Alpha1 for openSUSE 10.2 and 10.3 is ready for testing!

As described in the openSUSE-Education Roadmap, we have finished our first Alpha Version for openSUSE 10.2 and 10.3 this week!

As already stated in the name of the release: this should be the first really useful release for 10.3 (and hopefully also for 10.2) - but it is really NOT ready for productional use! This is a very early development snapshot and perhaps things will change later. But we can only make things better, if someone told us what we've missed. So please test this Alpha1 very heavy and the next relase will hopefully fix all your problems.

The path to the ISO images:


You can find the MD5SUMS for the ISOs in this file:

If your browser doesn't support large files (bot ISOs are more than 1.8G big(!), you can also use any FTP-Client. The URL for FTP is:


All files from the ISO images can also be accessed online. So you can also add the following URLs to YaST as Online-Repositories if you don't want to download the full ISO images:


Please use our Bugzilla to report any bug you find.

Welcome to Peter Varkoly

Peter, Welcome and Thank You! It is a great pleasure to welcome another member with your talents and design capabilities to this very important community project. I hope that our new association brings many great things to schools everywhere. Again Thank you.

Changes from BrainShare

At BrainShare, this has been the best week of my professional career! I have met so many wonderful and dedicated people from Novell and from the K12 community, that to list them would be to much like "name dropping", I Have to thank David Brower and the K12 marketing team for the hand holding I got through the team introductions an for everything they will do and have done for us this year!

Changes from 2007-02-18

While searching for K12 solutions and student management stacks I found this: "Intel and Linux go to School" and this: "Enhancing education with Intel plattforms running Open Source Solutions". It seems we are not the only ones interested in creating a stack for education! Intel certainly believes and so does IBM.

Left to say: watch the official Education website from Novell.

Changes from January 2007

January has been a long cold month, we all have been working on our own things. I hope that soon we will have more forward movement on this project. I'm told that this spring will bring alot of interested people to the table. can't wait :)!

Changes from 2006-12-29

Great week off, we hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! A big Welcome to David Brower of Novell's Education Marketing team. I know he is going to be a great resource!

Changes from 2006-12-15

New packages added to both the Server and Desktop repositories. Minor updates to page content and a new contributer joined: welcome Fajar Priyanto, I hope your visits are always fruitful!

Changes from 2006-12-01

Lars Rupp joins us from the openSUSE staff as a "packager" and "site guide". Lars was working on maintaining Moodle for openSUSE and has offered to make those packages available here. As an experienced member of the openSUSE team he will bring a strong background of project management to this page.
