And what is it that you are trying to tell us here? Stop submitting non-telling RFEs that have no explanation. FWIW, openSUSE already fulfills many of those "requirements", not to mention that United Linux is dead has no significant relevance today.

Jan Engelhardt,

I understand. More LSB which is one of the requirements listed above, is outdated in openSUSE Linux 11.4, it in the repositories, because the LSB is not installed and the current version of the
LSB (Linux Standard Base) is 4.1 .

On my computer, with openSUSE Linux 11.4:


# lsb_release -a
LSB Version: n/a
Distributor ID: SUSE LINUX
Description: openSUSE 11.4 (i586)
Release: 11.4
Codename: Celadon

Linux Kernel:

# uname -a
Linux linux-102r #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-02-21 10:34:10 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

The ideal is to have installed the LSB, is the Live-CD or DVD installation of openSUSE Linux by default and always: complete, stable and updated, this also includes the requirements listed above.

For interest, what LSB software you have that you wish to install?

icons/user_comment.png G. I. wrote: (2 years ago)

Robert Davies,

To do this:

According to the LSB:

The goal of the LSB is to develop and promote a set of open standards that will increase compatibility among Linux distributions and enable software applications to run on any compliant system even in binary form. In addition, the LSB will help coordinate efforts to recruit software vendors to port and write products for Linux Operating System.

The LSB compliance may be certified for a product by a certification procedure.

Ok, so based on this discussion we should decide that LSB should be in by default. That could be done but is a different future request.

Michel Veltman,

Different? It is equal, the LSB is standard on United Linux.

All requirements listed above are standard in United Linux.

I understand. There is no way to satisfy the requirements of United Linux now, which also includes the LSB by default, openSUSE Linux have his own base:

aaa_base - SUSE Linux Base Package
This package installs several important configuration files. Central scripts like SuSEconfig are also in this package.

aaa_base-extras - SUSE Linux Base Package (recommended part)

The parts of aaa_base that should be installed by default but are not strictly required to run a system. (Shell aliases, bash completions and convenience hacks).

aaa_base version 12.1 has been released, most in the next version (12.2), can modify, upgrade or replace the aaa_base, in order to use complete all the requirements of United Linux, including the LSB by default, everything has to be always more stable and updated.
