Well, I put OpenSUSE 11 on my laptop.
The installer looked nice, but X restarts an annoying amount of times during installation and gets replaced with a CLI login or a CLI message saying "DONT PANIC!"
Another thing is I thought it was stuck on 48%, but it turns out the status bar doesn't update unless I move the mouse.
I specifically unchecked the box that said "auto login", but I've not once been asked to log in.
The network manager applet told me there were no wifi networks in range. I tried editing the card in YaST but it failed at the step where it connects to the internet
