Well, people, who are still using 11.4 have missed to the point in time 
to switch the train, ... I am sorry for them, but they are learning this 
lesson the hard way, now ;)

Seriously: Continuing to use openSUSE-11.4 at this point of time is a 
bad idea, because such installations will soon be vulnerable and the 
packages (comprising the RTEMS packages) be outdated.

Possible - I occasionally also am using openSUSE myself, but still favor 
Fedora ;)
