openSUSE 11.1 Alpha 1 Is Out

Final release will be available near Christmas!

By on July 25th, 2008 06:44 GMT
The first alpha version of openSUSE 11.1 was announced last night by the hard working people behind the openSUSE project: "While testing this on a Thinkpad R51, the system didn't boot after first stage installation. We are still looking into this issue (#411937). In addition to that, the default GNOME installation will complain about a missing package (providing gnome-session-branding)," said Christoph Thiel in the release announcement. Therefore, the DVD version of this first alpha is not recommended to be used for installation. Among the new technologies and applications included in the final version of openSUSE 11.1, due for release on December 18th, you'll find:

■ Linux kernel 2.6.27
■ KDE 4.1.1
■ KDE 3.5.10 (optional)
■ GNOME 2.24
■ OpenOffice.org 3.0
■ Software update stack improvements and many more...

We've tested the GNOME and KDE 4 Live CD i386 editions for you. There are a few screenshots below...
