I am currently developing to collect data for an electric motorcycle. I saw openSUSE as being a power house as it is 64 bit.
I have a PICAN ,a simple hardware device that goes on top of the PI.
On raspbian I had to add these lines to the config.txt file. I do not know what they do but it worked fine and it allowed me to interface with the hardware using the ip link command.
Now is there a similar way to set up the hardware on opensuse and how so. I am having a hard time understanding the resources needed to perform the task.
