Opensuse And 2011 As The Year Of Linux – Does 11.4 make the grade?

Filed under

If there is to be such as thing as the year of linux, in 2011 or otherwise, then opensuse 11.4 is not it.

The installation was fine, the package selection was fine, the desktop was nicely presented.

However, in order of appearance:

Poor dialogue response on automatic updates – did they work or not, i have no idea?

> Three packages may or may not have been updated, hard to tell from disjointed dialogue.

Skype installed properly via YAST, but would not start.

> Installing libpng solved skype problem, but why did this happen?

Rest here
