openSUSE 10.3 (64-Bit)


openSUSE Wiki's

I have been working on a few official wiki's for the openSUSE Project.

These Wiki's superscede everything else on this site, so...  use the Wiki's first!

Getting Started with openSUSE

Configure, Build and Install a Custom Linux Kernel


General Information

This site will attempt to help you customize openSUSE 10.3 64-Bit, to get past some rough spots during installation, and to help you install some very cool shit for your desktop.

This site assumes that you already have this version of openSUSE installed.  This site will not help with the actual installation process.  If you've never used linux before, I strongly recommend installing to a blank IDE hard drive, and to make sure that no other drives are plugged in during the installation.

Betas 2 and 3 and RC1 have worked perfectly for me, so I am sticking with 64-bit.

To be able to build packages mentioned on this site, you will first need to install developer packages in Linux, including GCC, C++, kernel-source, python-devel and probably many more.  Visit this page for more information:  Software Packages.

My original sites for openSUSE 10.3 Beta 2 (64-Bit)openSUSE 10.3 Beta 1 (32-Bit) and openSUSE 10.3 Alpha 5 (32-Bit) are still available but are now depricated.  Everything should work, but there will not be any more updates.
