SuSE, openSUSE Yesterday, Novell released a pre-release of its much-anticipated SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop 10, actually the 3rd release candidate. This release contains all the much-touted stuff such as Xgl and its fancy effects, Beagle integration, and more. Read on for some first impressions.

Practical question

I assume you can still install the kitchen sink if you want to.

BTW, surprisingly, you can't download it if you're a resident of Afghanistan. So much for wanting to help rebuild the country ;)

Anyway, practical question of saving plastic and time: do you really need all 5 installation cds? It seems a bit excessive...can I do with just the first 2?

It's in the review: you need 4 CDs for the default installation. I did not burn the 4th CD, however, so the 2 packages from CD4 are currently not installed on my system (it works fine though). I'll burn disc 4 and 5 when I've bought new CD-Rs.

No you dont, you only need 3 cd's for the default since I only burned 3.

If it's anything like the normal suse the first few will have the installer and rpm's and the last few cd's will have the source packages. So with a bit of luck you'll get by with just the first 2.

Edit: never mind *points up to Thom's comment*
