Suse 11.4

I have tried loading 11.4 from the DVD from Linux Magazine. Everything goes swimmingly until I get to using it when the screen shows black rectangles, is “twitchy” and nothing works properly. I currently run 11.3 which works fine. Any thoughts?

i’m thinking it is a graphics problem and one (or both) of these will
probably fix you up!

OpenSUSE 11.4 seems to boot up with Desktop Effects turned on by default, which produces a lot of artifacts if the video is not supported (such as in the case of my Intell 855 video).

If you manage, even using a Live CD, to turn off Destkop Effects and see if that clears it up then there’s your answer and at least it makes the system more usable.

Thanks for the links! I’m going to poke around those later.
