    Default Packman is filling repos for 11.3

    For users of 11.3 pre-releases:

    Packman packages for 11.3 are here:
    Code:
    ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/linux/packman/suse/11.3
    Replace Packman's Factory repo with this one. Other package will appear here.

    Yes, I posted here:
    Packman repo edit - openSUSE Forums

    But they are going to take a while to catch up application wise, so I'm still using Factory

    We've just started, but we should be up to speed with the most important (= codec) packages really soon.
    As we have several thousands of packages, it will take a few weeks to have everything built for 11.3 though (hence after the 11.3 release).
    Our hardware resources are limited, unfortunately, and time is a scarce resource, even more so as it is completely done by volunteers during their spare time.

    But, as said, we're working on it :-)

    Cheers Packman people. Had some trouble on the broadcom driver. Trusting I would get it to work using ndiswrapper, I found out during an install, that a precompiled driver for the new kernel had been released. When install was finished I could pick it directly from the web, only issue during install solved. My son is completely in love with his new HP/Compaq mini running 11.3 with KDE4. He has a special playlist which contains specimina of media files of all types on his system, one of each, mp3, mp4, flac, ogg, flv and others, the playlist finishes completely, so codecs seem to be okay. Cheers once again.

    Well worth the short wait. Many thanks to packman contributors.

    could Packman use the openSuse Build Service? or it a question of
    things like proprietary codecs?

    Hi
    They do use there own OBS (You can install it locally yourself if you
    want) and yes it's the proprietary nature of the packages.
