OpenSUSE 11.3 (Gnome): More using than testing. Haven't found any glaring items that didn't work or needed software modification. Two issues mentioned elsewhere: system hibernation when lid/screen closed, screen rotation with pen support. Have not tested screen rotation; no problems with pen; system setting for lid/screen close, I have it set to Suspend which the system does.


OpenSUSE 11.3 works out of the box.

Can repor that the Led notification on the network card doesn't work correctly.
It's supposted to shine with a constant blue light, but it flashes between blue and yellowU/orange.
I just 11:04 as of now, but i still have this problem in 10.04.

Also, the pen seems to lock down the keyboard is it can't be used.
