SuSE 8.0

   From: "Jerry Feldman" <gaf at>
   Date: Mon, 6 May 2002 11:02:57 -0400

   I installed SuSE 8.0 on my laptop the other day from DVD. My
   initial install had some I/O errors on some packages. After some
   problems, I decided to perform the installation a second time. The
   second installation was successful. Everything came up properly. So
   far no glitches with 8.0.  After install, I performed an online
   update to get all the patches. One issue is that when downloading
   the patches it complains that GPG is not installed. BTW: SuSE has
   an online update feature that allows you to easily update your
   system to the latest patch level. You can select which patches you
   want to upgrade (manual update) or just select all (auto update).

In 7.3, the online update appears to have memory and time usage
quadratic in the number of RPM's listed in all of the patches, which
even with 512M and an AMD 1700+ is most unpleasant.  Has this been
fixed in 8.0?
