OpenSuSE 10.3 on my laptop

Filed under
SUSE

Sontek and I have talked several times about SuSE, and that I should use it. I have used it, in a VM, and I have to agree when I am told that it isn't really fair to say that using a vm is the same as having a native install. Not in para-virtualization anyway. So, I installed OpenSuSE 10.3 on my laptop just to check it out. If it can run on my laptop then it must be good, because my laptop sucks. I have an Averatec, their moto is cheap and you know it (at least that is what I think it is.)

So heres what I came up with:

Pros:

* YaST actually isn't that bad for installing stuff. Their one click install is quite nice, and pretty convenient.
* Both ALT buttons work. I want to know how they did that because gosh, that is nice.
* Hibernate actually works, a hard feet.

COM and Pico-ITX dev kit run Linux on dual-core Cortex-A7

iWave has launched a rugged, SODIMM-style COM and Pico-ITX form factor carrier board that run Linux on the Renesas dual-core, Cortex-A7 RZ/G1E SoC. In January, iWave launched the iW-RainboW-G20M-Qseven computer-on-module, built around the dual-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A15 based Renesas RZ/G1M and RZ/G1N SoCs. Now the company has followed up with a 67.6 x 37mm, SODIMM form factor “iW-RainboW-G22M-SM” COM that runs Linux 3.10.31 on the dual-core Cortex-A7 based RZ/G1E SoC from the same RZ/G series SoCs.
