6 weeks ago I introduced the new data structure of the Partner Software Catalog, now I want to go into more details and explain the little icons that are visible if you drill down into a product or a special product version. Once a catalog user has triggered a search and clicks on the green […]

It has been quite a while since Darren pointed out the positive feedback of our ISV partners about SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2.

The release of SLE 11 SP2 has happened and consistent with SUSE policy, ISV partners do not need to re-certify their SLE 11 SP1 user-space applications in order to support SLE 11 SP2. But also consistent with our policy, we invited our SUSE ISV partners to download SP2 Release Candidates, test their applications, and provide […]

Since system software often needs to interact closely with the underlying operating system, Linux system software products may contain kernel modules as well as user-space libraries and executables. It is particularly important that these kernel modules be reliable and robust: unlike user-space binaries, kernel modules can compromise operating system stability.
The concerns discussed in this paper apply regardless of the Linux distributions an ISV wishes to support. However, suggested solutions may be distribution-specific. This document endeavors to highlight the basic issues, briefly describe various approaches, and provide direction for ISVs targeting SUSE Linux platforms.
This document is intended for developers of kernel-space software products for SUSE Linux Code 10-based operating systems (SUSE Linux 10.x, SUSE Linux Enterprise).
