openSUSE 11.1 Goes RC2

December 3rd, 2008 by

Yesterday Coolo released openSUSE 11.1 RC2 internally to fix all existing bugs marked as shipstopper.  We use now the SHIP_STOPPER flag in bugzilla to mark bugs as blocking the release (see our wiki for the usage of SHIP_STOPPER) and not anymore BLOCKER (which blocks testing or development).  If you want to search in bugzilla for the currently open SHIP_STOPPERS, you can use this query.

We also found one really annoying bug in our configuration that lead to the following output:

$ rpm -q –queryformat ‘%{vendor}\n’ glibc
openSUSEopenSUSE:11.1 openSUSE:11.1

Therefore, the openSUSE Build Service is currently rebuilding all 11.1 rpm packages with a corrected vendor tag.  Also a couple of packages where checked in to fix bugs so that we soon get RC3.

If RC3 passes all tests, we hope to release it publicly as Goldmaster – the release date is still the 18th of December.

Due to the time it takes to release a build publicly, we are not releasing any RCs besides RC1 to the public.

I’m running RC2 on my machines now and I’m quite happy with this release.
