New to SuSE, where do you find new software?

I'm moving from Ubuntu and after trying Fedora and finding it lacking,
decided to try SuSE. So far, I like it. 

I installed Gnome 3 and it works fine. I've also followed the
instructions to add the missing Yast menu item back so I have access to
the Yast control panel. My question is, other than Yast and
'software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.4'
(http://software.opensuse.org), where should I be looking for software?
Especially stuff that might be "restricted" like codecs, etc. 

Am I missing any options or repositories? And what is Packman and
should I be using that instead of the other two options?

To begin you will probably only need four repos, oss, non-oss, updates
and Packman:


Code:
--------------------
    http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/oss/
  http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/non-oss/
  http://download.opensuse.org/update/11.4/
  http://packman.mirrors.skynet.be/pub/packman/suse/11.4/
--------------------


Packman provides most multimedia support. See Carl's sticky on this,

Hmm checking out that page that I referenced, I see now the recent
updates to Packman have made most of my examples obsolete !  Guess I'll
have to update that guide. < sigh >

OK, I updated the how-to guide: 'openSUSE software installation hints'
(http://tinyurl.com/3pyx6dq) removing the link to a defunct webpin
(replacing it with a Link to the packman packager search engine) and
replacing the 'camorama' example with a 'tea' example.

New Laptop + new SuSE = problems
I've bought a new laptop and am having some trouble. My old one was a Dell Latitude CPX366XT with Suse 8.2. I loved that old machine and everything worked flawlessly without work (even WiFi when 802.11b was big) but it was falling apart and with a maxed out ram of 256 MB I couldn't do much nowadays. Well I bought an Acer Aspire 5050-3785 and installed openSuse.org 10.3 64-bit and some things do not work and for the life of me I cannot fix them. First the sound. It is a Realtek ALC883 and ALSA isn't working. I cannot download the newest version from their web site e...

Help Please: How to force KDE 4 applications to open as a new instance, not new tab?
When a new instance of a running KDE 4 application (kwrite, konqueror, etc.) is run under opensuse 11.4 with KDE4 it seems that the default behaviour is to open a new tab in the running instance. This occurs when the new instance is called from the command line; the start menu; the run dialogue; or a desktop icon, even when called from a separate desktop. In konqueror the menu option <File> <new window> opens a new tab and seems redundant. How can a user force KDE 4 applications to run a new instance in a separate frame / window when another instance of that applicat...

Calendar for Kontact in SuSE 11.3 cannot find new contacts when creating new events.
I upgraded to SuSE 11.3 on Sunday. The calender new event function cannot find any new contacts created after the upgrade. It locates old contacts just fine. Obviously, this is not a major problem, as one can find the new contact in the contact program and copy and paste. Do I have something set wrong, or is this a bug needing to be reported? -- The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge. Daniel J.
