Hardware Configuration

Configure the graphics card and, if desired, other hardware devices, such as the printer and the sound card. Just click a component to start its configuration. For the most part, YaST then detects and configures the devices automatically.

Configuring the System Components

You may skip any peripheral devices and configure them later. However, you should configure the graphics card right away. Although the display settings as autoconfigured by YaST should be generally acceptable, most users have very strong preferences as far as resolution, color depth, and other graphics features are concerned. To change these settings, select X Configuration. The configuration is explained in Section “Graphics Card and Monitor (SaX2)”. When finished, click Finish Installation.

After YaST has written the configuration data, you can finish the installation of the SuSE Linux with Finish in the final dialog.
