SuSE Linux 6.1

Unread postby pentium » Sun May 04, 2008 6:42 pm

I picked up a boxed copy of it today at a garage sale for $0.00 and I'm wondering just how exactly old 6.1 is and can it be updated? The cd's look brand new.

Its very, very old. I doubt it'd even install on anything modern. Suse 6.1 was released in April of 1997.

There won't be any direct updates from 6.1 to anything newish.

It's not even worth it, imo.

Okay.
So it's just a pretty box to put on the shelf. :)
