The openSUSE community are helpful people. We would like to be here for you. This is a list of various ways to contact other openSUSE members, ask the questions, discuss openSUSE and Linux.
openSUSE News is a news portal that provides the latest openSUSE news. Important announcements are also sent to the opensuse-announce mailing list but this site has a broader scope: to cover all events in the openSUSE universe. Anyone can comment on news articles, but to contribute news stories, you must request an account first.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a great way to connect with openSUSE community members in real time chat and for support. IRC uses popular client software, such as Konversation, Kvirc, X-Chat or instant messenger clients that support the IRC protocol like Pidgin. All are included in openSUSE. Although chatting occurs in a group forum, you can also privately chat with online members.
The main support channel is #opensuse on irc.opensuse.org. To start chatting, simply click on the #opensuse link! To see a complete list of all IRC channels, and support channels in other languages, head over to our IRC list. If you are a new to IRC take a look at the IRC for the newbies.
Forums are a way to actively interact with a community. You can discuss issues with other community members, ask questions, and share experiences. You can access forums easily via your web browser.
The official openSUSE forums are at forums.opensuse.org and contain the combined knowledge and expertise of the community of previously independent forums which have merged into the openSUSE project.
