After 3 years with Ubuntu I finally got bored and decided to give Opensuse a shot. The install was smooth, I love the design (KDE), firewall management was awesome (so much better than manually doing IP tables). However, I’ll be reinstalling Ubuntu first thing tomorrow morning. Here is a list of most of the issues I ran into…
- Booted to black screen (deleting the .config file fixed this)
- Booted to a fuzzy screen with a stripe down the side. It looked like an old cable TV with a bad connection. Rebooting fixed this?
- Desktop froze after sitting for an hour unused.
- Opening a photo from my phone over KDE connect crashed the desktop.
- Opening Yast took a long time, so I clicked it again and two windows opened, one crashed.
- Going to sound settings required sudo? Seriously? Also checking the don’t ask again box doesn’t work.
- Sound didn’t work out of the box, after reinstalling pulse it worked, but volume controls did not.
- An additional 1-2 crashes for no apparent reason.
- Nvidia repositories under software management don’t support 9 or 10 series cards.
Like I said the design is awesome and Yast/Firewall management and snapshots are great. But holy ****… it is beyond unstable. How does anyone use this??? I know a lot of these items are KDE related… is the Gnome version better?
