SuSE, openSUSE And another popular Linux distribution pushes a new release out the door. This time around, it's openSUSE, as they just released version 12.1. Other than the usual latest and greatest version of all the open source desktops and associated tools, there's a few other interesting tidbits in this release as well.

FAIL!

Downloaded iso image with torrent and burned into dvdrw. So far so good. Started my Dell XPS 1210 with 4GB of ram with this DVD and it booted up fine. Started installer...BLACK SCREEN... Started installer in VESA...BLACK SCREEN. Started installer in text mode- finally something to do. Autopartitioning shrinked my old windows ntfs partition- nay I want TO DELETE IT dumbass. Deleted partition and created ext4 partitions as usual- installation and... ERROR 400- W.F?! Second attempt, at least there is no ntfs already, NEW INSTALLATION - err, it does not use already existing partitions but made new ones... W.F?! OK managed to create new partitions from scratch and installed OpenSuse successfully...

Reboot...ERROR can't find root partition... WHAT THE FUCK!??!!!?!=!=!=?!?

FAIL!!!

Fortunately I burned this CRAP onto my RW disk so I can delete this bullshit out of my way.

P.S. BTW I have LPIC-1 certificate with maximum points. So no, I am not computer illiterate.
