SLED 10 SP1 Review!

11 04 2007

Hello, All

Sorry about the late posting of SP1 for SLED. After along Two weeks waiting I finally downloaded the ISO from Novell’s Beta Website for SLED SP1, and let me tell you it was not easy after two tries I got the download started using the third mirror on there site. Once I got home from the store I realized that I brought DVD+R instead of DVD-R which is what myDVD Burner accepts .

Well, Lets begin with the review:

Installation: The install procedure was just like a normal SLED installation, which of course was a breeze. Since I had SLED already installed I choose update which was done in about 25mins.

Rating: 10

Desktop: The Desktop came up just as it always does with my settings intact and Icons where they should be. I started to poke around and found that they changed the Gnome Menu. (Screen shot coming soon).

The first thing that I noticed was the Gnome Start menu has been improved on by adding two new tabs to the bar.

More Coming soon as I am testing SP1…

Ok, Sorry it’s been a while…, I have so far been messing around with XGL and the new Calendar feature.

I was excited to try SLED sp1 just to see how ‘easy’ it really was. After installing the initial reboot gave me a nice grub loader screen that had a list of my operating systems (SLED, Gentoo, Windows, and SLED failsafe). I let it autoboot in to SLED because it was not finished configuring my installation. The boot up screen started, and about 30 seconds later the machine froze. I rebooted and tried “SLED failsafe” which gave me a more verbose lock up at “agpgart: Detected an Intel 965G Chipset.” which leads me to believe the kernel that comes with the standard SLED install has trouble with my 8800GTS.

This operating system really should be using a newer version of the kernel, it is reporting to use “2.6.16.46-0.12-smp” and the current is at 2.6.24 😦

SLED is a crock.

Boots from the CD fine, then 10 mins later decides is can’t find files.

Lets you choose to install from some other location (eg: a hard disk), but refuses to recognize the disk until you’ve put in your network(!) settings (which it refuses to do, until you load your netowrk drivers, which it refuses to load anyhow)

If you ever do get it to install, it usually won’t boot anyhow (I’ve tried 3 times now – fails every time, and I’m using the worlds most common server – an HP Proliant).

If they can’t sort out the simplest of problems, I can’t even imagine how many other bit of the “inside” of their product are in a similar state of disarray.

SLED is a timebomb – avoid now or suffer later.
