OpenSUSE 11.1 Access Secrets [pic]

OpenSUSE Linux 11.1

OK, so we’ve been chatting a bit about the upcoming release of OpenSUSE 11.1. If we throw an eyeball at the official OpenSUSE.org server, the newest thing available from the official OpenSUSE.org server is not a GM. When it is a GM, DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT FROM THAT SERVER. That only hogs bandwidth that they use to transfer it to the mirrors. Wait about 4 hours, and then pick your favorite mirror and pull it down from there.

But unless I get a personal email from Stephan Kulow or Andreas Jaeger or Michael Loeffler, stating otherwise, I’m reasonably sure that the OpenSUSE 11.1 GM is not publicly available, yet.

However, now you know how to check for yourself for sure when it has been released. But if I catch you downloading from there the minute they put it on there, so help me….

Tell you what, though, if you really want to get some wicked screenshots from how OpenSUSE 11.1 will look, hop on your nearest moped and head over to http://news.opensuse.org/. There are previews of tons of stuff related to OpenSUSE 11.1, including this:

So we know the GM exists, but it’s the “Where’s Waldo?” element of it that still has my OCD in overdrive.
