    Default Leap 42.1 Beta - post your comments here

    I downloaded the beta, and did a UEFI install. Both went well.

    The only problem was that the system would not boot. This is due to bug 939411, which still has not been fixed. It is a problem if you installed to an encrypted LVM and have USB3 hardware. A needed USB3 driver is not in the "initrd" (that's the bug).

    It's easy enough to work around, and the system is now running well.

    The artwork for 42.1 is excellent (in my opinion). It is a big improvement over 13.2 artwork.

    SDDM now has an entry to login to Gnome-wayland. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Login to standard Gnome (without wayland) also does not work from the SDDM menu. So I will probably switch to "lightdm" as I did with the earlier milestones. Thus far Plasma 5 seems to be doing fine, though my testing has been limited.

    Installed the Leap 42.1 beta this afternoon.

    Install: fine, incl. import of users and mountpoints from previous install,
    First impression: Boots quick, Plasma5 looks OK, the artwork is (IMHO) one of the best we have had.
    Issue found: dual graphics on Plasma5 detected as dual screen. Side effect: started applications launch on an invisible desktop. Workaround: Configure Desktop, it will disappear on the right side of the screen, maximize through right clicking the taskmanager, move mouse out of screen, click whilst pressing Alt, move window is sight, use Display and Monitor to disable the secondary screen. I thought I'd seen this as a bug that was fixed upstream already.

    Gnucash, missing from M2, is now available but one of its requirements,
    Perl-Date-Manip, is missing. So near and yet . . .

    Something went wrong with the Boot Loader Location. The installer just
    gave Root Partition as usual on this machine and I added MBR. What I
    got instead was installation on Root and an external Drive. I
    remembered that this also happened on M2 but I then put it down to some
    sort of finger trouble on my part. It now looks like it's not me but
    something fishy with the disk order.

    Had the usual graphics trouble and freeze-up so had another hack at
    installing nVidia "the hard way". The instructions only being valid for
    openSUSE versions up to 12.2 made it "the really hard way" as far as I
    was concerned but after trial and error - mostly error - I succeeded
    and, so far, it seems that the problem has gone away. Still a puzzle to
    me why nouveau and Plasma5 don't work together but Gnome and the
    same nouveau seems to be a marriage made in heaven.

    Hi
    It's currently in a 'Blocked' state waiting for perl-Test-Inter to build in the development project....

    I did the same this evening, i.e. edited the repo and "zypper dup" from M2 with Plasma 5 up to Beta1. About 2000 changes installed, so I guess I had picked the right one.

    During the package installations, the desktop and Touchpad broke but Konsole continued to the finish while surrounded by black screen. The ThinkPad's Trackpoint and buttons carried on working though, and the reboot made it ok.

    One issue, the cursor keys here now navigate the Grub screen ever so slowly with each press receiving a delayed response. New "artwork"?

    At first glance Plasma 5 looked the same as on M2 (not necessarily a bad outcome), although Phonon's speaker test now works. Hmm, still a step down from Tumbleweed's version. Maybe further testing at the weekend might reveal some hidden gems...

    Manjaro (ext4, Xfce) ~ rolling updates
    Tumbleweed (ext4, KDE Plasma5) ~ managed updates via "Tumbleweed Snapshots" service.

    Hi
    I always logout and go to a tty (or run screen first). I don't worry about grub (hidden and set to 0 delay) or plymouth (removed and blacklisted). I either use the HP's F9 or efibootmgr -n option

    You should never ever select MBR when you have multiple disks. MBR means - "MBR of the first disk" and installer may have different idea what disk is the first than you. Nor should you ever select multiple bootloader locations. The best is to explicitly select device after verifying that it is the disk you actually want.
