I just wanted to give openSUSE another try, but it failed.
Networking is not available after fresh installation of openSUSE 13.1 (GNOME).
"The system network services are not compatible with this version." it says at opening 'Network Settings'.
The hardware is recognised tho.

PS
With this post I just wanted to help the openSUSE community to prevent such embarrassing bugs in the future.
If you need more information or log entries, I will provide it to you.
If you think, I should report this issue as a bug-report, please tell me, I will do so.

BUT PLEASE. Do not advise me with command-line tricks... it's not the point, because networking should work out of the box!
