Jos Poortvliet from openSUSE has announced earlier today, October 1st, that the first Release Candidate of the upcoming openSUSE 12.2 ARM operating system is now available for download and testing.
openSUSE 12.2 is now available on the ARM architecture, with a first Release Candidate version available for testing right now (see download link at the end of the article).
The ARM edition of the openSUSE 12.2 Linux operating system will have support mainly for the ARMv7, Cortex-A processor.
"After 11 months of grueling work, openSUSE is pleased to announce the first Release Candidate for openSUSE 12.2 on the ARM architecture."
"After discussing ARM first at the openSUSE Conference in 2011, the openSUSE ARM team has managed to bring up openSUSE from nowhere to being a truly usable and functional distribution on the ARM version 7 architecture in time for the new openSUSE Conference in Prague next month!" said Jos Poortvliet.
