openSUSE day is over – Linuxtag continues…


May 31, 2007 2:21 am





In the afternoon we had two mobile computer related talks. Timo’s presentation (see photo above) showed in his presentations some areas were Linux has to improve, e.g. he did some initial measurements for suspend to disk that shows that Mac OS X is faster than Vista and both are faster than openSUSE 10.2. Compressing the disk image during suspend gives an improvement of 30 % for openSUSE but we’re still the slowest.:-( The question is now on how to move forward here. Timo also talked about fingerprint sensor support – he’s one of the main authors in this area -, powermanagement and wireless support.In the evening Patrick presented openSUSE on the Sony Playstation 3. Today you’ll find us at the openSUSE booth. Matthias Hopf will talk later today about compiz and Larry Ewing will take in a panel discussion about the future of the desktop.

    Is there a link available to install openSUSE on PS3?

    I’m interested in knowing if there will ever be a installer capable of installing Suse on a Macbook or Macbook Pro without bootcamp. When the Intel Macs (or Mactel’s) came out it sounded like the release of a distro which could install on them would be relatively simple because of the existing code for EFI on the Itanium platform. Over a year has gone by and I still haven’t seen a single distro where I can throw in the CD/DVD, run the installer, and choose to wipe out the hard drive completely. Is there one out there that I am simply unaware of?
