Has anyone been successful in deploying Typo3 CMS 6.2 on SLES 12?

I have several issues:

  • mysql appears to be missing - we will need to opt for MariaDB
  • Graphicsmagick is present in SLES 11 SDK, but is missing in SLES 12 SDK
  • bzip2-devel cannot be found

In our team we already have doubts whether SLES12 is a good choice to host Typo3 ...
One of our motivation to go from SLES11 to SLES12 is that SLES12 is offering PHP 5.5.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences, Thomas
