Making sense out of SUSE's delta releases

Filed under
SUSE

"What's the deal with those 'delta' releases for SUSE 10.1? I can't get them to work." 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.

OpenSuSE released rc3 of their upcoming SuSE Linux 10.1 yesterday right on target as planned and reported on the Roadmap. I thought rc2 was just about gold worthy myself and was anxious to see the changelog for rc3. Well, they disappointed me on a few issues but all in all, they are probably getting closer to that final release.

SUSE

After seeing the specs for the OQO model 01+ tablet palmtop PC, I knew I had to put SUSE 10.0 Linux on it and do a review. OQO currently offers only a Windows XP version. To say the OQO/SUSE Linux combination is a "geek magnet" is to overstate the obvious.

Release Candidate 2 of SuSE Linux 10.1 was released early in the morning of April 22. This release doesn't bring too many new features, but everything is really starting to come together. This release we decided to test the upgrade option and tested the software management system fairly extensively including the non-oss add-on packages. Does it look like OpenSuSE is on-track?

SUSE Linux 10.1 For *YOUR* Desktop

Filed under
SUSE

Quite often, I read articles about whether Linux is ready for the Desktop. I’ll be honest with you, it is. However, it is not a question of whether it is ready for the desktop, but whose desktop is it ready for.

Filed under
SUSE

This is one really, really cool and solid distribution. OK, before I go any further I should point out that SUSE 10.1 (code name: Agama Lizard) isn't actually released yet. I've been kicking the tires of the first SUSE 10.1 "Release Candidate."

While the world holds its breath waiting to see if Oracle is serious about entering the Linux market. Novell and Oracle staff are putting a zipper on their beaks about the matter. Oracle and Novell staff that we talk to just giggle, wink, and say no comment.

SUSE 10.1 RC1 from the Standpoint of a Mandriva/PCLinuxOS User

Filed under
SUSE

After the firing of Mandriva's founder, Gael Duval, and the failure of Mandriva to release appropriate and timely updates, I scrubbed the Mandriva distro from my main home machine and installed PCLinuxOS. I've pretty much settled on PCLinuxOS as my preferred workstation desktop, but I'm still looking for a server OS.

So, I decided to install SUSE on my second hard drive. What follows is my reaction to a SUSE install and configuration, from the standpoint of someone who is an intermediate Linux user, but has no experience with SUSE.

Suse 10.1 RC 1 Report

The beta cycle is history! I'm still sweeping up confetti here. OpenSUSE announced the availability of 10.1 release candidate 1 early this morning. I've actually been downloading the deltas lately and even though they come in fairly slow, it is much nicer downloading 300 mbs rather than 3 gigs. I highly recommend that method. I am in the process of downloading the full x86_64 version as well. It's coming in at a snails pace too, but hopefully I will be able to report on it before rc2 comes out. But back to the topic at hand. How did the release candidate do? Will this phase go as planned or will final have to be delayed? Here is my report.
