SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 2
Posted on: 07/14/2006 07:34 AM

SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha 2 has been released. Here the release announcement:


We're glad to announce SUSE Linux 10.2 Codename "Basilisk Lizard"
Alpha2.

It's downloadable from today on and will be the last community/consumer
distribution called SUSE Linux. We'll rename SUSE Linux into openSUSE.

With current naming we experienced confusion internally and externally
between the project openSUSE and the distribution created there. And
especially with the new naming of our Linux business products (SUSE
Linux Enterprise 10) the differentiation between our business products
and community/consumer product is not intuitive. Therefor the upcoming
community/consumer version will be named openSUSE 10.2. We'll
implement first name changes with Alpha 3 starting directly after
Alpha 2 and will have a fully renamed distribution with Beta 1 in Nov.

We're very sorry that suggestions like SuSE Linux Voyager, Gecko Linux
or Novora didn't make it ;-). But according to the discussions on the
mailinglist openSUSE is one of your favorites and will make openSUSE
consistent in all.

SUSE Linux 10.2 Alpha2 is slowly moving to 10.1. We have not done any
real major updates yet but lots of minor changes, I list some below:

Desktop
* KOffice 1.5.2
* Poppler 0.5.3
* ALSA 1.0.12rc1
* OpenOffice 2.0.3rc7
* freetype 2.2.1

Development packages
* GCC 4.1.2 pre-release
* Autoconf 2.60
* gdb 6.5

Misc
* enable MALLOC_PERTURB_ and MALLOC_CHECK_ for hardcore
malloc debugging and failure.
* Various package updates
* Lots of Bugfixes
* MIT kerberos 1.5
* coreutils 5.97
* gphoto 2.2.0

Full details are in the ChangeLog file on CD1.

Alpha2 has one major problem:

* The installation using the GUI interface does not work,
please select "Text Mode" when booting from CD media (#183827)

Further problems are available as usual from:

Have a lot of fun!
