Page 1 of 1
SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack (SP) 3 is the first major update of SUSE's flagship Linux platform since February of 2012 when SP2 was released. The first SLES 11 release debuted back in 2009 and SLES 11 SP1 debuted in May of 2010.
The SP3 update provides users with new hardware support as well as a long list of package updates, including both the latest updates for the KVM and Xen open source virtualization technologies.
For the SP2 release, SUSE rebased the SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Linux kernel to version 3.0 in order to provide new features to users. With the SP3 update, there is no such kernel rebasing. Matthias Eckermann, Senior Product Manager at SUSE, told ServerWatch that with SP3, SUSE is staying on the 3.0.y Linux kernel as the base version.
