Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Failed to provide a working network on 2 of 2 laptops: One net install from scratch, and another an upgrade of 42.2 also via net. Despite my longtime usage of SuSE since 4.1, it's finally jumped the shark. Package conflicts have always been a problem with SuSE upgrades, this just makes it worse.

I have yet to see how systemd, grub2 and other "improvements" are better than being able to debug init and menu.lst scripts.

My plan is to build one laptop with an as-yet undetermined Solaris clone so I can use ZFS for my USB drives, and the other will be a testbed for Qubes or one of the Linux distributions that doesn't use systemd.

Very beautiful, fast and stable system. However, I had problems with the package manager. It seems to never delete the software you uninstall. Thus I never noted how SUSE hat eaten 21 GB out of its 25 GB partition and when I tried to upgrade to Leap 42.3 some 500 MB were not enough. So I decided to tell the installation program (Yast) not to upgrade, but to remove Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird. And here it started. A long list of questions about dependences. I started initially to answer with “yes, uninstall’, but later I saw it offered to uninstall completely unrelated things including libre office and KDE plasma?!? I gave up, nut returning to installation summary I saw already not 500, but 900 MB space were not enough! I aborted the installation. No changes to the HDD had to be expected. I decided to remove Firefox and Thunderbird from within 42.1 itself. Firefox had few dependences and I let it uninstall. And there it started – the system uninstalled everything! Even Dolphin. I let it do just for curiosity. After that I installed Dolphin again – the partition free space had decreased with 2GB! Clean install of 42.3 on same formatted partition took only 4.7 GB. There is an option in the software manager to clean after changes. But i found it too late.
