    I loaded RC1 into a VBox 5.0.6 VM

    Running the KDE Plasma interface
    Found that Dolphin would not launch from the default Desktop folder.
    Dolphin launched OK from Application launch menu.

    At first I thought this was a VM issue - appears to be issue with desktop folder Exec setup

    Upgrading a Beta1 on VM with the RC1 Network Installer, kernel-4.1.6-desktop was replaced with the default flavour: kernel-4.1.10-default.
    It works, so might remain unnoticed; but it is not expected IMHO.
    Can somebody else check that?

    A clean install also gets you the default kernel.

    I expected this. Apparently the kernel folk have merged the desktop kernel into the default kernel. They are no longer separate. Tumbleweed will probably make a similar change in the near future.

    It would be expected by those reading the Factory ML/archive. I would hope to see it mentioned as part of GA announcement in openSUSE news, at least.

    I installed using all the defaults except for only ext4 formatting and no firewall. The very first application I opened was Konqueror pointing to my home directory. It started using FSview and clicking on View>View Mode presented me with only one choice...File Size View. Dolphin offers icon and details views.

    Right, Konqueror is still KDE4 based, but the KDE4 based dolphin has been removed in Leap (and Tumbleweed), so Konqueror is broken now (as file manager at least).
    The only Dolphin included is the KF5 version.

    Hello

    Just a quick note for Leap RC1...

    I get a kdeinit5 crash notification whenever I login to the kde desktop. I also get a KMix crash notification upon login and last but not least
    whenever I am in the Configure Desktop application, it randomly segv's on me as well.

    After these basic login segv's I did not go any further in testing as the system does not appear to be stable enough for me
    to continue with anything.

    If I get notification that these issues have been resolved and a new download is available I will be happy to continue
    testing.

    This is for an English 64bit installation from the downloaded RC1 64bit ISO.

    I certainly hope these basic issues are resolved before Leap is released....

    Yes, that's a problem in PulseAudio, and there are a few other threads about this.
    It has been fixed already, but the fix is not in Leap yet.

    A simple workaround is to make a change in pulseaudio's config file /etc/pulse/default.pa.
    Replace:
    Code:
    load-module module-native-protocol-unix
    with

    Code:
    load-module module-native-protocol-unix srbchannel=no

    And yes, this will definitely be fixed in the final release. Probably the fix will be in the repo before that, but I cannot tell you when.

    It sounds like you didn't bother to read posts #1 to #4 in this thread, never mind other threads. It will be resolved and the workaround is mentioned among those posts. Well it was just a quick note...

    I had previously upgraded systend to fix Vbox guest issues. As an experiment, a few days ago post RC1, I upgraded my Beta1 guest (Xfce version, no Packman) using 42.1-Current oss repo to see how it handled RC1's kernel and virtualbox 5.0.4 to 5.0.6 package changes, which are linked through the -kmp package. Previously I had to lock the virtualbox 5.0.4 packages to prevent them from upgrading when Vbox 5.0.6 was a general failure with missing -kmp (fixed by RC1).

    First I removed all obsolete packages using YaST. Since I wasn't sure of the exact status of 42.1-Current wrt RC1, although close to it, I used "zypper up" resulting in about 1240 package changes. Compared to a "zypper dup", the only diifference was that "libreoffice-branding-opensuse" didn't replace the upstream version. I did that manually, followed by removing kernel-desktop, installing kernel-default, and upgrading Vbox packages:
    Code:
    kernel-firmware-20150907git-1.2
    kernel-default-4.1.10-1.1
    virtualbox-guest-kmp-default-5.0.6_k4.1.10_1-2.2
    virtualbox-guest-x11-5.0.6-2.2
    virtualbox-guest-tools-5.0.6-2.2
    I only needed to make cosmetic changes to default Xfce settings e.g. reset to preferred fonts, and it all worked fine. No PulseAudio or desktop issues, as it's not installed for Xfce. I particularly like the way YaST works on Leap.

    VirtualBox guest-Leap 42.1, including Shared Folders, was a breeze hosted wherever on openSUSE 13.1 (Vbox 4.3.30), Tumbleweed (Vbox 5.0.6, KVM), or Leap Beta1 (VBox 5.0.4, KVM). Now looking forward to the GA...

    Manjaro (ext4, Xfce) ~ rolling updates
