openSUSE approaching destination – please fasten your seat belts – openSUSE 11.3 RC1 is available

June 17th, 2010 by

Geeko at work

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please fasten your seat belts, the touch down area is in sight we do have clear view and smooth weather conditions. So we expect a smooth landing for the release of openSUSE 11.3 on July 15, 2010. Let’s polish and fine-tune openSUSE 11.3 now. Get the RC1 from our software portal right now!

As usual the most annoying bugs are listed here. But at least till release time coolo couldn’t find more then one bug in this category. Good sign towards a great release in July.

Have a lot of fun!

    Dear opensuse,
    i can use wi-fi in my Hp pavilion dv 8028ea laptop. (Broadcom BCM4321 Wireless Wifi Lan Mini PCI )

  2. 5ar

    Great great thing…lets push it just a bit more into the air for a final release…

  3. oldcpu

    11.3 RC1 is looking promising. I’ve tried the liveCD build-0675 (KDE both 32-bit and 64-bit) on 2 PCs thus far (where it works well), and have 4 more I hope to test it on. Keep up the good work !

  4. Woohoo… zypper dup … updating started =)
    Thx.

  5. AnKa

    repos changed -> zypper dup -> RC1
    nouveau -> nomodeset -> nvidia
    All works fine out of the box.
    Good work – thanks to all openSUSE people ;-)

    • What is “nomodeset” in your message? interesting

      p.S> Update comleted. All functions works fine. Thx.

      • zoehneto

        nomodeset means you turn of KMS (kernelmodesettings). This option is needed in the kernel bootarguments to use the proprietary nvidia driver instead of nouveau.

  6. great!!
    this is what i’m waiting for, i wanna taste for the release candidate one. and i hope the final relase will be better one on july.
    thanks for everyone with your hardworking :D

    One negative point about 11.3 which I predict will cause some pain and bad press … and that is the current poor hot plug auto mounting capability of USB sticks. There was a major regression here between openSUSE-11.2 and 11.3. This regression (step backward) is especially PAINFUL for business users who don’t have time to mess around with command line manual mounting of USB sticks during a meeting, when their laptop screen is displayed on the wall for all to see.

    Whats the plan here? Will SuSE-GmbH give this priority to Fix? It does need fixing.

    • Yes and there isn’t an “automatic” loading of CD/DVD’s either. Matter of fact I can’t find them at all. I placed a DVD (VMware) in the drive and … nothing. I looked in “My Computer” and it did not even have the usages of the hard disc like in previous releases. All that is there is:

      Disk Information
      Device Filesystem Total space Available space

      with nothing following. In 11.2 there was a USB notification in the Task Bar. It was not there in most of the Milestone releases and it is not there in this RC1 release. I can’t see that this is a valid system without use of these peripheral devices.

      I followed the “Normal” Install procedures as I always have since version 5 of SuSE. It has just been in these 11.3 releases that I have had so much trouble with the optical / USB drives. If there are changes in the way these CD/DVD drives are handled, it needs to be announced and described. Don’t believe that this is not ready for the General Public.

      • Andreas Jaeger

        Could you file a bugreport at bugzilla.novell.com, please? Which bug number is it?

        • Bug 615446 Submitted. I filed a Bug myself since I could not find one. Can’t believe that no one else has had this problem.

        • Andreas Jaeger

          Either nobody had the problem – or everybody considered it obvious ;). Thanks for reporting it!

        • As usual, as soon as I submit a Bug Report I find the Answer. Down a little further oldcpu is conversing with others and he reported something from another Forum conversation about HAL missing. I checked it out and installed HAL along with gimp-module-hal. Re-booted and now my HD info and the CD/DVD are listed in the My Computer -and- I can mount the drives and read them. Still -NOT- convenient for a casual or new user for use and understanding. I presume this will be fixed before release.

        • It didn’t stay fixed. Today I put a music CD in and the CD/DVD drive could not be found.

    lvm bug is an absolute showstopper

    > auto mounting capability of USB sticks.

