  • openSUSE 11.1 Alpha 1 Released

    From the mailing list:
    Hi everyone,

    openSUSE 11.1 Alpha1 is available -- but beware, this is an Alpha with very
    rough edges!

    While testing this on a Thinkpad R51, the system didn't boot after first
    stage installation. We are still looking into this issue (#411937). In
    addition to that, the default GNOME installation will complain about a
    missing package (providing gnome-session-branding)[1].

    With the current bootloader issue, using the DVDs for installing is not
    recommended, until we have a workaround. Please try the LiveCDs instead!

    openSUSE 11.1 Alpha1 GNOME LiveCDs:
    openSUSE 11.1 Alpha1 KDE4 LiveCDs:

    Please refer to for further details
    and all the links.

    Happy testing,

    [1] missing package is available from:
    Christoph Thiel, Tech. Project Management, Research & Development
    SUSE LINUX Products GmbH, GF: Markus Rex, HRB 16746 (AG Nürnberg)

    I feel the pain

    Opensuse was a great distro in my book but the latest versions have proven impossible to install over my usb dvd-drive. Until the hardware support improves I'm out of the suse game I'm afraid.
