Yes, see the most annoying bugs of Beta3. pam_fp is broken, the wiki
describes how to fix it,

On Beta 3, it doesn't work for me. The wiki says:

]> Bug #437411: su and console login do not work. Workaround: sudo vi
/etc/pam.d/common-auth and remove the pam_fp line. We will release a test

I have no "pam_fp line" and I see no update at all.


- No text consoles.
- In gnome, I can "su -" to root, but Yast only works in ncurses mode.
I tried "yast2", "yast", "yast --qt", and in all cases I get the ncurses
mode yast.
- Going the menu route, yast does not start and I see no error.
- If I log in as root, in Gnome, I get the graphical Yast.

Cheers / Saludos,