    Stepping back a bit from the above quoted comment of mine …

    I’ve been told by some other 11.3 RC1 users that this works. I noted I tested on five PCs, but I only tested from the liveCD. Its possible the USB hot plug automount problem I’ve seen is an openSUSE-11.3 RC1 liveCD specific limitation, and the hot plug auto mount may work on an actual installation.

    I need to test that!

    • Lake-end

      For me USB hotplugging does not work on KDE4 livecd OR after I have installed that. This definately should be a showstopped error fro the release. It will look very unprofessional if OS11.3 can not even mount USB drives from the getgo!

    • regus_patoff

      I am using an EeePC 1005 and have had no problem with USB memory sticks or an optical drive being recognized. I have been using 11.3 M3 through M7.

  10. Orlando

    Hi
    I’ve been testing since M1 on my Asus g50jx on dual boot with win7 and after install, on the 1st reboot, it crashes!

    Also, got a warning on grub boot install after 128GB – that it could not load? Is that it? It didn’t happen before. :^S

    Tested it on virtualbox, though, and it looks pretty awesome. Good work.

    oSuse is by far my fav dist.

  11. Eliasse Diaite

    Thanks a lot to the development team for the great preview of the next release of our beloved openSUSE. Just for the users making requests now. Please use the mailing lists early enough if you find bugs or similar things or have a wish for a missing feature.About the mounted devices. They can be found under ” System information screen and are accessible via the file manager Dolphin or Konqueror.

    Everything works find on my desktop computer after a flawless update with 64 Bit DVD.

    Now a message toward the Linux Community: openSUSE Linux is unbreakable. Have a lot of fun..Buddies of the best Distro.

  12. thehighhat

    This is a great milestone for openSUSE!

    but the broken LVM poses a major problem. i am bit surprised that more users are not finding lvm/udev breakage to be a problem.

    anyways… great job team!

  13. @thehighhat +1

    I was hopping to install M7 and replace 11.2 on my work laptop and maybe help a little by reporting some bugs(if found), but with the LVM bug it made the release completely useless for me. Now RC1 is out with the same HUGE bug.

    Nothing else to do/say than wish you good luck and keep up the good work.

  14. Giel

    In general RC1 woeks fine. The new opensuse branding looks great! I did have some hardware problems. My intel wifi module was not recognized and did not work out of the box. The Knetworkmanager does not want to start. I used Yast to configure my wifi. A very annoying bug is that tapping on my touchpad doesn’t work. Activating tapping in the touchpad configuration doesn’t work.

    • chris

      I found the Knetworkmanager worked OK in the 32 bit version but crashed in the 64 bit version

  15. laukas

    I installed openSUSE 11.3RC1 GNOME LiveCD. Then I first time closed the lid of my laptop, It crashed: grafical interface disapeared, computer not responded to any keyboard key. So I forced to turn of my computer. After turn on, „fsck failed“, date switched to 2010-06-09, time also incorrect… But I can’t reproduce this error.
    Then I tryied to synchronize time via NTP server, I found, that It gets errors in saving configuration. But maybe this error is related to errors in filesystem atfer force turn off.

  16. ac

    That LVM bug should have been resolved before an RC version. Hopefully the “do the volume creation phase twice” workaround will work like it did in M7.

  17. roman

    Well, for me it’s rather a disappointment. I just got a new ThinkPad T410 and two things don’t work, at least out of the box. One is not that important – the built-in web cam. I don’t think I’m gonna use it anyway, so it’s minor for me. The other one is a show-stopper – the battery was not recognized, so no power management, which is critical for a laptop.
    Again, I could probably make them work, because they do work in Ubuntu and Mandriva (two LiveCDs I had). But I want such stuff to work out of the box…
    Then Firefox crashed without any apparent reason…
    Then the computer stopped responding and I had to use the Power button…
    I’ll definitely try the final release (because openSUSE rocks!), but I’m going to install something else for now.

    BTW, if someone is interested, I installed from DVD openSUSE 11.3 RC1 64bit and then tried KDE LiveCD 11.3 RC1 64bit. Ubuntu (10.04) and Mandriva (2010.0) LiveCDs were both 32bit.

    Further to this comment:

    > About the mounted devices. They can be found under ” System information
    > screen and are accessible via the file manager Dolphin or Konqueror.

