    you are you kidding, right? did you forget to add a ;-) or what?

    you do know that there are 'bugs' in all software, right?

    even bugs in Toyota products...and as far as i can tell in everything
    made by men..

    like did you hear about the 17 year old bug in the most used software
    on the planet, the bug that allowed the Chinese hackers to crack Google?

    read about that: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8499859.stm

    btw, i think the answers to your Qs are: openSUSE 1.2 was released on
    Nov 12th of last year, and yes it still has some bugs, and probably
    will for a long time to come....however, its code the code base 2027
    will probably not contain a bug which is in there today....why?
    because of the kind of testing this thread is asking folks to
    participate in..

    are you participating, or just commenting?

    a quick review of your posts indicate to me you are obviously both
    anti-openSUSE and pro-Redmond...which lead me to ask: why do you hang
    out here?

    if openSUSE doesn't suit you then i'd highly recommend you find that
    system which does....then go there and improve it rather than spend
    your time here trying to tear down what suits me, and thousands of
    others..

    in case others want to review your past post and decide for
    themselves: http://forums.opensuse.org/search.php?searchid=1525255

    Did you need to reinstall the driver with the new kernel?

    This was not a kernel update but a new install after a failure with the 2.6.33.rc6 kernel wich broke the symbolic links to the kernel source


    So via update 11.2 the kernel was installed totally new

    and then the nvidia driver has to be installed.

    Yes Mr. Paladium, it is "love it or leave it?, eh?"
    I have been a licensed owner of Suse every year since 1999, owning various Intel & PPC boxed sets and I currently use 11.2 on 2 laptops I own, so take your comments elsewhere.

    kernel 2.6.31.12-0.1-desktop installed from 11.2 x64 DVD

    and

    NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.03-pkg2.run

    installed using sh NVIDIA-Linux .........pkg2.run

    Fixed problems with slow game play (eg SuperTuxKart), stuttering MKV video playback and MythTV Live TV that I was having using the default drivers.

    Exclamation Re: Call for NVIDIA testers of 11.2 kernel update

    OK. I'm far from a noob when it comes to Linux as I've been using various flavors for many years. However, this is my first time using Suse.

    I'm not afraid of a man page, and even google things myself
    on occasion.

    If you're going to make a call to do this. Maybe include a simple
    set of instructions.

    I found this. Does it apply to 11.2 as well?

    Is it as easy as using the package manager and I am being too timid?

    BTW.. I am using:
    PCChips AG13+
    1GB DDR2 800
    Athlon 64 3800+
    MSI nx8400GS 512 MB
    80 WD sataHDD
    Suse 11.2 Desktop 2.6.31.12-0.1-desktop


    Did the "automatic" updates already.

    Leave it to me to overcomplicate it.

    All I wanted was HW acceleration to work.
    Should went HERE in the first place.
