How good is the new Suse?


Article from Issue 70/2006

In the June 2006 issue of Linux Magazine, we took a look at the new features introduced by the imminent Suse version. Read on to find out if the final version is worth an update.

May 12 was the big day: Novell finally uploaded Suse Linux 10.1 to various servers for i386, x86_64, and ppc. You may recall that the beta version we tested still had a number of bugs, and this prompted us to carefully scrutinize the official version. Installation and Hardware Installing Suse Linux 10.1 on a recent machine should be no problem. And we had no trouble updating a 10.0 version in our lab, although you may need to resolve conflicts if you choose to update. If you have a heavily-used machine, this could mean numerous clicks on keep packagename or delete packagename. Some users might have appreciated a button for Keep everything or even Delete everything. YaST sets up a random hostname that follows a pattern of linux-abcd during the install process: a good idea, especially if you are installing multiple machines simultaneously on a network.
