I just had to rebuild my main workstation with 11.3 this afternoon,
so this is a
good time to try a test. Is the x86_64 .ISO small enough for me to
burn on a DVD
now, or do I need to install from a "NET" CD?

11.4 RC1 is working for me.

The "too big" DVD ISO was a one-time foulup in the OBS stuff. It was
fixed very quickly; however, the damage trail lingers forever. Yes,
you should be able to burn an x86_64 DVD. The "should" part comes from
the fact that I never burn a DVD until the GM is released, and nearly
always install from the NET CDs.


I got the install done and everything seems to be working except acting
as a host for VMware Workstation - for some reason it couldn't build
kernel modules. My recollection is that VMware tends to lag Linux
kernels in the distros but I haven't seen a beta for VMware Workstation
I could try.

IMHO, VMware is LOST. With every new release they become more and more and more
hardware specific. And we all know about the problems with VMware tools... but
the good new there is that there IS Open VMware tools... so don't try to compile
the supplied tools... use Open VMware Tools instead.

So, for people in love with VMware, use the open tools.

(or is it the open tools that you couldn't compile??)
