Please try the 2.6.36 kotd
http://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/kernel/kotd/master

-or add the kernel-head repo:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_11.3/Kernel:HEAD.repo

Thankyou for the suggestion. Unfortunately I'm not able at this time to try the
patch. This laptop currently has openSUSE-11.1 (with KDE-4.4.4) with the 2.6.27
kernel which works well, and this laptop running openSUSE is used extensively
by my wife who for once in her life is happy with openSUSE. The hard drive is
too small for a dual boot between different openSUSE versions, and I can not
remove openSUSE-11.1 without risking the wrath of my wife.

Unfortunately I can only test liveCDs with the kernels noted, and creating a
liveCD with such a kernel is beyond my expertise. I note this bug is still
being worked actively upstream on this thread
http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27187 . The current most promising
patch is discussed in comment#233 with reasons why it has not (yet) been
submitted to Linux GIT tree.

I will continue to track this, and if there is any liveCD with the noted
kernels created, I will test on any such liveCDs.
