Hello,

(In reply to comment #22)
1. I have been using the same power-supply for a long time. There were no
problems with any of openSUSE's earlier releases (used 10.3,11.0,11.1 and now
11.2). Why with 11.2 should the problem crop up if it is related to the
power-supply?

I really don't know. The thing is that that part of kernel remained about the
same between 11.1 and 11.2 and more than half of this type of problems
eventually turned out to be power problem, so that is my first hunch but I of
course could be wrong.

2. I am presently using libata.force=noncq until I get another power-supply. I
have not had the problem since using this parameter. Am I right in
interpreting
your above comment to mean that there might be some disadvantages of using
this
option, and that I am better off not using it even temporarily?

You won't be using NCQ but for desktop usage the difference isn't noticeable.
You're not noticing any difference, right?

Thanks.
