The errors I refer to are kernel bugs that cause hangs in systems with
preemption enabled (see
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=447974 for details).

Oh, I am not using Factory. I did not know about this bug- sorry for the
noise. However, the default kernel in regular version is still in essence
a server kernel. IMHO, I think SUSE should offer different kernels for
different audiences- this we can learn from Ubuntu.

It's not noise. I wasn't aware of this either. Question is... is the
only realistic solution to recompile? Yuck. I can do this, but... it
has been a while.


You can always use the kernel from opensuse 11.

You mean the older 2.6.25 or 2.6 26 kernel? I did roll back to a
2.6.26 kernel from the 11.0 tree, but that really is a poor solution
to a problem. The 2.6.26 kernel was better... frame rates were more
stable, but still had issues with periodic slowdowns... instead of
dropping from 70fps to 9fps like I was with the .27 kernel, I would
see 70fps dropping to 30fps with only occasional issues with under
10fps.

I am back on the latest 32 bit 2.6.27 kernel from the 11.1 tree and am
recompiling right now with the options C.P. Chan recommended. it will
be interesting to see if this makes any difference.

I am also going to move over to 64-bit when I get a chance to test
there as well.
