Hello SuSE people,


Guess I haven't been paying attention. Has there been a kernel update for
11.3 since it came out? Right now I am running 2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop.

I am not happy about the performance opf 11.3 right now. I've read in
several threads that people have upgraded the kernel to 2.6.35 and have
had better results but Iam reluctant to go into HEAD and just download a
later version.

For me the desktop is unusable after updates, with the latest nvidia drivers
and with the default kernel. There is a kernel:stable repo for openSUSE
providing kernel 2.6.36.1. I have installed and compiled the sources from this
repo and now everything is fine.

I use latest KOTD kernel and latest Nvidia drivers like this:

after installation of new kernel, but before reboot, I run:

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.21 -K -k 2.6.37-rc5-16-default
(of course, put your version numbers, I just did copy/paste from todays history)

and get nvidia kernel module installed. After reboot, everything works like it should.
