  1. You must be joking.
    This problem is not so simple.
    Try this and don't expect much:

    Well it hangs the KDE system.
    .... Mine OpenSuse won't started anymore (hangs at the lizard screen - KDE just don't started)....
    Which annoys me very much.
    Can't find jockey, can't install normal drivers......what the hell is going on?

    So don't try it unless you're certain about what you're doing!
