Release candidate 2 (or RC2) is now out. It was announced earlier today:
As you might expect, I downloaded the iso for the DVD installer, and “burned” that to a USB flash drive. I then did an install using it.
The install went quite well. I followed the same general method as in my install for RC1.
I noticed one change. Early in the install, I was told about “Mesa-dri-nouveau”. This is a new package, broken out from mesa. The notification asked me whether I wanted to accept this package. If I did not accept, then 3D would be emulated in software.
I accepted the package. I cannot test it otherwise.
Unfortunately, it does not work well enough with my nvidia card.
