Well, it would seem that OpenSUSE12.1 is now available. Fortunately, having a cold does not prevent me from getting it via bittorrent. I think I'll give it a go in a VM before I risk it on any real hardware.

Yes indeed, it looks good to me; a fresh dose of openSUSE goodness.

Let me know how you get on. I usually delay upgrading for a while, so that builders of the more esoteric packages can build for the latest version.

Install in a VM hanging at the moment. It's done it at exactly the same point twice in a row now. Md5sum is fine and media check also tells me the iso is okay. I'm not sure exactly what the problem is yet. Hmm.

Unable to find any easy resolution to the DVD install hanging, I downloaded the GNOME live CD version, this ran just fine and the installer also worked. Of course, being in a VM, no acceleration was available, so I got the fallback GNOME look. It is interesting (to me anyway) that opeSUSE's fallback GNOME look is like the default look of old and not like openSUSE's customised GNOME.

Extra repos and such like seem to work fine. If anything the package management (for which there is an update) seems to work faster than in the 11.4, though whether this is due to having a GTK front-end rather than the dodgy KPackagekit effort, I don't know.
