openSUSE 11.1 was released December 18, 2008.

It was the last version of openSUSE to feature KDE 3.5 as an alternative to KDE 4. In my experience, KDE 4.1 in this release was an improvement over the 4.0 included in openSUSE 11.0 but still not stable enough for comfort.

GNOME's log-in and display manager, gdm, saw a re-write and a more simple design that in many ways foreshadowed what was to come with GNOME 3. YaST2 also had a few modules updated, most memorably its partitioning module. was also upgraded to version 3.0.

The Evergreen project was a project to extend the support period of various openSUSE versions released prior to the Leap-Tumbleweed realignment of the distribution in the mid-2010s. openSUSE 11.1 was Evergreen's first targeted openSUSE release, and had some form of updates and support until early 2012.

When setting up this version of openSUSE, in VirtualBox's new Virtual Machine wizard I selected "openSUSE (32-bit)" as the operating system. I additionally suggest, to make your life easier, to go into the Input menu and unselect "Mouse Integration".

Back one, openSUSE 11.0:
Up next, openSUSE 11.2:
