[opensuse] 10.2: OK, but some Bugs

Hello together,

I have installed 10.2 RC1 on my system and the first I have to say: after
10.1, installing 10.2 is really a relief for an admin's nerves. Nearly
everything has been running smoothly, apart from the usual problem that after
the GRUB update, GRUB does not boot anymore, and I have to manually
"cp /usr/lib/grub/*stage* /boot/grub ; grub --batch < /etc/grub.conf". Thanks
for that.

But still some things need to be fixed:

1.) OK, it would be nice if someone could acklowledge if there really is a
GRUB update bug (see above) since God knows when, or if I am doing something

2.) xfsprogs really should be updated to 2.8.16, because there are severe bugs
2.8.11: some errors are not corrected by xfsrepair 2.8.11, so there are
latent inconsistencies, which e.g. strike at you when you perform an xfsdump

3.) as I pointed out in an earlier mail wrt SUSE 10.1, rpc.idmapd should start
AFTER nfsserver starts. Still this has not been corrected. Furthermore, there
is a loop in the startup file headers: the nfsserver script has a "should
start: idmapd" line, and the idmapd script has s "sould start: nfsserver"
line. The former dependency should be removed.

Best regards


You can always tell the Christmas season is here when you start getting
incredibly dense, tinfoil-and-ribbon- wrapped lumps in the mail.
Fruitcakes make ideal gifts because the Postal Service has been unable
to find a way to damage them. They last forever, largely because
nobody ever eats them. In fact, many smart people save the fruitcakes
they receive and send them back to the original givers the next year;
some fruitcakes have been passed back and forth for hundreds of years.

The easiest way to make a fruitcake is to buy a darkish cake, then
pound some old, hard fruit into it with a mallet. Be sure to wear
safety glasses.
