OpenSuSE 11.1 Released Today

Yesterday, the folks over at announced that the latest version of OpenSuSE will be released today at 13:00 GMT (which translates to 8 a.m. today). If you are a fan of OpenSuSE, or are interested in Linux, you should check it out.

I’m definitely going to download the release when I get to work this morning and install it on VirtualBox. I’ll have to see how it performs before deciding whether or not to replace Mandriva 2009 with OpenSuSE 11.1 as my third operating system (the other two being Windows Vista Home Premium and Linux Mint Elyssa) on my home computer.

  • I have created a Multimedia Pack portable for OpenSUSE, the included programs and codecs are:

    1) VLC
    2) Mplayer
    3) Smplayer
    4) Amarok
    5) DVD::RIP
    6) K9copy
    7) Avidemux
    8.) ffmpeg
    9) w32codec
    10) Gstreamer *
    11) K3B – K3BCodec
    12) Libdvdcss
    13) xine – libxine1*
    14) Kdvdcreator
    15) Winff
    16) mjpegtools
    17) Acetoneiso

    you can install any of the above without internet, they include all the dependencies, just unzip the both files into a folder named MMP2009 and create a repository from that folder as a simple rpm folder in yast, then make a search in the yast installer with the name of the program and check it to install it, this is very important if you don`t have internet at home, and besides, by default Open Suse doesn`t include several codecs due to license matters.

    I created a blog about the MMP2009 where you can download the pack:
