In short:
Today openSUSE's X server crashes if the video card gets upgraded.
After reboot X doesn't start = reformat and reinstall <- That's what
all new users will do.

Do we want this reaction? Obviously not.

BulletProof is a technology that can detect changed video card, and
use VESA driver instead automatically, without the need for using
command-line.

I would like to see this technology adapted for openSUSE.

What do you think of it ?

Anyone who is changing his hardware this way and is not aware that he has
to do some configuration steps (very simple here: just call sax2) is a
fool.
And don't forget: serving fools just creates a new fool - you.
