    SuSE Releases 9.1 Personal ISO for FREE

    I was checking out Slashdot and here it is: this is awesome.. for some people.

    ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.1-personal-iso/

    Nice Job SuSE. You can use YaST to upgrade to the software apps that are commercial and not GPL'ed.

    Hmm, I read that it doesn't include a c compiler. Without the ability to compile from source it's not much use IMO. I know that the personal edition is stripped down, but surely that's a vital function they've excluded!

    if you can compile stuff using autotools, surely you can follow a guide to compiling gcc.

    You can always use YAST to get it.

    Worry not. Just install apt for SuSE 9.1, then all it takes is "apt-get install gcc".

    I am using that version of SuSE and it includes all the compiling tools needed/wanted/necessary. You may not have them installed, but that doesn't mean that they arent offered.

    Re:SuSE Releases 9.1 Personal ISO for FREE

    Ah! That's cool. I downloaded the iso to give it a go, but didn't want to hose my existing installation if I would be unable to compile from source.

    The main reason being that I use the speedtouchconf script to set up my internet connection, so I need it to be able to compile the driver.

    Re:SuSE Releases 9.1 Personal ISO for FREE

    Nope, no good to me. No GCC, hence no internet connection as I need to compile the driver for my modem. I tried installing GCC and immediately ran into a failed dependency. As I have no intention of rebooting between Windows and Suse until I've found and downloaded all the dependencies, this one is a loser IMO.

    Just glad I didn't buy it.
