I try to install my extremely lowend laptop :-).
from cd, no luck, extremely slow.
I could copy the cd (beta 8) on the hard drive and boot from there, with an acceptable speed.
I choose minimal text install;
a manual install was required. *first for a dependency problem. libX11.so.6 asks for "NX". Accepting this gives tyhe go. why is this not done automatically, I don't know.
*second, worst, the time was wrong. I have until now (more than one hour work) unable to pass this.
the date is said "le temps est passé" (I think this is "the time is past due". This mean nothing on a computer not net connected (so where does it know the time?).
worts there is absolutely no way to change the given time. going to the time menu allows changing the time, but the chage is not transmitted to the previous screen. when coming again in the install, the time is still the same.
I even could change the computer date (on an other console), but not passing the install screen
so the install was refused by yast...
My bet is this is because of the mono components needed to do the install.
What's the plan for the trusty YaST Software manager from 10.0? Has it been thrown in the "Legacy Software" pile somewhere? I understand that the new ZLM based installer has new features that are good, but it would be good to have the old installer available for older hardware, possibly as just an alternative mini-iso or something which would require the other CDs still. Is that an option?
