Does anyone with a Samsung Series 9 (or other samsung laptop) know if
openSUSE is affected by the UEFI bricking issue (supposedly related to
samsung-laptop module)? Has anyone installed openSUSE on a Samsung
laptop with UEFI? Or did you disable it? How does this affect openSUSE?
Booting Linux using UEFI just once on various Samsung laptops is enough
to permanently stop them working. Several reports have been posted on
the Ubuntu bug tracker, but the problem is likely to also be present in
other Linux distributions, as it appears to be caused by a kernel
driver for Samsung laptops. Kernel developers are currently discussing a
change which would disable the driver when booting via UEFI.
