I just created a web page in the Koha Developer Wiki -
http://wiki.koha.org/doku.php - explaining how to install Koha 3 in
openSUSE 11 (RC1).
The page that I created is located here:
Installation Guide for Installing Koha 3 on openSUSE 11
I think that this work is almost finished. Feel free to review it and
send comments (by replying to this post in the mailing list).
If you decide to change the page in the wiki, please inform here in
the Mailing List about what changes you made! :)
Well, it's already past 1:00 AM here now. Time to go to sleep!
