I checked Novell Yes Certified list and see HP 550 in the list, but it is tested using SLED 10 with SP2, so I wonder is SLED 10 SP2 similar to Opensuse 10.3 with all updates? I have good experience with Opensuse 10.3, despite the old softwares, it is the best version of Opensuse I’ve used, even 11.x has more or less problems.
I also noticed the 550 model in the list has lower configuration, CPU should not be a problem, the biggest problem should be the video card, my 550 has X3100, is it supported by Opensuse 10.3?
Thanks a lot!
edit: Is opensuse 10.3 still supported? Do i still get security updates? What about using build service to update? How much stability do I lost for using build service? Thanks!
As to your edit… build service works fine, however lots if maintained by individuals so I guess it might differ per repository as well… my experiences have been good. Not sure, but I think 10.3 is still supported for now. Would be wise to stick to the latest though so you wont be facing ‘the end of support’ any time soon.
