Novell offers Linux service pack

Looking to bolster Linux in enterprise environments, Novell is offering its first service pack for Suse Linux Enterprise 10, with capabilities for new quad-core processors. The company also announced Monday commercial availability plans for Suse Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack. Service Pack 1 supports quad-core processors in the Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron product lines. Also featured are improvements in interoperability and system management, Novell said. "What we further improved was the interoperability with Active Directory for both the server and the desktop," said Holger Dyroff, Novell vice president of Suse Linux Enterprise product management.

High-availability storage infrastructure has been updated in the service pack and the platform's audit subsystem has been enriched, Novell said. The storage infrastructure features new versions of the open source Heartbeat high availability software and Oracle Cluster File System. The audit subsystem, which tracks transactions, now is complete. Support for Novell Open Enterprise Server 2, which merges NetWare and Linux, also is featured.

Suse Linux Enterprise Virtual Machine Driver Pack

I guess a similar naming scheme was involved with the Microsoft-Novell deal :P

RPM distros don't have apt. Besides a service pack implies its less of an update than a whole new version of the distro, which is all I need.

You can install apt on an RPM based distro. I've used it on Fedora.
