openSUSE 10.2 bites the dust

I just said goodbye to my old install of PCLinuxOS and installed openSUSE 10.2 an hour ago and now I’m ready to throw it away. Reason? No default support for PPPoE. I spent almost an hour trying to figure out how to get my ADSL connection working, without any luck whatsoever. When I booted back into Windows and checked online, I found out that I needed to download and separately install an RPM to get PPPoE working. Not what I would expect from what is supposed to be a corporate standard distribution. Next in the line of fire: Mandriva 2007

  1. I am sure you must have missed something. I already have deployed openSuSe on more than 5 machines, two of which were on ADSL, and I didn’t had to download any rpm for them. PPPOE was working out of the box.
