Beta to final release?


Will it be possible to update to the final release of Opensuse if I install one of the betas now? Is it easy?

Yes, but you will have to wait months though.

It's easier than a release because you don't have to register and it appears to be a lot cleaner than 9.3 and detects all my hardware OK. (Gigabyte board, amd64, sata, dvd writer, PS2 key and mouse, etc) Went flawlessly. Same old problem with screen horizontal positioning though I always have this on different machines, graphics cards, displays and laptops though, whereas with Mandrake doesn't seem to have that problem.

Ploding through 10.0b3 x86_64 no problems so far. Like it, but want to know where my mail file on
Kmail, thunderbird so I can move them over.

No problem so far with Firebird in case the writer who did have problems on 9.3 wants to try this beta out.
