SUSE Release 10 RC1 Release Candidate 1 available


HI everone --if you have a decent ADSL/ T2 system the release candidate RC1 is now available.

This Release Candidate is likely to be around 99.9% the same as the official retail / public release which will go live in October so definitely worth a try.

Judging by how I've found the Beta 4 I'm grabbing this one before the hungry hoardes have a go.

Will be testing today on a spare laptop.

I can always revert back to Beta 4 or 9.3 if it doesn't work but I'm expecting this to be the BEST YET.

have fun

Cheers

I am sure they will release a version of opensuse that corresponds to the commercial Suse 10 release but it won't contain proprietary software.

Is there a way to install without having to get all 5 disc? Seems like a waste since the official will be out soon. Ftp install or just use first disc?

Hi 1kyle,

I am testing the new release. It works excellent ( at least for me). I have upgraded my 10.0 beta4 with synaptic which installed all new packages. Until now I did not get any error messages and checking the packages installed, everything seems to be correct.

If you've got the Beta 4 I think you can just go for the DELTAS (much smaller).

I haven't tried this myself so it could be "Bovine Scatology" but in thory it should work -- read the README's first.

I've got a nice fast Broadband connection so getting the discs doesn't take too long once I get actually logged on to the mirror. I'm actually installing now on a laptop while I am posting this.

Cheers

Multimedia

Multimedia doesn't seem to work properly in 10.0 RC1.
In 9.3 one had to install a separate Multimedia-package via YOU to fix the problem. Are there any similar packages for 10.0 you would know off????

it's audio. Amarok, kaffeine and mplayer don't play mp3s or wavs. Also, no program, including Kscd, seems to be able to play audio-cds.

Opensuse 10 is still a beta, well rc1 so you wont get mutch support but this is what i have done.


bmp-plugins-mad
gstreamer-plugins-extra-mad
k3b-mad
kdemultimedia3-mad
libtunepimp-mad
mad
mad-devel
python-mad
xine-mad
xmms-lib-mad

That are the packages in "multimedia pack 1" for suse 9.3

They get mp3 playback enabled.
I had allready updated kde to the newest version in 9.3 (same opensuse 10uses) so i knew most of them might work.


Then i went to " ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/sup...3/applications "
And found most of the packages there, just go to " www.freshmeat.net " to find those missing or to " www.rpmfind.net "

also serch for "w32codec-all" to enable divix playback and libdvdcss to enable dvd playback.

You still have to update libxine to make it able to play restricted formats, go to " http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/ " and update libxine to the newest version, if that is not enough then update xine-ui allso .
