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.

Dude, i never said it failed to detect anything. It found partitions just fine. I was complaining about the fact that even if I chose to do my own partitioning, the installer would not let me assign mount points because it had assigned those earlier, while it was being "smart"

I would have expected it to "unset" anything it had set and let me do my own thing.

I was also complaining that it would not let me set the drive where I wanted (while still being in manual partitioning mode) to install GRUB. It wanted to go to /dev/sda and that's that.

Also, a virtual machine is not an option. If I want to test how well stuff runs under say, Crossover Games, I would not get very far now, would I.

PS: Any idea on why the heck it assumes that my machine time is in UTC even though the checkbox for this option is not checked ?

Yeah, I know,I did not RTFM...

Strange how some distros manage to make installing fast and almost idiot proof while still allowing for flexibility when it is needed and some make you fight them even while attempting installation. Must be a "for the pros thing".
