List of ship stopper bugs

openSUSE 12.3 RC 2

  • Logging into Xfce is not possible, as a workaround install polkit-default-privs (zypper update polkit-default-privs) from the online update repo Bug #789068
  • Choose your language (mine is Greek) during installation. When it opens after first installation, the system isn't fully translated in the installed language. Activities and user menu stay in English. Program categories and date change into the language you installed it. Bug #807013
  • YaST GTK+ GUI draws buttons off the side of the screen (rather old bug) Bug #722053
  • DVD-x86_64 only fits on DVD-R, it's too large for single layer DVD+R (you can also dd it on a usb stick large enough or burn onto a relatively more expensive dual layer DVD+R)
  • Password for encrypted partition is shown when typed on first boot.(example) Bug #808408

openSUSE 12.3 RC 1

  • Networking related
    • network.service may not be running during install 2nd stage: Bug #800365
