openSuse 11 RC1


Recommended Posts

Nope, I'm not gonna do it this time darn it! :geezer:

 

I got 10.3 tuned up and running like a top. I half way know what I'm doing. Nope, not gonna touch 11.0 yet.

 

I'll wait this time, oh...at least an hour. :mrwinky:

I will buy it, like I have every time they release.

 

I will likely however use KDE3. Just something about KDE4 that doesn't sit well with me right now.

Well, my ati radeon HD 2600 pro works with the ati official driver. There isn't any 3d support offerred by the opensource driver.

 

Now, if I could just get suse to stop thinking the HD tv ati vid card thingy is not my sound card, and quit thinking my old sound blaster 16 pci is just a game port, I might have sound. :lol:

 

I have no HD TV but as usual, the toaster works well. Suse doesn't see it either. :mrwinky:

Extremely stable, everything works great , so good in fact that I installed it on my laptop and it will stay on the laptop until I get the boxed set, then the final release will be installed :tup:

I'll buy the final version and give it a spin.

 

Could you be more specific about KDE 4 Bruce? Is it the concept itself, or is it just not quite there yet?

Both.

 

I prefer kde3.

 

The new dolphin file manager is a half baked attempt at removing features aka gnome mentality that users are stupid.

 

KDE4 will mature in time, but until it does, I will continue to use KDE3.

 

11 RC1 using KDE3 is rock steady and stable, package management is extremely fast and everything just works.

Thanks. I might give both a spin - I haven't seen KDE4 since release day.

I may have to order 11.0. :lol:

 

I tried it on my better machines but I thought I'd get an old Dell out and give it a try. This is a 7 year old Dell Dimension L866r. It has a P3 866MHz and 512MB PC100 sdram; and the integrated Intel onboard graphics uses up a chunk of that.

 

Suse 11.0, after some work, has 3D accel, plays dvd movies ok, and just runs like a top!

 

This old machine just shows how much $$$ some folks waste ( not moi off course :mrwinky: ) buying new computers when all they do is basic stuff.
