[opensuse-testing] openSUSE-Testing Report for the Weekly News - May 29
  • From: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

The Testing Core Team will have an IRC meeting on May 31 at 17:00 UTC.
See http://en.opensuse.org/OpenSUSE_Testing_Core_Team/Meetings for
details. Anyone that wishes may join us.

Personally, I installed M7 on my main machine using the x86_64 NET
install CD and I am using it for routine work. That installation was
affected by several bugs including the faulty gtk library
(https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=608087) that caused Firefox
and Thunderbird to crash on starting. Fortunately, the "Most Annoying
Bugs" page has a simple fix. My machine has an nVidia graphics adapter
that got a garbled screen when using nouveau, but that was avoided with
the workaround on the annoying bugs page. One other bug concerned
setting up NFS clients. Within a day of creating the Bugzilla entry, a
fix was ready and RC1 will be OK. The workaround was to do it manually,
rather than with the GUI.

I used the i586 NET install CD to upgrade an M6 system running in a
VirtualBox virtual machine. The upgrade was accomplished without
difficulty and has been quite useful as I have been debugging the vendor
driver for a D-Link DWA-130. The 32-bit version runs correctly, but the
64-bit one does not. The ability to try both architectures has been useful.
