I saw that as well. I don't know if something for Gentoo will work for SuSE anyway. I was told to either wait for the 2.20.x kernel or for 10.3 to come out.
What if the kernel doesn't like the desktop or won't compile?
What is the exact command line syntax to make this happen safely? (eg. no "force" switches)
I tried to mess with a kernel twice..... disaster !! I had to reinstall from scratch both times. I learned that one should simply use the most recent version of Linux. eg. do NOT try to get Mandrake 10 to work with Linksys wireless and SATA II drives.
...metisse (which is unstable -- requires issuing killallxmetisse to shutdown for desktop and laptop)
Mepis 6.0 (great for a desktop, erratic on the Lenovo) ... ditto 6.5
Then SuSE 10.2 which is flawless except for lack of sound support..... Hmmmmm
It sounds like that special time to backup the /home folder and try another distro, probably this one. It is either (or both) fabricating new spark plug wires for the motorcycle or scrapping SuSE for Sabayon.
I'm using a Core Duo CPU combined with 2 gigs of 667 speed RAM. This should be enough for any version of UNIX or Linux. Even Vista, which is the world's worst memory hog, runs OK with this. Strangely enough, Vista uses only about 30% to 50% of the CPU bandwidth for normal operation.
