Request: OpenSuse 10.0

Postby 02bunced » Sun Aug 28, 2005 6:19 pm

May I request that when OpenSuse 10.0 comes out, we can have it on our coverdisks, please

Thanks for a great magazine,

im still waiting for 9.3 on coverdisk. its been out an awfully long while!

although not that bothered anymore, I've settled on ubuntu and fedora core 4. but it would be nice to update my SuSE 9.2 system.

Novell have normally waited some time before releasing ISO images. By the time they have released something suitable for the cover disc, there's often something more up to date to include.

I think you'll find with OpenSuse, they release the ISO's straight away. Maybe ;) I don't think there's anything on LX73's disk yet is there??? :)

Ah, no!!!! Not another 9.3 disk.... I've lost count of hte number of htose I've got :cry: Yes, I'm being serious I'm afraid. It was included on other mag's ages ago.

Seriously, it is a pain when you buy one mag with ABC Linux 1.2 on it then a few weeks later another mag comes out also with ABC Linux 1.2 as the cover disk. I don't buy the mag's for the cover disks I buy them for the content. Is it not possible to produce a diskless copy?

As for LXF, Mike knows! (Ooh, see how I substituted Mike for god there, I hope it doesn't give him any big ideas and anyway Michael means "who is like like the lord", so ramble ramble ramble...)

Hrm, good point. Perhaps this is a way to quell the institutionalised sizeism at LXF HQ:

1. Michael = He who is like the Lord
2. The Lord therefore can't have been very tall, if I'm like him
3. So sizeism = Blasphemy!

Er, maybe? Anyone? :-)

Michael is quite large, Mike is the diminutive version :)
