openSUSE 11.2 Final


Recommended Posts

You guys seem excited about openSUSE. What makes it a good choice for an OS, over say Mint or Ubuntu? Or is it mostly a flavor thing? Is it a good OS for newer linux users?

 

i prefer ubuntu...but suse will do in a pinch. ;)

yes i think it's a great os for new users, you start learning straight away, because you have to add some repo's to install one or two things to get full multi-media functions, but this isn't hard to do.

 

and after that there's everything included in it, burn cd/dvd's, office, etc etc

 

also bruce has done some great tutorials for suse here:- http://itsyourpc.org/

 

click on opensuse desktop to see suse 11.1 in action. ;)

openSUSE always seems to be cutting edge for a Linux distro. They are always on top of the latest KDE desktop like nobody else. I have personally never seen another os with the great security measures openSUSE has either. It also seems to be the most rounded os for standard install and most complete if more wanted then the standard.

 

I agree with terry as it's a great os for beginners, it's what I cut my Linux teeth on. openSUSE killed Microsoft Windows for me. :tup:

usb,

 

update from an older version,

 

i should think you could even install it from within ubuntu to a spare drive just by running the iso file.

 

:b33r:

 

 

usb is 2 gigs

 

running karmic

 

opensuse has an installer ?

not sure what you mean by installer duan, but yes i'd say, how else do you install it.. :lol:

 

2gb usb is plenty for a live cd to install it.

 

here's a networking install link :- http://en.opensuse.org/Network_Install

 

here's installing from internet :- http://en.opensuse.org/INSTALL_Internet

 

don't ask me for any more help because i always use a dvd... :rofl2:

if it was me intoxicated then i'd say no.. but you it's probably when you do your best thinking... :rofl2:

 

no idea how hard it is to install by any other means than a disc duan, just know it's possibly..

 

think i'd try booting the live cd from usb and see what happens.. :tup:

Hard Disk

 

 

openSUSE installation can also be booted from the hard disk. To do this, copy the kernel (linux) and the installation system (initrd) from the directory /boot/architecture/ on the installation media to the hard disk and add an appropriate entry to the existing boot loader of a previous openSUSE installation.

presume you can do this with any installed linux system. ;)
