Novell Preps SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP1
More than just a gathering of bug fixes, Novell's SUSE Enterprise Linux patch will significantly improve the functionality of both its Linux server and desktop. (Linux-Watch)SALT LAKE CITYNovell will soon release a major upgrade to its SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 line. The enhancements, announced at the companys annual BrainShare trade show, will be rolled out in the form of the operating systems first service pack, SP1. "Service packs" usually consist of bug-patches, with few major changes. Like Microsoft with its SP2 patch to Windows XP, however, Novell has elected to make major improvements with this approach. SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 includes SLES (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) and SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop). According to Novell, SP1 will include enhanced virtualization support and management via the latest update, Version 3.0.4, of the Xen hypervisor.
