Thank you for your assistance jdmcdaniel3. I am good to go. This weekend I am going to take your advice and your script and utilize the latest kernel. So why have you not upgraded to kde 4.5? Being from Austin perhaps you enjoy the blues as much as I do. A personal favorite performed live in Austin is Live James Cotton from antones (spelling?)
Well first of all it is SUPER to hear you are good to go and problem solved. So I guess the kernel is what had got you. Indeed this proved to be a problem for several people with openSUSE. I have just bypassed the whole problem using sakc, but loading the most recent kernel that is NOT final release is not suggested. This only works well about half the time and you got to ask yourself, do you feel Lucky?, well do you pilgrim? lol! So, I suggest you go with 2.6.36 for now and try other versions later. Any time you load an external binary driver, such as for video, it must be reloaded when you install a new kernel, so keep that in mind.
As for KDE 4.5, I actually have it loaded on a copy of openSUSE 11.2 and it is working just fine and so I could upgrade, but really I see no advantage to it right now AND CPU speed control was removed from this version. So, for now I am playing with it, but I have not moved it to my main computer.
As for the music scene, (Antone’s is correct) I don’t go out all that much these days. My wife had a stoke several years ago and uses a wheel chair. We just don’t go out that much, though we are able to go out. This is the reason I spend so much time on the computer these days.
It is kind of odd because, my brother, who also lives in Austin, is way into the music here and goes to every event he can manage. He is also in a band called T****he Tiny Tin Hearts, which play really well and have played in many clubs here. So, I get filled in on the actions and get to hear a lot of recordings he has made. I ask that if you have a Windows computer, go to iTunes and search for their name. You will find their CD there and it is only $6.93 US. There are two songs on the record that are worth the whole cost—> Luke & Love & Jet Engines. I really can’t believe my brother is so good and in such a band.
