openSUSE 11.2


  • Bug #548108:The system hangs after loading the installation kernel for a large variety of Gigabyte Mainboards, e.g. GA-MA69GM-S2H, GA-MA790X-DS4, GA-MA770-DS3, GA-MA790FX-DQ6. All these mainboards had no problems under 11.0 and 11.1 (see also Bug #557586). By turning off ACPI completely or partially (acpi=off or acpi=ht) installation and operation of the installed system works. Operation with ACPI is possible with the vanilla kernel (without SUSE patches) and for some of those boards with the last factory kernel (2.6.32-41.x). For at least two of the above mentioned boards ACPI operation with the 11.2 standard kernel can be made possible by a BIOS upgrade: GA-MA69GM-S2H upgrade to F6, GA-MA770-DS3 (rev. 1 with SB600) upgrade to F7 and "Load Optimized Defaults".
  • Bug #551642 : When updating a 11.1 from the DVD, kernel-pae-base (or kernel-default-base) is not removed. zypper dup from the online repository works ok. Workaround: Deselect kernel-pae-base manually (In the Update Overview, click Packages, go to the Installation Overview tab, select Show packages with status [X] Keep, scroll down to kernel-pae-base and deselect it).
  • Bug #546575 : While upgrading from 11.1 (or older) a typo in /etc/sysconfig/network/scripts/convert_persistent_name_rules might result in a line containing ATTRS{address}=="<MAC_ADDRSSS_OF_A_NIC> instead of ATTR{address}=="<MAC_ADDRSSS_OF_A_NIC>" in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. You must apply this manual change before you start a remote network based upgrade. Else you risk to lose the network connectivity afterwards.
  • Bug #549158 : Installation from Live CD/DVD/USB fails when /usr and (or?) /var are on separate mountpoints
