SUSE Linux 10.0: The Opening of SUSE in VirtualBox

SUSE Linux 10.0 was released October 6, 2005. Most notable about this release is that it is the first one to have been developed and released by the openSUSE Project, which still develops the distribution to this day.

Prior versions of SUSE Linux were sold in boxed packages, with ISO images generally posted online some time after the release of SUSE Linux to sales. Following Red Hat's lead with the Fedora Project, Novell opened the development to community involvement in 2005 and established the openSUSE project.

On a technical level, SUSE Linux 10.0 does not appear to be a significantly different release. The most notable feature addition is the inclusion of (then-)Novell AppArmor, a security tool that gives system administrators more control over which capabilities programs have access to. Although no longer primarily developed by SUSE, AppArmor remains part of the distribution today and is a component of several other distributions. 2 was still included as a pre-release, and GNOME saw a version bump.

When setting up this version of SUSE Linux, in VirtualBox's new Virtual Machine wizard I selected "openSUSE (32-bit)" as the operating system. Note however that the hard disk will be SATA by default. You will have to go into the machine's settings and change the hard disk controller from SATA to IDE in order for SUSE Linux to recognize the hard disk. I also suggest going into the Input menu and unselect "Mouse Integration".

Back one, SUSE Linux 9.3:
