openSUSE 11.1 Beta 4 Slip

October 30th, 2008 by

Just a quick note. The 11.1 release is slipping by at least one day due to a few major problems with the DVDs found during testing.

Specifically:

  • The network is broken during second-stage installation
  • No update repos are registered

There are some further problems with missing branding for GNOME, the slideshow and release notes don’t display, and some bugs that we hope will be ironed out shortly.

We are still aiming to release beta 4 this week, and will be providing further updates as events warrant.

While we don’t like to slip the schedule, we still consider it important to release betas in a condition that allows significant testing. If you’re interested in following openSUSE development and testing more closely, we recommend subscribing to the openSUSE Factory mailing list.

openSUSE 11.1 Beta3 Delayed

October 16th, 2008 by

openSUSE 11.1 beta 3 will be delayed by several days. We originally scheduled the release for today (October 16) but the power outage last Friday left us unable to check in packages temporarily, and pushed the schedule back by several days.

We had a first build this morning and have checked in more than 20 packages to fix the most serious problems. We expect to release the third beta on Monday (October 20), or later, depending on the status of the builds on Friday.

We’ll give an update Friday as to the status of the next beta release. Thanks for your patience, and we look forward to your help in testing and working on openSUSE 11.1 when we release beta 3!
