?
2. Is it normal for the mouse to suddenly go wonky?
3. Is there a good software that be used to type Chinese? That's probably the only problem I have, or I could live off the live CD forever :thumbsup:
4. I installed WINE from YaST, and it installed successfully. Where would I find it?

Thanks!

1 - Memory management in Linux is exceptional. The LiveCD should run forever (theoretically)
until you shut it down. Unless you open every program you can and just consume all memory and cpu cycles.

2 - Depends on your definition of "wonky"

3 - http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/Chinese-HOWTO.html

4 - wine is command line. man wine
for more info. Or right click on the exe and choose "open with", select wine.

Hope that helps.

1. Ah. Linux really is much faster than Windows, everything loads right away :thumbsup:
2. I can try to move the mouse in one direction but then it suddenly moves to another area and continues to move. Or I click something on one side of the screen and suddenly the mouse moves to the other side. Other than that, it's generally much harder to scroll around. I use a touchpad, if that's any difference. Do I need extra drivers or anything?
3. Thanks, exactly what I needed. I originally looked on that site too but I guess I got an abridged version.
4. Thanks :flowers: But is there no way to the command manually?

I have zero knowledge of Opensuse except that it exists. That being said
I would have a look in Yast for mouse or touchpad settings. I believe there is
something that needs to be installed for touchpad. (i could be wrong).

wine-doors is the GUI for wine:

Again, I don't know how it works in opensuse.

Here is the Suse forum at LQ. Have a search there for Suse specific stuff.
