The errors I refer to are kernel bugs that cause hangs in systems with

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 agree: it is NOT noise.

I wasn't aware of this either.

I will guarantee that 99.9 of people here would not be aware of this.
Like you, this is all news to me.

Question is... is the
only realistic solution to recompile? Yuck. I can do this, but... it
has been a while.

I really do not consider that the solution is to recompile the kernel. I
could do it but I haven't recompiled a kernel for zonks, just like you.

People are having/have been having problems with a new version of oS and
they are asked to submit "bugzillas" (did someone overlook the naming of
"bugzillas" 'bugmoids'?) but they are have not been aware that the
kernel used in oS has a "problem" and may be the cause of the hassle
about which people are furiously writing "bugzillas".

The example is this one been talked about now.

Who would have thought that the kernel in oS is designed for a server
(but then oS *is* the test bed for the commercial version, right? -
stupidos!) and can be made to perform better if compiled with the
options described in this thread?

Personally, I find it offensive that the users of oS are being treated
like jerks and are not being made aware of the "restrictions" built-in
into oS and what they (the users) can do to get a better performance
from oS.

(There is an associated question about distros I may bring up at some
later stage.)
