Announcing the release of openSUSE Edu Li-f-e 12.3.1

May 8th, 2013 by

openSUSE Education Team is proud to present Li-f-e (Linux for Education) 12.3-1, this first release is based on openSUSE 12.3 with all the official updates applied. Li-f-e incorporates latest stable versions of all popular desktop environments such as KDE, Gnome and Cinnamon, it includes wide range of softwares catering to the needs of everyone, selection from openSUSE Education repository, multimedia from the Packman repository, development tools, KIWI-LTSP allowing normal PC or diskless thin clients to network boot from a server running Li-f-e and lot more. To summarize, everything you need to make your computer useful is available right out of the box as soon as Li-f-e is installed on it.

Get it from here:Direct Download | Torrents | Metalinks | md5sum

As this edition is based on openSUSE 12.3, all the official 12.3 updates, repositories from build service and Packman can be used to install additional softwares and keep it up to date.

Minimum hardware requirement is 1GB of RAM and 15GB free disk space. Installation from USB stick will take about 40 minutes to complete, from a DVD it takes much longer. Check this howto for creating live USB stick on vfat partition or other GUI and terminal ways.

Here is the sampling of some of the softwares available on the iso. Complete list of packages with versions here.

This time, we also have an openSUSE Edu Li-f-e 12.3 64bit version in SUSE Studio – if you want to give it a try, just download the ISO image or log in and run the image via “Testdrive” in your local browser! (Please note that 64bit edition has not gone through rigorous QA.)

Test reports are always welcome – if you encounter any problems, feel free to contact us via any way mentioned in our wiki or write a bugreport.

Have a lot of fun…

Your openSUSE Education Team
