I also tried SuSE 10.0 (RC1 at the time) on
a Toshiba Tecra 9000 laptop, and found it to
still have quite a few of rough edges
compared to SuSE 9.3 on the same machine.

At the time, apt support for 10.0 isn't there

involved a lot of building from source, as
SuSE 10.0 seems to be sticking with the
no-multimedia policy.

Wireless and software suspend worked,
but not as well as they work in Debian-based
Kanotix 2005_03, which is still what the
laptop feels happiest running.
