When trying to install openSUSE 13.1 on my new Lenovo Laptop the menu loads only in a small top left part of the screen and then I get a blank screen.
Intel® Core™ i3-3110M 2.4 GHz
Graphics: Intel® HD Graphics 4000
It seems to be a problem with FrameBuffer. Is there any way to disable it or change my video mode? I have searched the Forums and tried to add the nomodeset option but it doesn’t seem to work when booting on EFI.
Edit: My mistake. Adding nomodeset after loader/linux worked and booted into the installation. Is there any way for me to help to fix this bug, like filling a report or helping one that already exists by inputing my hwinfo?

Thanks. I’ve managed to install openSUSE successfully but when I sleep/hibernate my Laptop it comes back with a blank/black screen. Nothing works like changing to Ctrl + Alt + Fx, though it’s easy to notice that my System didn’t freeze or anything.
It’s a video issue maybe related with the FrameBuffer one.
I’ve searched the Forums and found similar issues but with nVidia Graphics Cards. Does anyone have any hints for someone who has an Intel HD Graphics one? It would really be nice to sleep/hibernate/wake/etc. as it saves some power for my Laptop.
Funny that both issues (Blank Screen on Framebuffer and on returning from Sleep) were indeed fixed when I’ve updated my System. But it seems to have not been the kernel update itself. I have booted to the older original kernel (3.11.6-4) just out of curiosity and they were fixed too. Maybe some video drivers that may be external to the kernel and its modules were upgraded.
As for now I’ve mainly had experience with nVidia only (nouveau/proprietary) I don’t know how Linux/openSUSE handles Intel video drivers and how it was fixed even booting to the older kernel.
