openSUSE Edu Li-f-e 11.4 update release announcement

August 15th, 2011 by



The openSUSE Education team is proud to announce the release of updated openSUSE Edu Li-f-e – Linux for Education. A Linux distribution that provides parents, students, teachers as well as IT admins running labs at educational institutes with education and development resources for their needs. Edu Li-f-e is based on openSUSE 11.4.

This new version has all packages available from the official update repository which contains many bug and security fixes. There are also some packages with version updates from the Open Build Service and a few new feature additions as well. New features include, but are not limited to: KDE version 4.7, GeoGebra, a geometry package providing for both graphical and algebraic input. The chromium browser from the open-source project behind the Google Chrome browser. And Blender, the cross platform suite for 3D creation with ffmpeg and luxrender support.

Check out the complete list of packages here.

LTSP prebuilt image is also updated, it now uses openSUSE 11.4 with all available updates, upstream LTSP packages are also updated to the latest snapshots. See this howto guide for setting up LTSP on openSUSE Edu. For more information see KIWI-LTSP portal page.

The ISO image can be used to create a live DVD or a bootable USB stick. If you intend to install it for everyday use, you need round about 20GB of disk space, the install will take about 10GB. More information about this image including known issues and their workarounds can be found here.

For enhancement requests, bugs or just saying hello to us, see “Communicate” here.

And don’t forget to have a lot of fun…

    I have two questions regarding OpenSUSE Edu Li-f-e 11.4 update.

    1) The download link does not say if it is a 32 bit or a 64 bit version and I could not find where to select which version I wanted. Since 32 bit is more common, I assume what is on the DVD is 32 bit. I need the 64 bit version. How do I get it?

    2) In the announcement, it says that the DVD contains all the software of the official release plus some extra software. When I downloaded the official version, when it first came out, the DVD contained about 4.3 GB of data. The DVD for OpenSUSE Li-f0e 11.4 only contains 3.1 GB. It has to be missing some packages from the original version.

    Thanks

    • @Philippe, We do not release 64bit version, you can use kernel-pae if you have more than 3G RAM, there is no performance benefit of using 64bit for day-to-day use. Regarding second question, that is what the magic of clicfs allows us to do, there is almost 10G of softwares installed on the hard disk once uncompressed.

      Enjoy :)

    The link talks about i686, so it´s 32-bit.

    a 64-bit version seems to not exist. Please ask the Edu-team about more details, I just published the article on news.o.o for them.

    good luck,
