I would really love to continue using opensuse 11.1. However. There have been many problems I have ran into since my installation today.
One thing was that updating everything took over 6 hours. The update was in hopes to fix all the problems…
The flash player in Firefox refuses to work. The plugins show it as “yes”.
When I first installed, the fan speed wasnt overloading. After the upgrading it went sky high. And now I cannot right-click the desktop due to the loading cursor being on, i believe the desktop isnt responding.
Compiz Fusion refuses to turn on with my Radeon HD4650 graphics card.
Now before I continue. I would like to inform you that I used ubuntu previously and had NO issue with compiz, firefox, or fan speed at all. Reason why it was uninstalled was due to me wanting to try OpenSUSE. I find it much better, but my thoughts are changing…
Back to the problems.
I have updated everything that had updates in “install software”. I have installed lots of 3 flash players with all the same result… Blank. I have not tried uninstalling firefox, and I have the feeling that it will work if I try, so I will do that after I am done with this post.
This still wont fix the fan speed from being absolutely high, compiz fusion, desktop not responding (hence the cursor always on load), or even the background turning from the official opensuse background to some dark blue one.
My PC specs are:
ATI Radeon HD4650 (Graphics)
2.1ghz AMD Phenom X3 64-Bit
Also, this is dual-booted with vista. Not like that matters, considering it doesnt matter when ubuntu was installed and ubuntu remix dual-booted with XP on my netbook.
Please help me fix all of these. I dont want to end up leaving opensuse for good.
I forgot to mention I am using the Gnome desktop environment. Also, OpenSUSE is running VERY slow right now. Trying to abort a uninstallation using “install software” doesnt work, and trying to exit takes about 10 minutes till the box opens asking if i really want to quit.
