Suse Linux 10.0 to hit stores in early October

Filed under
SUSE

Novell on Wednesday announced its Suse Linux 10.0 operating system will be generally available early next month in retail or online stores. The new software emphasizes ease of use and is aimed at both developers and home users, according to the company.

Suse Linux 10.0 is the first fruit of the openSuse project, a community program backed by Novell and designed to evangelize its distribution of Linux. Novell unveiled its openSuse project at the LinuxWorld show in San Francisco last month when the company released the first public beta of Suse Linux 10.0. Suse Linux was previously known as Suse Linux Professional.

The new operating system incorporates feedback from developers garnered since the first public beta was released on Aug. 9. A first version of the build server version of openSuse is due to appear early next year, according to a roadmap on the project's Web site (www.opensuse.org). Novell plans to begin regularly releasing alpha snapshots -- first looks at very early versions -- of Suse Linux 10.1 from Sept. 28, the roadmap states.

Nouveau On Oibaf PPA Is Back To Running Well

Upstream Nouveau was unaware of this issue that was affecting my entire assortment of NVIDIA GeForce hardware so it was then quickly assumed to be an issue with the Oibaf PPA that constantly is packaging the latest open-source Linux GPU drivers. On top of mainline Mesa Git, recently there's been the the Gallium3D Direct3D 9 patches (Gallium-Nine). While none of my testing was relying upon the Gallium-Nine D3D9 support, it was wreaking havoc on the system anyhow. As of earlier today some patches were backed out of the Oibaf PPA and since getting back closer to Mesa mainline the Nouveau problems are a matter of the past. With that said, now I'm in the process of running some Nouveau Steam/Source Engine Linux gaming tests similar to today's 20-Way Radeon Comparison With Open-Source Graphics For Steam On Linux Gaming.

Kano's Alejandro Simon: If This, Then Do That

The OS has been available since February. It is open source. We tried to release a new version of it every two or three weeks. Anybody who runs Rasperry Pi can use it. So we already have users. They share content and discuss features and exchange idea on our forums. So far, we have sold 18,000 kits since last year, through the Kickstarter campaign via preorder. We are now in production and have most of the different pieces in place. We will start shipping by the beginning of September, hopefully. We do the materials and the hardware and the components and the packages ourselves. Finally, it is all coming together. Read more
