    12.3 reached end of life Jan 29th 2015 ( https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime ).

    You could try https://archive.org/details/opensuse-12.3_release but I can't vouch for it's integrity.

    You'll no longer find it on http://download.opensuse.org

    What do you advise to install on a old hardware machine (Pentium M 1.73 GH) with only 1 GB RAM ?

    Depends upon exactly what you want to achieve...

    Leap 42.3 as an absolute minimum ( https://en.opensuse.org/Hardware_requirements ) requires 1.6 GHz or higher processor, 1 GB physical RAM. You _might_ get away with it by using a minimal install and iceWM or LXDE, but I'm not too sure it would be practical.

    Perhaps others can offer better suggestions, but if you want a distro that's still supported you'd probably be better off looking at something like "LinuxLite" https://www.linuxliteos.com/ or "Puppy Linux" http://puppylinux.com/

    Hi
    It's only a 32bit CPU..... no Leap only Tumbleweed with say xfce or similar... can you stick more RAM in it to get to 1.5 or 2 GB?

    Yes, there is the OSS repo, but that is it. None of the (security) updates since release date.
