The functionality of the SUSE Portal has been migrated to Novell accounts.
As users migrate their licenses to their Novell accounts, they need to modify Ya ST Online Update (YOU) to retrieve updates from a Novell update server instead of the SUSE servers.
For example, a common use for the dynamic server list is to install updates to YOU itself prior to allowing any other updates to be installed.
This is accomplished by allowing YOU to only connect to a special YOU update server until all available updates have been installed.
The big thing I noticed was the switch in 9.2 to Xorg instead of XFree86.
There's also a new kernel, many new programs (including some new games) and new splash/startup screens.
Novell created open SUSE after purchasing Su SE Linux AG for US0 million on 4 November 2003.The Attachmate Group acquired Novell and split Novell and SUSE into two autonomous subsidiary companies.After The Attachmate Group merged with Micro Focus in November 2014, SUSE became its own business unit.To do so, simply go to the PSDB article, Recommended update for yast2-online-update, and download the file matching your architecture (Novell Account credentials will be required).
The initial release of the community project was a beta version of SUSE Linux 10.0. The community project offers a rolling release version called open SUSE Tumbleweed, which is continuously updated with tested, stable packages.Updates for SLES are downloaded and installed via Ya ST Online Update (YOU).
