    Default openSUSE 11.2 - Milestone8...

    So far, no problems with me Intel-Computer.
    The KDE4 is really great. I am a Gnome-user, but i have tested the KDE4 for me wife, and i am pleased what i see.
    One thing, Digikam, more specific, the advanced slide show will not work, freezed when ik want to start.
    Otherwise, i have no problems, can work with me bank, printers ok, OOo works fine, Kmail also.
    Just had to test me films a maked and play them off.
    Congratulations openSUSE Team !

    Did you try milestone7 too? If so, how does it compare to this new milestone? M7 was pretty bad, reading from the amount of complaints users had.

    Yes i did, now the milestone 8 is much better, with less bugs.
    I like it. And if everything go's right i gonna buy in the computer store here near by the boxed version if available.
    Good distro for the art-Studio.

    I have 32-bit openSUSE-11.2 milestone8 (KDE-4.3.1) running on my Sandbox PC, an athlon-1100 w/1GB RAM, nVidia GeForce FX5200 graphics. I installed from the DVD. I also installed the proprietary nVidia driver "the hardway" (which is not hard). Internet, sound, wired ethernet/internet, graphics, all work well. KDE-4.3.1 is running ok.

    I also briefly played with 64-bit openSUSE-11.2 milestone8 (KDE-4.3.1) via the liveCD (I did not install) on my Intel Core i7 920 PC (w/6GB RAM) with nVidia GeForce GTX 260 graphics. The liveCD uses the openGL nv driver and it configured automatically with no problem. Internet, sound (5.1 surround), wired ethernet/internet, graphics, all worked well. KDE-4.3.1 ran ok. I noted openGL graphic behaviour under liveCD in 11.2 milestone8 (on this PC's graphics) was much better than openGL behaviour in 11.1 on this same PC.

    There is still lots I need to test (firewire/usb external hard drives ... USB camera/camcorder, USB to blackberry, USB inkjet printer etc ... ). But I'm heading off on business for a few days, so that testing will have to wait until next weekend.

    The same here, me wireless ( I work with a usb-Belkin stick ) works out of the box, printing no problem... and so further.
    Before i try more i have to paint me living-room... Not so funny like drawing, but must be done.
    So i think when the final is there it gonna be great working with openSUSE !

    My experience is that my clean install of M8 is better than my initial
    install of M7 but worse than M7 updated to M8 and worse than M1-6.
    Appallingly slow graphics makes it unusable. The problem occurred on two
    machines at M7 installation, then was cured, and now seems to be back on
    only one - on both 32 and 64-bit installations. I'll check a third machine
    and put a bug report in.

    Just a question: I have tried opensuse 11.2 milestone 8. But I have seen a gdm theme (gnome) on kde version! Why?

    Funny, I don't think this should be the case. I have the KDM loging screen on my KDE install. I used the x86_64 DVD. How did you install openSuSE 11.2 M8?
