I just did a fresh install of opensuse 10.2 x86_64 (from the downloaded DVD).
[Mobo : Asus A8V deluxe, CPU : AMD Athlon 64 3200+, 1Gb RAM., 2x 120 Gb SATA
drives, Graphic card is GeForce 4 Ti4200, 128 Mo]
I had no problem during the installation step (fast, easy, found windoz
partitions automatically and mount it properly). I choosed standard install
with kde (thus changed filesystem from reiser 3 to ext3 !)

Hardware was correctly identified.
Update seems to work nicely (faster than in 10.1, lower CPU usage).
The overall system is faster than the previous (10.0) and perfectly running.

However, I have several concerns :

- After installation of the latest Nvidia driver (9631), 3D acceleration works
but CPU usage is 100% (even when launching only glxgears !)
Is that normal ?

- I could't find any repository which offers the package findutils-locate
(locate +updatedb...)
I know there is the dog stuff, but I love locate ;-)

- A lot of packages which were available with 10.0 and 10.1 are not anymore
(some games (foobillard...), utils (aMule...)....)

Is it just a matter of time ?

Thank you for feedback.
