Progress with openSUSE 11.3

Mar 08, 2010

The openSUSE project has released milestone 3 of its version 11.3 right on schedule. The update to GCC 4.5 has unfortunately caused a few problems.

The openSUSE 11.3 milestone 3 release is the first distro compiled entirely with the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) version 4.5. The update caused a couple of major problems with the openSUSE Build Service and packages that wouldn't compile. The openSUSE project management decided to release nevertheless, specifically to test and make improvements to the new GCC 4.5 upgrade. Milestone 3, therefore, is an actual alpha release to be addressed only by experienced Linux users.

Among the new mileston 3 features are Kernel 2.6.33, the Nouveau drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards and the current GNOME developer version 2.29, including the GNOME shell.

The following bugs are in a known state:

  • YaST log files are truncated.
  • Network installations choke on the wrong SHA1sum for cracklib-dict-full.
  • VirtualBox is uninstallable (details).
  • With the LXDE desktop, rcxdm fails to stop the lxdm login manager (details).

A glance at the Most Annoying Bugs site might be appropriate before installing 11.3. The list may indeed get longer in the next few days. For download, go to the openSUSE Get It page.
