SuSE Linux 10 Downloads Hard To Get

Filed under
SUSE

A boxed copy of Linux 10 retails for $60, but the distribution can be downloaded for free in images suitable for transferring to one DVD or five CDs. The single available mirror site, however, didn't respond to several requests by TechWeb; the same held true for downloads from the openSuSE.org site.

Users equipped with a BitTorrent client may have success downloading Linux 10.

The openSuSE.org site warned that it may take several days for the downloading kinks to work out. "As SuSE Linux 10.0 was released just on Oct. 6th the mirrors are still downloading all the files and it will take a few days until all are synced," the group's site read Friday. "Sorry for any inconvenience."
