We've prepared a few sample screenshots to make sure nobody downloads the Beta just for the sake of "knowing what it looks like".. leave the bandwith to REAL men (and women).
Known issues with Beta 1:
The developers caught up on their sleep last weekend, therefore the following problems weren't corrected before the Beta was released into the wild:
* CDROM access as root does not work properly with supermount
Reason: devfsd does not create the /dev/hdX link as user pam access to /dev/ide/*/*/*/*/cd to set user ownership makes devfsd create the link.
* Java support is broken.
Reason: The currently available Java is not compiled with GCC 3.1 and therefore does not work with our packages.
* DRI does not work properly with i810 and X doesn't respawn correctly. To fix this, do not activate 3D acceleration with i810 based systems.
Reason: The kernel module for i810 suffers some problems.
* CD switching during the installation causes some problems. When a new CD is requested, clicking the "cancel" button may lead the installation process into an infinite loop.
