I thought SLES 11.1 came with 2.6.32, not 2.6.27. Try updating your kernel. Try updating/installing xorg-x11-driver-video-intel or similarly named package, if available. Try reading this post.

Use yast2 instead. Specifically, the software sources, online update, and software management functions. If you need help, Novell has some good documentation and support.

So you have OPENsuse, not regular SuSE (SLES). My mistake for assuming.

Read the documentation, do a search.. I have already pointed you at the place to do software updates/installs.

ok i am having trouble connecting internet via adsl router when i checked my ifconfig it only shows loopback address not showing eth0 sometimes it shows but then i am not able to ping to my adsl router i think open suse 11.1 sucks i think now its time to go to newer version of linux my requirements are as follows 1)3d desktop must have inbuilt intel dg41 rq drivers 2) easy to use gui like open suse 11.1 3) rich gui 4) multimedia ready means can play lots of video formats like mpeg avi etc etc. any good suggestions are always welcome thanks in advance.
