Raspberry Pi 4 and openSUSE LEAP 15.1 ?

Mon Jul 01, 2019 7:06 am

Can Raspberry Pi 4 run openSUSE LEAP 15.1 ?

If one buys the new Raspberry Pi 4, can one install openSUSE LEAP15.1 and get it to run: email (Thunderbird); Browsers (Firefox, Chromium), YaST for updates, with BBCiPayer working in Firefox?

Probably best to ask the developers, RPT / RPF only support Raspbian:

Take what I advise as advice not the utopian holy grail, and it is gratis !!

OpenSUSE is my favourite distro (all way from 2002 when I evaluated a few and even that version, then, seems far more rounded than many today's favourites). I haven't tried it on Pi4, but I went for Raspbian + KDE and played a bit sorting out bits and pieces for it look closer to what I would get straight out of the box with OpenSUSE...
