It's installable on x86_64 ?

No idea, you can test the NET isos

I will not download an image if I don't know it "should" work, it is a
waste of time I don't have (plus download time). Netinstall? I don't have
the bandwidth.

I'm just testing the current  x86-64 DVD - looks fine so far,
(openSUSE-DVD-x86_64-Build0576-Media.iso) in kvm,

Thanks. Then I'll try it.

No, I will not :-(

I have an Intel graphic chipset in the laptop I use for testing, a GM45. It
has been reported that
support for Intel graphic chipsets is totally broken. Before knowing this I
found that s2ram crashes
the machine, and s2disk refuses to run. I have read the reports I could find,
and it appears that
there is no hope at all of solving the Intel graphic chipset problems any
time soon... thus count me
out.

This is very unfortunate :-((

Carlos,

I don't know if it will help, but when I filed a bug against the Intel
KMS implementation in 2.6.34-rc*

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=594542

I was advised to disable the new Intel KMS driver:

"Maybe you should switch back to UMS to get a stable system again, i.e. boot
with i915.modeset=0."

So, AIUI the new Intel KMS driver is very badly behaving, but you can
disable it and use the old framebuffer driver.

Sounds like there needs to be a factory Intel KMS wiki page describing
workarounds. I suspect its different for different chipsets, etc.
