openSUSE 11.0 – Beta 1

OpenSUSE 11.0 beta 1 was released today, and it’s available through the openSUSE site. All openSUSE users are invited to test it, with particular care about the installer, the package manager and the audio system, which now implements PulseAudio. The most annoying bugs are reported here.

Note: If you use VirtualBox, there’s a simple fix to be able to use the X server. At the end of the installation, the system will present a text based login screen. As reported by Benjamin here, it’s enough to login as root and use these commands to fix X configuration:

sax2 -m 0=vesa
rcxdm restart
