Oh, yes. There have always been problems.

It has worked here with every YOU update I did with SuSE 9.1 (not with
8.2). The kernel rpm contains the kernel modules, and update after update,
they are ok and run first boot, without my intervention. This doesn't
happen if you install the latest driver, SuSE packs 1.0-5336 for 9.1.

Except this last one, it is broken.
