As I said before, I was trying openSUSE 12.1 on my laptop. I was liking it, but there was a problem. About the time I noticed it, Linus Torvalds posted about the same thing: root password required to add a wireless network and change the timezone. Not a “hey, let’s run sudo here real quick; type in your password to confirm,” but a “I NEED ROOT!!!”
There were some other things, too:
- Didn’t care much for zypper. It’s alright, but kinda meh.
- I can’t find anything. I’m used to Debian file locations, but I can go look in the Red Hat spots, too. openSUSE doesn’t conform to either. And really? /srv? It makes sense for server software, I guess, but is just an odd choice.
