For anyone interested 11.4 is alive on ftp.heanet.ie and possibly other mirrors too by now.

I have it installed for a couple of hours now. All seems in place. There were a few hoops to jump through like the ati driver and flash was stubborn too.

For any ati users follow this guide

http://lizards.opensuse.org/2010/07/15/ati-hd57xxx-flgrx-drivers-under-11-3/

and for flash this one

http://lizards.opensuse.org/2010/12/17/adobe-flash-64-bits-under-opensuse-64bits-11-211-311-4factory/

So far the system feels very solid. Which after too iffy RC releases I have to say is very welcome. The packman repo is up and running too. So far so good.

Are you using Kde or Gnome? I take it your running the 64 bit version from your links. Perhaps you could give us a rundown of your setup.

Oh BTW, Welcome to the Forum! Cool

My system is:
amd athlon 2 x4 - 630
radeon 5750 1GB ddr5
4gb ddr3
2 x 1 TB hdd - not raid
2 x dvd rw
asus M4A785TD-V-EVO - mobo
#all drives are sata#

dual booting

Windows 7 sp1 64 bit
openSuSE 11.4 64 bit kde

os run from sda1
ntfs partitions remain read only apart from one which i change ownership on in suse. Although I generally change fstab during setup as required usually.
Both os installs act as redundancy for each other (in theory).
Windows is mainly for gaming. Linux was for everything else as I don't play games as much as I used to.

I joined previously (tuxisity admin) but I forgot login and/or it was probably deleted Wink as I forgot to login for a while.
Primarilly I have used ubuntu but to be honest (canonical) are becoming a law onto themselves and change defaults as they please with little regard for users who have go used to certain setup defaults. If anyone has tried unity then well for me that was the last straw. I just don't like it. To be honest it's fine on a netbook but for a desktop it's horrible.
Gnome 3 however, although similar to unity or vice versa it is a lot nicer and looks and reacts a lot better. You can get a livecd from gnome which I think is suse based and for alpha (when i tried it) run very well indeed.

For suse I had initial errors in the install but it went on and installed. The failed packages were easilly mopped up in yast.
You may need to change the network manager as it defaults from what I can tell to ifup/down - change in yast after enabling knetwork manager if needed.
But as I say so far there is a better feeling to the who;e system than in the rc's.
Now just need to ask the question why suse uses a nice green wallpaper and the default blue highlights!

Yes, I recall that you were a member before. It's possible when we changed Forum hosting last year you did not get updated.

Interesting about your Radeon graphics. I have been wondering if the problem with getting them working was ironed out. I know it caused a lot of problems in the past for folks trying out Linux. Sorry to hear of the Ubuntu issues.

the ATI drivers 11.1 on now have a tear fix which has eliminated the tearing in video and generally on the desktop too. A huge improvement.

A new release! Maybe forum traffic will increase. Smile If not, I guess that might mean the new release is pretty solid? I guess I need to get ready to upgrade. The desktop is still running 11.0. Just need to wait for a little while to see if any problems pop up. Smile

Thanks for the head's up Tux. And the report.

Lots of things to search through on Tux's link. The direct link is

http://ftp.heanet.ie/pub/ftp.opensuse.org/opensuse/distribution/11.4/iso/


I know have the 32 and 64 bit torrents downloading.

Or you can always wait the extra 10 hours or so and get the official link. My download won't be done in time to install today, but at least I can help out the torrent when the official rush hits. There are very few seeders right now.

Haven't even downloaded 11.4 yet. I completely switch distro's awhile back so no big hurry for me. Will probably install it anyways just because...

Ok, after 3 installs(due to me breaking most everything) I finally have a fully functional 11.4 install.
The ATI drivers offered in the repo will not work with my new hardware so I'm using the open source driver and it works quite well.
After breaking things I was finally able to get my onboard sound working mostly(some games still have issues)
I've also noticed that some other pkgs. don't seem to function quite right such as ISOmaster.
Was a bit bummed to discover that "XMMS" is not supported in this release(odd that it included in the repos anyways) but on the other hand I have my "Weechat" back and working wonderfully bounce
There have been other pkg issues but the fixes are comming down the line(updates) quickly.
All in all I'll give the newest release 2 afro afro
after all it is pretty cool.
As always "Thank you for flying Penguin Air"

Thanks for the report, welan. No XMMS is a bummer. Sad

Fotr ATI users there is now a working way to update to the latest ish ati driver using yast

http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:ATI_drivers#The_Easy_Way_.28GUI.29

It worked fine for me. Radeon HD 5750 and my mate using his 6850.

As welan points out there are some issues. Some just mad. My first install I ended up removing pulse and reverting to alsa. Seems Radeon HD cards built in audio becomes default. So you need to correct this via settings and mixer.
To me it seems I'm having more issues than ever with any linux distro. There appears no continuity or consistancy from one release to the next. The old issue of works now doesn't now does from release to release has finally become enough for me to call it a day. Seems to be pointless to have to boot back and forwards to a different OS to something the other can't do.

A heads up if you have a blu-ray drive. I have been unable to get any playback for blu-ray discs. Apparently this is possible but to be honest the hoops you need to jump through is beyond easy.

After prevaricating for a week or so I installed 11.4 on my production machine yesterday. Clean install, quickest ever, +- 20 minutes to desktop. Proprietary Nvidia drivers installed from repo without a hitch. Very slight chop in flash player dissapeared after flash update. Otherwise rock solid no other issues. I haven't made up my mind about pulse audio yet, seems an honest attempt to automate sound management for noobs, but interface is basic and options severely limited, otherwise sound is fine. I may end up having to junk it when I install Skype, as Skype does not work with pulse audio, also I need to see if I have sound when I connect up to the TV via HDMI. I've found the alsa/phonon/kmix set up in the past worked with everything.
