Hi, why to wait?
I got mine with everything working.
There are some issues to know anyway. The 1005HA is not the same as 1000H. The key is to install the drivers for wired and wireless and replace networkmanager by wicd.
The general idea is that you have to add “Kernel-source”, and “make” (needed by the driver for wired networking). You can get this by downloading the KDE DVD ISO file in windows, copying it from SuSE and adding the ISO file as a repo source using Yast/Add-on. I am assuming you do not have a DVD/CD external device.
Getting Wire networking (ethernet JP45)
The network device is a Atheros AR8132 PCI-E.
Get the driver…
Go to Atheros’ website, and search for AR8132, and download the only file for Linux Family.

Unpack/extract the file in a folder, then with Konsole/terminal, as root:
go to /lib/modules/kernel…default/kernel/drivers/net/atl1e/ (while installing it appears the folder path on terminal)
and also as root:
connect to wire and test it with knetworkmanager.
This is an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
Get the community driver from the opensuse Built Service website.
Link to the Community Athero’s wireless driver compat-wireless-kmp-default
Still wireless not working? do not worry.
This is very common since Network Manager is used by default and has many problems.
I tried with NM and networkmanager-KDE or with networkmanager-KDE4 and neither were stable or even connected.
The solution is simple:
Replace NM with WICD. Again this you can download from the Build Service
Link to get the WICD packages
Accept the installation of the repositories.
Once it is installed, go again to Yast, Install Software, search and uninstall Networkmanager. It will uninstall the KDE clients as well. No problem. And on Yast/Network Devices/Network Settings/Global Options, select “traditional method with Ifup”.
It is possible that WICD will request for root password the first time.
If a D-BUS error shows up, it is due to updates that did not deleted the previous setting files. A solution is to uninstall WICD, restart, install WICD again, run it, give the root pass, check the settings, and restart again. After this, I do not get any password request when booting nor D-BUS errors.
Hope this helps.
