    I have a allot of problems with beta 5. Even beta 4 works better.
    Waiting for beta 6.

      I’ve had no problems with beta 5, what sort of problems are you having and have you filed a bug report for them?

        Beta 5 gives me problems when running in VirtualBOX with KDE. I haven’t tested Gnome.
        I didn’t have any any problems in VirtualBOX when I was testing beta 4, except that I could not change to higher resolution then 1024×768.
        Clearly something has changed. If it’s a problem with openSUSE or Virtual box. I have no clue. The only thing I knows is that my Mandriva 2009 installation in VirtuaBOX works flawlessly. The problem with beta 5 is that when the system has booted. I am unable to click on anything. I can move the mouse around but I can’t click. The keyboard works though. But that doesn’t help much.

      I have updated from Beta 4 to 5 using zypper dup and all went fine. I even installed KDE 4.2 unstable which is also doing fine. The only problem that I have is trying to install my Digittrade DVB-T stick. I keep getting an error 2 messsage. KDE and Qt devel packages are installed but I just can’t get the driver installed.
      OpenSuse 11.1 is shaping up very nice though, just can’t wait to see the final release.
