reposting cause of netscape screwed up my message
with line returns that I did not put there :(
I would deleate the old msg myself but it didn't work
Why SuSE 5.3?
I can't imagine what the differences that SuSE 5.3 will
have over 5.2 SuSE.
Only reason I see that SuSE 5.3 will be released is their
dedication to release a new SuSE every 4 months or so.
Which by it-self has me wondering, do I really need 5.3?
(yes I am on the subscribe to SuSE updates).
I would really like not to be the "last one on the block" to
be able to use one new feature such as glibc2. I know
maybe the delay is for maybe to be able to put in 2.2.0
Kernel with the SuSE 6.0 as they just released 2.1.105
with HAM radio drivers (which is to me looking like they
about finished with the 2.1.XX development)=(they
throwing all the bells and whistles in).
I would very much like to figure out how to tweak my
current box to support the now linux standard of glibc2.
Everything is going that way, why wait.
Linux is for testing/haveing fun/tweaking/hacking you
name it. Seeing the RH users having fun/trubbles with it,
and seeing Debian get tons of support + having their beta
2.0 called HAMM is getting me jealous.
Kernel 2.0.34 is out and stable from what I have heard,
SuSE "heavly - patches" thier Kernels, so in waiting for
SuSE to update thier ftp site with .34, I am wonder what
they patch exacly to make it thier own version of the
Kernel thus making it un-pactchable by some of the
standard patches for the Linux Kernels, this is fustrating.
I could use a standard-out-of-the-box Kernel source-tree,
I have before, so I am wondering as stated above what
makes the -suse kernels so different/ should I wait? I did
notice that most distros have to append LILO if they have
over 32Megs of RAM but I have never had that problem.
I really enjoy SuSE, it is keeping pretty much standard to
the Linux community. Unlike lets say Red Hat, which strays
by putting in thier "easy-to-use-config" programs which
are not standard, and making people who help RH users
"Have" to be Red Hat users themselfs. But RH over all is
a good distro as all of them are. This is not over the .rpm
So does SuSE have a wish list, to like make comments on
what they should have on a up-and-comming distro of
thiers? if so where do I find it?
