openSUSE 11.2 on its way to become final – Release candidate available!

October 15th, 2009 by

We’re well on the way to openSUSE 11.2! Today we’re happy to announce the first release candidate for openSUSE 11.2. This release includes quite a few bugfixes and several updates, including GNOME 2.28 final, Linux 2.6.31.3, and many others.

As the first release candidate for openSUSE 11.2, it should be almost ready for final release. However, there still are a few remaining known issues and the purpose of the release candidate is to discover any major issues before 11.2 final. It may not be suitable for production systems, but is ready for contributors who want to help with testing and development for 11.2.

What’s new in openSUSE 11.2?

The new version includes latest versions of all kind of software and delivers:

  • Live version upgrade. No need to stop working while upgrading from openSUSE 11.1 to openSUSE 11.2
  • Support for several social networks like Facebook, Twitter and identi.ca
  • Running openSUSE from an USB stick (especially for that we ask you for testing)
  • For more new stuff check this wiki page

Changes Since openSUSE 11.2 Milestone 8

Release Candidate 1 includes a few new packages, and several of the “most annoying bugs” in milestone 8 have been fixed for this release. New packages include:

  • Linux kernel 2.6.31.3
  • GNOME 2.28
  • PulseAudio 0.9.19
  • Evolution 2.28
  • Qt 4.5.3
  • SeaMonkey 2.0 RC 1

A more complete list can be found on the wiki and an updated list of Factory packages can be found on DistroWatch.

11.2 is looking fantastic. Want screenshots? We’ve got ‘em! Check out the shots here, and/or add your own.

Most Annoying Bugs

As this is a release candidate, 11.2 RC1 does contain a few bugs that we know about, but should not stand between courageous contributors and release testing. The most annoying known bugs in 11.2 RC 1 are:

  • Bug 545753: GNOME icon is only partially visible during Desktop selection on DVD installer.
  • Bug 544079: sonar: gdm panel contains GtkComboBox that is unreadable.
  • Bug 546359: Messages “not a regular file or has tail and normal blocks” on console during boot caused by preload bug.
  • Bug 546838: “soft” lockup on shutdown in qemu
  • Bug 540482: Restart fails to restart computer
  • Bug 543468: all repos are lost on update

You can track the Most Annoying Bugs on the wiki along with 11.2 development.

Testing! Testing! Testing!

As you can see, 11.2 RC1 does have a few bugs that we know about — but there may be more lurking somewhere in the release that haven’t been found yet. If you want to make sure 11.2 final is free of Most Annoying Bugs, we’ll need your help finding, reporting, and fixing those hidden bugs.

To learn more about testing openSUSE, visit the Testing pages on the openSUSE wiki. To follow the testing and development process, we suggest that you subscribe to the openSUSE-Factory mailing list, and join the #openSUSE-Factory channel on Freenode to discuss openSUSE development.

Get Release Candidate 1 Today!

What are you waiting for? Grab the milestone release today! Downloads are available at software.opensuse.org/developer/ now.

Note, if you need to try the live CD on a machine with no CD-ROM drive, you can copy it to a USB key with the following command:

dd if=image.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

Replace “image.iso” with the name of the ISO image that you have downloaded, and replace “sdX” with the actual device name of your USB drive. Be careful! This will erase the target device, so make sure you have the correct device name and have any vital data backed up!

The next and final release candidate is scheduled to be released on October 29, 2009. See the detailed roadmap on the on the wiki.

    Just one question? Why the last KDE 4.3.2 is still missing in this RC1 release? Will the final 11.2 release contain KDE 4.3.2 or newer?

    • Anonymous

      No, and openSUSE 11.2 will also not contain KDE 4.3.3 which will be released by then.

  2. mukk

    for oS 11.2 final release date there will be already KDE 4.3.3 out. But this is too much to expect cause the 4.3.3 will be released couple of days before oS 11.2 final release.

    … but maybe opensuse team will surprise us :)

    • MW

      Amarok 2.2 and Arora 0.10 would be nice too!

      • ColinP

        New versions of software should NEVER be introduced at Release Candidate stage, except to fix bugs. To do so would be incredibly irresponsible. Remember the KDE4 network manager, which was changed late in the 11.1 release cycle?

