I just installed RC1 on my Lenovo Thinkpad T60, with KDE 3.5 as
default desktop. My experience:
- During installation, I set the default boot entry to my old 10.3
installation. This resulted in having "default=2" in my menu.lst. But
upon first boot, both 10.3 entries (default and fallback) have
disappeared, and guess which OS was booting by default... Win XP!!!
(OMG!) Anyone else had problems with the installer not copying
previously existing entries?
Please report in bugzilla.
- First boot does not use kexec anymore. It did for
beta 1 or beta 2
on this machine... has kexec been dropped?
No, please report a bug.
- There's a typo (possibly instroduced by the
spell-checker in the
german translation of the slideshow during installation - on the slide
that announces OpenOffice it says that openSUSE ships the most recent
office suit (which might be a nice feature btw, but hard to implement
when installing from the internet ;) )
- The branding looks super-cool. The cloth-like texture during
installation does a good job hiding gradient artefacts on 6-bit
panels. Unfortunately, this is not the case for the kdm login screen:
It looks kind of weird because the gray gradient shows blocky
artefacts and also colors. Of course, I understand it's too late now
to change the branding for the login screen.
Otherwise, I'm very happy so far with RC1. Kudos to all of you!
Glad to hear - thanks for testing!
