Well SURE he'd have the same problem using an older version of SUSE as 
well. But, if he wants LTS then he would have to use something not as 
brand new. Had he followed the upgrade path he would have had newer 
kernels that would handle the hardware. But, he installed the newest 
kernel, which kinda breaks the norm for his LTS install. I am very glad 
that he managed to beat that problem!! No one can say that the OT just 
gave up.

SUSE is a bunch of Caldera killers anyway, which led to everything else 
that followed. You wouldn't catch ME there, <pffffs> Ric
