SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP 3 is out

SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 was released today. It contains lots of software updates and features, like UEFI secure boot support. For more information have a look at the release notes of our Server and Desktop version.

SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 templates

SUSE Studio supports the new SUSE Linux Enterprise release from day one. Just click on the Create appliance link after you log in and select the template you'd like to start with.

As always you can configure, build, testdrive and publish your appliance.

One of the new features of Service Pack 3 is UEFI secure boot. You can enable UEFI support at the Configuration -> Appliance tab of your appliance. This feature is only available for 64-bit appliances.

Check the Enable support for UEFI secure boot box and Studio will add the required packages and configuration data to your appliance. Note that UEFI enabled images may not boot on non-UEFI hardware.


As usual you can upgrade previous SUSE Linux Enterprise versions to the new Service Pack 3. Just go to the start tab of your appliance and click the Upgrade button at the top bar.

In case you are not satisfied with the upgrade you can also rollback to your old appliance version. Just click on Undo upgrade at the bottom of the appliance start tab.
