    Do you know if there are modern opensuses with older Xorg ? i never did like fglrx, they are trash , ironically the xorg opensource amd drivers always have much better perfomance than fglrx atleast for my amd laptop.
    the problem I'm pretty sure its my gpu with opensuse , first i thought it had to do with UEFI ,but it works on my older corei3 laptop where i have it installed,at first all i knew was Leap and Tumbleweed, i never knew gecko linux existed until now, i love how its pre-configured and i can test the os without having to download a huge unnecessary 3 to 4.7gb file and installing it ,its very convenient and i get exactly what i want.

    Hi
    Can you provide details on you laptop hardware, GPU, CPU Manufacturer etc?
    Code:
    lscpu
    /sbin/lspci -nnk |grep -A3 "VGA\|3D"
    You can always run a Live version of Tumbleweed for testing... Else roll your own on SUSE Studio https://susestudio.com

    and for some reason the other codes wont work yet
    becuase i might have dependency issues
    Code:
    gingle@gingle-ThinkPad-E425 ~ $ |grep -A3 "VGA\|3D"bash: syntax error near unexpected token `|'
    gingle@gingle-ThinkPad-E425 ~ $ /sbin/lspci -nnk 
    bash: /sbin/lspci: No such file or directory

    my main laptop is a lenovo thinkpad edge e425 http://mobilespecs.net/laptop/Lenovo...Edge_E425.html
    its my most powerful laptop becuase of its seperate graphics card and i was hoping to put suse on it and use it as my main for krita
    i can use centos6, and all of the 'buntus, but i want to use opensuse because it has a green lizard icon , and it just has a better linux experience imo.
    do you reckon that the opensuse 13.1 evergreen would be the way to go for my specific laptop ? is it impossible to run newer opensuse on my laptop ?
