A new SuSE is always interesting in the way that life-threatening sports are interesting. It might seem to be going along just fine, but in an instant disaster can strike.
So it was with the usual wariness that I put Suse 8.1 on a machine here. Nor was it just any old machine -- it was the one my wife uses. (Hey, you think I'm crazy enough to put it untested on my machine?)
I'm pleased to report that but for a couple of bumps, it went surprisingly well.
I just switched over to SuSE 8.0 Pro after using MDK for awhile. I enjoy it but have a minor question: on my current distro, for some reason, they do not include "locate"!! You have to install a utility and then run "locatedb", etc, etc. Do not understand the logic of that at all. Has that been changed on 8.1? Appreciate the article - especially about placing the home directory separately - did not know that. I am looking forward to trying the new version. Thanks!
