The most annoying bugs and their suggested workarounds:
For general information about reporting bugs, see Submit a Bug. Do not report partly translated dialogs or completely missing translations before milestone 5; expect updated translations during the beta tests. Also see the Localization Guide.

To directly report a bug against openSUSE 11.4, here's a shortcut.

openSUSE 11.4 RC2

  • DVD&NET "Check Installation Media" always reports Checksum wrong (Bug #674609)
  • Computer does not hibernate when battery reaches critical low percentage (Bug #675405)..
  • NetworkManager fails to start on bootup. Workaround is to start it from console (Bug #675261).
  • Regression in Radeon graphics drivers leading to disabled GPU acceleration: Bug #675147
  • Firefox does not ask before closing a window with multiple tabs, even if it is configured to do it (Bug #669231)
  • The "New Mobile Broadband Connection" wizard in KNetworkManager crashes (Bug #673755). It is not possible to set up a new mobile broadband device via UI, but it can be used if a configuration already exists, and the config can be created by manually editing under ~/.kde4/ -- see comment # 13 on the bug report.
  • Crash under certain conditions of the "KDE System Settings" application when accessing the "Locale" module. Will probably happen if user preserves her home directory when installing; Requires manual edition of a text file as explained in Bug #671547, comment # 7.
  • Live upgrade by zypper dup can crash, leaving rpm broken, by uninstalling liblzma0 (Bug #677425). Workaround: Lock the package by calling zypper al liblzma0' and/or perform zypper up rpm beforehand.

openSUSE 11.4 Milestone 2 of 6

  • X crashes on some hardware when KDE uses window effects (Bug #641297) - workaround 1: edit ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc and change the value of OpenGLIsUnsafe to true. workaround 2: use another windowmanager/desktop ; for NVidia using proprietary driver also helps.
