So, I've installed Leap 42.1 Beta 2 days ago. Here is a quick report
of what I've found so far:
1. Network ISO. Asks how do I want to connect (wifi, wpa2-psk), then
asks which mirror to use, than again asks how to connect and loops in
those 2 questions without ever exiting. Was not able to go any
farther, so had to download full iso.
2. ISO installation went very well, even much better than 13.2 because
it had nasty issue of scanning my built-in ssd (zenbook ux32vd) for 40
minutes, Leap scanned it relatively fast. Only couple of minor issues
with package selection with "minimal X" variant:
a) it wants to install GTK 3 without a single GTK3 app?
b) looks like yast-ncurses is the only yast ui present.
c) no pattern for LXQt, while it is relatively stable at this point,
maybe even version 0.10 will come in time for the release. Hopefully
it will not be hard to get up-to-date and stabilized version later, so
not a big issue.
d) with minimal X variant, would be nice to have some lightweight web
browser as well.
3. New IceWM theme is great! Thanx!
4. Plymouth screen misses the chameleon...
5. Though I haven't checked which exact font is that, default plasma 5
font is quite awkward, looks like some kind of mix of serif and
sans-serif family. I've seen a proposal of changing the default font
to Google Noto, looks like it was not applied yet?
6. And the biggest hit so far is missing packman repos, so I will not
install Leap on other machines until packman will catch up.
So far release is great! Haven't expected it to be so stable and so
polished already, waiting with anticipation for final release! Thanx
everyone who put their effort in making this release work!
