Upgraded my workstation @work to 10.2 today and noticed something really, really annoying. We use some OES boxes as file servers in our LAN (yeah, don't ask me ;)) and the Novell Client for Linux worked fine on 10.0 and 10.1. It did stop working on 10.2 though, because of two issues:
binutilsNovell doesn't provide packages for openSUSE 10.2 (*doh*). I tried to use the packages for SLE10 (novell-client-1.2-SLE10.tar.gz) but couldn't install them because they are linked against the binutils of SLE10/SUSE10.1 -- namely, libbfd-188.8.131.52.5.so). So I decided to do a backport/compatibility package for openSUSE 10.2 that includes libbfd-184.108.40.206.5.so. After all, the SONAME contains the complete version up to the last dot and hence, it can be installed side-by-side with the binutils package of 10.2 without causing any issues. I hacked the spec file of SUSE 10.0's binutils and just kept libbfd-220.127.116.11.5.so and libopcodes-18.104.22.168.5.so in the package. RPMs for 32bit and x86_64 are available in my repository (or will be in a few hours, after the next sync).
novfs kernel moduleThe novfs kernel module (provided on 10.2 through the package novfs-kmp-default) doesn't work. It hasn't been ported to 2.6.18 and still uses the deprecated tasklist_lock. I managed to hack a patch against novfs-2.0.0-3.src.rpm and it seems to work fine -- at least for me.
Updateadded 2006-12-26 20:15: Currently waiting for a fix (and possibly an Online Update). In the mean time, you can upgrade to the novfs-kmp package that is available in my repository. The following command should do the trick:
rpm --freshen -vh ftp://ftp.skynet.be/pub/suser-guru/rpm/packages/System/novfs/*.rpm
