The development of SUSE Linux 10.2 is now officially underway with the release of the first alpha build: "SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 1 is available. It has one major problem, but apart from that it is highly usable. The installation using the GUI interface does not work, please select 'Text Mode' when booting from CD media."
Most reviewers have found OpenSUSE 10.1 to be a great Linux distribution, except, unfortunately, for its broken package manager. Now, though, SUSE has released a patch that makes life a lot easier for SUSE users.
SUSE 10.1 came out on May 11 and we've been putting through it's paces. Novell has released a solid update to their flagship operating system.
Novell on Monday plans to officially launch Bandit, an open-source identity management project that was quietly started earlier this year.
Microsoft's delay with the release of Windows Vista has left enough wiggle room for other players to pursue the desktop operating system market. An old Microsoft rival, Novell, is angling to seize the day with the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, a desktop OS geared to beat Vista in cost, manageability and features.
The SUSE Linux 10.1 Live DVD is available now. The Live DVD is a 32bit Intel-based system which contains 4 GB of great Linux software compressed into a 1.7 GB ISO.
In many ways, Novell is a lot like many other midsize software companies. All are struggling to reinvent themselves in a world where big deals are being won mainly by the likes of Oracle, IBM and SAP -- and where business models are being upended by such trends as open source and so-called "software as a service," where vendors make wares accessible over the Internet and rely more on monthly subscriptions than up-front license fees.
The Supplimentary repositories have changed. The following will help you to get the latest KDE 3.5.3 and future versions as well as all latest KDE apps.
I've been wrestling with Xen for a week or so now but before I post some articles about Xen itself I'd like to share this quick hack to get the Nvidia binary driver working with the SUSE 10.1 Xen kernel.
It's official: All mentions of Novell must now, once again, be preceded by the adjective "beleaguered."
The State of Lower Saxony has begun switching the PCs its tax authorities use from Solaris x86 to Linux. According to a press release, 12,000 computers are affected.
Novell Inc., which sells networking software and computer-consulting services, reported a second-quarter profit as sales declined. Results this quarter may miss analysts' estimates.
Review: Novell's OpenSUSE 10.1 operating system wears many hats well, but management tools can use some smoothing.
Following the highly intensive 9-month development effort of hundreds of full-time coders and volunteer contributors, SUSE Linux 10.1 was finally released to the public on 11 May 2006. We asked Andreas Jaeger, Project Manager at SUSE Linux, about his experiences with managing a massive and complex software project, and to give us some hints about the next SUSE release, the development of which is scheduled to start in just a couple of weeks.
