After migrating to suse, the first thing I wanted to get working was emacs. Since I like xft, I use emacs 23. I compiled the cvs version like I always do. Manually compiling doesn’t play well with the available packages and since I intend to use the same .emacs in debian and suse, I didn’t want to write another location to search for elisps. Just then I remembered Suse’s build service. The service allows end users to find cutting edge packages and allows developers to package on the fly. The installation was just one click and I had a clean pacakaged version of emacs 23 running in my system. The build service didn’t stop there :) I have an aspire 5920 and the wireless light didn’t glow but the toggle switch works. I had similar issues in sidux till I updated to the 2.6.26+ kernel. I wanted to try the build service to update the kernel in suse. It had a 2.6.27 kernel and my wifi led works properly. I went ahead and installed kiwi ltsp , after all I have seen it in action last monday morning. I was getting excited with the idea of powering 20 – 30 machines from my laptop to boot and have suse running with ease in minutes. This way the participants of my course can have the same environment to practise as what they see me present it in.
