openSUSE - 2 issues remains: flash player crashes and wifi looses connection ...
 
Hello,

I'm using openSUSE 12.1 (with Gnome 3, on laptop Toshiba with core i5 and NVidia GT330M) and managed to make most of the things and solve most of the problems I met - like install the Nvidia driver. But these two remains:

1. The driver in the kernel recognizes the wireless card and I can connect with no problem ... but what happens is that randomly the internet connection just goes away. The connection to the wireless router is active, but no internet connection. And this happens on many different places, not just on one router.
So ... is there a way to see what's the problem? ... any command that I should write when this happens next time?

2. The second problem is that the flash player crashes so many times that makes me crazy ... so is there any specific thing I can do about it?
I read that the problem could be with the Nvidia driver. The driver is installed by compiling it in single user mode ... but if the problem is with this - can I workaround it easily?

Thanks in advance :)
Regards,
Petar

A little additional info ...
 
Hello,

I just tried Ubuntu from USB and it worked with no problems ... and then I saw that Ubuntu uses Kernel 3.2.0, while my openSUSE uses 3.1.10.

So, could this help with solving the problem? ... at least the problem with the wifi ?

Regards,
Petar
