[opensuse-factory] Re: More about the KDE Live CD

Correct, but the problem with the driver is a "show-stopper" when giving
someone, who has known nothing but Windows in their life, a LIVE CD to get them
to try out what openSUSE looks like (not only a bad reflection on oS but a very
poor reflection on Linux distros generally; a major blemish in one reflects on
all).


And may I offer you my (our collective) Thanks for getting the problem sorted
out! I downloaded the Beta LIVE CD and it boots into live-mode without any
problems - no "nomodetest", nothing! :-)

One's spirit has been lifted once again and the future looks bright :-) .

The successful booting of any Live CD on any particular piece of hardware depends on that hardware! There will always be someone for whom it will not work. As long as there are hardware manufacturers that do not test their systems with Linux the way they do with Winblows, that situation will continue.

All we can do is fix the software bugs that prevent booting on *ALL* computers, and hope that the open-source video drivers get better..
