Giving OpenSuse 12.1 a shot

Filed under
SUSE

When I read about some of the features in OpenSuse 12.1, I couldn’t resist giving it a try. I decided to use the Live KDE version.

Installation

Installation was not complicated, and could have been easier if it wasn’t for the preexisting data partition that I wanted to preserve. So, setting up the partitions the way I wanted took me a few minutes, but in the end it did exactly what I wanted. Really, installation of a Linux system is so simple these days that I don’t think there is much that needs to be said about it. Lets just move on.

Configuration

This part is interesting. OpenSuse now allows you to set it up as a “Rolling Release”.
