  • Accessing LVM partitions is not possible - Bug #598193 "udev deletes device nodes".
  • Hal is not started for the first boot after complete install Bug #613898 - for KDE desktop this means : no detection and automounting of removable devices, the battery widget is non-functional etc. It also means for KDE users that they can not make a workable LiveUSB from the .iso file by the usual "dd" technique. workaround: sudo zypper in hal ; sudo /sbin/insserv haldaemon
  • Suspend theme not yet branded Bug #610908

GNOME

openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 7

GENERAL

  • The x86_64 NET Install CD had a garbled screen for an NVidia GeForce Go 7150M graphics adapter (Bug #610352). The workaround is to add "brokenmodules=nouveau" to the Boot Options line.
  • Accessing LVM partitions is not possible - Bug #598193 "udev deletes device nodes".
  • Laptop Formfactor is not recognized by the hwinfo and some laptop defaults are not installed: (a) network setting defaults to ifup/ifdown instead of NetworkManager and (b) kernel-firmware is not installed thus wlan adapters are not working out of the box. Bug #591703

GNOME

  • Firefox crashes at start Bug #608087 - workaround: update gtk2 to the new version from the GNOME factory repo

KDE

  • nouveau video driver for Nvidia hardware has some issues detecting monitors via DDC. Bug #596740 - workaround: use nomodeset and configure monitor manually.
