A couple of weeks ago I was going to give my doctor a copy of a Live KDE CD

The released versions (11.4 and 12.1) boot and run properly other than the problems with KMS video drivers, but that is a kernel issue, not a problem with openSUSE. These problems have all been with 12.2.

Correct, but the problem with the driver is a "show-stopper" when giving someone, who has known nothing but Windows in their life, a LIVE CD to get them to try out what openSUSE looks like (not only a bad reflection on oS but a very poor reflection on Linux distros generally; a major blemish in one reflects on all).

getting the CDs to work as they used to :-) .
Enviously, because of my lack of ability, I wish you all the very best in



And may I offer you my (our collective) Thanks for getting the problem sorted out! I downloaded the Beta LIVE CD and it boots into live-mode without any problems - no "nomodetest", nothing! :-)

One's spirit has been lifted once again and the future looks bright :-) .
