I want to play the voting game one last time for 11.2.
For 11.1 many complained that the quality was too bad to
ship. For 11.2 I want to test something: collect your
votes. I created

I voted no, but didn't get a change to comment....
Bug 548993 is one I'd consider a showstopper bug
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=548993
Grub cannot find ANY other installed Linux. This is a really serious
bug... one that, if it's allowed to be in the final release, will
REALLY make openSUSE look bad. When you install 11.2 on a system with
other Linux versions already installed, the 11.2 installer cannot find
them or configure Grub correctly, and you end up with a Grub that
knows only 11.2. You cannot booth the other installed OSes unless you
run a repair/recover from one of the other installed Linux versions'
install DVD. At this point.. we are going to ship 11.2 with this
"feature"!

For me... it doesen't bother me on my own hardware as I run only
openSUSE, and will be using only 11.2. For anyoen else.. especially
those who are considering using openSUSE, or those who need to use
multiple installs.. we're going to look so so so bad when they run
into this :-(

As I said in the bug report, I'd call this one a release blocker bug
if I was the release manager.
