Look at SUSE Linux 10.1 community distribution


May 22, 2006 4:16 pm





A comprehensive review at Mad gives high marks to SUSE Linux 10.1, the newest version of our community distribution aimed at the new Linux user and Linux enthusiast markets. It previews technology that will make its way into our upcoming enterprise offerings. The review goes into a lot of technical detail on the distro, and touches on all the key new innovations, from the Beagle search to the Xgl graphics to new plug-and-play features. The reviewer makes a pretty interesting confession: “At no point in my career, no matter how much I liked a distro when I reviewed it, have I been tempted to migrate, but today is a new day my friends, and I see SUSE in my future.”

  1. Obviously, the folks reviewing 10.1 didn’t try to use ZenUpdate or YaST to add new installation repositories. Any idea when this might get repaired? And with online updates broken, how will you distribute the fixes?

    SUSE Linux 10.1 is a huge success thus far, and as you might expect, initially our servers have been a bit overloaded serving users. There are also still some issues left with the new zen-based package management, but we are working hard to get those fixed.

    Getting updates is currently completely possible by running “yast2 online_update” or selecting it from the control center menu (requires root access rights). We are putting together an update for the end of the week which will include fixes for zen-updater (which seems to not work for everybody with the patches currently available) as well as some other fixes.
