    Default Missing 32-bit version of new openSUSE 42.1 :(

    Why is there no 32-bit version of new openSUSE 42.1?
    Will it be uploaded soon? When?

    My understanding is there will not be one officially.

    Too bad, guess 13.2 will stay on my 32-bit Mac for a while longer.

    Do someone know why there is no 32-bit version of openSUSE 42.1?

    Because the people that did the release consider it obsolete. x86_64 is around since 10 years already.

    And SLE12 (on which Leap is partly based) is only available for 64bit too.

    It might become available as part of the "Ports" though, like ARM and PPC.
    (if volunteers step up to do it)

    It is a MacBookPro1,1, and yes, it turns 9 years old really soon. It has a 64-bit processor and 32-bit EFI firmware, and so has been limited to 32-bit OSes (like MacOS X 10.6 was the last one Apple supported for it).
    But I wonder if some chainloading could be done with rEFInd and a GRUB install on the openSUSE partition. Hmmm...

    But anyway, scouring the internet hasn't been extremely helpful other than planting the above idea in my head.

    Yes, but it costs resources to build it (both human and technical).

    As I wrote, a 32bit version of Leap might be available as "Port".

    And there's still 13.1 and 13.2 (both are still supported for a while), and even Tumbleweed (the rolling distribution) comes as 32bit flavor.


    This mean only one thing - FU developers and BYE BYE openSUSE and WELCOME ANOTHER DISTRIBUTION (maybe Mageia or Fedora?)!!!
    Watch your tone, please.

    Feel free to volunteer for (helping with) creating a 32bit Leap.
    openSUSE is a *community* distribution. *Everybody* is (or can be) a developer as well.

    Thanks for telling me "FU"...

    What does it mean? What is "Port"?

    It's a version of openSUSE for a not-officially-supported platform.

    A "Port" already exists for ARM and PPC (13.2 at least, Leap not yet I think), one for x86 would be possible too.
    And probably even easier as all the packages are still built and published for x86 too in Tumbleweed.