    … actually, I had looked there. That did not help by itself, as there was no such entry (not initially).

    But it was pointed out to me on openSUSE forums ( http://forums.opensuse.org/get-help-here/pre-release-beta/440532-usb-devices-unabe-mount-when-plugged-11-3-rc1.html ) that the 11.3 RC1 liveCD purportedly does not come with the rpms “hal” nor “gimp-module-hal” and those need to be installed in order to get the hotplug automounting working. Those rpms of course are in the snapshot repository for 11.3 RC1. Once those rpms are installed, then the advice provided works.

    Its good news for this to be working, as for an openSUSE business user (like myself) whose laptop display is showing for 20 to 30 people on a big screen during a meeting (where Linux is unfamiliar to most the other people in the meeting), its good NOT to have to mount via a command, but rather have an easy hot plug automount. I’m happy to read this can be made to work with those rpms installed.

    • Lake-end

      Yes very nice BUT this should definitely work straight out of the box!

      • oldcpu

        I’m thinking that this may be a good entry for the Release note for the GM version? …ie advise users whose hotplug automount is not working, to (1) try looking under “System information > screen and are accessible via the file manager Dolphin or Konqueror ” and if not there, then (2) install the rpms “hal” and “gimp-module-hal” and reboot.

        Thats assuming it is not in the release note already.

    I’m not Chucktr, but after i opened news from RSS i’ve all fields for comment filled with his name/email/website.

    I remember this issues before, so it’s seems like regression..

    Chucktr, notify admins about this issue, pls..

  23. With the CD/DVD problem somewhat fixed I was able to Install VMware. However, part of the initial start-up is a compilation of some VMware modules. Unfortunately, this failed in M7 and now also in RC1. I get a dialog stating that the C header files do not match the running kernel. I have not created a kernel. Just using the one from the installation. I presumed that it and the source code would match … as they did in the past. Any ideas or comments?

    • wplittle

      VMware has a kernel module that must be loaded for it to work. The VMware Workstation distribution includes pre-built modules for many distribution versions, but these come from VMware, not from openSUSE. The message you are getting is because VMware does not have modules for the kernel you’re running with RC1 included in the installation package (either because your VMware installer is from before RC1 shipped, or because VMware hasn’t created modules yet).

      In any case, no big deal. All you have to do is install the kernel-source package that matches with your running kernel (if you’re using the stock kernel then there will be an associated package in the distribution), then re-run the VMware installer and point it to the kernel sources (generally the defaults in the installer point to the right place). The VMware installer will then proceed to build a module for you. (You may need to ensure that you have the basic development tools (make, gcc, etc.) installed as well.)

      Hope this helps….

      • Yes, VMware has some modules that need to be built. However, the complaint is not about the ‘C’ header files from VMware, it is about the openSuSE header files.

        ============
        C header files matching your running kernel were not found.
        Refer to your distribution’s documentation for installation instructions.
        ============

        After clicking OK we get:

        ============
        Kernel Headers 2.6.34-9-desktop

        Kernel headers for version 2.6.34-9-desktop were not found. If you
        installed them in a non-default path you can specify the path
        below. Otherwise refer to your distributions documentation for
        installation instructions and click Refresh to search again in
        default locations.
        ============

        During the Installations of openSuSE I ALWAYS include the source files.

        I have worked/played with VMware since version 2, most heavily with 3.2 and 5.5.9. I am now using their latest and greatest version 7.0 and 7.1 and they work fine in 11.2. They would work fine in this version IF I could figure out how to make the ‘C’ Header files match the kernel. There must be something that is left out that signifies that these header files are correct. I seem to recollect something about a file being created by cloneconfig or makeprepare, or one of those, that makes the files match. I just can’t remember fully and I haven’t found it in my notes or Web searches … yet. Was hoping that someone else had experienced the problem and could properly re-direct me.

        • Robin

          I think the headers were split out, kernel-devel or kernel-desktop-devel… try it out!

