openSUSE 11.2 has been released today!

Read more about the included updates, such as:

After upgrading my workstation to 11.2, I already have some workarounds for minor problems:

Tips & Tricks:


It seems the database did not run after upgrading from 11.1 to 11.2.

To fix it I did a: sudo zypper rm mysql; sudo zypper in mysql

Note: This was reported as bug #539148, and is caused by the ‚–skip-federated‘ option in /etc/my.cnf

Kde4 konsole:

My „Home“ and „End“ keys did not work. Go to Settings -> Manage profiles -> edit profile -> Set to „Default (XFree4)“


Privoxy fails to start, because it is missing a config file. Fix:

sudo ln -s default.action /etc/privoxy/standard.action

The config file /etc/X11/xorg.conf is not needed anymore. I just moved it away.

Ideapad S12:

The Atom processor of the S12 seems to have a problem with the 11.2 kernel: It sleeps even if it should work 😉

Solution: adding processor.max_cstate=1 to the kernel line of /boot/grub/menu.lst
