I’ve been playing around with 12.3 for a couple of months now, and thought I was comfortable enough with Linux and OpenSUSE to attempt an upgrade once 13.1 came out. Upgrading my laptop went smoothly, except for a nonfunctional touchpad (posted about previously, I’m using the same fix now when I actually need it) which I didn’t notice at first since I use an external mouse at home.
However the upgrade on my desktop has not gone so smooth. I did a new install of 13.1 AMD64 over the 12.3 install, and now when I try to start 13.1, it will get stuck at a black screen with a flashing white dash in the top left corner. The dual-boot with Windows 7 still works, and Windows loads normally.
Intel Core I5-3570K (was overclocked to 4.2 GHz, reset to stock settings for the upgrade)
16 GB RAM
2x AMD Radeon HD 7770 Crossfired
500 GB hard drive (Windows 7 installed), 2 1 TB hard drives (data), 80 GB laptop drive (just an extra SATA drive I had laying around I’m using for OpenSUSE)
Connected to Internet using a TP-Link WDN4800 (Atheros-based) wireless card.
