Hi everyone I have just installed this:
openSUSE-DVD-Build0091-i586.iso Which do I have? factory or RC2?
What exact link? That is the key to know what it is - unless you
track the build numbers.

12.2 RC2 is almost what is going to be releases as 12.2 GM this
September. Versions are frozen, there are almost no updates.

Factory is now 13.1, the future version that will be released
months in the future, and is going ahead, it should have frequent

Surely there have been some updates since RC2 was released.

Try the sequence patch, up, dup.

zypper dup from factory shows OS 12.3 not 13.1 on my system (as of
8/18/12). As usual Nvidia support broken. Even the run file from
Nvidia isn't working.


NVidia knows about this since 304.30 but haven't fixed it in 304.37.
By and large they fix only API differences for stable kernels.

It's fixed by removing the "NULL" from the brackets in the following
line in nv-acpi.c.

- acpi_os_wait_events_complete(NULL);
+ acpi_os_wait_events_complete();


Hi Sid,
Actually I spoke too soon. The problem turned out to be "usr/bin/Xorg"
not being setuid in "etc/permissions.easy". Once that was setuid the
Nvidia driver (I still use 295.53) worked. I'll have to check out the
newer driver to see if it makes any difference.
