I think the problem in getting things fixed is also that there is not enough feedback geven by (test)users for the devs to get the issues sorted or pinpointed.
People either fall back to the older kernel or stick with openSUSE 10.3.
My first tests with openSUSE 11.1 look promising but as seen earlier a problem with the bnx2 chipset still exists. My two test systems work fine however.
Please try to test again with openSUSE 11.1 and give the devs as much info as possible using bugzilla and reporting the bugs you find (probably driver related). It will benefit us all!
