SuSE, openSUSE And another popular Linux distribution pushes a new release out the door. This time around, it's openSUSE, as they just released version 12.1. Other than the usual latest and greatest version of all the open source desktops and associated tools, there's a few other interesting tidbits in this release as well.

The splash screen may work with fglrx. I've got Kubuntu, and I get the splash. Though, I do get a couple stray lines of kernel output, but my el cheapo laptop has weird issues with the graphics outside of windows in general, so your mileage may vary. It's worth trying, though, since fglrx generally performs better and supports more features.

True. I have just installed the fglrx driver from "Apper" (the kpackagekit replacement), so far I have got no problem with plymouth. And the performance really got better.

But I'm really wanting to get a new low end GPU, any recommendations?

Geforce 520. Or at least, anything with an NVIDIA name attached to it, as it'll save you tons of headaches, trust me.
