openSUSE-LXDE 11.3 RC1 live-cd available for download

July 25th, 2010 by

After announcing few days ago the first beta of the openSUSE-LXDE live CD based on openSUSE 11.3, the openSUSE-LXDE team is proud to announce the openSUSE-LXDE 11.3 RC1 Live-CD.

The isos finally fit into a CD, the sizes are 666MB for the 32bit version and 680MB for the 64bit version.

While the betas versions was into the 0.0.x series (0.0.1, 0.0.2, ecc), this RC and the next ones (if needed) will be into the 0.x.y series (0.1.0, 0.1.1, 0.2.0, ecc)

Our goal is to provide as soon as possible a stable release that will be 1.0.0.

Please help us, test this iso, report any missing/un-needed package you find, any bug or issue.

If none will be reported, most probably this configuration will be rebuilt as 1.0.0 and released to the public as STABLE.

Rember users root and linux has NO password.

The iso, as usal is hybrid and persistent, so if copied into a USB pendrive, at the first boot it will expand and create a read-write folder were you can save your datas.

Download as usual, is available under X11:lxde project here:

    I have been playing around with this for about two weeks. I have installed this (not once, but 3 or 4 times) on a Dell Inspiron 2500 Laptop with 320 MB of RAM. So this should be a good test for an older machine. So far, the major struggle has been with getting the wireless Network card to work with the native drivers.

    The only quirk I have noticed is that the File Manager does not always automatically unmount a device when it is ejected. At least I thought it was supposed to be unmounted automatically. This makes the same drive (e.g., cd drive) not see the next disk that is inserted. I don’t think this is an opensuse issue but rather a quirk of the File Manager in LXDE.

    However, it has been very stable. The main use of this laptop is for web access and to provide a network connection to another computer in a part of my house not wired for network access (through a shared internet connection).

    So for the first time, I have been able to install openSUSE on this machine. This is great! Thanks for all your hard work.
