    Using it now. The only bug I really ran into is some xrandr weirdness and do not run xrestop as it will kill your xsession. Granted that might only be on intel drivers. I am also using the new intel SNA acceleration and it works fine.
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep Mesa
    client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset 
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.0
    Edit: Remember to switch to the repository in yast software management (or do zypper dup --from "repo name") if you decide to use it. Also, do not commit to the upgrade if it wants to remove either fbdev or vesa drivers. A newport driver (or something like that) is removed with the upgrade, and that is fine.

    How do I add the Intel SNA to my OpenSuSE 64 bit Tumbleweed?

    I checked the X11 repository for Mesa 9 and there is not a Tumbleweed section. Would it be safe for me to use the OpenSuSE 12.2 repository to add Mesa 9?

    I doubt that it would be safe. Also you already have opengl 3.0 support (I am jealous) so not much reason to upgrade to new mesa.

    How do I add the Intel SNA to my OpenSuSE 64 bit Tumbleweed?
    First check if not already running SNA:
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep SNA
    If not, in root terminal:
    Code:
    nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
    Add the below to the file and press ctrl+x to save.
    Code:
    Section "Device"
       Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
       Driver      "intel"
       Option      "AccelMethod"  "sna"
    EndSection
    Reboot to make changes take effect. A log out and log in might be sufficient but I have not tested that.

    Just a restart of the X-server will be sufficient: CTRL-ALT-Backspace (twice)
