Thanks for the fast reponse!
My acpi was working just fine. On my tool bar I had a power /battery Icon which worked perfectly. After the update, now when i boot my system up, when it get to the desktop to load the toolbar Icons, it says"No acpi in kernel found". Now it only shows that AC power is on, and that there is NO BATTERY connected(Which there is), and NO battery stats. On the other hand, when I go into my hard drive files, I can click on the power management files, on open them up, and get battery %.....etc.... The sound card was found by SUSE when it was installed. I went to YAST and configured the card. It says,"snd_ali5451" configured as 0. I have no sound, alsa mixer says pipeline not found. When I click on sound it says,"No such device". BUT, when I look in my Hard drive files, THERE IT IS!...UGHHHHH