        • Nope. That is not the case. The various kernel versions are to handle different levels and capabilities of the hardware and CPU. The source code is “supposed” to be all in one place with settable flags indicating what you want the final result to be. At one time, during my previous VMware module compilations, the process detected that I had a Multi-core machine and it automagically selected PAE. It doesn’t do that anymore and I’m not sure who is at fault. Me, VMware or SuSE. Anyway, when the VMware compile is called up the first time VMware is executed … it is looking for the C header files that “match the running kernel” in the standard places. When it does not find them you are given the opportunity to tell them where they might be found. I, personally, have found the headers and stated where they are. Still doesn’t recognize them. So, all I can assume is; that the kernel that gets installed, does not match the source code that was received with it. Had these same problems with version 11.2 and never did get it to work properly till the Final Release. Guess I’ll have to wait till July … unless someone can come up with a workable solution. One thing that would be nice; what are the proper steps to compile an openSuSE kernel. Seems that the way that I have done it in the past is no longer correct. If those steps could be presented then I could build a kernel from this code and that would guarantee that they match. Just a thought. I can compile a Vanilla Kernel but as of late have had trouble with the openSuSE version.

        • Ok. Sorry for any and all trouble(s). I have decided that there is something wrong with VMware cause I have run through the Compile and it works! Don’t know why VMware can’t see/find the C header files when they are there in plain sight where they should be. I’ll move my complaints to the VMware group.
          Thanks and Have fun,
          Chuck

    Why is it not possible to set up the X screen in 11.3. And where is Sax2!
    I have Nvidia, but had to give up to find how to set up x server

    • Eliasse Diaite

      That is done automagically. I have a NVIDIA graphic card like you and it is recognized and configured automatically, I can even use the open source driver NOUVEAU on my desktop computer without any problem.

      The recent version of the X Server does the job for you, so that you do not need SaX2, which does not exit any more as a separate package.

      • Bobby

        I updated from the latest Milestone to the RC, reboot and got a black screen. I tried to reinstall the nVidia driver but no luck. I get a GUI only in Safe Mode. If I had Sax then I could configure it to at least use the VESA drive but no Sax, The video driver hell is alive and well and that sucks!

  25. Eliasse Diaite

    A CALL TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM. I NOTICE THE DELETION OF AN IMPORTANT MODULE OF YaST AND I AM AFRAID THAT IS A WRONG DECISION. THE MODULE YaST-Repair WHICH ALLOWS DISPLAYING THE KERNEL LOG AND THE SYSTEM MESSAGE LOG SHOULD NOT BE SUPPRESSED WITHOUT A REPLACEMENT. BOTH FILES CAN BE ACCESSED WITH OTHER WAYS BUT IT IS SIMPLY MORE PRACTICAL AND USER FRIENDLIER TO DO THAT THROUGH YaST.

    IS THERE A REPLACEMENT IN YaSTWEB?

    PLEASE GIVE A STATEMENT ABOUT THE IMPORTANT FEATURE. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

    Will FLIGHT SIMULATOR X + ACCELERATION be utilized by SuSe 11.3???.

  29. Bobby

    I am a fan and openSuse user for a long time but I have to say that somehow the opensuse guys have gotten accustomed to releasing with show stoppers (like the ones described by some of the posts here) over the years. I hope that there is still time enough to fix those bugs before the final release.
    The positive for me is that the artwork is my taste, at last ;)
    Please fix thouse bugs and this release will be a great one.
    Thanks.

    I tested 11.3 RC1 and here are couple issues I encountered in addition to what others mentioned already.

    1. Openoffice “still” has issue with Klipper in KDE4. Once you perform a copy-and-paste function, the file dialogue function such as “opening a file” becomes very slow. Here’s the link describing same issue in 11.2

    http://forums.opensuse.org/get-help-here/applications/431860-strange-openoffice-org-kde4-behavior.html

    2. Openoffice’s Impress has an issue editing presentation with Korean characters. After you input the Korean characters in the text box, you can’t seem to select it.

