    Phoronix: OpenSUSE 12.1 Is Set For Release Today

    OpenSUSE 12.1 is set to be released later today. In this article are the first benchmarks of openSUSE 12.1 compared to the earlier openSUSE 11.4 release.

    OpenSuse is primarily a KDE distribution

    "Plasma Desktop from KDE is the default workspace on openSUSE."

    So much for the comment in the article "this popular Linux distribution, openSUSE 12.1 ships with the GNOME 3.2 desktop complete with a relatively stock GNOME Shell. KDE SC 4.7 and Xfce 4.8 desktops are also available".

    To be accurate, it should actually read "this popular Linux distribution, openSUSE 12.1 ships with the KDE SC 4.7 desktop. Xfce 4.8 and GNOME 3.2 (complete with a relatively stock GNOME Shell) desktops are also available".

    Benchmarks should compare KDE performance changes between openSUSE 11.4 and openSUSE 12.1.

      Multimedia Pack Portable for openSUSE 12.1

      I have created a Multimedia Pack portable for openSUSE, the included programs and codecs are:

      1) vlc
      2) mplayer
      3) smplayer
      4) xine libxine1
      5) devede
      6) avidemux
      7) K3B
      8) K9Copy
      9) Audacity
      10) dvdrip
      11) ffmpeg
      12) transcode
      13) PACPL
      14) Mjpegtools
      15) dvdstyler
      16) sox
      17) audacious
      18) lame
      19) dvdshrink
      20) mediainfo
      21) isomaster
      22) w32codec
      23) libdvdcss

      you can install any of the above without internet, they include all
      the dependencies, just unzip the both files into a folder named MMP
      and create a repository from that folder as a simple rpm folder in yast,
      then make a search in the yast installer with the name of the program
      and check it to install it, this is very important if you don`t have
      internet at home, and besides, by default Open Suse doesn`t include
      several codecs due to license matters.

      I have created a blog about the MMP where you can download the pack:
