I often think I’m jinxed, because everything I do – which should be easy, and is for other people – becomes a huge headache. It’s Murphy’s Law that if it can go wrong, it will, especially when I’m involved.
Updating to openSUSE 10.1 was NOT a breeze. The set of discs that I bought from the newsagent were faulty. Just my luck. Well, it wasn’t all of them, just the first one, but still it meant I couldn’t do the upgrade. G took pity on me (translated… that means that he thought his life would be better if he took action) and he was kind enough to download the first disc. It took a while, but it worked. That made us both happy.
Now, I’m running the latest version of just about all the linux software that I use. Cool!
