What's new in SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3

Filed under
SUSE

Just under 18 months after the second revamp of SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE) 11, SUSE has released Service Pack (SP) 3, which includes bug fixes, new drivers, updated software and a range of new features.

UEFI Secure Boot

New features in SP3 include support for UEFI Secure Boot. This allows the distribution to boot on standard Windows 8 systems, on which Secure Boot is generally enabled, ensuring that the firmware will launch only trusted operating systems, which now include the SLE SP3 installation media for x86-64 systems. SLE SP3 uses a variant of bootloader shim which has been signed by Microsoft (thus following the same route taken by the latest versions of Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu).
