Thanks for posting S.Kulow’s post from the opensuse-devel list.
This actually works better for me. I’m headed off on vacation tomorrow (5-Nov) and won’t be back in Europe until 15-Nov. Thus I won’t be able to test milestone-3 until that later date at the very soonest.
Having run up against the wall with 11.4 MS2 vis-a-vis the Intel GMA HD problem, a wait of one week or more is made tolerable due to the prospect of Kernel 2.6.37. I have run kernels up to and including 2.6.36-90.1 without success with the Intel GA. Perhaps the delay will also help the intermittent touchpad-related problems experienced.
Downloaded, burned and installed. Install non-eventful, with the liveCD and its desktop installer functioning correctly (as with prior 11.4’s) with the Intel GMA HD. Prior touchpad/keyboard lags seem improved, although still present.
Installed kernel is 2.6.36-18.
On the down side, the actual installed 11.4 MS3 does NOT support the Intel GMA HD graphics, requiring boot with nomodeset. As in prior threads and posts, it seems that the liveCD has the correct drivers for the device, yet installs (apologies to John Cleese) “something completely different”.
As with prior posts, boot to runlevel 3 fails with the same “black screen” problem experienced with the normal boot.
On an unrelated note, the -0845 build contains (on the liveCD) and installs LibreOffice. Did I miss the memo on this choice ?
I performed the above steps on my Gateway NV79 i5-430 (an Arrandale). As of this posting, I am still waiting for the graphics to comeup, about 3 minutes. (With apologies to Commander Scott, “at Warp 10 we are going nowhere mighty fast”.)
