Service Pack ISO images for OpenSuse 11.2

downloading new OSes is such a *****

Can you have service pack ISO images including

Should be like 175 MB tops.

You’re a lot like Windows and that’s why I like you.

Well Linux is not Windows as they say. They have their method, while openSUSE and Linux has theirs. And, I do not have to wait to the first Tuesday of each month to get my fixes that are required. The whole system of openSUSE does not work the same.

The amount of updates you can get in openSUSE verses what you really need will be determined by how many software repositories you have added to open SuSE. Some want to get the very latest update while others think this is too much and taking a chance of hurting a perfectly working system. If you purchased SLED (SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop), there are service updates, but the whole thing is designed to NOT be updated daily.

You might want to look at the following Link. And, if no one else has paid you welcome, welcome to the openSUSE forums.

Linux is NOT Windows

Thank You,

we don’t have “service packs” in openSUSE…perhaps you have the
commercial product named SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (or Server)
(aka SLED or SLES) version 11, with i can guess has now a “Service
Pack Two” (or some such available)

if that is what you have then give a shout over to forums.novell.com
(where the SLE_ gurus hang out)

Oh dear, did we leave the BSoD and malware emulators in by accident? lol!

At least make some GUI front ends that patch a kernel automatically just by downloading a linux kernel file. The terminal commands don’t work at all. It should look like those cracks on warez sites. It should be so easy…a cave man can do it!

You put in Yast, and now-a-days feels like Control Panel. That’s why you’re in 3rd place after Ubuntu and Fedora, remember?

if that is your experience on your machine i guess you need to begin
again with a fresh format and install…that is to say, it is normal
for all terminal commands to work perfectly, every
time…dependable, predictable and stable…

it is extremely easy…too simple actually…once you read and follow
the manuals and documentation…of which there is tons…

cracks on warez i know nothing about…

yes, enjoy the ease…or, are you here to blow off steam?

Ubuntu 9.1 has a GUI option under administration

Click on System > Administration > Update Manager > Click on Check button > Apply all updates including kernel.

It’d be fine if you don’t apply all the updates and just update the kernel. Updates are too large of a download.

Ubuntu Linux: Upgrade Linux Kernel

Do this in Yast, plz.

Two options, learn to use YaST, it has the update option or just stay
with *buntu, openSUSE is good as is, not trying to copy all *buntu or
Fedora things. Also you can use “zypper dup”
