openSUSE 11.1 Beta 5.1 for PowerPC Released

November 14th, 2008 by

The Beta5 DVD and NET ISO images for PowerPC have just been replaced by Beta5.1 ISO images.  The only change is the way the ISOs are created – now they are bootable media.

There is a Delta-ISO from Beta5 DVD to Beta5.1 available in case you have Beta5 downloaded.

The media are available at the same place Beta5 is available: http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1-Beta5

Additionally new initrd and linuxrc for PowerPC have been uploaded in the PPC-HotFix directory.

These files are for Pegasos and Efika PowerPC systems if you want to do a network installation.  Use these files and boot with the insecure=1 kernel parameter.

If you have further questions, please ask on the openSUSE PPC mailinglist,
