Although 9.3 has been available (fully legally) via BitTorrent for 2/3 weeks now.

50+ seeds for each of the three options.

Uhmm... This may be legal, though some moderators don't want to have such links on LQ.
EDIT: First link is ok.

Just my

Why wouldn't moderators want links to LEGAL, and freely available with the blessings of the distribution procucers, open source packages?

leadazide was referring to post #2. In the past, SuSE emphatically did not make its installation ISO images available for download, nor did it give permission to others to make those ISO's available. You could either buy the retail boxed set, perform an FTP install, or download a Live CD, but sources that claimed to be links to "SuSE ISO images" were definitely not sanctioned by SuSE, and by definition could not be considered either legit or official. Many if not all such threads were closed.

SuSE's current position on making its installation ISO's available apparently may have changed, given that the v9.2 installation DVD image is available via any of their official mirror sites. Whether this will be repeated for v9.3 remains to be seen. I can say, and with confidence, that installing SuSE via FTP (ie, post #1) has always been allowed. As to whether torrents of the 9.3 installation images have SuSE's OK, I can only say that SuSE would need to be consulted. -- J.W.

I emailed them about this. Here's what they said:

Quote:
Hi,
Traditionally, the ISO's are placed on the ftp site apporx 6 weeks after the initial release of the newest version. SUSE Linux Pro 9.3 released April 15, 2005. We are expecting the files to be placed on the ftp site end of May. ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386

Thank You!
Any time now then!

From license.txt on the installation DVD:

Quote:
The Software is a collective work of Novell. You may make and use
unlimited copies of the Software for Your distribution and use within
Your Organization. You may make and distribute unlimited copies of
the Software outside Your organization provided that: 1) You receive
no consideration; and, 2) you do not bundle or combine the Software
with another offering (e.g., software, hardware, or service). The
term "Organization" means a legal entity, excluding subsidiaries and
affiliates with a separate existence for tax purposes or for legal
personality purposes. An example of an Organization in the private
sector would be a corporation, partnership, or trust, excluding any
subsidiaries or affiliates of the organization with a separate tax
identification number or company registration number. In the public
sector, an example of Organization would be a specific government
body or local government authority.
Share away with Novell's blessing. Just receive NO payment of any form for it.

But with their making your rights EXPLICIT, CRYSTAL CLEAR, and KNOWN you should respect them and buy it anyhow. Why? Because they're producing a great distribution, providing excellent support, making you know full well you can install it for free, AND fighting evil entities such as SCO and Microsuck.

I downloaded the networked install CD from HERE, but it won't install! It asks for a mirror, and then it asks for the subdirectory within the mirror, which isn't anything obvious like their root SuSE directory, or the root directory for your architecture within that. Neither can I find anywhere that tells you.

I use Gentoo now, and I'm very happy with it. Unless SuSE release an install DVD for 9.3 over the net, I really can't be bothered.

Suse has alot to do to interest me - I chose it as my first distro, and got such a bad taste about Linux.

I downloaded Suse 9.2 a while ago. When trying to install, it couldnt find any software packages. Tried downloading Suse again, and same thing happened. So, installed Suse 9.1, and downloaded 9.2 again, using 9.1 instead of windows. When the disc finished writing, the md5 sum would always be wrong.

Luckily, Linux magazine shipped a complete DVD with suse 9.2. It installed, but sound wouldnt work, installing a webserver was far from easy, and the fonts were awful. Gave up, until next issue, where a mandriva 10.2 DVD arrived. Been happy with Linux ever since.

If Suse 9.3 has all the errors above fixed, ill happily give it another go.
