http://forums.opensuse.org – Computer is an old AcerPower 1000 that been maxed out on RAM and dual Core Athlon64. OpenSuSE 11.3 of course. Computer ran like a scalded cat on 11.2. Being a Linux n00b I initial upgraded to 11.3. The Nvidia 6150le graphics caused major problems I got it half butt installed but resolution was stuck so tonight I did a new install. As a side note imagine my surprised when all my files that I backed up and settings were still there. I went through the instructions using nomodeset, setting NO_KMS to yes, blacklisting nouveau installing gcc, make, kernel-source-desk (Distributions)
