Beta2 is available
Opensuse-12.2 beta2 was released yesterday. I’m posting this as a quick announcement.
I did have some problems, though it is now installed.
Problem1: The installer wanted to format “/home”. Fortunately, I noticed and was able to turn that off (the partitioning section of the install). I mention it, because it might be something to watch out for, particularly if “/home” is encrypted.
Problem2: The first boot after install ended in a hung system. I’ll give more details in a later post. The workaround is to boot with “nomodeset”, which admittedly results in poor video performance. The “nomodeset” is only needed for that first boot after install.
