my current machine is a HP lapton nx6325 and it’s specs are:
AMD Turion2 x64 CPU (dual core)
3GB of RAM DDR2
****** ATI Express 200M graphic card
Broadcomm Wireless network card
and other(regular hdd, .etc)
I’m using OpenSUSE 11.3 at the moment with the kernel that it comes with (2.6.something)…
and I was wondering if it’s worth upgrading to 11.4 or even 12.1
are there any big advantages?
will it be ok?
will I have hardware issues?

The only thing you will need to do in 12.1 is to make certain the firmware is
That step is still necessary as Broadcom continues to refuse anyone yo
redistribute their firmware. The above script gets around this by downloading
one of the binary drivers that must be redistributable and then extracting the
firmware from it.
indeed the X200M isn’t supported by the proprietary driver, and I’m already using the radeon driver that 11.3 comes with…so that’s not biggie
today I’ll test it with the LiveCD and see what happens…
btw… as part of my job I’m working remotely on a VM that has a RedHat Linux 6 (or so) and I’m curious if I pull the project on my personal machine…will it work??
the project is a big website developed with perl and mojolicious framework…apart from the facts that I have to install every module and dependencies that the application uses…will OpenSUSE enviroment be compatible with RedHat??
or should I look at Fedora?
I suppose it will depend on how you access the VM remotely. If you’re using full virtualization I don’t think it matters, but I’m not sure. Try posting in the virtualization forum, I think you’ll get better feedback there.
