I love to keep y’all posted on how my upgrades go
after a long wait and a failed attempt to upgrade without the DVD (using zypper dup) --don’t get me started about that one-- i downloaded the dvd and dove in. The machine is a HP compaq 6120 laptop…
The problems i encountered are the following:
→ kernel-sources could not be installed because the symlink could not be created because a directory allready existed. The isntaller could delete a file but not a directory… i skipped the installation and decided to install the sources later.
-> after the installation where i actively un-selected as many Gnome packages as the system would let me i was granted ONLY a GDM login without the possibility to choose (any) KDE
← solved by performing online update after wich i could select another session
-> although i upgraded form an existing kde4 installation i had to configure kde4 again
still no volume control via the buttons wich actually worked in 10.0 and stopped working after the upgrade 10.3 and i was not able to get it running in 11.0.
a quick google showed it works in let’s say mandriva. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/mandriva-30/just-installed-mandriva-free-2009-and…-682031/
i have not tested if VMware or virtualbox worked, hybernation or other stuff i allready noticed that compiz worked…
i would love to have the mute and volume buttons to work
