openSUSe 12.3 repository OSS URL

I’ m trying to install openSUSe 12.3 but I can’t find the correct repository URL.
I was trying with](http://*)http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/12.3/repo/oss
with no luck.
Thanks

12.3 reached end of life Jan 29th 2015 ( Lifetime - openSUSE Wiki ).

You could try The release ISO images of openSUSE 12.3 : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive 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?

linux since 1984
S.u.S.E./openSUSE since 1996

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