How can I download old distro; SUSE 10.3?


I can't find any links on the SUSE site for downloading older versions of SUSE. Our build tools for a project work with SUSE 10.3 but not with Ubuntu. Rather than burning time I'd like to just go with what works.

Not sure of any...it only goes back to 11.0, but this doesn't make sense to me. If you load old stuff because you don't want to spend time updating your software/tools, you'll be stuck using old, outdated junk until you DO update.

Wouldn't it be a better use of your time to get your software and tools working on a current system??

It depends on where you sit. If you have a stable system and process that works for your needs then you save time/$ by sticking with it. If you have to screw around with tools for every new release but not really gaining anything then it does not make sense.

All the links I could find were dead.

No, if you have a stable system, you go with something that doesn't update often. Like the Enterprise versions of SUSE, or CentOS, RedHat, etc. The 'open' versions are SUPPOSED to upgrade/update often...if you want to keep up with them, you update your tools. If not, you're where you are now...looking for old software, because you don't want to update your tools/libraries/whatever.

If you want to develop a program for Windows in 2010, you probably wouldn't be using the Windows 95 development kit...even though it may have been a 'stable' system 14 years ago....

Do you want to direct download or torrents download.

Torrents consists of all versions of openSUSE. See this link search in torrentz.com

Finding openSUSE 10.3 on openSUSE.org

When go to the download site of openSUSE it will say at the end of the address "112". Change the 112 to 110 for openSUSE 11.0, and 103 for openSUSE 10.3(if they didn't delete the site). I don't where, but some places still have old SUSE releases. I have found sites with SUSE 10.0 and 10.1.

No support...

There may be downloads of various older openSUSE distributions but there are no repositories for anything older that openSUSE 11.0.

Thanx for the constructive replies.

I'm working with a freescale BSP that calls out the use of particular old Linux versions to build a BSP. I currently have a PC with SUSE 10.3 loaded that I have been using with my development kit. My compadre in another city is working with another development kit and I wanted us to be on the same page with the same linux version. I have the SUSE10.3 disks but without the online repositories the BSP doesn't build. My compadre has toughed it out and got the BSP to build using Ubuntu. I was also able to load red hat 9 with disks I have been able to get the BSP to build. The BSP builds using LTIB. Anywho, I think we have a couple of options moving forward. I haven't tried the torrenz suse 10.3 download but that may be a good option too.

thanx again!

No repositories but...

According to a fellow KÝbenhavner, the good Knud, there are some openSUSE resources available. See the last post.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge, but what's "PPC"? I have Suse 9.3 no Deb or Ubuntu.
