SuSe Linux Wifi card

  1. I'm going to be getting a new laptop soon and i'm going to put Suse 10 on it. I was wondering how good the support for wifi cards is with SuSe.

    I plan on using the Auditor and some other tools like AirSnort, AirCrack, etc so I would like good support for those programs also.

    I was thinking about buying this bundle at Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16833127150) and I was wondering if Linux/Suse/Auditor would work good with that wifi card.


    thanks,

    You have to find out what chip that wireless card uses. And then check individually whether SuSE supports it and whether all your script kiddie tools support it.

    Most cards that don't have native Linux drivers might work with NdisWrapper.

    You'd have to check like Nodsu says, but yesterday there was an article on digg.com about how OpenSuSe supports more hardware than WindowsXP does.
