I used the Factory (instead of 12.1) repos for "...KDE:/KDE3:/ ..." and "... Hal-enabled ..." instead, of course. All else the same, including essential package selection. Selected/used (legacy) Grub instead of Grub2, to avoid a known problem with M3.
Everything seems to work normally. DVDs and USB Thumb flashes are recognized when inserted, Firefox browser and K3b work, as does (g)Mplayer for MP3's and .MOVs, and I was even able to get Catalyst 12.3 working, albeit with a couple of problems; these should go away as soon as Catalyst install routine catches up with kernel 3.3x.
KDE:KDE3 repository has many front-ends for MPlayer: smplayer, kplayer and kmplayer. Thre is no need to use the Gnome front-end.
