DON'T update the kernel in 11.0 as there's an excellent chance that when
Grub tries to startup the system, it won't boot!! This is repeatedly
what I get with 11.0 64-bit.



This is a known bug and is mentioned hundreds of time already on the
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).

Perplexed from OZ.

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

Wonderful. And, what do you do if you have a laptop?

Easy. Stop using beta versions.

11.0 is not a supported product yet.
You get to report problems and provide fixes and support, not complain about
them and demand fixes and support.

Thats why people keep saying "this is factory", and "... as mentioned already
on the factory mail list ...", etc.
Take the hint. If you're using Factory, discuss it and be kept up to date about
it on the Factory mail list (not here), and if it's too buggy for you to use,
then, don't use it. Use 10.3 or whatever is the latest released version at a
given time, then complain and demand fixes if _that_ doesn't work as
advertised. As for not reading every post, you never heard of google? Or the
search box on the web interface to the archives of all the mail lists?

Good grief....
