On 2 laptops, both with Atheros Wifi cards, I’m experiencing a serious drop in network performance with the Tumbleweed packages installed (max 10 MBit/sec). Probably the 2.6.38 kernel, which holds the driver. Switched back to 11.4’s packages and network performance is OK again (max 40 MBit/sec). All this on the same Netgear router.

HA! i just figured out why the devs launched Tumbleweed (with such a
cool name)–it’s just to get more people to TEST more software more
often, and faster…
maybe with Tumbleweed and a string of Ms and RCs, 12.1 will be ready for
use when released (like 9.3 was)…

Different people use different tools to get things done - most developers
seem to be more efficient with mailing lists. Don’t knock them for their
choice of tool, respect that they know how they work most efficiently and
have adopted tools that let them do that.

We all do from time to time - part of the human condition.

I tend to subscribe to mailing lists through gmane.org - since I use
NNTP, I can access the mailing lists as newsgroups, which I find is more
to my liking. They do also have a web interface, though I don’t know how
much you can do through it. You might check it out.
