openSUSE 11.4 in VirtualBox

Posted 02-02-2020 at 10:20 PM by wagscat123
Updated 02-02-2020 at 11:44 PM by wagscat123

openSUSE 11.4 was released March 10, 2011, the day before the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan.

systemd wasn't quite ready to be default in openSUSE 11.4, and GNOME 3.0 would be shipped a few weeks after the release of openSUSE 11.4. GNOME 2.32, the last release of GNOME 2 and basis for the MATE Desktop fork of GNOME, was the default version of GNOME. As well, this is the last openSUSE release to include the highly customized one panel GNOME interface with the custom slab menu. GNOME...

openSUSE 11.3 in VirtualBox

Posted 01-31-2020 at 11:19 PM by wagscat123
Updated 02-02-2020 at 10:21 PM by wagscat123

openSUSE 11.3 was released July 15, 2010. For this release and a few after, openSUSE had attempted to move to an 8 month release schedule.

openSUSE 11.3 was notably the first version of openSUSE to include LXDE, a lightweight GTK based desktop environment that's been slowly phased out in favor of LXQt in recent years. As well, much attention was paid to integrating the distribution with smartphones. A package to a cloud storage service by SpiderOak attempted to bring the distribution's...

openSUSE 11.2 in VirtualBox

Posted 01-26-2020 at 10:58 PM by wagscat123
Updated 02-09-2020 at 10:26 AM by wagscat123

openSUSE 11.2 was released November 12, 2009, a few weeks after Windows 7 reached general availability.

KDE and GNOME both had slight but noticeable upgrades. KDE was upgraded to version 4.3, and KDE 3 was removed from the main install media. By the time of KDE 4.3, KDE 4 had become stable enough for general use, and many programs had been ported to the Qt4 and 4th generation KDE libraries. GNOME in openSUSE saw a darker and greener theme introduced, Sonar, which impressively used a...

openSUSE 11.1 in VirtualBox

Posted 01-25-2020 at 03:19 PM by wagscat123
Updated 01-26-2020 at 11:31 PM by wagscat123

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...

openSUSE 11.0 and KDE 4.0 in VirtualBox

Posted 01-23-2020 at 11:06 PM by wagscat123
Updated 01-26-2020 at 11:34 PM by wagscat123

openSUSE 11.0 was released June 19, 2008.

It most prominently shipped KDE 4 and a version of YaST ported to Qt 4. KDE 4.0 introduced radical changes to KDE's interface and design, such as Plasma and its applets that go on various panels and the desktop. KDE 4 also switched the file manager to Dolphin, and added many graphic effects and a new theme (Oxygen) with openSUSE customizations to the desktop. While KDE 4 modernized the desktop environment, it was rather unstable and incomplete...
