Dear Forum members,
I have been using successfully opensuse 13.1 ( professionally) and tried 13.2 about a year ago, abandoned and resume with 13.1.
I eventually tried this week to install ( bare metal) again opensuse 13.2 Gnome or leap 42.1 Gnome on my Clevo P17SM-A with NVIDIA GTX860M without success.
from dmesg >
0.000000] DMI: Notebook P17SM-A /P17SM-A , BIOS 4.6.5 07/28/2015
Installation is fine in both cases, but Kernel Panic occurs in a reproducible way : on restart or logout, more randomly with Gnome Term, raising lspci command ( sic !).
Needless to mention that Hardware Modprobe in Yast ends up with Kernel Panic as well.
And I get the following from the dmesg log (and also mixed up with my login prompt in the console at startup):
nouveau E PBUS][0000:01:00.0] MMIO read of 0x00000000 FAULT at 0x400700 IBUS ]
The consequence is after a couple of sudden panics :**

RPM Packages are the usual ones without any NVIDIA drivers.
HELP HELP is really welcome as I would like to move forward with next opensuse releases .
As I mentionned same nouveau stall symptoms occured with install of Leap Milestone 42.1.
Note: I couldn’t not even install succesfully NVIDIA drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-352.30) even after nvidia-installer blacklisting nouveau.[/size][/size][/size][/size][/size]
