Does anyone try 11.4 in a virtual environment? I might be interested in trying OpenSUSE 11.4 in Virtualbox. How much space would one need?
OpenSUSE liveCDs come with the virtualbox guest additions already installed, so you'll get 3D acceleration (if you enable it) and display resizing out of the box. In regards to space a typical instalation will require about 3GB. The default instalation is 2.8GB IIRC.
I had to give this one up.
I couldn't get it to boot up when installed on an external harddisk, even though I installed the bootloader to the harddisks root partition.
It would boot up grub, but grub was not able to find the root partition
Now that fglrx officially supports openSUSE 11.4 I finally took the plunge.
Overall impression: very sleek.
No more trailing with fglrx' 2D acceleration (I suppose it's thanks to the famous 200 lines patch?)
But: still haven't been able to make my microphone work. I've removed .asoundrc, .pulse/, and the kmix settings which had carried over from 11.3, installed pavucontrol, though there is just no input from the microphone.
