Obviously "above", but which "above", 8? 7? That response was to comment 9's
"Since post-comment 7 zypper dup on both i845G hosts, KDE does run, but with
everything unusably small due to lack of the required content from those
files", which I fully expected when written to get no response to. Because I
did get an apparent response, I tried to figure out how anything you wrote
previously was even related, much less answered, but failed to do so.

Again your response as directly relates to my question is ambiguous. I still
can't ascertain from your responses whether I am expected to be using
xorg.conf or xorg.conf.d/ to globally force text and icons on a GUI desktop
to a size legible for those with 25th or lower percentile vision; those who
find it difficult to use X configuration tools to do the same on account of
the chicken and egg nature of the situation caused in part by escalating
physical display pixel density, X settings fonts in fact 7pt or less faced by
those who require 10pt or more just to discern, much less be comfortable using.
Not so many releases back, openSUSE had been using (10pt in KDE; elsewhere?)
system and menu fonts, larger than most other distros (*buntu, Fedora,
Mandriva: 9pt). Then openSUSE dropped them down to match the competition,
removing yet another superior openSUSE feature. Devs with teenage eyesight
(apparently most software and web site devs) don't get that people with
poorer vision find it hard to make things bigger, especially since the death
of SaX2 and new, resolution-flexible CRTs, in contrast to the ease with which
those with good vision can make them smaller.
As to "prehistoric":
I certainly do not represent the majority of developers (or maybe all?), who
apparently upgrade their hardware every generation or two, or more often, as
many must to support new hardware as it becomes available.
I represent those whose upgrade cycle is from 10, 12 or 15 year old systems
to functional 6, 8 or 10 year old systems originally acquired during a period
when vendors no longer shipped Windows media with each PC, leaving acquirers
of used PCs or their original owners unable to legally reinstall the OEM OS
on a new HD; hardware long out of use by most if not all devs, but legitimate
for use of a FOSS OS intended in part to expand access to the internet to the
Contrary to the opinions of many devs and users jaded by the speed and RAM
supply of newer hardware, those who know no better can nevertheless still
find KDE @600 MHZ with 384M of RAM usable.