  3. LinuxLover

    I want so badly to like OpenSuse, but what holds me back is the ungodly number of repositories you have to setup. Can’t this be simplified? In contrast, PCLinuxOS has only 1 repository. Mandriva uses quite a few, but they’re pretty much already setup for you. When I used OpenSuse, the amount of setup involved to get all your repositories active is just too much. Please consider condensing some of these into something more sane, and make setting it up less of a pain.

    • NeoGraven

      PCLinuxOS does not have the functionality available to it that OpenSuSE does, nor the community sources. True, things can be merged together, but there are ramifications to that. This isn’t just grouping a bunch of packages together and saying “There ya go”.. These packages are painstakingly created and maintained.

      For instance: PCLinux lumps everything into one rep (repository). Three standard ones in OpenSuSE are: OSS rep for all-opensource, a NON-OSS for free but licensed (i.e. manufacturer provided drivers), and an update rep.for updates to the production release. The first two are pristine (OSS and NON-OSS). The updates rep contains updates to the first two. There are several reasons, but most importantly depencies remain intact, updates can be maintained in a smaller scale as the rep is smaller, etc. I have had problems with PCLinuxOS, major ones, because of it’s package management.

      It’s done for a reason, and I might add a very good one IMHO. BTW, I’m not knocking PCLinuxOS, I really dig that distro. I’ve simply found OSS is better for my professional and personal need

      • LinuxLover

        Then they simply need to make setting it all up painless. Mandriva has a lot of repos, thought they’re not in the number that OpenSuse uses. However, what they do better is have them mostly setup for you and just have to be enabled. Can’t it be that simple? I mean, out of all the distros I’ve ever used, 3rd party repos aside, OpenSuse has the most complex repo arrangement I’ve ever seen – and I’ve used quite a few distros in my time including a long run of Suse before Novell ever bought them.

        Second, PCLinuxOS doesn’t truly have one repo. That one repo is subdivided into something like 11 or 12, but all on the same server. Also, if you’ve run into problems with their packaging, you’re in the minority. As a matter of fact, OpenSuse has been the poster child of dependency hell because of the way YaST screams at you when it runs into a dependency problem. Anyone who’s used many Linux distros should know that every distro from Red Hat to PCLinuxOS to Debian and everything in between will occasionally run into dependency issues, as we’re all human. Therefore, I’m not claiming in any way that OpenSuse has dependency problems others don’t have, but YaST simply shouts at the user when it has one.

        I stand by my point that OpenSuse simply has too complex of a repository system, and it could be better organized and easier to setup for the user. Other than that, it’s a great distro.

        • Pierre

          I think that openSUSE isn’t more difficult than any other Linux system out there. Well, ok, if you want to use codecs like mpeg3 or others you will need to set up the Packman repository, but this is easy like on every other distro out there – that is not targeted at absolut beginners. (just one simple command with zypper on command line, very easy and the repo is added in YaST, too)
          And I even can’t figure out why you are using YaST. What about zypper? One of the very best command line tools for package managment aside pacman of Arch. I know, many people think that the command line method is outdated and crap, especially these guys coming from Windows, but I find it sometimes even less complicated to search for a good command instead of trying to find the right button somewhere in a menu-jungle. So just give this way a try. It works really nice and I never had any problem with this way. Sure, you need to know a litte about your system, but this can’t be wrong, can it? And if you don’t know how the command works, you can read the man pages or here in the wiki, it’s easy to find the right answeres. Well, it’s what I think, but I guess I’m not that wrong.

    • Wilbert van Bakel

      I have learned by experience that every solution has advantages and disadvantages. I do like Mandriva a lot and I find myself returning to OpenSUSE after every attempt of adopting Mandriva.

      I do think that OpenSUSE has put a great effort in making management of repositories easy with the ‘one-click’ install web feature.
      The advantage is that I’m able to customize my system as I please: Do I want Firefox 3.5 or 3.6? Do I want OpenOffice 3.1 or 3.3? All I have to do is setup the right repo with ‘one click’.

      LinuxLover, if management of the repo’s is key factor for you, then select the distro that fits your needs. We all have different reasons for our preferences.

    • John Layt

      Yast / Software Repositories / Add / Community Repositories / then tick the ones you want, what’s so hard about that?

