I am considering purchasing an iMac 27-inch for my web development business; of course, linux-compatibility is a major issue for me. I know that Linux has been run successfully on various models of the iMac, including the 27 inch version, but of late it seems that the Linux graphic driver universe is going through a tough time.
Hi, when I try booting openSUSE 11.3 KDE-Live CD, graphical system doesn't load. System is an Apple iMac 27" Intel Core i5 with an ATI HD4850 card. I've tried nomodeset and x11failsafe modes with same result: Screen on black. Xorg.0.log says:
[ 106.887] (EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)
I can't get this iMac to boot to the live CD. It is a iMac 4.1, 2 Ghz Intel Core Duo, with ATI Radeon X1600 video . I tried the 32 bit, the 64 bit, and the 64 bit-AMD for MAcs. Can anyone point me to the proper ISO image, none of these will boot. This is a fairly old iMac, probably around 2006-07 era.
OpenSUSE 13.1, a free and Linux-based operating system for PCs, laptops, or servers that you can use to surf the web, manage your e-mails and photos, do office work, and play videos or music, will become the next Evergreen version.
The developers of OpenSUSE have decided that the 13.1 version will be the next Evergreen release, which is actually the next long-term support distribution.
The openSUSE Travel Support Team is happy to announce that they are ready to process applications to sponsor community members to attend the openSUSE Summit and the openSUSE Conference as well as COSCUP. Thanks to the sponsors of both conferences, travel budgets are available and we call out for all participants to whom costs are a significant issue to consider applying for travel support.
