    Default Where is GNOME3 Respin? AS PROMISED

    Hi Guys,

    Below is the link that promises that the OpenSUSE release the Gnome 3 respin the day Gnome 3 is released.

    openSUSE:GNOME features - openSUSE

    Gnome 3 released yesterday but I see there is n activity so far in terms of re-spin. Please let me know if I'm missing something or the re-spin is not going to take place anymore. I was eagerly waiting for the GNOME3 so that I can use the respin version of OpenSUSE.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for the links, but what my understanding with the RE-SPIN is, there should be an official ISO with the GNOME3 and should be available on the download page. If you look at the Fedora website you'll see the different spins where the main spin is GNOME, similarly openSUSE has two main SPINS KDE and GNOME. Now when the mention about the RE-SPIN it means that either the GNOME version will be upgraded to the GNOME 3 or a new SPIN will be released with GNOME 3. What you have on the links I'm not sure its 100% supported by openSUSE, this is something TRY out ISOs.

    The reason I'm asking here its because, openSUSE team said that the RE-SPIN will be available on the day when GNOME 3 released, I'm ok with the links you have as long as its not the statement given on the 11.4 release. I think they should not mention the release of RE-SPIN version, this makes alot of confusion, instead they should mention that the GNOME 3 environment will be available on the GNOME website to try the GNOME 3 and it will not be fully supported until the next release.

    What I want to know is what's a SPIN???

    Also it takes time to test and get things into the pipeline.

    i read the cite in your first message and i do not see any use of the
    word "promise" nor the number "11.4" or "openSUSE download page"..

    so i ask: from where did you get your understanding that the openSUSE
    community would release a new 11.4 iso with GNOME 3 on
    software.opensuse.org and on the same day??

    not challenging, just asking where and who said that--because, since
    this is a forum of users helping users with their install, boot or login
    (and almost completely devoid of developers) i think you should ask the
    developers or community spokspersons who made the promise you cite in
    your question...and, not the users here..

    on the other hand, if you have a problem with the install, boot or login
    of openSUSE released software, you _are_ in the correct place to ask
    those questions..

    I tried the gnome .iso's from
    Index of /repositories/GNOME:/Medias/images/iso

    They are based on 11.4 and are basically that with gnome 3

    But I had trouble booting, had to use TEXT mode and install isn't booting.

    I can see it in the middle of the page, of course without any "promise".

    @anantg
    Did you read the very first sentence on that page:
    "This page is meant to be a brainstorming area for features to focus on for
    GNOME in openSUSE 11.4"
    BRAINSTORMING != PROMISE

    oh no! it *does* say 11.4

    and, in today's news: "For openSUSE users, GNOME 3 will be available
    next week from the GNOME Stable repository. The GNOME team wants to
    ensure it is stable before unleashing it on you all. Of course,
    experimental packages are available already, see link above."

    Guys,

    First of all I would like to apologies for using word "PROMISE" its not exactly promise but it was very close to promise, I mean after reading that line on the above link it seems like the openSUSE will have it available for 11.4 on the day GNOME 3 release

    @martin_helm
    I did read the very first line but I would like to say that there is another line just after it that says "This page lists a subset of features from openFATE that are in consideration for inclusion in openSUSE 11.4" and if you look at the "openSUSE GNOME 3 respin" section its in "Work In Progress" so it means they are going to include it in 11.4.

    Well, Ijust saw the today's openSUSE news and it seems that the official repo will be available next week. So I think its worth to wait.
