[opensuse] HEADS UP! for the adventurous
Milestone 0 if openSUSE 13.2 is now available but be VERY careful if you decide to install it on a multi-boot system!

Your mileage may vary of course but for me it was a disaster.

I downloaded the KDE Live iso and (just for a change :-) ) it actually booted into Live mode. So I decided to be very brave and actually install it.

I did this on a laptop which already has 13.1 installed but I had left space to be able to install at least 2 more OSs if I chose to. I chose to install 13.2 M0 in one of the empty partitions.

The installation went fine until it came to the first "reboot your computer" which is when the wheels fell off :-( . The reboot saw that there were multiple systems installed and.....went braindead and decided that it couldn't boot into any and so the whole lot defaulted to the laptop's built-in boot procedure (which knows nothing). Now I cannot boot into my existing 13.1 and, of course, 13.2 is not visible to complete the installation.

I am now working thru on how I can recover but I suspect that the only way for me at the moment is re-install 13.1 from scratch.


A civilisation is judged by how it treats the most vulnerable.