      Or if you find them in the Wiki or Build Service the on-click install button automatically adds the repos for you and allows you to choose to leave them configured afterwards.

      I can’t remember the last time I had to manually type in a repo address, unlike the Kubuntu boxes I support.

    • Joe

      Yast is most likely one of the most well thought out package systems I’ve ever worked with. I have the ability to shop and compare so to speak. I can load up all of the community repositories and look at what each one has to offer. You do have to be careful not to break your install. I tend to stick to the most current releases of software however you need to keep track of the different versions each repository offers. If you are careful you can update the system to a much more current state and not update the OS itself. OK, What did I just say? Happy Linixing!

  4. euklidis

    aMSN does not work. I have a TkCximage problem. It says that it has a problem loading it…

  5. Thinkpad

    Wireless networking not working on IBM Thinkpad T41 (Intel 2100) using the KDE4 Live.

    • Paul M

      I had to recompile the kernel and enable the ipw wireless modules to get my Intel ipw2915abg card to work, which was a bit of a surprise, but it did give me the chance to optimise it for my hardware.

  6. andreasma

    I don’t know, why a milestone with known issues (which should be fixed) is called a rc? I think this should be named beta.
    A rc should be ready for productive use (from the qa-view).

    • Bobby

      Actually I do agree with you. the known issues should be solved before it’s called a RC. I have installed the RC via update but I haven’t been able to test it yet because I have the same problem that i have been habing with installing the nvidia driver. i restarted, got the command line, tried to install the nvidia driver but there is some kernel problems. I will solve that tomorrow but it should be done in a way that the system falls back to the Vesa driver if the nvidia isn’t installed but instead I got only the comand line. Not really a good idea for Linux newbies.

      • mukk

        Use this, this might help You
        http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA/The_hard_way

      • Eliasse Diaite

        For all those users trying to install drivers manually, make sure you have a working development environment set up correctly and the kernel development as well as the kernel source packages installed.

        In order to fall back to the vesa driver, remove the nvidia driver first and configure again the X11 window with SaX2.

        A lot of things are mentioned in this page and described as bugs, but they are not.What I notice is the lack of experience of using a Linux distribution. There is always an installable nvidia package for the latest openSUSE distribution from the community repository.

        openSUSE Linux is unbreakable. Have a lot of fun testing this RELEASE CANDIDATE.

        • Ian Scott

          There is always an installable nvidia package for the latest openSUSE distribution from the community repository.

          It seems that there’s no such nvidia package for RC1, unless I’m missing something obvious…

        • cheongi

          Anybody know which community repository has nvidia drivers??? I can’t find kernel drivers anywhere for 11.2. Working on building the hard way….

        • Joe

          Can you say Slackware?

    • Yaoting

      I figured it is called RC because it is ready for production. Lets just try to be realistic, there is no bugless software, chances are commercial software were put on sales before all bugs are fixed. I am glad that the OpenSuSe team tell you upfront that there are a few minor bugs which is not critical to daily life.

      • kobor42

        “Restart fails to restart computer”

        “all repos are lost on update”

        It doesn’t seem to be small bugs.
        With bugs like that it shouldn’t be RC.

        However the creators of commercial softwares are usually aware of a lot of bugs when they release their product.
        If they wouldn’t, no “patcher tool” would have been ever needed.

  7. opensuse convert

    I’ve been using M8 since it was released and been very impressed with it. How do I upgrade from M8 to RC ???

  8. jeff-cao

    I upgrade my M8 to RC1, my network died. The networkmanager indicates wireled and wireless network are conected, but I can’t open any web page. I hate the spam protection box!!!

  9. jik

    I have the same question. I do not understand why KDE 4.3.2 is not included into distribution.

    • gumb

      It has been mentioned elsewhere that the KDE version is a build taken late in September and is almost 4.3.2, hence many of the bugfixes from this later release are included. The final 4.3.2 version couldn’t be included because of some code/string freeze (I’m not an expert at these things) which was scheduled towards end September. This is merely to ensure sufficient time for testing before the final release, with no surprise last minute changes in the code. 11.2 will be technically one step behind Mandriva and possibly other distros with its KDE version but at least it should be more robust.

