http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all, After setting the "nomodeset" kernel parameter, to install the nVidia proprietary driver in OpenSuSE 11.3 (I need to do CUDA development), my Sansa Clip+ is no longer recognized. When I turn the "nomodeset" option off, I can see it with $(fdisk -l). Relevant messages from /var/log/messages are below. thanks in advance, Nicholas Code: Jul 19 19:18:42 oliver kernel: [  214.260079] usb 2-5: USB disconnect, address 2 Jul 19 19:18:49 oliver kernel: [  220.659069] usb 2-5: new high speed (Distributions)
