openSUSE-Education 1.0 for SLE10 and 11.1

December 22nd, 2008 by

The first version of the openSUSE-Education Add-on is drawing to a close. By releasing the final version for SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 and the first Release Candidate for 11.1, we hopefully have the first community Add-On media which is available for each (open)SUSE Release, soon!

The only thing left to reach this great goal: fix the last bugs for the openSUSE 11.1 release!

So please help us releasing a bugfree openSUSE-Education release 1.0 for 11.1 in the next days by testing and reporting bugs in our bugzilla. (Note: The next release should be the final one for 11.1 – and the completion of our 1.0 version.)

You can either use our Online-Repository by adding it via the “Community-Repositories” Section in YaST or via the “Add-on”-YaST module – or use the ISO-Image (2.6GB) as “non online” version. Both contain the same packages.

The RC1 release contains a lot of package updates (and fixes) – a complete Changelog for all packages is available in the root-directory of our installation source. There are still 10 packages left in the Build Service  which needs fixes to build for 11.1 – hopefully we get them fixed soon enough for the final release.

Thesis on openSUSE Published

May 24th, 2008 by

A year’s research on Novell and the openSUSE project is now published as a master’s thesis at the University of Oslo. “Managing Firm-Sponsored Open Source Communities” details the collaboration between Novell and the openSUSE community. Community members and employees in Novell have participated in the study.

The study deals with the tension between openness and control often found in projects that mesh corporate entities with the open source community. On the one hand, Novell wants to enable participation and contributions from external contributors, but cannot turn over full
control to the community because it produces its enterprise product from openSUSE.

The study finds that the relationship between the community and Novell is evolving rapidly, and how the relationship works and where it may go.

A summary of the study, the full thesis, and pictures are available at Jan Fredrik’s Weblog.
