Questions about opensuse 11.1 (?)

Hi all,

Just have a few questions that the well informed might be able to enlighten me on:

  1. Will opensuse 11.1 be LSB 4.0 compliant?
    LSB Roadmap - The Linux Foundation

  2. Is it intended for 11.1 to ship with opensysnc 0.40?
    OpenSync - Trac


I haven’t been following that, but, let’s take a look:
* Release of LSB 4.0

openSUSE 11.1 Schedule
* Thu, Nov 13: openSUSE 11.1 RC1 - snapshot release
* Thu, Nov 27: openSUSE 11.1 RC2 - snapshot release

So I doubt it, as packages will be frozen going into beta.

A way to track that is to look at the kernel change-logs @ The Linux Kernel Archives. There you will see they are working 2.6.27-rc6-git2 and the latest I have as of 2-days ago is 2.6.27-rc5-git5 (I think).
Anyway, click on the “Changelog” link & use the Firefox “Find” feature.

If and when it is added, it will eventually make it’s way into the release as a kernel update – although we may have to turn it on with a kernel config.

My 2-cents:P

cheers, but i thought that LSB cerification was largely a matter of configuration, something that big distros worked out in concert with the linux foundation, like suses move to change kde folders in response to an LSB standard?

in short i am hoping that it is happening now, and 11.1 will be LSB 4.0 compliant on release…

what about full support for Dirac?

is opensync still a novell sponsored project?

will 11.1 introduce support for rpm 4.6 as pioneered by Fedora in their upcoming 10 release?

No, it will not.

cheers for the info.

is that because suse is going down the ‘other’ rpm fork, or just a case of net yet?

any idea on the other questions?

many thanks

Case of “not yet”.

It will be interesting to see if anyone notices a difference with this latest version of RPM. As I look at the list and the fedora stuff now it looks like it’s just a bit more efficient.

I guess it will hit for SLED 11

Any ideas on the other questions.

My thanks for the answers

As SLED11 will be based on openSUSE 11.1, rpm 4.6 will also be not in SLED11.

thank you, your time given answering my questions is much appreciated. :slight_smile:

now for the next:
Will 11.1 include the new intel vga driver 2.5 release which is due on monday?
[Phoronix] xf86-video-intel 2.4.98 Test Driver](
I am unsure as too whether the driver is tied to

I am thinking about getting a netbook in time for 11.1 and am naturally keen to see the latest intel driver included.

Many thanks

any news on the intel driver and opensysnc .40?

Thank you

any news on the intel 2.5 driver?

Not sure how to word this question, but here goes. In beta 3 when ever I boot the computer up durring the loading of opensuse I was getting two quick loud beeps from the computer tower. Is this normal? I’ve never had it happen before 11.1

bump - -any news on the Intel 2.5.1 driver? :slight_smile:
