I recently migrated my workstation from SLED15 SP1 to SLED15 SP2 and encountered a few issues.
- The machine was very slow to boot and was running start jobs for the connected SATA disks. A look at boot.log revealed errors with regard to encrypted disks but done of my installed disks in fstab are encrypted. There was a /etc/crypttab file which had details of removable encrypted disks that have been connected in the past. Removal of this file speded up the booting enormously.
- The machine booted with no GUI. I had to start YAST and re-install all of the NVIDIA drivers and then the machine started correctly with the GUI intact.
- It is irritating that the right click menu on the Desktop has the command ‘Open in Terminal’ but this does open the home directory anymore, instead it opens ~/Desktop. This is even though I select the SLE Classic Gnome theme.
My machine is no working but I have another 30 workstations to deal with and I am hesitant to start the process whilst these time consuming issues remain. Any advice would be gratefully received.
