suse 11.1 on samsung r40

increasingly fed up with the flakiness of xorg on the Samsung R 40 laptop with my ubuntu 9.04. Constantly had to reboot using the rescue mode.

Notes for using suse 11.1 with KDE:

  1. Imagemagick is installed by default
  2. Touchfreeze is a possible solution to the ‘cursor jumping whilst typing’ problem, although see this forum post desribing how to use syndaemon
  3. Add the comunity based repos, especially the xxxman one
  4. Mythtv frontend can be called from YaST2
  5. DVD playback is an issue
