I was used the OpenSuse at the past until the v.12.1, I had no major issues, but at one time I changed the m/board
(ASRock H67m-itx, i5-2500) of my system and I had issues with suspend/resume due to a buggy BIOS.
Around a couple of weeks ago the ASRock issued a new BIOS - mainly to support Ivy Bridge.
In fact this version of BIOS fixed a lot of issues that I had with some distros (inc. OpenSuse).
So, I tested the 12.2 milestone 3 on a spare HDD and I noticed that the suspend/resume issues are gone, but
there were some gfx issues mainly on drop down menus of the menus of the Applicaton Launcher (I am using the KDE desktop) : Before opening a menu I see a black shape of that menu, then I see the menu as it , the whole process is very quick, but its noticeable.
To say the truth, I don’t have this issue with Kubuntu/Fedora/Salix so its not a problem of the KDE.
I also searched the net but found no bug report, so I wonder if it’s a problem with the Intel driver of OpenSuse…
You might want to compare xorg, mesa, and intel driver versions compared to the distros that work for you. That way you can see if one or the other is newer and it might be a regression in a newer version. Then you can report the bug to opensuse or upstream to xorg devs.
This move could take over 30 minutes. I ask that both our forum users and NNTP users do not post on this thread, until after the move is complete. I will post when the move is complete. I need to wait for this warning post to make it through the NNTP gateway, before I can start the move process.
for the kde desktop to really sing mesa needs to be installed and it is not by default. the drivers are contained in the kernel so as long as the kernels are the same the distro should make no difference
