Leap 15.1 in production

We are trying Suse instead of Centos due to more aligned to Xen Hypervisor.
I installed Leap 15.1 on a production machine but should have gone with 15.0 stable.
My question is should it be ok for lightweight tasks until 15.1 becomes stable?
What it the ETA?

Thank you!!


15.1 will not start until after 42.3 is done 15.1 is now an alpha moving toward beta. You should not use on production machines yet

Hi and welcome to the openSUSE Forums!
Leap 15.1 is not even at alpha phase currently, so using it in a production environment is way too risky according to common sense.
A final release is expected about one year after Leap 15.0, so around May 2019.
Leap 15.0 is fairly stable at present and suitable for some production work. If you need professional support please consider SLE (SUSE LINUX ENTERPRISE) instead, otherwise feel free to ask here on the Forums.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for quick feedback…

Ok, now trying to do a remote net install by adding vmlinuz and initrd to a new grub2 entry but grub cannot find vmlinuz…
Have downloaded Leap 15.0 to /boot/…

I cannot find a good working exmaple of a simple “menuentry” to launch a new install - good place to look pls.

Sorted thanks!
In my case I needed TABS and linux to be replaced with linuxefi

This is on a DellEMC R640, had leap 15.1 installed.

echo “Adding leap15” >&2
exec tail -n +3 $0
menuentry “leap15” {
insmod gzio
insmod part_gpt
insmod btrfs
set root=‘hd0,gpt4’
linuxefi (hd0,gpt4)/boot/vmlinuz1 root=UUID=8f5b0fbd-3a40-4af4-bfb9-66f525863860 rw
initrdefi /boot/initrd1
