Opensuse 13.1 glitches
In my previous post, I indicated that I would report on any glitches.
This will be a short post. I have installed on four different machines. The install went as smoothly as any.
I did run into one glitch, with ecryptfs. And that showed up on all of the installs. When installing from the DVD (which I did, except I “burned” to a USB), you cannot directly include “ecryptfs”. That software is in the repos, but not on the DVD. So, technically, this was a post-install glitch.
I used Yast software manager to add ecryptfs. After adding it, I noticed that the pam configuration had not been updated. The result is that login does not automatically decrypt the Private directory.
The problem is easily corrected by running (as root)
# pam-config -a --ecryptfs
With that change, everything has been just about perfect. Well, Apper is still a bit flaky, so I’ll probably turn it off.
