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.

Octa-core Cortex-A53 hacker SBC sells for $60

FriendlyARM’s $60, open spec “NanoPC-T3” SBC runs Android or Linux on an octa-core Cortex-A53 SoC packed with wireless and media interfaces, plus 8GB eMMC. The over-caffeinated board builders at Guangzhou, China-based FriendlyARM have shipped their highest-end hacker board yet. The NanoPC-T3 is almost identical to the NanoPC-T2 board, but swaps out the quad-core, Cortex-A9 Samsung S5P4418 SoC for a layout-compatible S5P6818 with eight Cortex-A53 cores that can be clocked dynamically from 400MHz to 1.4GHz. Last month, FriendlyARM’ unveiled an $11, quad-core NanoPi M1 single board computer with similarly open source hardware and Android and Linux software. Read more
