    Default Fwd: [opensuse-factory] Live installers


    For your info:

    Hi,

    The live installers are broken - the GNOME one just seems to crash and
    the KDE one looks horrible. As neither is really maintained, I consider
    removing the live installer option and concentrate on DVD and NET
    installations.

    This is how KDE installer looks like:
    https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/25...elcome/steps/1

    This is how GNOME installer looks like:
    https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/24...elcome/steps/1

    Of course I won't stand in the way of anyone fixing it, but if noone
    does, I'll remove the live install option in a couple of weeks.

    Greetings, Stephan

    Thanks for posting, though I would have eventually seen it when I checked the factory mailing list.

    It's a pity. But I don't have the time or inclination to volunteer on this.

    For 13.1, there was a lot of brokenness in the live installer during the pre-release stage, though the released iso mostly worked. For 13.2M0, the live install is badly broken.

    It's not completely clear from Stephan's message, but I assume that live media will still be provided though without the installer.

    But I thought that many here would not.

    Even if I had, I don't have the skills. Nor the internet bandwidth.

    Maybe.

    The XFCE image is like that: it doesn't have an installer, and it has
    rescue jobs oriented packages.

    I downloaded the 13.2 Live CD yesterday. I have not tried it but did
    notice there was a note on the download page that no installer was on
    the CD. I have not checked the checksums yet and have not burned a
    DVD.

    I will check yhe sums hopefully tomorrow, have a meeting to go to
    tonight.

    Did it create all those subvolumes itself, or did you configure those
    manually? Interesting.
