Try if you want 10.0

The bittorrent download seems pretty quick now that the initial rush is over.

Bob list Suse 10.0 official in 5cd set

Is there a difference between it and the open Suse 10.0

For those of us who cannot download Suse 10.0 Suse 10.0 official is much cheaper.

Suse Official has some proprietory applications.

No duplication from me.

That is in the FAQ at the site. About it being cheaper, I'm unsure how a free download can get cheaper. If you are on dialup, ask a broadband buddy to fetch it.

I haven't tried re-enabling a Nvidia ethernet port that didn't work in Suse 9.2, but may try that later. For now I just use a spare PCI Intel NIC.

The install was (again) the usual press the return key affair and smoother than prior versions. I installed the 64-bit version so we'll see what this beast will do.

SUSE-10.0-EvalDVD-x86_64-GM is the DVD
3 days @ average of 20k/sec WOW!
Novell says it's not different than cd version
no expiration all the proprietary stuff included

No problems at all except had to swap cd and dvd drive cables to install as it kept looking at the cd drive for software packages

Found all hardware

further testing ongoing

Mozilla Firefox problem
by null. / October 12, 2005 8:18 AM PDT

Thinking out loud

I haven't quite got a handle on whats happening
but sometimes the browser window will not close by any means other than command shell and killing app.

Seems to happen most when I am using VNC to work on another machine via browser or editing bookmarks

Java maybe ???

The version of firefox is 1.06 isn't the current version 1.07

I dunno yet

I already downloaded and installed SuSE 10 and Firefox was working perfectly. Almost Everything was(except a KDevelop bug.) Anyways, an update is already available for Firefox via YOU.

Hope this helps.

Updated - ok

Seems good now

Unrelated to updating - the screensavers do not work
it doesn't matter which one I've selected until now. The only effect is a blank screen.

680 Watt PSU
NF325-A7 Motherboard
Athlon 64 3700+
Geforce 2 Ti200
Windows 2000 and Suse 64 10.0 dual boot.

The only real difference I see is the video card. That TNT is a little dusty.
