I just wanted to share some experiences with beta 1 and also figure out
what is a bug or simply not yet finished ;-)
- Although configured for Germany keyboard layout, I had the American
keyboard layout while working in the installer. For me this was just
annoying in the partitioner, but people with "y" or "z" in their
passwords may not be able to log in. I haven't tried that out, but if
you cannot log in, now you know why. Is that just part of "translation
is not yet finished" or should I file a bug report?
fill a bug report
- Trying to format / with XFS went well at first, but during package
installation the installer stalled. A process called "grub" was taking
99% CPU, if I am not mistaken this happened while grub was being
installed so it was probably some pre- or post-install script of the
rpm. Installing with ext3 went without problems. Is XFS supposed to work
for / or should the partitioner prevent this setting?
fill bug report.
- The background in the installer looks horrible with its vertical grey
stripes. Will that be replaced with some nifty design or is this the
fill a bug report ;-)
- Concerning KDE3 support: Is bug #427692 just an
internal joke or is
this meant seriously?
It is not a joke, unfortunately.
