Novell Preps Users for Move to Linux

Filed under
SUSE

Novell used its BrainShare conference last week to elaborate on its product migration path to Linux, and included an assurance to customers that it will support NetWare well into the next decade. The annual event featured a series of product announcements, including a preview of a new edition of Open Enterprise Server (OES), expected to ship in June 2007. Another new offering is Version 10 of the SuSE Linux Enterprise Server.

The new edition of OES, code-named Cypress, will run NetWare on Linux only as a guest operating system under the open source XEN or VMware's ESX Server virtualization platforms. Existing OES implementations let IT run a NetWare or Linux kernel.

Many NetWare customers say they will migrate to the Linux-based OES when a NetWare kernel is no longer available. One issue preventing them from doing so now is that Novell's Network Storage Services (NSS) and its file permissions and access rights are not fully supported in Linux.

Full Story.

Calamares Release and Adoption

  • Calamares 3.0 Universal Linux Installer Released, Drops Support for KPMcore 2
    Calamares, the open-source distribution-independent system installer, which is used by many GNU/Linux distributions, including the popular KaOS, Netrunner, Chakra GNU/Linux, and recently KDE Neon, was updated today to version 3.0. Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.
  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon. It would appear that many KDE Neon users have voted for Calamares to become the default graphical installer system used for installing the Linux-based operating system on their personal computers. Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.
