openSUSE 11.1 Released : Discussion Thread​


The openSUSE Project is proud to announce the release of openSUSE 11.1. The openSUSE 11.1 release includes more than 230 new features, improvements to YaST, major updates to GNOME, KDE, OpenOffice.org, and more freedom with a brand new license, Liberation fonts, and openJDK. This is also the first release built entirely in the openSUSE Build Service.


  1. The new 2.6.27.7 Linux kernel which adds support for a number of new devices and improved video camera support
  2. An unmatched remote desktop experience with Nomad
  3. A simpler license that eliminates the EULA and removes software which previously made it difficult to redistribute openSUSE
  4. Improvements to YaST®, openSUSE's system administration and installation suite, including an improved partitioner, new printer module, and a new module to check system security
  5. Latest versions of major applications including Firefox* 3.0.4, OpenOffice.org 3.0, GNOME* 2.24.1, KDE 4.1.3 + KDE 3.5.10 and Mono® 2.0.1
  6. Most recent versions of GNOME and KDE:
  7. GNOME improvements include updates to the powerful Nautilus file manager, simplified managing and editing of photos with F-Spot, enhanced synchronization with BansheeTM and mobile devices and better communication tools with Pidgin, the IM client, a VoIP client for video chat and the Totem movie player for YouTube videos and digital television
  8. KDE 4.1.3 includes improvements to Plasma, the Dolphin file manager, KDE-PIM suite, Kwin desktop effects enabled by default, power management with Powerdevil and OpenStreetMap integration with Marble
  9. Increased productivity with OpenOffice 3.0 Novell® Edition, which includes a word processor, presentation creator, spreadsheet creator, and the ability to read and write to all Microsoft* Office files
  10. Further improvements to software management through improvements to the zypper/libzypp utilities

Brand new license? I'm interested in reading that.

Hope they have ironed out the rough edges from 11.0

i dislike Opensuse for 3 reasons
1.Did anyone able watch television channels through TV tuner card in any form of linux,none of the software included in Opensuse has option to select INDIA as a country?
2.Lack of inbuilt codecs to play Dvd movies
3.NO compiz fusion for my system(with VIA display chipset)
Neglecting this.
the presence old wide range of programming support,Compiz fusion.

Select your broadcast signal as PAL

2.Lack of inbuilt codecs to play Dvd movies

Yes, that's because of legal restrictions. You can enable them easily by searching on Google or going through my threads on packages - see the FAQ in the Open Source section.

3.NO compiz fusion for my system(with VIA display chipset)

Really don't know about Via

See this thread for VIA

^ Great catch! I would add another:

4. I dislike openSUSE 'cause it doesn't come with a free Goa trip offer.

and this is the worst thing about it:

5. openSUSE doesn't wiggle its tail. Why 'O, why?

This is all pure FUD.

1) I have watched TV for 2 years on my Linux, I can provide screenshots if you want. The lack of 'INDIA' is not a problem of the distro, but the lack of contributors from India to the respective TV program. I used to set frequency as PAL and country as France to watch TV.

2) as Nucluekore said.

3) Ask Compiz Devs.

Don't post if you got nothing to contribute to the topic.

Cut it Yamaraj.

A few screens to put the TV thing into perspective. This was on my 2 year old Linux(Fedora).

Unreal Tournament gaming along with TV watching.


TV with Compiz


So you see it's not all just small talk. It actually works. Be it on OpenSUSE or any other distro, you have to know how to make it work. And it's OpenSUSE we are discussing, so let's carry that on.

@sganesh: use tvtime in any distro, it is simple to use. and if you compare video quality with windows based softwares, specially in channels like CNBC with fast mooving text, you will never use windows based tv programs
