did you first install the default distro, update it and then go on? or select all in yast and go on?
During the install, I clicked on a lot of things that weren't automatically
selected to be installed, mainly because I wanted to play with as
many things as possible. I left out stuff I knew I wouldn't need
like a lot of the laptop and portable computing groups of packages,
but basically clicked on all the other choices it gave me at install
time, so I installed a lot more than the default, but not more than
was on the DVD.
well... I guessed that.
I once tryed to install "all" (this was an official SuSE option, at that time :-). It went well, but was SuSE pre-selected.
openSUSE choose to have a really great subset of all the available opensource products. This is really a lot, and many of these products are completely unable to work with other opensource products.
So the only reasonable way (and I learned this the hard way, beleive me :-) is to begin softly...
I go as far as installing only the minimal console install (on unknown or new computer), because I had too often graphical video problems.
nowaday, installing kde (or gnome, by the way), default install, is the only way to know if all on the computer installs well. Only after that (and after upgrading this), and if you are to use your install for a long time, you can _uninstall_ part of unusefull stuff.
To _add_ things, one must be really carefull, install them one after the other...
and it's for that that the slowness (very ancient) of yast software install is a pain :-(
so when dependency problem come, one can solve them.
So, go back to the install, (new install) and do like I said, you will be glad of it.
(probably 200 installs or more in ten years :-)
