Hi All. I am new to Opensuse from Ubuntu. I am used to the gnome interface, however, I am unsure if gnome3 is stable enough yet to use on opensuse. There has been a lot of questions around this but they all seem to be older posts which makes me think that its ok now but someone clarify.
If you are familiar with Gnome, stick with it. openSUSE 12.1 is good and stable for both desktop environments. While KDE is the default choice in openSUSE now, we have long had (and still have!) a policy of supporting both desktop environments equally.
On the other hand… if you’re thinking of switching to KDE anyway, switching to openSUSE could provide a good “excuse”.

Did it work before, or is this a fresh install? if it is a fresh install,
it is the classical video problem.
