Wireless connection time on 11.3 much worse than 11.2view story

http://forums.opensuse.org – It is taking up to 3 minutes after the desktop has come up (T42 thinkpad with opensuse 11.3 + kde 4.4.4 rel 2) before wifi connection is completed. This is much much slower than 11.2 and kde 3.? or even M$ XP. The fix suggested in this forum makes no discernible improvement. Does anybody know why this change has been made and when it will be sorted out. Budgie2 (Distributions)

NFS-shares do not mount at start anymoreview story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hi,I have a small NFS-network at home that has worked quite fine for some years now. But one or two weeks ago the client suddenly stopped mounting shares automatically after getting access to the network (usually via wifi using Network Manager).
