Another new computer ( admin posted on March 24th, 2009 )

Got a netbook recently (not for me to use though). HP 2133. Seen in Comet, but £10 less from Dixons online, delivered. (How stupid are they?).

Runs SLED10. Got the updates to work, then promptly lost all wireless. A week later it is fixed taking advice from the online forum of openSuSE. HP were useless – rang them a few times but they kept asking me what happens when you run IE. Very nice people but obviously lived a long way away and did not have a clue what I was talking about. It’s their own OS!!! Told me to ring Novell. Which I did, but politely pointed back to HP.  The fix I found is now in the forums.


Here are the links (partly for my ref.):-

Wireless now working, dodgy hub permitting.
