    When running 11 beta 2, because it is subscribed to the factory repositories, do you need to install beta 3, or does updating from the factory repo make what is on the computer already beta 3?

    Please take a look at your link for the article on “Duncan Mac-Vicar P.: yum and ZYpp speed / memory usage”. It seems to be going to the wrong place.

      It seems like anytime someone expresses ill words about another distribution it gets removed. Not that Duncan Mac-Vicar did that, but someone mentioned on his blog did. I don’t know if it’s coincidental, or if this site is being censored.

      The blog is at: http://duncan.mac-vicar.com/blog/

      If this site is being censored, then changing the link truly lowers the quality of the site more than leaving the link there.

      True, people from Fedora, Ubuntu, and other distributions contribute to openSUSE and visa versa. And because this sharing of code and knowledge is so vital to the existence and prosperity of all Linux distributions, including openSUSE, then we should welcome them and learn from them instead of irrupting into a mud fight. I know there is the “Guiding Principles” on this site, but either this philosophy needs to be reiterated before allowing the whole world (young, old, nice, angry, smart, stupid) onto the site to write whatever they want, or make links to other discussion boards easily available from anywhere on this site.

      And for SUSE’s sake,
      Have a lot of fun, damn it!

        Thanks Curious.

        Funny, doesn’t seem to be anything to get up in arms about. Surely it’s not politically incorrect yet to compare programs and report your results.

        It would be a strange way to censor it… I guess it’s more a case of wrong copy and past ;)

      What is inspiration:

      1. an inspiring or animating action or influence: I cannot write poetry without inspiration.
      2. something inspired, as an idea.
      3. a result of inspired activity.
      4. a thing or person that inspires.
      5. Theology.
      a. a divine influence directly and immediately exerted upon the mind or soul.
      b. the divine quality of the writings or words of a person so influenced.
      6. the drawing of air into the lungs; inhalation.
      7. the act of inspiring; quality or state of being inspired.

      Corrected, tnx!

    Life is about humility for the smart and the stupid.

    We all slip on ice.

    Live with it.

    Don’t put a plug in your ass and deny that you’re human!

    If you can’t, you’re too uneducated to know how to breath.

    Yay! openSUSE 11.0 beta 3 is already available for download!

    If I install beta 3 now, when final version is released, will it be enough to update packages from release repository, or will we need to re-install from the release media?
