I have been experimenting with it for the last week (beta2 and now RC1)and find it very good. The only problem is with ATI fglrx driver. I cant install it. I have RADEON 9700 and ATI worked in previous SUSE versions .

I was wondering if someone could tell me if I would be getting something that is close to SLED10 if I use openSuSE10.2? What's the difference between the two?

I'd go with the 10.2 RC1 or the final relaese that comes out Dec 7 th
I tryed SLED for a few days and did not like it because there is very little software available for it and it uses Gnome. As neer as I could tell, there no way to run KDE. And thats a deal breaker for me. Therez no way I pay 50 bucks a year for updates and get stuck with Gnome

10.2 can use Kde or Gnome and there's more software available for it. AND the update are free.

You most DEFINITELY CAN run KDE in SLED 10. You just have to ensure the option is selected at install time.

SLED 10 is Fantastic if you basically want a stable system without a lot of User installed software (Multi-media in particular). SLED 10 is very robust for business / office type applications. You also don't have to pay the 50 USD --but you won't get the updates --which might or might not be important to you.

SUSE 10.2 Open source means you'll have to add a lot more of your own stuff --nothing wrong with that -- and is more of a developers edition rather than a rock solid "Desktop Windows replacement".

In this case --You pays your money and takes your choice.

I'm happy with SLED 10 --once I've got a working system I leave it until I have very good reasons to upgrade or install anything new.

Others will find 10.2 more to their liking.

Incidentally 10.2 RC1 is FAR FAR better than the original dog that 10.1 was (and in some cases still is).

Cheers

Hi 1kyle,
Is there a way to switch back and forth between KDE and Gnome on the same Suse OS??

Ati doesn't care for linux users...

Suse 10.2 uses xorg 7.2 which isn't supported by the ati driver.

YES. Before you login you can change the session type . KDM/XDM will list all available options here... Gnome, KDE, xfce, ...

I'm trying to get this with bittorrent, but the initial file is coming down from ftp suse at about 100 bytes per second. Gonna be days before I can get the whole image. Anybody have the image they can transfer to me via yahoo messenger, if they allow files that big?

Cueman

Never mind, looks like 1GB is the file size limit.
Heck, if anybody has the 275kb torrent file they could share, that would be great too. Right now it's coming down at 40 bytes per second...LOL

Oh well, you might be better off just waiting till the 30th when GM comes out. I seem to have run across a slight bug in the updater, but it did finally fix it's self by running yast update 3 times and then zen started working. But now I have 2 zen update buttons and when I trash one of them it keeps coming back. Right now I'm installing stuff from a 10.1 repo so the system will probably eat itself anyway.

aint got no knowledge, me just dumb schmuck.
It's supposed to be Gold Metal I think but they took the info off the opensuse page.
So maybe we have to wait till dec 7th for the public release.
check out this page for more 10.2 torrents:
