Hello SuSE people,

Well it shouldn't have been a surprise to me and undoubtedly to none of you.

Wanted to update to the official KDE4.2 and I just let Yast update all newer
packages. Dumb,,,,Of course I got 11.2 Alpha and a new kernel. Oh well, this
IS my test machine. There are a few weird things in Yast but other stuff
seems OK (so far) It didn't download the nvidia counterpart to the new kernel
and I had to change xorg.conf to "nv" to get a screen. If anyone has a clear
cut method to do that, it would be appreciated.

And here is my question: In my repositories I have 11.1 oss, non-oss, etc.
Should I be disabling them and be going all factory, or just leave them be.
Didn't see an 11.2 Alpha oss, non-oss, etc in Factory.

You have to have the kernel development pattern installed use the nvidia
run package to compile the driver when using factory. Go to and download the
correct package, you will find instructions there as well.
