Why file a bug for something that is already fixed in
I asked on IRC last night about the CIFS mount problem before filing and got
no useful feedback. The single terse response implied I should file a bug.
The URL Kulow provided to get 37.2 no longer contained it when I tried to get
it a few days later to try on other systems.
I dup'd immediately before testing, and didn't get a fixed kernel from
updates. Therefore I presumed a fix was not generally available, or some
other problem was holding back general availability of 37.2, which I already
knew had a fix that might need to be backported to 37.1.
As a practical matter, and without subscribing to yet another high traffic
mailing list, how's one supposed to know a particular fix made the transition
from announcement to availability when it isn't yet in updates? I know there
is a way, but I never remember it, which makes me wonder if it's practical. :-(
Aside?: What's the story about http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-maintenance/
If you want the latest kernel, you can always use the
How does one decide whether that's appropriate to do? Maybe Kernel:stable
should always be an enabled repo? Would that have a downside? If that's
better than official release kernels, why not go beyond stable to head (or
something else, so... many repos to choose from)?
or openSUSE:Tumbleweed repositories.
Tumbleweed still seems to still have kinks to be worked out, generally, and
due to 11.3 to 11.4 base switch, so I've only one of those enabled as yet.
This update will push out to the main
openSUSE:11.4 repository in a few weeks.
Few weeks? Kulow told us a 37.2 was available before GM was cut!?!?!?
Color me perplexed. :-(
