I just performed a Beta2 install from the Gnome CD and ended up with a
mess of an install. I allowed the option in the install to pre-connect
to the online repository and I think that's what caused the problem.
The Factory online repository is a moving target and there were a number
of packages that required different versions of libraries etc.
All of that explanation so I could propose this....
Can we get online repositories that are snapshots of the Beta releases?
I was so excited to have an install that was on a single install and
would pull packages from online only to find it was almost useless. I
understand that once we release this may not happen, but we can't even
test it right now because we the default online repository is factory.
One other thing I've noticed, when I am installed and connected to the
online repository, the time taken to load up the "Software Management"
tool in Yast is completely unacceptable. I don't know exactly what is
going on there, but I see messages about a cache being cleared out, lots
of xml files coming down, rebuilding RPM lists, etc. I'll file a bug
about what I'm seeing but I though I would discuss it here first.
