Great release Kris, since a few hours i testing this release and after
that i can say that this alpha is not usable to me, after install (no
language packs, the installation does not look good in my 1024x786
resolution) the x-server start great and i can change the driver to
ati or ati-3d-enable but this doesnt work i will change to vesa and
this works! Next setp KDM looks not so good (design) but i can log in!
Now the main problem, after loading kde i can see the desktop for a
moment and after hearing the start sound the screen gets black / white
colors and kde crashes completly - kdm reload! This problem appears
also with root!

Greets from germany,
Marcel Kaeming
