This is a known bug and is mentioned hundreds of time already on the Factory
Mailinglist, where all comments about 11.0 at the moment belong. Or did I miss that 11.0 is already releasesd?
I don't believe this answer......

If it is a known bug and has been mentioned "hundreds of time already on the Factory Mailinglist" then why, in the name of common sense and the Einstein factor, is the kernel sitting in the factory repository and is allowed to be selected by zypper - and smart for that matter - as an upgrade to the original when the darn thing is a piece of useless rubbish?! The kernel is dated 23 May and today is 28 May -- and it's still sitting there (as of a 30 seconds ago).

As you put it nicely in your signature:

Well: in case you did not realize: we're talking about Factory. The solution is
as simple as stated on the Factory list for many times already: add acpi=off as
a boot parameter.

Tried that and other suggestions - as I already mentioned in the this forum - with no effect and had to re-intall 11B3 now at least 3 times in trying out the suggested solutions.

Now, since I know that Fred reads this forum why did he have to ask the question about the kernel even though it's been mentioned here 'hundreds of time already"? The answer, of course, is that not everybody religiously reads each and every message not every thread - and especially if the Subject of a thread is not related to the real subject of the thread - as for instance, as seen many times,"Need Help" which conveys absolutely nothing to the reader.

There will most likely come an updated kernel rpm soon.\

Ah, now that would be nice.

Can I assume that this will occur tomorrow (29 May, European time) when the RC1 is released?
