On the compatibility page, I see a reference to SuSE. Does this mean I absolutely need their Enterprise Server version to run cPanel, or can I run openSuSE 10.0 and run cPanel? I would prefer to stay all open source.

Thanks,

Eddie

With SuSE in particular, we only support exactly SuSE 10.0 and SuSE 9.0 (which I believe is nearing EOL). We do not support nor have any intention to support openSuSE or SLES.

Okay, thanks. I found a mirror with SuSE 10.0 (the "old" version before openSuSE) so I'll just get that.

Thanks!

Although not officially supported, doesnot mean it won't work. I am running cPanel on OpenSuSE 10.2 and all is good. I cannot recall any problems on installation that would discourage anyone from using OpenSuSE.

Just change the contents of /etc/SuSE-release to reflect version = 10.0 and the proper packages are retrieved.

Enjoy!

Cool tip. I've tried to install latest cPanel on SLES10SP1 and it seems that is not installing properly. I'll try this - i really really want to stay on SLES.

They are the same thing.

The commercial one just has codecs and other licensed software. It also includes a support contract with Novell.

openSuSE is now SuSE, as documented by Novell and on the site(s), including mirrors and the wiki.
