GNOME 3 Live image, release 0.1.1

As always, another week, another release, aka 0.1.1
Burano Cats
This week release is a polish release :

  • very few package changes
  • many services are disabled when booting live CD, improving its loading speed
  • password is no longer asked at all in live CD for root or standard (tux) user
  • when installing the image on a system (add liveinstall parameter on bootloader), some services are enabled back (apparmor, preload, firewall), thanks to Chris comments
Another service announcement :
my GNOME3 openSUSE 11.3 repository will soon be removed ; packages will be only available for openSUSE 11.4 (same OBS project). Therefore, I strongly suggest to upgrading your system to openSUSE 11.4.

You know the url to fetch the latest release :

Enjoy !


  1. I think Gnome shell on a touch screen is fantastic.
    But there are problems.

    I tested it on my netbook asus Eee-pc T101MT touch screen.
    In the first start of Evolution are unable to press the buttons 'Next' and 'undo' because the wizard is larger than the screen resolution.
    Same problem in the 'universal access settings'.

    In addition, the touch, I have trouble using your finger to open the notification area at the bottom right. Does not go well at all.

    There is no quick way to turn the screen from horizontal to vertical.

  2. @guiseppeS could you please fill bug reports against Evolution, GNOME-Shell and gnome-control-center (for the rotation handling) at ? Thanks.

  3. A bit slow on my EEE PC "surf" (701), but at least gnome-shell does not fail like in VirtualBox (likely missing host support)

  4. @GiuseppeS
    this bug in Evolution has been reported LIGHT YEARS ago
    there are dozens of duplicates and subscribers.
    bugs like asking for a scrollbar (netbook friendly)
    have been totally ignored.
    anyway they will push a revamped version merging the Express interface, but do not expect anything in the next 6 months.
    try Thunderbird or Postler
