The only 'surprises' I've found with
later kernels is they no longer work with
my laptop video card, e.g. my trusty
[AMD/ATI] RS690M [Radeon Xpress 1200/1250/1270]
the screen blinks on and off with anything after 3.15
Quick and easy test on 42.1, 42.2 or TW, if you first find ample RADEON(0)
lines in Xorg.0.log:
# zypper rm xf86-video-ati
then restart Xorg. That might/(should?) switch to the modesetting driver
built into Xorg since server 1.17.x, which could possibly work better than
radeon ever did. I don't remember ATM whether I tried this with ATI older
than 5450HD, with which modesetting works nicely here.
If you're still on 13.1 or 13.2, updating Xorg to repositories/X11:/XOrg
should put you in the same place.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
