    Default 11.3 Milestone 4 - Results

    Here I am now using M4
    Installed from the live kde4 image that was dd' to a flash drive

    It will only install for me if I boot to the live desktop first
    Reboots to a dead graphics
    Boot in failsafe and the post install config finished but didn't bring me to a prompt or login
    So reboot and get to X login

    Grub installed as instructed to MBR and picked up other OS's OK.

    So far so good. More to follow

    I migrated from milestone 3 to milestone 4 successfully with a factory update. But did a fresh install on an external hd to see what would happen. It looks like https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=585432 is still not resolved.
    After the initial installation fixes everything is running quite smoothly.

    And this just came over the factory mailing list so be prepared

    I'd like to see Milestone 4 announced tomorrow and have drafted the following
    announcement. Please review it and send me suggestions on improving the text.
    If you want to rewrite it completely, I'm fine as well

    I'd like to see from packagers a few more details on the major packaging
    changes, enhancements are welcome.

    Thanks,
    Andreas

    As this is a milestone release, 11.3 milestone 4 does contain bugs that we
    know about, but should not stand between courageous contributors and release
    testing.

    You can track the most annoying bugs on the wiki along with 11.3 development.
    If you want to make sure 11.3 final is free of annoying bugs, well need your
    help finding, reporting, and fixing those hidden bugs.

    To learn more about testing openSUSE, visit the Testing pages on the openSUSE
    wiki. To follow the testing and development process, we suggest that you
    subscribe to the openSUSE-Factory mailing list (Subscribe | Help | Archives)
    and join the #openSUSE-Factory channel on Freenode to discuss openSUSE
    development.

    * caf4926,

    the mirrors are supposed to block access until the official release, but gwdg often doesn't care. You'll see either nothing or get an access error when you check the other mirrors.

    Did I cross some kind of line here? Just picked the link up as posted by another user. Anyway this thread was about my experience, which I have more to add.


    The install from the kde live image was incredibly quick. Less than 10 mins. Interesting though the installer was a little confused. It ended up creating my user account and a live user account. I also have another distro in a different partition and it put that in the bootloader but used the usb I was installing from as the point of origin. I never checked the detail under 'Booting' because it's just a sandbox and what the heck I can fix it whatever it does.

    So far though, it's running really well.

    Index of /factory/iso choose the latest build
    afaik the official release is imminent possibly tomorrow.
    also if you are updating from factory not 11.3 you should be updated to ms 4. run a zypper up or use yast.

    let me add that the installer picked the correct partition this time
    not over writing the first partition it came to. first time since I have been using SuSe openSUSE since 2002
