I do have a question or rather a comment. I have been trying to install openSUSE LEAP 42.1 with a friend, on a multidrive and multiOS environment. There exist several harddisks and several different OS.
During installation, even with expert partitioner, the installer wanted to override the settings, messing around with the other OS’s disks and partitions. Now, since I plan on using Leap mainly for business clients, who might use multi drives and OS, this is of great importance. Now, I am running it fine on a single HDD System, with several partitions but without any other OS and it works like a charm and install was very and straight forward.
I wonder, if this was an user issue, as of we simply did not see the appropriate option, or if this is maybe an issue with LEAP and how it handles multiple drives. After the installation, there was another issue. Using the sofware manager, there was a diskspace warning for an sda partition, though it had sufficient diskspace available but was part of another OS. I finally fount out, that a label with whitespaces New OS later caused the false alert. Changing the label to NEW_OS_LATER alongside with the mount point, did fix the error. However, bow there is another issue:
If we start package manager from within YaST Control Center it works fine and no errors. Same goes for the terminal version of YaST. However, if we click on add / remove software in the Xface System Settings Window, the package manager starts up, loads the files but then terminates with the error message:
Package not found on media %F
The error shows exclusively when attempting to open Software Management from the Xfce System Settings. From Console and from within YaST it works fine. While this is surely a work around, I am curious about this as well and about a possible fix.
Please let me know what you think as well as any ideas you might have.
