Opensuse 11.1 beta 2 on PS3 does not bring a lot of joy for me, and I really think something i rotten.
Here my observations.
My PS3 is latest firmware from Sony (well almost it is not the 2.50, that JUST came out but 2.43)
I formatted the disc, partitioning etc, so disc should be clean.
Then it boots up on the DVD, and the nice installer begins to do its job.
BUT at the moment of partitioning, if I do NOT accept the partitioning, the partition tool launch to customize partitions is not having a good day, I think some 32/64 bit issue. It is not capable of calculate partitions larger than 2Gb (two!! Gigabyte). So though the Disc is already limited in the PS3, 2Gb is pushing it a bit :-)
But if I accept the partitioning, and move on then the REAL problem arises:
The installation halts! After choosing KDE desktop, and NOT entering user info, displaying warnings, it jumps to root password, and then freezes. Mouse still moves, but no interaction possible - reproduces every time.
While writing this, I realize I should have tested by entering a user - will try to do this tonight.
If you ask me to do bugzilla's I am ready at the keyboard :-)
