http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all, I've recently installed opensuse 11.2 with KDE on a sony vaio z-series, and everything works fine - at home. When I connect it to my work's network (either ethernet or wireless), within about twenty seconds the desktop freezes. If I have any applications open, I can still use them, but I can't open the k-menu or interact with any plasmoids. If I unplug the ethernet cable everything starts working again after a few minutes (though with some odd graphical behaviour). I've tried disabling the firewall and turning off the desktop effects (after reading somewhere that this might help) to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated! (Distributions)
