Critical remians hardcoded to red.

By: KingLz Sat, 21 Jun 2008 09:12:30 +0000 Not having AIGLX default was one of the issues that annoyed me with 10.3.
Packagekit Updater seems to be at least better then the old gnome-updater – I hated it -.
By the way Firefox was just updated to final.

Here are the problems I have so far came up with:
Pulseaudio !!!! I have used it in Ubuntu, Fedora and this here seems to be the least polished. My sound delay was that huge in game that I just removed pulseaudio. It’s not useable right now.

Packagekit seems buggy. I installed a local package with it and it installed nearly everything again. Also it will be confusion for new users. I mean common Yast2 – GTK -QT and packagekit. How do you tell somebody how to isntall packages if you have 3 default choices with suse ?

So far so good. Despite there facts opensuse 11.0 seems to be one of the best distros ever. I mean you find in every distro some things that are not good… but they thats linux. There is no perfect distribution. 🙂

I again am back to the black screen after boot which worked at least until RC1. Now after installing gold final I am back to day 1 with no display. Why we have this issue with DVI connections makes me question development since most cards made today are DVI and not AGP. I have been using KDE 3.5 from the first alpha and this was corrected in alpha 2 and now it seems we are back to Alpha 1 again and it no longer works. I really detest a black screen that tells me there is no connection between the display and the OS.

By: Muhammed Fri, 20 Jun 2008 22:19:22 +0000 The Intel problem + AIGLX can probably be solved by adding ‘Option “AccelMethod” “XAA”‘ to you /etc/X11/xorg.conf’s device section, EXA doesn’t work perfectly in that driver release yet

PackageKit is added to make things more unified across distros, so that you have to use a completely different tool on each distro.

I haven’t seen you talk about libzypp’s extremely fast speed though, that CAN’T be overlooked, it was one of the few major problems that is now fixed. (Also PackageKit uses zypper on suse ;))

It does seem like it needs more polish, especially in PackageKit, and PulseAuido, lets see what fixes 11.1 will bring 🙂

If you feel that there’s no other color than green, feel free to change it in the appearance capplet. Your selected menu entries, your window decorations as well as normal urgency messages will be presented in green.
