Upgrade to openSUSE 10.2
The openSUSE 10.2 repositories appeared on the mirrors a few days ago, time to upgrade.
The upgrade from 10.1 to openSUSE 10.2 went pretty smooth for me, if only the mirror had not failed in the middle of the 2.5GB download. YaST was left in an inconsistent state as some of it's dependencies had been upgraded already. In order to get back a working YaST and thus complete the upgrade, I downloaded all of the yast*-packages (including dependencies) from another mirror, upgraded YaST and launched it again. I then launched the system upgrade again and installed the rest of the packages without further issues.
I am getting logged in automatically into KDE on boot, which is not what I want at all. Checking with YaST reveals, that it is actually turned off, just the way it should be and always has. To disable this ugly 'feature', edit /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager and remove the auto-login account in DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN.Another problem was YaST's printer database. While configuring the printer, YaST would always hang at 4% of 'building the printer database'. After a few cycles with identical outcomes I decided to remove the database and see if YaST would recreate it on its own. Once the printer database was removed, all went through.
sudo rm /var/lib/YaST2/ppd_db.ycp
sudo /etc/init.d/hplip restart sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart
