Great that it is all in one place. The issue I have is having a fully functioning YAST-GUI, a IceWM DE with more software pre-installed for newbies
I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

Why such an old kernel? Is there a technical limitation requiring it?

The reason I ask is that I have a 32GB SD card that I want to try OpenSUSE on. When you say it won't work do you mean it won't work at all, or that it will treat it like a 16 GB card?

Thanks.

I had serveral SD card Corruped with use 32G / 64G Cards due the Old kernel.
Due that i stop trying that with the 3.1.x kernel - too expensive for my Project.

Thats why i wrote the warning currently not use bigger cards .

Maybe this changes with future releases , lets see what Bernhard may gives to with the next Images.

Try formating the corrupted cards to how they was before the corruption.

please note that our armv5 repo has moved to
http://download.opensuse.org/ports/armv ... /repo/oss/
so you need to do
zypper rr OLDREPOID
zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/ports/armv ... /repo/oss/ oss

until I find time to update my image accordingly

That format the 32G / 64G card not help when an kernel driver Coorupts the Filesystem any time due missing SHDX kernel support at the opensuse 3.1.x kernel.

Debian and Fedora on the same card works - due has an patched kernel support for those SD cards+32GB.
Make an Diff of the .config from debian and suse kernels and you´ll see what i mean here.

Bernhard been hardy working to get the raspberrypi Image ready for the 3.6.11/3.7x kernel at Current.
The Current Image ( raspberrypi--20130401.img ) not fully ready yet for use.
It contains an few Easter Eggs
I.e mkinitrd failed fully with 3.6.11-0-raspberrypi and -3.7.6-2-versatile .
.. be fixed soo as he find time ..

Dear EvgeniyMakhmudov,

Please read the New Article : http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 53#p331953

This kernel hack FIXed the SHDC / SHDX kernel issues on OpenSuSE 12.3


Note :
I am Not Forum Admin for the OpenSuSE part , so i can NOT edit my own older Article.
