I am running.. 2.6.18.8.. that is after downloading the latest kernel after the machine has been up..  Have you tried the 64bit version?  the x86 version DOES NOT support the athlon 64 CPU..

  lol, keep the thing going, this could be a cache of information :)

Thanks Swimmer      *listens attentively *

Yeah I made this..  It is important enough...

:oops: oops, i downloaded the x86 because i read it supported amd's so my fault. i'll post the link next so i know i'm downloading the right one

edit- so i should download the x86-64 right?  here is what it says on opensuse.org   

x86-64

This architecture supports the following processors:

    * AMD Opteron, Athlon 64, AMD Athlon 64 X2, Sempron 64, Turion 64

    * Intel Xeon, Xeon MP, Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, Pentium D, Core 2 Duo

    * Processors based on AMD's AMD64 & Intel's EM64T (Intel's implementation of AMD64)

I am a huge fan of KDE... The default installation includes XGL and Compiz.  I am currently running KDE with XGL.  It run awesome!  However, get XGL up first and then run the updates.  Otherwise I have had problems when I try and shutdown the machine from KDE X-Windows exits but then just puts me to a command line login. 

How to get XGL up and running on 10.2

If you have no idea what we are talking about..

The main difference between gnome and kde are not that big.. it is like the difference between dlink and linksys.. both, for the most part, do the exact same thing...  It is just personal preference...
