openSUSE and Pi?

Fri Aug 10, 2012 12:38 pm

Hey I'd like to start off by saying I'm a total newbie. So I apologize in advance. But I am wondering if openSUSE can be installed on the Raspberry Pi. I'd like to be able to use the Raspberry Pi with Labview. But the Labview runtime engine only supports openSUSE, Red Hat, and SL. If not I'll just use Python :)

I don't know of anyone looking at open SUSE but Python is well supported.

The RPi is still at the development bug finding/fixing stage.

I found this.

Looks like someone used Arch Linux and Labview. Raspberry Pi works with Arch right? So I should be able to use Arch Linux and the Labview Runtime on a Raspberry Pi

LabVIEW for Linux only works on Intel PC's, unfortunately.

There are a number of LabVIEW users - including some people within National Instruments - who are expressing interest in the idea of getting LabVIEW on the Pi, but apparently it's not an easy task due to the size and complexity of LabVIEW's underlying architecture.

It might happen - and feel free to ask National Instruments about it so they know how much interest there is out there - but I wouldn't hold your breath.

(I use LabVIEW on Windows at work, btw, and got some of the above info from talking to NI staff at one of their developer days recently.)

Hi, the openSUSE raspberry pi image is intended to be minimalistic, but people can easily install their favourite windowmanager or desktop using zypper install $YOURCHOICE

btw:
username=root
password=linux

and startx brings up an X11 session with icewm by default (can be changed in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager )
