Announcing the release of openSUSE Edu Li-f-e 12.3-1

May 8th, 2013 by

openSUSE Education Team is proud to present Li-f-e (Linux for Education) 12.3-1. This first release is based on openSUSE 12.3 with all the official updates applied. Li-f-e incorporates the latest stable versions of all popular desktop environments such as KDE, Gnome and Cinnamon. It includes wide range of software catering to everyone’s needs from the openSUSE Education repository, multimedia from the Packman repository, development tools, and KIWI-LTSP -that allows normal PCs or diskless thin clients to network boot from a server running Li-f-e and lot more. Everything you need to make your computer useful is available right out of the box as soon as Li-f-e is installed on it.

Get it from here:Direct Download | Torrents | Metalinks | md5sum

Since this edition is based on openSUSE 12.3, all the official 12.3 updates, repositories from build service and Packman can be used to install additional software and keep it udpated.

Minimum hardware requirement are 1GB of RAM and 15GB free disk space. Installation from a USB stick will take about 40 minutes to complete depending on hardware capabilities. From a DVD it takes much longer. Check this howto for creating live USB stick on vfat partition or other GUI and terminal ways.

Here is the sample of some of the software available on the iso. A complete list of packages with version numbers is listed here.

This time, we also have an openSUSE Edu Li-f-e 12.3 64bit version in SUSE Studio – if you want to give it a try, download the ISO image or log in and run the image via “Testdrive” in your local browser! (Please note that 64bit edition has not been through a rigorous QA.)

Test reports are always welcomed – if you encounter any problems, feel free to contact us via any way mentioned in our wiki or write a bug report.

Have a lot of fun!

Your openSUSE Education Team
