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”.

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
