Filed under
SUSE

With a cold on one side and a complete Internet connection meltdown on the other, I've been having a heck of a time keeping up with my email. Still, before my ISP, Bell South, hosed my DSL connection and my cold medicine knocked me out, I got a message asking: "What's the deal with those 'delta' releases for SUSE 10.1?

A "delta" to a program, in and of itself, is no good to man or beast. It's simply the code of the changes between one version of a program and another. To make use of a SUSE 10.1 delta, you first have to have a copy of the original code.
