[opensuse-factory] openSUSE Leap 42.2 - Alpha 2 - call for manual testing
Hello openSUSE supergeeks, techies and community members!

openSUSE Leap 42.2 - Alpha 2 has just been released in time for the openSUSE Conf!

I would like to encourage you to test it and break it. And of course report all the bugs you can find so that we can make Leap 42.2 even better! I can recommand to start testing our great Gnome Desktop in this early phase, for other new things please check Ludwig's email attached below.


I have provided a Testmatrix were you can check what is already covered in our test automation tool openQA or what others might have tested already. Add your name to the list, report bugs or other findings and share your test results. And feel free to extend the Matrix with Testcases/Testscenarios that are interesting for you.

Many thanks and happy testing!

tl;dr 42.2 Alpha2 is on the mirrors, get it from

Since Alpha1 lots of components from SLE 12SP2 could be integrated,
among them an updated YaST, a full GNOME 3.20 update, samba 4.4, systemd
228, glibc 2.22. Mesa 11.2, cmake 3.5 etc.

KDE wasn't updated yet so testing Alpha2 probably makes more sense
on GNOME right now. Bugzilla is awaiting your reports¹.

Some of those updates like cmake and glibc cause other packages to fail
building. So the amount of broken packages in 42.2 has increased quite a
bit, according to the dashboard² we have 181 unresolvable or failed
packages right now. Help to analyze and fix the issues is appreciated

The next Alpha is schedule for July 20th, so please submit³ your
fixes and package updates no later than July 15th.

Have fun and cu at the conference!
