KM Linux

Post by SuSELinux » Wed Aug 20, 2003 11:39 pm

I just found a distro based on SuSE called KM Linux (http://www.lernnetz-sh.de/kmlinux/)

Its totally GPL, so its free, but no Yast

any way Im downloading the ISO's right now, so I will set it up and tell you what its like later.

KM Linux 4.0 is based on SuSE 8.2, so its an awfully active, and up-to-date distro.


has any one else heard of it??

Well the entire install is in German, and Im three quarters Ukrainian, I don't speak German.

I wanted to put it beside SuSE, but in German I couldn't quite tell what I was doing, so I chickened out and retsrted aftre the first couple of steps

If anyone reads German please give it a shot

Im gonna try it again in a bit and see if I can change the language settings before I setup the partitions.


But I was left feeling empty so I downloaded RH9,and MDK9.1 I like Mandrake alot, I feel very comfortable everything is easy to find, RH9 fells very alien, but I do like Blue curve

I would like to see them do what Ximian did with Ximian desktop, and release blucurve as a KDE add on

for info, the downloads are here:
ftp://fsub.schule.de/pub/fsub/kmLinux

i couldn't actually find them browsing quickly through their site (i probably just missed them)

anyway, if i can, i will download and try this linux, although i probably speak little more german than you do, i find it an easy language to read, as european languages go.

you know i was expecting all the non normal stuff in SuSE to be stripped
out of kmlinux like YaST for instance, however as they say:

kmLinux - System-Konfiguration mit YaST2:
kmLinux basiert auf einer Linux-Distribution der Firma SuSE. Damit
stehen die von suse fur die System-Konfiguration entwickelten Tools SaX2
und YaST2 auch in kmLinux zur Verfgung

and then they show (of all things) a haupdialogfenster von YaST2 (i'm
sure you can figure out what one of them is!)

i haven't installed it yet but i am looking forward to it. I did do a
hard drive install of Knoppix 3.0 before and it was in German, but my
other half said she wouldn't be able to use it in German so it wasn't on
there for long.

Are you married? or multiple personalities.


This sounds great

Im living at home right now( Im younger than you, or that's what I have inferred so far) and my mother is one of my users, so I don't want to go about mucking up her stuff ( emails and such) so I am a little afraid of killing my Suse partition.

but if your willing to give KM a shot I think more than some of us would be interested in hearing the conclusion.
