View Full Version : .RPM Compatibility Across Builds?

Greetings and good afternoon, community.

Supposing I do get Fedora 9 working on my laptop (http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=192984), I'm still left in that tricky Linux limbo where all I have are drivers compiled for SuSE Enterprise Desktop 10, and not FC9. Are those .RPM files a good starting point for getting things like the touchpad or integrated Wireless NIC up and running or should I resort to more 'unconventional' fare?

Thanks again, and always.

Which driver? Be a thousand times more *specific* ;)

Touché, brebs.

The ISO that HP has up on their support site has two main directories, so here's a listing of the contents of each.

So if all that ^^^ was for SuSE Desktop Enterprise 10, will it be useful in Fedora Core 9, and better than that, how would I go about making use of the DVD outside of X, from a bash prompt?

The ISO that HP has up on their support site
Which is what & where exactly?

Um... right.

So the backstory goes that I order this new shiny HP 2133 Mini-Note and it comes with SuSE Linux 10 on it and a 120GiB 5400rpm HDD. Looking forward to the challenge, I upgraded the RAM to 2GB and the HDD to a brand new and faster Seagate Momentus 200GiB. Installed Windows Vista Home Premium first, as it likes to meddle with the MBR and GRUB can coexist quite well with it in place before Linux is loaded.

The only problem is that HP doesn't ship out SuSE 10 on a disc. And the most you can get from them is an ISO from their support page (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3687085&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3687084&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=2020), (hope the link works) which has the listed files on it.

So now I have a laptop with a blank area for a Linux partition, and I'm trying to decide which flavor I should use. Tried Ubuntu 8.04, but the ISO I got from the site wasn't bootable and I didn't have a LiveCD to run first, or something. Downloaded Fedora 9 in all its distributable goodness, burned it to a DVD and installed. Had problems with the graphical part of it, and still can't get X to start correctly. Still, I have root access and the installation was successful, or so it told me.

Imagining an ideal world where FC9 works, I'm wondering if the drivers that were compiled for SuSE 10 will work on other distributions of Linux or if I'll need to track them down elsewhere. To complicate things I've got about 20 years of experience on different operating systems but only about a broken week of use in Linux across all distributions. Figured that installing from scratch on a system I can use every day would be a good way to learn.

HAVE:
Fedora Core 9 running in command line only
Root level access
Laptop with a mediocre Via processor that can't run Vista very well at all
Drivers for SuSE 10 if the laptop were still in SuSE

WANT:
A working GUI in some form of Linux so I can become better acquainted with file management, Linux structure, Command interface, etc.

Cheers, brebs. If I can assist with anything more specific, feel free to ask.

Personally, I would try opensuse 11 (http://www.opensuse.org/) first, for an easy life. "SuSE" is the hint ;)

The huge problem with Linux is that all that Windows knowledge is not very useful - all the commands are different :(

Google is your friend (http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&as_q=hp+2133+linux+xorg&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&num=30&lr=lang_en&as_filetype=&ft=i&as_sitesearch=&as_qdr=all&as_rights=&as_occt=any&cr=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&safe=off) regarding getting xorg working ;) The good news is, you will not be the only person on this planet trying to get that laptop working in Linux. People will have got it working, and documented how they did it.

Edit: To answer the original question, of rpm compatibility across builds/distros, the answer is a resounding "maybe". Depends on the contents. If executable, it's doubtful - recompile using the .src.rpm file - see howto (http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/).
