Thread: Suse 11.4

    Default Suse 11.4

    I have tried loading 11.4 from the DVD from Linux Magazine. Everything goes swimmingly until I get to using it when the screen shows black rectangles, is "twitchy" and nothing works properly. I currently run 11.3 which works fine. Any thoughts?

    OpenSUSE 11.4 seems to boot up with Desktop Effects turned on by default, which produces a lot of artifacts if the video is not supported (such as in the case of my Intell 855 video).

    If you manage, even using a Live CD, to turn off Destkop Effects and see if that clears it up then there's your answer and at least it makes the system more usable.
