SUSE Linux 10.0 Final released

I just announced on opensuse-announce the final media of SUSE Linux 10.0 (called GM for GoldMaster). The first retail boxes have already been sent out to customers. The retail version includes the following benefits compared to the packages we put out on the ftp server:
  • 300 pages of printed manuals
  • physical media
  • installation support
Note that the big manuals are on the DVD, just the printed one is smaller.

We released these media today:

10.0-OSS - the Open Source (OSS) version:
  • i386 (Intel 32-bit, AMD 32-bit x86), x86_64 (AMD64, Intel EM64T) and ppc (PowerPC) architectures
  • 5 CDs for each architecture
  • experimental jigdo files to create i386 CDs and a DVD from the ftp trees
  • delta-ISOs from RC1 to the final version
10.0 - the retail and Eval versions including some non-OSS software:
  • i386, x86_64 architecture
  • 5 CDs i386
  • one i386 DVD with the contents of these 5 i386 CDs
  • one x86_64 DVD with the same packages as the i386 DVD
  • a LiveDVD for i386

Multi-arch ftp trees that can be used as YaST repositories and come with debuginfo and source RPMs:

  • inst-source: the OSS install tree
  • inst-source-java: the install tree for Java packages including Sun Java
  • inst-source-extra: some non-OSS packages (on
Developing 10.0 as part of the openSUSE project with an open bugzilla was a new and good experience. Thanks a lot to everybody that contributed with testing, reporting and fixing bugs,
discussions etc. in making SUSE Linux 10.0 a great distribution!

Today was still a bit of work to setup bittorrents and our server. Thanks to Adrian, Christian, Christoph and Roman this is now done.
