openSuse 10.2 never made the internet connection during installation for
me. I also had problems with printing, I have an old HP 720c. The update
didn't work well on 10.2 either.
I have now dowloaded 10.3 and they seem to have fixed these problems. I
tried to download the BitTorrent and after days still only had 49%. During
that time I downloaded the CD via HTTP and got it no problems. I have
10.3on my laptop and it is working well.
I then stopped the BitTorrent and downloaded the DVD via HTTP and got it in
about 3 or 4 hours. I haven't checked it yet but it seems complete.
10.3looks like a vast improvement over

It is better to travel well than to arrive.
