"Today, SuSE Linux, the international technology leader and provider of Open Source solutions, announced the release of SuSE Linux 7.1 for the Sparc architecture of Sun Microsystems."

"SuSE Linux 7.1 for Sparc comes with the proven Linux Kernel 2.2.18 as well as the latest Kernel 2.4.2 as a special bonus for technophile users. SuSE Linux 7.1 is based on the program library glibc 2.2. The popular SBUS graphics cards are supported by XFree86 4.0.2."

"The scope of applications with LFS (Large File Support) as well as the number of applications that support IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6) has grown. IPv6, which is gradually replacing IPv4, allows the use of additional IP addresses and much more flexible routing. Further, individual program packages can be installed with SuSE's installation and administration tool, YaST2, from CD-Rom or, a new feature, from an FTP server. RPMs with SuSE GnuPG key provide additional security during system updates. The graphical user interface KDE 2.0.1 ensures a maximum degree of user friendliness and functionality."
