I`ve installed SuSE 9.3 Professional and as usual except for swap it don`t identify my Linux partitions (swap,/,home), The floppy disc don`t work anymore ("The process for the media protocol died unexpectedly") and the login is slow and the panel takes ages to fill up. Opening the control centre is slow. You can`t have a login background photo, the tools are there to do it but the default background comes on after a couple of seconds. After a few minutes inactivity you get a black screen (not screensaver) and I can`t find anyway to stop it, theres only laptop battery in the power control.
However the plastic wallet the disks came in was good...
-*-Update-*- Although Yast could`nt help my power problems I found KPowersave in the menus (it was probably in the panel before I uncluttered it) and after 3 attempts and dissabling everything I can now stop the screen from going blank.
No change in the Floppy yet.
-*-Update 2-*- Ah Ha, fathomed the floppy out, its the old permissions thing in disguise (circa Mandrake 7.0). Instead of "you do not have sufficient permissions" its now "The process died". I used the root console and made me the owner and it works now.
