    I had a SuSE install disk once but never tried it, I wish I had now but I've lost the CD!

    I've tried Mandrake and RedHat.

    Same goes for me Rewandythal.
    Hey just had a look and goes what I found, SuSe Linux 6.4 (complete version with digital guide) and Slackware Linux 7.1.

    Man I'm even richer than I thought

    Focmaester, I would say go ahead. Always useful to have a complete guide, specialy if it has been written by someone who has been using it for 3 years.

    I'll be using it for sure. Keep on writting

    Suse through and through

    So I hate redhat..

    I've actually been using suse since 6.4 the only thing I didnt like about it was all the extra's (I'm a vanilla load type guy)

    that and the samba install provided was broken so you needed to reinstall before use (but then again a good admin ALWAYS patches everything before deployment) I ran it (7.0) for's backbone for quite a while nobody even knew we were on samba for the first four months. the features are rich, and its quite stable, Yast makes patches quick, and the server ran for a total of 283 days of uptime (shutdown only due to the company closing).

    as far as the debian post... (I'm a big debian nut!!! ) I do actually prefer suse over debian.... but then again maybe not..... Slak still takes it!! (I tole ya I'm a vanilla type guy)

    Wink I'v got suse 7.1

    Running SuSe 7.1 on 5 servers no problems here got squirrelmail 1.0.6 running and no probs here....

    Just the thing that debian is more stable and better.....

    But SuSe is so easy....

    No, I never got the time to test it. I did have a long discussion during HAL2001 with ppl. about SuSE and Debian.
    What I heard is " Debian is nice when you need to control a lot of machines over a network"
    What they meant by that exactly beats me.
    SuSE is very stable, I have tried RedHat, Mandrake and small floppy distro's as well. What I like about SuSE is when you buy the package you get so much documentation and a lot of packages.

    I use SuSE 6.4 as my primary operating system. I have used SuSE for many years for one reason, the mascot is nice looking. I do not see how it is any better than any other linux distribution. Each distribution contains the same crap. I would never even consider SuSE 6.4 for a production environment or for anything more than maybe a webserver or an email server, but that is just because it is linux. We use only solaris 8 at work for the servers, and i do all of my development in solaris. I also use solaris 8 at home on a blade 100. it is far superior to linux.

    I'm using SuSE 7.3 and it's very nice.
    Easy & complete, reliable & secure.
    I prefer it over Mandrake & RedHat
