Packman: Building for openSUSE 11.0 and 10.0 Package Removal

April 29th, 2008 by

As SUSE Linux 10.0 has reached its end of life in November last year, the Packman team will be removing all SUSE Linux 10.0 packages from its repository end of this week. If you want to keep them aside, make sure to download a copy before.

And as for good news, the Packman team has started to build its packages for openSUSE 11.0 (against Beta 1) since a few days. You can enable it by going to YaST -> Software Management. From there select Repositories -> Manage Repositories in the menu. Then select Add -> Community Repositories, and from here select the “Packman Repository”.

The codecs one-click-install for 11.0 should be updated and available next week.

Thanks to the Switzerland Novell colleagues openSUSE is again on the biggest computer event in Switzerland. I will be there on a openSUSE demopoint at the Novell booth, showing the latest beta version. If you don’t belive that the package management is superfast now or want to see the new pretty installation without testing it yourself, here you have the chance …

If you are in Z├╝rich, don’t miss it!
