SUSE Linux 10.1 Beta6 is ready
Posted on: 03/03/2006 01:35 PM
SUSE Linux 10.1 Beta6 has been released:
Beta6 has still some rough edges and I will not advise to put it on production systems.
For now let me just point out the following issues:
* The CD 1 needs to remain in the cd drive after installing from it. Do not remove it during the reboot and wait for YaST to request CD 2.. Otherwise the installation of packages from CD 2-5 will fail afterwards.
* The partitioner is broken in some cases (Bug 151947). which might result in: o mixed up filesystem types - for example one chooses ext2 and the partition is getting formatted with reiserfs o creates double or totally obscure entries within the fstab of the system o makes inproper proposals for a standard partitioning
* Download of Release Notes will fail. * The online test with download of Updates will fail.
The factory tree contains a slightly newer packagemanager than the CDs, it fixes a issue where installation of repositories with source packages in it failed.
SUSE Linux 10.1 is offered via bittorrent and via normal download. Please use a mirror or the download.opensuse.org URL which directs you to a mirror.
The distribution comes with 5 CDs. You need (on x86 and x86-64, I haven't tested PPC): * CD1 only for a minimal text installation (English) * CDs 1-3 for a default KDE or GNOME installation in German or English * All CDs for other selections
