    Default LEAP 15 - First experience

    I am in sorrow:
    For more than a half year Leap 42.3 has been my very main OS I am much more than satisfied with - I am positively excited and I would simply call it perfect for at least an advanced user as me!
    Recently, SEL has brought a beta version of SEL 15 out for trial - this one verified **** at all - followed by two initial builds of corresponding Leap 15. On my older machine (AMD 990FX with an FX6300) containing four SAS disks each of these holding five partitions there was not even success of the installer's device probing. However, I could make the setup run further on my new PC build on top of an AMD B350 mainboard with an Athlon X4 950 and one SATA disk only. But this time I myself had to break the installer because even the expert partitioner did not present any offer to undo the proposed disk partitioning without destroying one of my preexising data partitions.
    So for now, it seems those first builds of Leap 15 both appear as a big step backwards:
    1. A distribution derived from an "Enterprise Linux" should not have any problems with recognizing SAS disks accepted by any Ubuntu or similar!
    2. SuSE should much more regard various requirements of users who want to have a partitioning plan of their own consideration. Never enable you an installer to enforce it's silly proposals!
    I hereby strongly call openSuSE's developers to correct those very bad faults of concept as soon as possible for I want to continue declaring myself a true SuSE fan ...

    Just one more I forgot to tell before:
    PLEASE, offer Xfce as an alternative desktop environment for Leap 15's setup as soon as possible ...

    Wrong subforum. This is for how to guides and tips. I will move it to General Chit-Chat.

    I installed "openSUSE Leap 15.0 Alpha" yesterday, on a virtual machine.

    I have blogged about it: OpenSUSE Leap 15 — an early look

    Apparently, they have redesigned Yast partitioner. I spend a good part of that blog post on the partitioner. It is obviously a work in progress. I'm assuming that it will be complete by the time that Leap 15 is released.

    But this time I myself had to break the installer because even the expert partitioner did not present any offer to undo the proposed disk partitioning without destroying one of my preexising data partitions.
    Sure it does. But maybe the documentation is inadequate.

    Once you are in "expert partitioner", click "Rescan Devices" near the bottom of the screen. That removes the proposed partitioning (and gives a warning to that effect).

    After that, click on the partition in the left column. The main window should now have a "Edit" button near the bottom. Use that to change how you want to use the partition.

    At present, the Edit button is not there for a logical volume in an LVM volume group. I'm assuming that will change by release time.

    I don't know about SAS disks, so I can't give any advice there. You might try a bug report or a feature request for support of SAS disks.

    I hereby strongly call on you to understand that openSUSE Leap 15 is not even alpha stage yet - it has had absolutely no real release, it's not even in real testing phase yet.

    Wait a few months and then try it again.

    Agree, very premature as a verdict.
    According to the SLE15 Beta mailing list, even SUSE Linux Enterprise currently at Beta2 is still very Work In Progress, with some YaST modules still incomplete and a few key packages still missing.
    So the very core of Leap15 is still WIP and a long way to go. But this is the right time for bug reports and feature requests...
