Hi All !

I believe everyonw has read that:
http://www.linuxtoday.com/infrastructure/2008091902235NWSW

In short:
Today openSUSE's X server crashes if the video card gets upgraded.
After reboot X doesn't start = reformat and reinstall <- That's what
all new users will do.

Do we want this reaction? Obviously not.

BulletProof is a technology that can detect changed video card, and
use VESA driver instead automatically, without the need for using
command-line.

I would like to see this technology adapted for openSUSE.

What do you think of it ?
