    Please note that on openSuSe 12.2 I didn't have any issues neither with this card not kernel hot-plugging facilities. If you need more technical details please give me a shout.

    I see a suggestion to try the kernel load option "pcie_aspm=off" at the URL here: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/1957681/

    I have a nice bash script to work with Grub2 called grub2cmd you can find here: GNU Grub2 Command Listing Helper with --help & Input - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    You could basically try the kernel load command one time, using the Grub 2 menu edit command as shown here: How to Start openSUSE 12.3 with Grub 2 into Run Level 3 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums , but use pcie_aspm=off instead of a 3 or nomodeset, just to see if it helps.

    If it does help, you can edit the file /etc/default/grub as root and edit the line that starts with: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=" , and add in your command "pcie_aspm=off" on that line inside the exiting quotes, perhaps as the end. Then you must update the grub2 menu, something my bash script grub2cmd does for you or you can open up terminal and execute the command:

    Code:
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    You could also give kernel 3.8 or even kernel 3.9 a try. Have a look at my blog on the subject of installing new kernel versions you can find here: openSUSE and Installing New Linux Kernel Versions - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

    Thank You,
