Hi,

If your Wireless card is not detected you can use the windows driver that was shipped with your Wireless card, to do this
you will need to use: ndiswrapper

Hi,

Yes, I belive you can run YAST via console if you are in a root shell just type:

yast

Linux historically tends to be console/command line based.

vi (vim) is very powerful and an excellent editor, but it takes some time to learn.

emacs is also a superb editing environment.

Both include colour syntax highlighting. You will probably have both of the above already installed on your system (or indeed any other Linux system that you use), but as I said they are not particularly user friendly to a newcomer to Linux.


However you may wish to look at some at the more php orientated dev IDEs. I can recommend the devphp:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/devphp/     (GPL....so 'free'! and probably what you want to start with.)

If you decide to start 'commercial development' where time=money/2+learning time, then you may wish to look at the IDEs detailed here:

http://www.linuxdocs.org/HOWTOs/PHP-HOWTO-9.html

HTH:)

> how to sort my net work card out

"lspci" will show your PI devices - look out for LAN/WLAN/WIRELESS

> where to find

yast2 --> Network Devices --> Network Card

select your WLAN card and cofigure TCPIP and encryption settings on the following 2 pages

DonConsolio is referring to the fact you need a command prompt, then provide us with the output from typing the following (or login via ssh):

lspci

This will give the experts details of some of the hardware on your system. It would also be useful if you can provide the output from:

dmesg

and

lsmod

This will at least tell us whether the card is being recognised by the system.

I got a fair way through the process using these instructions:
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/Suse_Professional_9.2.

There's a link to a page where you can download the relevant Windows drivers for your card, and it tells you what to do with them. I had no problems installing and configuring on SuSE 10.1, but I still haven't quite managed to get it working. You may have better luck with your card :-)