      On a related note, I put in a request on openFATE shortly before this freeze for Amarok 2.2 to be included. Unfortunately that hasn’t made it either, but that’s life. Hopefully it will be easy enough to update it from one of the KDE repos.

      On an unrelated note, the spam protection on this form isn’t working. Just what is the sum of f-our + s-even supposed to be if it isn’t 11, eleven or e-leven? This is too cryptic for me, or it’s simply broken.

      • Tom

        I could not get this cryptic “Spam protection: Sum of t-wo + f-our ?” annoyance working in Firefox too …. Works like charm in konqueror …. I wonder why ….

  10. jeff-cao

    Have five, man! :)

  11. I have test it and I can’t wait for the finale release

    it’s rock

    cheerz

  12. I have some problems with drivers for ethernet card in my PC with Milestone 8. May be it will easy in RC 1… Thanks Developers, great work!

  13. For those of you who must know:
    Release Candidate is simply software with the potential to be the final version.

    For those of you who want the greatest and newest bleeding edge software — use Fedora. I used it for years. Frankly, I got tired of figuring out all of the issues instead of just using it.

    For the individual who wants a single huge repo: this is not done by design so that installs can be customized for each individual application, such as education, programming, etc.

    Of all 6 operating system families I have administered over two decades, Suse is the most thought out, usable, and out right enjoyable of the lot.

    I also can not get s-ix + s-even to take 13,thirteen, or t-hirteen.

    I did a forced refresh on the page to change the question. let’s see if if that works.

    If Suse needs help with this type of usuer interaction on this site, feel free to contact me.

  14. euklidis

    Another bug… when i paste or add new files on the desktop they do not appear unless i refresh the desktop…

  15. Marius

    Looking better and better. I’m using it since M3, but i have one major problem. I have a time capsule, i can mount it(in my case to /mnt), the time capsule starts spinning, but when i do a “ls” it’s empty. I can copy anything to the empty looking /mnt and when i switch to my osx, i can see what was copied there, but not under linux.
    It was working in M3 and M4, but stopped working in M5 and so on to rc1. I still have a pc installed with M4 i think and it’s working from there. I tried switching back to samba 3.3.x with no luck.

    Any ideas?

  16. Leonid

    Why among “What’s new in openSUSE 11.2″ was mentioned “Support for several social networks like Facebook, Twitter and identi.ca”? What’s new about that?

  17. Bobby

    I have updated from Milestone 8 to RC1. I managed to install the nvidia card but I can’t connct to the internet. Writing from Mint. Has anyone else been having problems with internet/network connections?

  18. madbad

    Bei der Netzwerkkarte RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller ,pci.product_id = 33128 (0x8168) wird wieder r8169 Treiber verwendet statt r8168 sonst alles super danke an die Developer.

  19. obiwan

    If the bugs can be ironed out in time, this is going to be a beautiful release.

    The good things:

    – System is fast and very responsive
    – KDE 4 has become suited for real use at last,regarding both speed and functionality (uff…)
    – Desktop looks pretty
    – Install from USB works

    The bad things:

    – Bug related to selection of German keyboard layout is still not fixed (installed system uses US keyboard layout
    which has kept me almost from logging in after installation!)

    – Novel-made radeonhd driver still doesn’t support 3D for ATI R600/700 GPUs. System crashes when desktop effects
    are enabled or an OpenGL application is started. Please, *get rid* of radeonhd (whose development has stalled)
    and replace it by ati-radeon (or at least give us a package to install ati-radeon from some repo). One pointless
    driver for ATI cards (fglrx) is enough already! The ati-radeon driver *works*. It already offers stable and fast 3D for
    R600/700 GPUs in the latest builds from git.

  20. Bobby

    I have been testing myself. I am impressed by the speed of YaST, especially software management. The system is really fast, very responsive and stable. The theme is okay. I am still waiting for openSuse to give us a “wow” theme. This one is really nice but still not the wow theme in my eyes. I am however happy that the green stripes (openSuse 11.1) are gone.
    It will be a great release but I won’t get too excited until I test the final and see that everything is really working perfectly.

