Yoper 3.0 requires some tinkering

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

Yoper claims to be a high-performance Linux distribution optimized for newer processors. It incorporates components from other distros, but its packages have been built from scratch to provide enhanced performance. I tested a beta of Yoper 3.0 on my desktop a year ago and was so impressed that when 3.0 was released this month, I installed it on my new Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv6105 notebook. Using it, however, left me disappointed.

The Yoper image initially boots to a screen offering the choice of booting in a live CD mode or starting the hard drive installer. If you want to install Yoper, you must choose the second option, as you can't install the distribution from the live CD desktop. When chosen, the installer starts an interactive ncurses-based configuration wizard. It runs through the usual steps of partitioning the drive and selecting partitions, filesystem, and boot loader. After copying some files, the wizard reboots the system and begins prompting for configuration information -- a root password, user account, timezone, package installation, and sound configuration.

Not for Everyone

The important point to make there is that Yoper should be excluded as a choice for newbies. IIRC (seen it a couple of days ago), this was mentioned explicitly, which is good. IBM published a nice distro guide yesterday(ish). Worth linking to...
