You've been here long enough to know how the
community works, ideas
are great, but actual contributions make actual changes.
I think it's natural for people to get fatigued by endless ideas.
Understandable, but do you want devs to be isolated from the user
community, and not get *free* feedback from the user community? Because
that's the impression you give sometimes.
There will be good feedback, and absurd feedback, will a gradation of
tones in between. Just accept it all with good grace, and do what is
really possible. I do not expect my suggestions or ideas to be accepted,
anyway. Just politely considered. Or no comment.
But a blunt comment is not what I expected, sorry.
By the way, I
did not ask to reduce the memory requirements, but it
happens that the devs have done much improvements in reducing it
(thanks). The only change I suggested is a warning in the installer
saying "Hey, I think you don't have enough memory to proceed with the
The irony being that implementing such a feature will probably require
more memory.. ;)
Well, yes... Perhaps a few kilobytes. :-)
Now you might ask me to do it ;-) Well, I'm a coder, just not a Linux
coder, and not a ruby coder. It would take me years to come up to speed,
thus I'll decline.
If YaST was made in Pascal, I would accept :-P (kidding)
Sure, there is
a doc somewhere that says the minimal RAM requirement.
I did not read it, or did so years ago. I'm sure many people will not
read it - hey, AFAIR the installer does not display the release notes
before installing :-p
It does, you have a 'Release Notes' button on every single screen in
YaST after you've accepted the software license. It's next to 'Help'
in the bottom left hand corner. openQA sees this button in every
single Leap 42.1, Leap 42.2, and Tumbleweed test it does, how come
you've missed it? I thought human testing was meant to be better than
a stupid automated robot ;)
Sorry, I haven't noticed. I know there is a help button in about every
screen, but I don't remember a "release notes" early in the install.
I'll look again.
Here, another suggestion: after the license, pop up a message with
installation requirements, or add a button for it ;-)
