LinuxPR: SuSE Linux 6.2 Release Debuts August 9

Jul 24, 1999, 06:20 (4 Talkback[s])

"Over 1300 applications and utilities on six CD-ROMs -- even more software at the same price as the previous version..."

"The 1300 applications in the distribution include updates of applications previously released on SuSE Linux, such as StarOffice 5.1, KDE 1.1.1, Apache 1.3.6, GIMP 1.1.4 and sendmail 8.9.3. There are also many "firsts" such as VMware and RealPlayer 5.0.

"According to SuSE Inc. President, Marc Torres, "This distribution includes many features that will be of interest to IT professionals. System administrators benefit from the state-of-the-art drivers in 6.2, such as for SCSI controllers by Adaptec and Tekram as well as for Megaraid controllers from AMI. Administrators of heterogeneous networks will appreciate the support for NIS, NIS+ (with Secure RPC) and smb, as these facilitate user administration on the network."

"This distribution reinforces SuSE's position as the Linux company offering the widest range of applications for business and personal use in its distribution," adds Torres.
