Posted on: 10/06/2005 09:12 AM

SUSE Linux 10.0 Final has been released:

I'm glad to announce the final version (aka the Goldmaster) of SUSE Linux 10.0. Developing 10.0 as part of the openSUSE project with an open bugzilla was a new and great experience. Thanks a lot to everybody that contributed in testing, reporting and fixing bugs, discussions etc.

We've created the following flavors of SUSE Linux versions and installable trees:

* 10.0-OSS - the Open Source (OSS) version (available from and its mirrors):
- i386 (Intel 32-bit, AMD 32-bit x86), x86_64 (AMD64, Intel EM64T)
and ppc (PowerPC) architectures
- 5 CDs for each architecture
- experimental jigdo files to create i386 CDs and DVDs from the ftp
- delta-ISOs from RC1 to the final version

* 10.0 - the retail and Eval versions including some non-OSS software
(available from and its mirrors):
- i386, x86_64 architecture
- 5 CDs i386
- one i386 DVD with the contents of these 5 i386 CDs
- one x86_64 DVD with the same packages as the i386 DVD
- a LiveDVD for i386

* Multi-arch ftp trees that can be used as YaST repositories and come
with debuginfo and source RPMs:
- inst-source: the OSS install tree (on
- inst-source-java: the install tree for Java packages including Sun
Java (on
- inst-source-extra: same non-OSS packages (on
