openSUSE 10.2 goes Gold

by @ 9:41 am. Filed under SUSE News

Here’s the word from Andreas Jaeger:

We’ve mastered yesterday openSUSE 10.2 RC5 and declared it as

Looking at the comments on the opensuse mailing list and on the
websites I hear that 10.2 could become a "great distribution". I hope
it does and like to thank all of you for your part in it, especially
* Translating software in even more languages than before
* Testing openSUSE 10.2
* Reporting bugs and fixes
* Maintaining packages in our openSUSE build service that got synced
into the distribution (I know the sync is a manual process now and
I’m looking forward to improvements)
* Helping others testing 10.2
* Suggestions on how to improve 10.2

Our build folks have created the first set of ISO images and will
continue to create all of them – and the complete ftp distribution –
early next week. We’ll start syncing soon the images to the ftp
mirrors so that they have all files on thursday, 7th December, for the

CD production is starting now and I hope to see some shiny green
openSUSE 10.2 boxes on the shelves before Christmas.

There are still a lot of bugs open for 10.2 and I’m sure real usage
over the time will find some more. We will release via online update
security updates for 10.2 as usual and release also the most severe
bug fixes. But most bug fixes will only be done for 10.3, our next
release coming out next summer.

You will not see much of me during the next weeks. I’ll be visiting
our Prague development team next week with limited email access and
afterwards go on vacation. I’d like to thank Adrian for taking care
of releasing 10.2 to the public!

Thanks again to all of you for making openSUSE 10.2 possible and a


Very nice. I can’t possibly wait.

    This is such great news 🙂 I have a laptop with Suse 10.1 which I installed myself, I’d love to try the new version, I would just need to remember how to copy my home directory to the new installation. The last time I did so the permissions were quite broken. 🙂 Will you be doing an update to your Guide for this version Scott?

    LOL the Linux Reliability Myth gave me a quick chuckle 😛

    Are those actual Linux “BSoD” screens?