  21. kiv

    There is a bad problem with OpenOffice.org in OpenSuSE 11.2
    When open a Calc file written with Cyrillic text (Bulgarian, Russian etc. …) and you save it (xls or OpenDucument) the infomation in this file get corrupted.
    Next time when you open the file you will have all leters in your text like ‘?’.
    There is no way to convert back the question marks to normal text.
    This way OpenOffice.org from openSuSE 11.2 up to RC 1 symply makes skrap from such files.

    I symply can not figure out where to report this nasty bug – to openSuSE, to Go-oo or to OpenOffice.org by Sun?!?
    Can some one help to report this nasty bug? It will destroy the customers confidence and will be very bad advertizing for openSuSE 11.2 (at least trough the customers who writes in Cyrillic)

  22. Alejandro Montiel

    I downloaded and installed RC1 today and I have to say I am very impressed with it. I had used SuSE for many years starting in 1997 when I first bought it in a bookstore in Goettingen, Germany, but had moved to Ubuntu lately. However, after installation I wanted to add extra keyboard layouts to the system, as I write emails and documents on several different languages on a very regular basis and I was just not able to find a way to do that in YaST. I did some searching and found out that this is not a bug but apparently a planned feature. What is the logic behind this? Do people not write in different languages when using openSuSE? Every other OS I have includes this feature, so why take it away? If I missed something and there is a way to do this, somebody please let me know. Other than this (which is a BIG deal for me), I am very impressed. Great job!

  23. If I install the RC right now, will it auto update to the final release after it comes out?

  24. RC1 is great work and proving really stable on my Lenovo R61e. Only issue currently is the Power Management is borked on the brightness control. I can manage brightness with the Fn combo though. Bug reported. Otherwise this is as good as a release for me. I like the improvements in the installer for newbie clarity. And Yast icon no longer looking like Sys Settings is good.

    FYI: Josh. Just change your repos to the release version and do zypper dup

  25. gumb

    I’m still on 11.1 so I can’t be sure about the keyboard layout problem you mention, but it sounds bizarre, if not unlikely. I have the newer Qt4 YaST and KDE4.3 running so my software setup can’t be too far removed from what’s in 11.2. Under YaST -> Hardware, there is a Keyboard Layout option allowing to set a primary layout and a given number of alternate layouts. Also, under KDE’s System Settings -> Regional & Language, there is another place to configure this. I don’t recall if GNOME has a similar setting as I haven’t used it in a while, but I imagine it does. I’ve had multiple layouts running on SUSE since KDE 3 days without issue, and have a switcher icon in my system tray to cycle through the ones I want.

    The spam protection on this page is still giving problems. Page needs a hard refresh because the first attempt always produces an error.

    • obiwan

      @gumb:

      Well you are right concerning openSUSE 11.1. There is that YaST -> Hardware –> Keyboard Layout settings option
      (actually it’s a sax2 feature). But in openSUSE 11.2 RC it’s gone! There’s no simple way any more to change the
      default keyboard layout *system wide*.

      Sure, you can use KDE’s keyboard layouts (under Personal Settings). But if you have say a German keyboard
      attached to the machine, and several different users using that machine, then each and every one of them is
      required to change his personal settings, provided that he/she can *log into the machine at all* which is
      nearly impossible if the system defaults to using, e.g., the US keyboard layout.

      Sax2 in openSUSE 11.2 RC needs to be fixed to provide the same funcionality as 11.1

      • Sami

        In Opensuse 11.2 keyboard layout is under SYSTEM -> LANGUAGE. There is also keyboard layout option.

        • Alex

          Hi Sami,

          I cannot find a keyboard layout under SYSTEM -> LANGUAGE. The only thing it does is download language packages for the system as a whole, as I just tried that and it started downloading lots of help files and translated packages for lots of applications, this is NOT what I need. All I need is a way to switch keyboard layouts between applications. I write A LOT in Spanish, English and German every single day. Sometimes I am chatting with people in German, answering an email in Spanish or whatever combination at almost the same time. I cannot have a system that won’t let me easily switch keyboard layouts on the fly. If you could please point me to the location of the keyboard layout application, I will be very happy.

