I just installed SuSE 10.1 Beta8 on a spare partition this weekend. There were some bumps, but I finally got most everything settled in. My fonts got about twice as big (I’m using the same home partition as for my old Mandriva install), half the development libraries I needed didn’t get installed, and it takes forever and a day for yast to download updates.
But the main thing that’s irritating me now is this stupid beagle daemon. Can’t somebody figure out how to do data indexing without sucking up more than 50% of my CPU usage every 30 seconds? I turned of kat at soon as I installed Mandriva 2006 because of that problem, and now I need to turn off beagle for the same exact reason.
