Most things do work with openSUSE 12.2 after install, except fingerprint-reader and ThinkPoint. ThinkPoint seems ti be a kernel-regression as it works with 2.6-series kernel. Did not yet attempt to use fingerprint-reader.
Almost everything works with ArchLinux, fingerprint reader works, tried only enrolling fingerprints with fingerprint-gui(AUR, run as root).
Most everything works with Ubuntu/Linux Mint(3.5-series Kernel), the only things I haven't managed to get working are the fingerprint reader and the audio from DisplayPort.


Works good for normal usage. Issue only with two hardware-devices, both of which might not be essential for everybody.

I wish to show thanks to you just for bailing me out of this particular trouble.As a result of checking through the the net and meeting techniques that were not productive, I was thinking my life was done.

All works out of the box with OpenSuse 12.3 except the fingerprint Yast module which reports “No fingerprint reader”.