          Thanks

    • I just finished to install a file server using opensuse11.2 with language and keyboard layout “English” but the client keyboard layout is Brazilian ABNT, so I installed a second language “pt_BR” and on boot I choose F4 “Keyboard Layout” brazilian. It works! : – )

  26. Tom

    Here are few observations from running KDE4 live on eee pc 901:
    1. it boots and starts without any issues form USB stick (including screen resolution etc.)
    2. Wireless (wi-fi) does not connect using network manager at all (WEP is selected by default instead of being detected correctly as WPA-PSK2). I thought that this should be working out of the box in 2.6.31 kernel.
    3. Ethernet works fine
    4. Network manager does not change task bar icon when connected.
    5. Anything to do with graphics (even scrolling through this web page in Firefox) is terribly slow. CPU is fully taken by xorg and firefox, both maxing out own CPU thread
    6. KDE4 does not adjust to screen resolution of 1024×600 common on net-books. That mean that often you see fixed height windows 724 pixels tall and there is no way to see the bottom of them to be able to press button or ….. One Example: Network manager: Manage Connections: Wireles tab: Add dialog

    I hope it helps (in this forum)
    Tom

    • Tom

      I forgot to mention:
      6. There is no way to set screen size (dpi) without Sax as KDE does not support that. And yes screen sizes are reported wrong often – this (eee pc 901) 9″ screen is configured and used as 15″ one as one example.

      I still have this problem with the final relase on a i586 machine!!
      Making it impossible to install the x86 version.

  28. Hal

    Tried to put RC1 on an HP2133.
    Install looks like it has run successfully (but I was asleep soon after install started). The problem is that disk boot will not successfully go to init 5.
    I think I have used YAST to download all the patches from init 3. It appears the problem is reported in the /var/log/Xorg….log files:
    (EE) UNICHROME(0): ViaCrtcInit: Unsupported chipset
    (EE) Screens found. but none have a usable configuration.

    work around ideas? Please.
    My apologies … I have not absorbed the proper way to investigate a bug and report yet.

  29. duke

    After RC1 update eclipse can’t create Java projects. In M8 everything runned like a sharm. Same problem with RC clean install.
    network problem I solved with command “dhcpcd wlan0″ where wlan0 was my wifi

  30. Hal

    Re-installed on HP2133. Stayed away. All looks good. I’m ready for some fun. Thanks all.

    how does usb booting work…do i just need to copy to the disk and make it bootable…i havnet tried it yet..any solution to make a live usb from windows…the earlier version of opensuse…milestoones i mean didnt work that way..any help?

  32. Jimmy

    Most of the IDEs (Anjuta, Monodevelop, Eclipse) are crashing or not working properly… A lot to do to make a real “stable” release ready.
    And guys, how many comments about this really funny (if not annoying) spam protection system do you need to MAKE SOMETHING !!!

    That’s kind of a show-stopper for Atom 230’s.

    Does anyone know why valgrind doesn’t work?

    valgrind -v true

    I’ve upgraded from 11.1 and it was very easy! now my laptop load faster, firefox 3.5 works great, wifi’s led works fine (didn’t in 11.1) and KDE’s Air theme looks fantastic!

    Now I’m expecting 11.2 final, but I’m already very happy!!

    Thanks a lot openSUSE’s team!! =)

    Version of octave (3.0.2) is not new enough for the qtoctave version in the DVD image.

    Waiting for the final release :) OpenSUSE is getting better and better, great work!
    Although i’ve already installed RC in the laptop and works fine! Will need to format when final comes, or only will have to update from zypper/yast?

    1)
    Did you fixed the bug about the Hard drives which are swap.
    I explain:
    1 HDD
    1 USB hard drive.
    WHen you want to install OpenSuse 11.1 during the installation process Yast show the USB as sda and the HDD as sdb.
    sda should be the HDD and sdb should be the USB Drive. Isn’t it?
    Whatever the way you configured the BIOS. I tried it doesn’t changed anything.

    2)
    In my case, the limitation of 15 partitions is boring. Is it changed?

    3)
    I am a begginner. So I did not notice any EASY way to go back to an “old” configuration.
    For example when you change the graphic card and/or its driver if it is down in grub or LILO you have no way to go back to the last good configuration.
    Like a kind rowback in database if you prefer.

    Can anyone tell me, if there will be the newest kernel in final version of OpenSuse? I`m a bit worried about a bug, concerning Huawei E169 HSDPA Modem

    Thanx