    Hi,
    i downloaded RC1 dvd for x86 and installed in last virtualbox (3.2.4).
    Installed went ok with default parameters.
    After restart the machine is not booting (black screen).
    Has this been seen before ?
    Thanks ;)

    G’day and hats off to the community

    After a rather long time of not using Linux on a desktop, I found some spare minutes to install this drop on my Laptop inside a vmware instance. I downloaded the RC1 4GB ISO DVD and the installation and setup worked flawlessly. However, there are a few things that sort of caused my attention:

    1. Whenever I have installed OpenSUSE on any of my machines, the fonts are always messed up, at least in size. The solution is most of the time a quick forcing of 96DPI in the “Fonts” section of the “Appearance” configuration part of the “Configure Desktop” application. I remember that in former days, similar issues appeared with regard of having installed and activated the nvidia driver or not. This is not the case in this setup since it is running in a vmware instance without vmware tools installed currently.

    2. As other people mentioned, hal is not installed or enabled. I have not tracked latest Linux developments, so I do not know if things have changed with regard to device discovery and auto-installation of mount points, however I would assume that in 2010 where most other desktop operating systems provide such a functionality, OpenSUSE be wise following that trend. People with the knowledge how to set up mount points or unwilling to accept automatic device mounting are little and mostly knowledgeable enough to address the issue in 2 minutes, however the large bulk of users might be put off by such default settings. My personal opinion, so feel free to ignore. What is slightly intriguing is that even after installing hal components and starting the hal deamon, installing the vmware tools from the “VMware Player” GUI did not cause KDE or rsyslogd for that matter (or through kernel messages) to spit out any message of changes in new mountable devices detected.

    3. I decided to change the “Appearance” to Cleanlooks, which much to my surprise caused OpenOffice to cease working. After some digging (I had hoped that quality assurance processes for OpenSUSE development would catch such showstoppers), I came across following posts/bug reports from other users which seem to indicate (with “to me” unacceptable solutions) the issue at hand:

    http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-bugs-dist@lists.debian.org/msg789899.html
    http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=98685

    4. To a certain degree I wish there was more transparency through documentation with regard to installing a software stack or suite that actually allows one to watch encrypted DVDs. My steps, as have been for the past few years, to install such a stack involves adding the “packman” repository and then selecting the necessary software and “non-free” packages that go along with the decryption process. I always wonder if such installation processes could be facilitated further towards usability of the 98% of people that just want a system that works like they expect; questionable maybe from the point of view of an adept Linux power user, however key to those people that maybe show other benefits (than developing or bug hunting) for a Linux distribution.

    While none of the live-systems I had tried to boot my Lenovo T61p laptop off a USB stick had worked this year, at least this vmware installation offered me once again a workable Unix workstation, just in case I need to process files using command line tools quicker than I could ever perform in my Windows installation, or if I decide to pick up Open Source Software development again in future ;).

    Thanks for your commitment and good luck in addressing the remaining issues of this drop.

    Hi openSUSE-Team,

    I still use the old version (11.2) and I have problems with the graphic drivers. I always get vertical stripes on the display when I scroll up or down or when I move windows.

    The notebook I use is the IBM Thinkpad T40 with the “ATI Mobility Radeon 7500″. Is this problem solved in the new distribution?

    Furthermore, the Fn-buttons doesn’t work anymore, since the last 2 or 3 distributions. So I can’t blank the screen nomore and suspend it only with the software-buttons in the menu.

    Can I safe more power with this laptop and openSUSE 11.3?

    Thanks a lot and have a nice day!

    • beefstick

      Stripes are due to the ATI driver. Same problem here while using ati drivers (standard and oss), when I switch to an Nvidia card the problem is gone.

      • Anonymous

        Thanks. But, do you mean “Nvidia DRIVER” or “Nvidia CARD”? I can change the driver but not the card, its a Notebook. :)

        Which one did you use? How can I change it?

    My main question is whether they fixed the atrocious bug that was in 11.2 that prevented me from any updates, even after applying any work-around I could find. I have actually had to use Ubuntu for the last several months. (at least it worked but it is like driving a Smart car after getting used to a Lincoln)A secondary question is whether Kopete has been fixed so Yahoo doesn’t drop and re-establish connections every 5 minutes or so.

  38. Philipp

    I hope there will be a second RC for all LVM users. The LVM issue is a real showstopper and makes it impossible for a lot of users to test this RC.

