Warning This article assumes that you are already familiar with RPM packages and the SUSE rescue system and know how to boot a SUSE system from the installation CD if necessary.Although unlikely, there is always a risk of losing data when updating to a major kernel version. Kernel 2.6 and related problems are not covered by the free installation support.
For SUSE LINUX 9.0, you only need to update the package file, and reboot.
On the software side, 9.0 includes KDE 3.1.4, Open 1.1, the k3b DVD and CD burning tool, and an enhanced collection of audio software.
A new Su SE System Doctor rescue system will restore a system following the unintentional destruction or deletion of system-critical files.
Su SE Linux announced today that it will release Su SE Linux 9.0 on October 24.
The latest version of the company's home user operating system will be the first to support AMD's Athlon 64 processor, and will include a test version of the 2.6 Linux kernel, according to Holger Dyroff, Su SE's general manager, Americas.
