Come on, SuSE…

I downloaded the 4.3 GIGABYTE iso image of the SuSE 10.0 EvalDVD image because I wanted some of the bits noted as missing from their OSS version, like ncftp and vpnc. Well, no luck. I mounted the image, and they’re missing. I google a bit and discovered they’re only available on the DVD in the boxed set you buy, not in the eval DVD version. And I can’t find anywhere you’d be able to download them.

Lame! Hmm…any reason you can’t buy their boxed set and copy all the missing RPMs off it, putting them up for FTP somewhere on a nice high-bandwidth generous server?

Update: Jem Matzan has a great article in The Jem Report which addresses this directly. He explains how to set up YaST to be able to automatically get stuff you’re missing like Thunderbird, MP3 support, and Java. It has the other parts I’m missing, including ncftp and vpnc. Yay! I could also finally get the NetworkManager packages, which I came to really enjoy when I was using Fedora Core 4. Thank you, Jem!

Some people can`t afford health insurance so they have choice to pay for the really expensive prescription drugs or look after cheap generic drugs online. Generics are potent and safe as other branded meds. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Cipla. Having this in mind one may buy propecia uk in generic online pharmacy with free shipping worldwide
