    Hi,

    Updating on 64bit PC went without a hitch. My experience on old 32bit is as follows.

    If anyone has googleearth running ok, i would appreciate some help.

    Blog (summary of events),
    1. installed new from DVD with reformatting of partitions
    2. PC would not boot up openSUSE 11.4 (i586)
    PC stopped with message ,
    “initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.37-1-1.2-desktop
    error 28 Selected item cannot fit into memory”
    3. booted into recovery mode via DVD
    mounted '/' partition
    no /etc/X11/xorg.conf found, only xorg.conf.install
    in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf, deleted '#' from line '#Driver "radeon"'
    4. PC rebooted ok to normal user gui KDE4.6.0 screen but PC restarts after 2 second
    5. selected 'safe mode' and PC booted ok into terminal mode
    6. rebooted and removed nomodeset from cmd line, ok into gui safe mode
    7. dual monitors setup via -System Settings --Display and Monitor
    8. after 2 or 3 reboots, changes made were recognised, normal user mode still unstable
    9. removed all pulseaudio packages not affecting dependencies to stop interference with plasmoids
    10. rebooted into safe mode, noticed no changes had been made to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-xxx files. Replaced these files with old openSUSE 11.3 (i586) files from backup
    11. rebooted to KDE4.6.0, much better but still unstable
    12. added repos and installed KDE4.6.1 and Linux 2.6.38-18-desktop i686 via yast
    13. rebooted to KDE4.6.1 ok
    -sound ok
    -kaffeine ok, DVD's and music files and CD's
    -libreoffice ok
    -digikam ok
    -firebox ok, beta version,
    -googleearth, installed ok but hangs during start, lsb 4.0-12.1installed, still playing with this

    No question, just a comment.

    They are here, as many work towards the goal of good solid programs for open source.

    Yes the upgrade went well. I have upgraded 3 machines, one being a IBM laptop R40.

    The only issue I have seen was on the postgresql upgrade, and that has been solved. Which of course is not an OpenSuse issue.
