I am definitely going to test this, mainly because I need to keep on bug reporting till my face turns blue in order to assure 11.3 turns out good for my monitor/video card setup.
11.2 fails without sax2 and with that gone in favor of auto configs that can screw up I need to bug report left and right.
If I need to spam in order assure this turns out right then so be it.
openFATE is one place but whats another good beta/alpha bug reporting place where I can complain if things go wrong?
One thing to note here. The M1 release has very few of the new features that
will be in 11.3. As they move through the MX series, I would expect it to become
less stable before it gets better. Even the kernel version will change from
2.6.31 to 2.6.33 (I think that will be the final change there even though 2.6.34
will likely be out before 11.3 GM).
There is a point, about half way through the development, when the all the packages are added, I think final freeze, that you will see the majority of the bugs and a really unstable
milestone. like lwfinger says the first milestone has very few new features the 2.6.32 kernel and kde 4.4 firefox 3.6 for a few
but these are pretty stable in their own right
Downloaded the KDE live cd and installed into VirtualBox. Live cd boots fine in VBox and tried to install rather then run live session. Install hung up at about 50% after getting to “copying root files”.
Tried running live cd in VirtualBox and after getting into the live session tried installing from there. Install never progressed at all and the little spinning balls just kept spinning.
It looks great though in the live session!
Trying on a Toshiba satellite 64 bit, 32bit version of openSUSE. VBox requires 32 bit virtualization for some unknown (to me) reason and all the other distros I’ve run as VMs are 32 bit.
The toshiba has a 64 bit processor. Trying to install 11.3 milestone 1, 32 bit version via VBox.
I can try 64 bit version of openSUSE but that has always failed in VBox for me so I install 32 bit versions and with no problems.
I downloaded the Gnome live cd version and I may try installing that to see what happens
Thanks for the feedback!
Anyone who installed the cd x86-64 KDE version on a laptop with a NVIDIA 9600GT?
I wanted to install it, however it comes up with a black screen where you’d normally be offered the option to pick your keyboard settings.
Did file a bugreport for it. But it would be good to know if anyone else experienced the same.
