Experience: Open SUSE 10.1

June 8, 2006 § Leave a comment

4 hours into the install of Open SUSE 10.1, it's a Work In Progress. Nothing much to say about the install. It couldn't get any simpler or robust than this (except for maybe the Live CD approach, but that's a different paradigm altogether).

Trying to use Yast to manage packages, one becomes painfully aware that it's slow! Definitely faster than Yum though (shudder), but absolutely no contest to the zippiness of using Synaptic.

First order of business is to set up additional repositories following the excellent documentation presented here

Talk about priorities! Amarok's the first application to be updated!

There's more to try out yet, but I've been pampered a bit too much by PCLinuxOS !
