I signed up for the Google Code-In Project for OpenSUSE today, as my task is to get 20 people to fill up a survey about public opinion of OpenSUSE, Daniweb seemed a natural starting point to me due to the high density of people with computer expertise Here is the link for the survey [URL="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&pli=1&formkey=dHQ4U1NnTFVBck9XTHpQZGVITGJuQmc6MQ#gid=0"]https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&pli=1&formkey=dHQ4U1NnTFVBck9XTHpQZGVITGJuQmc6MQ#gid=0[/URL]. Please enter My username "genghis" and your name after you finish the survey. Thank you.

For an assignment in a computer programming class, we have to install 3 linux distributions on one machine from three different trees. I chose to install Ubuntu, Fedora, and OpenSUSE. I already dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows 7, but I'm not sure about the partitioning. I have 460GB of space in my Windows partition (sda1), and 15GB in my Ubuntu partition (sda2), and was wondering how to go about partitioning for two more OSs (creating sda3 and sda4). I have 240GB of free space in my windows partition, and don't want to lose any data. I have backed up everything currently …

I've got Open SUSE 11.4 and Ubuntu 10.10 now installed on the same machine now, but I need to edit the GRUB so I can boot into them. I can boot into OpenSUSE fine, but since it overwrote the Ubuntu bootloader, I can't seem to get it to boot into it. I added an entry for Ubuntu after looking around the internet: [CODE]###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: none# title UBuntu 10.10 booting via symlinks root (hda0,4) kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda5 ro quiet splash initrd initrd.img[/CODE] In /boot/vmlinuz on the Ubuntu partition, I can find the following files, …

My "[URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story229382.html"]10 Best Linux Distributions of 2009[/URL]" list drew a bit of disdain from some of my readers, so I thought I'd make it up to them by posting a list of Linux distributions that [I]they[/I] like to use. Since I have no way of knowing which of these distributions is better or worse than the others, I've place them in alphabetical order instead of any real ranking based on quality, community, development cycle or other criteria. I want to show you, faithful reader, that I do indeed read your comments and take your feedback seriously. You have a voice …

It's been almost a year since I[URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story220028.html"] last interviewed [/URL] Joe 'Zonker' [URL="http://www.dissociatedpress.net/"]Brockmeier[/URL], who is the community manager at [URL="http://en.opensuse.org/OpenSUSE_11.2"]openSUSE[/URL]. I sent him several questions to answer by email. I was curious about the new version of openSUSE, 11.2, along with his increasing use of social media to promote it. I also wanted to know how people curious about open source operating systems could get started. [B]RM[/B]: What are some of the key features in the new version of openSUSE? [B]JZB[/B]: Free beer!

My good friend and partner in crime, [URL="http://blogs.zdnet.com/perlow"]Jason Perlow[/URL] is working on (as I'm writing this) a new Linux distribution that is Hyper-V ready. It is a modified OpenSUSE 11.1 that includes the Linux Integration Components (ICs) from [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Microsoft[/URL]. He'll have a link to it on his blog in a day or two for everyone to use. So, Jason is baking a new Linux distribution that he calls the Jason Server and he's using OpenSUSE because it's free and he can build a distribution easily on [URL="http://www.novell.com"]Novell[/URL]'s [URL="http://www.susestudio.com"]SUSE Studio[/URL]. The Linux ICs allow you to install Linux seamlessly onto a …

Prejudices and opinions aside, at some point in your career you'll be asked to select a viable Linux distribution for your corporate network. How will you choose? Will you use the same distribution that you use at home or will you do some research and find something that's corporate-ready? Are you up to the task? Do you know what to look for in a distribution to support a corporate environment? Here are 5 ways to decide on a Linux distribution for your corporate network. [B]1.

I've been in discussions with a group of other writers, Linux distribution watchers, Linux community leaders and developers in the past few days concerning Linux commercial vs. Linux community versions and some of us came to the conclusion that [URL="http://www.fedoraproject.org"]Fedora[/URL]'s relevance has waned. In fact, it might be time to scrap it completely. Or maybe it's time for [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat[/URL] to step up and support it formally and unconditionally. Fedora is the only major community Linux edition that has no commercial support option from its commercial benefactor. Even OpenSolaris has commercial support from [URL="http://www.sun.com"]Sun[/URL]. This brings me to the question, …

This coming Monday, May 11th, marks the start of the first annual [URL="http://news.opensuse.org/2009/05/07/get-ready-for-opensuse-community-week/"]openSUSE Community Week[/URL], an event conceived of by openSUSE community members to help mentor folks who want to get involved with the openSUSE open source Linux project, but don't know how to get started. The virtual conference will be conducted almost entirely in IRC and runs from May 11th through the 17th. I asked Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier, the openSUSE Community Manager (whom I interviewed in [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3677.html"]Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier Discusses openSUSE 11.1[/URL]) how it came together and what the virtual event entails.

Joe "Zonker"Brockmeier is the Community Manager for openSUSE. He has been involved with Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) since 1996 when he discovered FOSS while a college student and was hooked. For most of his career he has worked as a technology journalist covering Linux and open source topics. Most recently, he was Editor-in-Chief of Linux Magazine prior to joining Novell in February of 2008. I asked him about his role in bringing this release to light and how the open source community drives this type of project. [B]Tell me about your role as openSUSE community manager?[/B] Sure. The …

There are three Linux distributions that didn't make it into my [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3322.html"]top 10 list[/URL] of best Linux distributions but they are ones to watch.

Are you participating in Hack Week? That's Novell's open invitation to the world for suggestions on how to improve its openSuse Linux distro running through this Friday, Aug. 29. And you might just even win a prize. Calls for porting [URL=http://www.gnome.org/projects/tomboy/]Tomboy[/URL] to Windows (and maybe even Mac OS X), adding geocode filtering to RSS and fully supporting Amazon's Elastic Cloud 2 are just a few of the ideas put forth in this year's annual Hack Week.

Easier installation, 3D desktop effects, digital music and video management and an up-to-date OpenOffice are among the enhancements in openSUSE 11.0, which became generally available this week. Designed for the novice as well the advanced, installation options include a choice of Gnome 2.22 or KDE 4 desktop environments and the ability to boot from disc rather than the hard drive. Available now for [URL= http://software.opensuse.org/]download [/URL], openSUSE 11.0 adds [URL= http://www.compiz-fusion.org/]Compiz Fusion [/URL](version 0.7.4), a windowing system that resulted in the marriage of the Beryl composite window manager with the community-built Compiz Extras.

Where do you want to go in a few months? Windows 7? You'd be better off converting to Vista before holding your breath for that one. The Linux world keeps releasing new versions of its vendor-customized Operating System while the Windows world keeps waiting for more and more promises. While you're waiting, try out the new [URL="http://software.opensuse.org/developer"]OpenSuSE 11 RC1[/URL]. OpenSuSE 11 is the latest Linux entry to the world-at-large with its plethora of virtualization tools and software and the new KDE4 Window Manager. OpenSuSE's public release will no doubt garner its share of converts. It's faster, easier to install, and …
