Feature changed by: Michael Löffler (michl19)
Feature #308401, revision 7
Title: Opensuse netbook edition

- openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE-11.3: Evaluation
Priority
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Agustin Chavarria (dj_ubun_1)

Description:
The growing demand for netbooks, has made several distributions of
Linux, to create a specific version for these computers.
The creation of a version with moblin, with gnome, and kde would be a
big step. and also enter a specific kernel for these computers,
including drivers and kernel patches to improve stability of the
distribution.
This would include a change in the interface in both gnome and kde, and
both of these projects have packages to improve the interface little
displays

Discussion:
#1: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh) (2009-12-05 14:55:22)
OpenSUSE already offers GNOME and KDE (though may not with Little
Display Interfaces, dunno).
What specific kernel is needed, and why is not the one provided by
default good enough? What extra patches are so strongly required?

#2: Agustin Chavarria (dj_ubun_1) (2009-12-05 15:45:14)
But the gnome and kde, have no version to little display, it will be
goog a gnome netbook version or kde netbook version.

#3: Todd R (theblackcat) (2009-12-05 19:49:08) (reply to #2)
KDE SC 4.4 is providing a netbook workspace by default.  KDE SC 4.4
Beta 1, which is already available in the build service, has it
already.

#4: Agustin Chavarria (dj_ubun_1) (2009-12-26 15:39:04)
i mean an option in the installer to select GNOME or GNOME netbook, KDE
or KDE netbook. or make and specific image

#5: Markus K (kamikazow) (2010-01-12 03:04:53) (reply to #4)
There is no GNOME for netbooks. You can get Moblin for openSUSE,
though.
The KDE part of this request is a dupe of

+ We should have at least one version supporting netbooks (GNOME, Moblin
+ or KDE). Andrew is working on Goblin, the Novell team around Michael
+ Meeks is doing Moblin for Novell, KDE upstream is workong on netbook
+ support and GNOME works on netbook support for gnome-shell as well.
