I booted my Asus P6T Deluxe V2 (w/Wintel Core i7 920) to the 64-bit openSUSE-12.2 beta2 (build 0451) KDE liveCD for a basic hardware compatibility test with this beta2 version of openSUSE. Thus far it appears to work with my hardware.
I had internet access via our home LAN.
Graphics worked at the expected 1920x1200 resolution.
I plugged in a USB stick and it hot plugged auto-mounted and a could copy files to/from.
I installed rpm-build and then rebuilt the packman inxi from the rpm .src file and ran it to give the following on my functioning hardware:

I did not test any applications on this liveCD boot. This was only intended at this time to be a basic hardware compatibility check.