  39. Marcin

    Hi,

    First of all, thank’s a lot for a nice looking RC1 ! I’ve just switched from Ubuntu 10.04 and must say OpenSUSE looks much more stable. Well done!

    I’ve been using the RC1 64bit dvd version for a few days now (Gnome desktop), and it looks like there is a problem with the gnome-keyring-sharp library (this is mono stuff). This library is used by Docky, which I have successfully compiled from sources and was able to run. However, one of the docklets, the Gmail one, fails to access the keyring when saving my password. This obviously makes the whole docklet useless as it can’t reach gmail at all.

    Now, after a few hours of digging, I have found that this was already a known issue in Ubuntu. A known and a solved one, too. For more details what the problem was, you can read here:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/docky/+bug/529080

    and here:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-keyring-sharp/+bug/536925

    I think I could actually cite one of the comments from the first url, which explaines what is the problem with this library:


    The problem is a change in libgnome-keyring, commit da22a40250da283a502ecb35add5e6548c654c6b, which removed the ability to talk to the gnome-keyring-daemon socket. This has broken gnome-keyring-sharp which interfaces with the socket, as well as all Adobe AIR apps too, for the same reason.

    As I said, the Ubuntu team has already fixed that in their package, and I guess a similar fix would be very welcome in OpenSUSE, too? Shall I file a bug report for this?

  40. AA

    As long as I can perform a NON-VANILLA Installation and have it NOT FALL OVER and WITHOUT extraneous and erroneous ERRORS or dumping me in a TEXT BASED INSTALLATION that can cope without the presence on ANY DHCP services being offered on the LAN – I will be happy – If an application or two falls over I dont care!
    If we can add Yast functions to a ready and waiting KDE4 Desktop and NOT duplicate Function or create a choice of either a KDE4 Fix or Yast Fix – I will be further impressed! Your Serve I believe!!!

  41. regus_patoff

    I find that the new layout of YaST is rather cluttered and a pain to use on a netbook.

  42. gfdggfdg

    Is it time to start a pool for the number of regressions?

    How about the number of packages in the official repos that are bugged and about 2 years old?

  43. I would be grateful if some one can inform me that if I install the openSUSE 11.3 RC1 will it be upgraded to the final distribution release.
    Thanks & Regards,

    11.3 RC1

    1) Wireless will not configure on Thinkpad T42.

    ifup eth1 returns the following:

    eth1 device: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (rev 04)
    eth1 starting wpa_supplicant
    nl80211: Driver does not support authentication/association or connect commands
    Failed to initialize driver interface
    ELOOP: remaining socket: sock=4 eloop_data=0x80f6970 user_data=0x80f6690 handler=0x80b7800

    2) Please, Please, Please, Please return the symbolic link source name to the detail list of konqueror and add to dolphin. This terrible oversight was a feature casualty of the KDE 3.5->4.x work.

    3) A small but annoying thing: in 11.3 you can no longer drag items from the menu to a panel when the classic menu style is selected — worked ok in 11.2.

    USB works perfectly on my Toshiba laptop with RC1. I did not do a fresh install however I updated from M7 so that may be the difference. I’m downloading the DVD at the moment to install on my desktop and will report back after the install.

    This looks promising, apart from the LVM bug. I was going to test it at the weekend because I’ve had quite a few file system errors on my main hard disk, so I thought I might as well jump on an RC and put it on my spare disk. Unfortunately, I can’t get past the partitioning because of freezes, then I reboot and can’t get past the timezone setting, then I can’t get past the language setting, and sometimes I can’t even get the install screen to appear.

    I don’t know if it’s a bad disk or what, but the MD5 on the disk (Gnome 64-bit live CD) checks out, as does the “Check install media” option. I can’t get any diagnostic info since everything locks up, and I don’t want to put in a distracting bug that is most likely to just be my fault. Maybe I’ll have better luck with RC2 at the end of the week.

    With all the major bugs and serious regressions looks like 11.3 is the end of opensuse as a viable distro.

    pity.

    As always you just have to use Yast to add community repository pacman, after that you can install all codecs you need.

    oS_11.3 x86 or x86_64 are not recognizing hot & plug devices as Flash drives as oS_11.2 use to do it
