openSUSE 10.3 Beta 1 Live CDs

Filed under
SUSE

Stephan Kulow has created and uploaded Live CDs of the 1-CD installations for your pleasure: GNOME Live ISO, KDE Live ISO. He writes: “Please put ‘live CD’ into the summary of bug reports, so we don’t confuse them with the installation CDs. The Live CDs are still very early in development, but we would like to hear your feedback in general.“

..."linux" for both root and normal user (also named "linux").

(Upon cursory inspection: The KDE version includes some games from KDE 4, although "kpat" doesn't run. Almost everything else is from KDE 3.5.7. It includes a few new - to me - things, like "Jarnal," a Java notetaking app, which didn't run; the "KDE Groupware Wizard;" and the "KDE Network Folder Wizard." A cosmetic bug: OpenOffice.org's splash screen is black. Fortunately, it includes the blue wallpaper from versions 10.1 and 10.2, so you don't have to stay with the "green dust mite" default.)

Andrew then posted, "Unfortunately OS U was unsuccessful. I truly, truly appreciate everyone who backed us, but unfortunately since we where unsuccessful, combined with other circumstances, OS U will not have any more continued development." Read more

Early Morning Linux Voodoo at Denny’s

I could tell that he wasn’t comfortable turning over control of his laptop to a stranger, but after a few seconds I got a slight nod to the affirmative. I pulled the Acer over to my part of the counter and booted the Linux Mint KDE LTS I keep for just such purposes. As the computer accepted the DataStick as the boot option, I explained to Ed what I was doing. It was obvious he had no idea what I was talking about so we waited in awkward silence for the next few seconds. Finally, the Mint logo appeared on the screen. I opened Dolphin and located the Windows drive then asked him for the name of the file. He couldn’t remember but was sure it was a PDF. A few minutes later, I pulled a pen from my pocket and wrote down the number he needed and slid it back over to him with his laptop. Read more
