openSUSE 11.2

I have updated now 2 of my systems to openSuSE 11.2, one using a fresh
install and the other doing a system upgrade (11.1->11.2). I found only 2
problems with this:
a) During installation of 11.2 on a second disk I wanted GRUB to be
installed in the MBR of this second disk. I got an error that installing
GRUB on disk "/dev/sdb97543" failed (or a similiar silly number). GRUB was
installed fine, I manually had to correct the entry in GRUB's menu.lst.
b) After I upgraded an existing 11.1, the upgrade did not update the
GRUB "default" setting: It still wanted to boot the old kernel which
failed to find mydisk and dropped me into the restricted console. Again
after manually correcting this problem in menu.lst, it worked fine.

As for the fonts: After downloading the MS TTF and another free TTF font
package, the fonts are fine, clear and nice to look at. So IMO 11.2 is a
worthwile upgrade, especially if you run 11.0.
