So pleeeeease somebody, enlighten me :-) Is there any
I have no clue about Novell strategy, but looking at what is
available, we can have some ideas.
Say... Just this morning I was fed of the problems I have with 11.1
and wondered if I was not to change to an other distro, so I looked
* I have a Mandriva cd (Mandriva One). But I see no online
repositories and if I want more, say a dvd, I have to pay to have one.
That said, they gives away CD by hundred.
* I have a debian mini CD, but aptitude is not that handy. I have to
know what package I want and then apt-get install do a tremendous
work. Yet the mini cd do not recognise the network cards I have, so
the install fails... even after install with the cd1, I still have
problem to reconfigure any service (you have to know any part of
debian to be able to make this at hand - what are the init levels in
* I have an ubuntu cd. 8.04 LTS is very attractive. But I have yet to
test it to see if I wont be down to aptitude very soon, no dvd and
repositories are debians
So may be I will try to move my 11.0 install to an other, bigger,
I have plenty of problems with the 11.1, but the only really blocking
is the intel wifi driver not working, so I can't use it out of my
house! given the 11.0 one works perfectly, it looks like a simple
problem, but it's well know (many bug reports) and not yet solved.
So what? openSUSE is largely the more friendly Linux distribution,
with the most impressive number of incorporated packages, with all at
hand, a very strong community (think of Packman!!) and the larger
scope: one can make an openSUSE headless server, an openSUSE fancy
desktop, whatever he wants, all with the same well known distribution.
So what can Novell do better: lot of things, but the new bugzilla
shows the bug solving problem is understood and the last openSUSE 11.1
box had stickers (and even a very handy diode light :-))
