openSUSE 11.4 manuals ready for translation / 11.4 changes

Frank Sundermeyer

the English openSUSE 11.4 manuals have been finished and are now ready
for translation. The XML sources are available from

### Tagging ####

In case you would like to make a tag in SVN of your current
translations (which probably is 11.3), there is a script in the susedoc
package, that helps. In order to be able to build books when checking
out the tag, you should tag the complete set (includig books that have
npot been translated)

Below is an example (replace any occurences of

1. cd into directory you want to tag
2. Run
-o <PATH TO WORKIN COPY>/opensuse-doc/trunk/documents/distribution \
-t tags/documents/openSUSE11.3 \
--svnroot "" \
--osuffix "<YOUR LANGUAGE E.G. de>" \
--nonovdoc \

#### 11.4 Changes ######

For 11.4 we completely revamped that Start-Up guide. It now consists of
5 chapters derived from the former quickstarts:

* Installation
* LibreOffice
* Help & Troubleshooting

The first 3 chapters have been shipped as separate Quickstart with
former openSUSE versions (filenames are the same as before). The
LibreOffoce part is new, the Help & Troubleshooting remains in the

Most of the stuff that has been in previous Start-Up versions has been
moved/merged into the Reference Guide.

Files having been added from old Start-Up:

* xml/inst_yast2.xml
* xml/yast2_hw.xml
* xml/yast2_sound.xml
* xml/yast2_scanner.xml
* xml/newbie_bash.xml
* xml/newbie_perm_i.xml
* xml/newbie_bash_commands_i.xml
* xml/nm.xml
* xml/nm_kde.xml
* xml/nm_gnome.xml

New Guides

Two new guides have been added:

* System Ananlysis & Tuning Guide
  (problem detection, resolution and optimization)
* Virtualization with KVM
  (kvm, libvirt, qemu-kvm)

Deleted Guides

* KDE User Guide
* GNOME User Guide
* Application Guide

Very good and up-to-date documentation for these topics is available


Therefore we decided to replace these three guides with manuals
coverings more complex and less well documented topics (KVM and Tunung,
see above).
