SuSE 8.1 ISOs, where to get?


Hi All,
Does anyone know where I can get ISO images of SuSE Linux Professional 8.1?? I know SuSE only offer a live-eval ISO, but I was hoping maybe someone ripped the CDs into ISOs and uploaded them online or something.

Thanx.

You have to buy them or you can download Suse via FTP. But it would go against Suse's license, sort of like warez and we don't conduct that sort of thing on this site.

Oh I see. I didn't intend to endulge in any illegal activities anyways. I just figured since SuSe IS Linux, they wouldn't have minded to distribute ISOs.

In Any case, I'll drop the subject since its illegal, and I also don't approve of it either if its illegal.

Thanx for the reply trickykid. Keep up the good work

Are you sure that it is illegal to upload them?I guess I better stop sharing them if that is the case.

Perhaps I'm misinformed, but I thought the only thing that had to be available from distribution providers was source code. I think we've been spoiled into expecting the different distributions to provide ISOs and RPMs. We musn't forget that these are normal companies whose profits are the single bottom line.

IMHO if you want a free version of linux go to linuxfromscratch.org. If you want to take advantage of a simplified and prebuilt linux distro you should be willing to financially support that programmers that make that possible.

Just my 2 cents ;-)

You can always use debian.It's not a company and better than the comercial distros anyway.I did buy Suse and it was worth the money for the doc's included.Don't get me started on the OS.

i did hear somewhere that SuSE provide isos for download themselves via a slow ftp connection, and that they tend to not make a big thing of it. Not sure if that was all hot air or not. My advice is if you like the live eval CD, then buy SuSE outright. for what you get, it's a fraction of the cost of w*nd*ws, and it's as competitive as the retail prices of red hat and mandrake.

hey hey hey, by the way:

you might want to have a look through here.

also, you'll probably be interested in this page here too, although neither provides proper iso images for SuSE, they come pretty close.

So far as I know, some of the stuff on the SuSE CDs is cannot be redistributed, as it is copyrighted by either SuSE or Opera (in the case of Opera) or SAP (in the case of SAP DB) etc...

You can install it direct from there FTP site (which has all the offending packages omitted, I believe).

I tried a network install of SuSE that worked very successfully. Only took about one hour for a 2.5Gb install.

The big problem was that SuSE ran so SLOW!! I ended up trying some speed checks between SuSE 8.1, Mandrake 9.0, and RedHat 8.0. Actions like opening up StarOffice 6.0, opening terminal windows, transferring files, loading files into programs etc.

SuSE 8.1 was generally significantly slower than RH and Mandrake. I tried to standardise the window settings and sounds and colours etc.
