openSUSE 12.1 released
As always there are some pain points you should be aware of too:
- KDEPIM (Kontact, KMail, KOrganizer etc.) of KDE SC 4.7 is now fully ported to using Akonadi and you should expect some problems and probably do some testing before you upgrade/migrate your production machines.
- Touchpad tapping is disabled by default. To enable it, make sure synaptiks is installed and go to systemsettings => Input Devices => Touchpad and enable tapping.
- The new default init system systemd might cause you some grief.
- Sun/Oracle Java is no longer included in the distro because of a license change. If OpenJDK is not working for you, you’ll have to get Oracle Java from Oracle.com.
opensuse-guide.org is mostly updated for 12.1, the missing parts will be added/updated soon.
Join us and help make sure openSUSE 12.2 is even better than 12.1 when it’s released 8 months from now (July 2012)!
