Posted on: 10/20/2005 10:51 PM

SUSE Linux 10.1 Alpha 2 has been released:

SUSE Linux 10.1 Alpha 2 is ready for testing.

New significant changes in 10.1 Alpha 2 since Alpha 1:

* New experimental libfontconfig
It contains bug which is causing segmentation faults in all KDE and Gnome applications after update/installation. You need to workaround this by calling "fc-cache -f" as root. (#128080)

* APT successor SMART is provided in the smart rpm package. It can be used like apt-get using apt or YUM package repositories (all inst-source directories contain YUM meta data)

* Update to KDE 3.5 Beta 2

* Update to Gnome 2.11.1

* Update to OpenOffice.org 2.0 RC 3

Note: Alpha 2 will be followed by Alpha 3 in four weeks, Alpha 2 is not supported and we advice to not use it on production systems. It has only gone through minimal testing on our side.

Please report all bugs according to

This time we have made a tri-arch (i386, x86_64, ppc) ftp tree. We will release next week 10.0 Final with a tri-arch ftp tree as well if no issues are found with this 10.1 Alpha2 tri-arch tree.
