    Default 12.1 Milestone 1 - Post your experiences

    I already posted some comments in this thread:
    Schedule for 12.1 M1-3

    The most noticeable issues I experienced were:

    • Network Manager seems borked in both Gnome and KDE. I didn't investigate properly yet.
    • The repos added by the installer are for 11.4 except 12.1 Update
    • Gnome went to fallback
    • KDE live goes to login 'linux' (password: linux)
    • KDE NEEDS to have 'kde-plasma-desktop' session selected at first login on both the live session and post install.

    Have fun!

    Downloaded the KDE LiveCD yesterday and verified checksum. Then burned it with k3b but that wouldn't boot going right to the grub menu. Then tried using dd to burn it but that didn't work either. I'll try the net CD install tonight.

    openSUSE-KDE-LiveCD-x86_64-Build0026-Media.iso is the iso that didn't work

    Strange
    It was pretty easy going for me, except the issues I already mentioned.

    gnome3 only runs is fall back added Index of /repositories/GNOME:/Factory/openSUSE_Factory
    checked to see if gnome-shell was installed it wasn't. I installed fnome-shell but the xrandr shell borked my log in uninstalled that and gnome3 is running as it should

    kde4 networkmanager is not working workaround is to use the gnome networkmanager and run nm-applet

    So what does one do after logging in with 'linux'? I downloaded build 032 today and no install takes place, even in text mode. I can start ncurses YaST but I don't see any way to start the install. Media check was good.

    Edit: I'm using 64-bit live Kde cd.

    Did you select Plasma-Desktop from the session?
    Once you login, run the live installer that has an icon on the desktop

    There is no session. Which reminds me, I got the same result whether I chose install or live CD. It does a USB integrity check and then text goes by like a
    boot into level 3 and then a login prompt.

    We are working from different builds so I suggest trying the same as me or go to IRC and ask in the factory section.

    I tried build0026 first from a usb stick. I got the following messages:
    • Waiting for usb scan to complete...
      No devices match MBR identifier 0xbce244ce
      reboot exception
      rebooting in 120 seconds

    Subsequent reboots gave similar results.

    From the cd, I was able to get the live version to run but when I clicked the install icon, a window opened and then closed immediately. Clicking the icon again produced the same result. If I choose text mode, all I get is a login prompt.
