[openSUSE] Something strange...

... happens every day.

Some days ago i switched to the latest factory snapshot of openSUSE 12.2. Right after the first boot after installation my screen turns black and i cant access any console. Strange, i played around with the x11failsafe which worked, and thought the problem is maybe part of the mode selections suse does to get a beautiful screen. so i did
bootoption: nomodest

and it worked. I made an bug report and changed the default boot-loader settings to always do this nomodeset. But more strange...

On monday my boss allowed me to use SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) for a 60day trial first and the option to buy a license if it does the job. And i had just the same problem (on a total different hardware regarding ATINvidia, chipset, processor) nomodeset fixed it again. But it shouldn't be made that way.

Update:
As i was told some minuits ago it is also possible to do switch NO_KMS_IN_INITRD to "yes" and a new initrd is generated, which should solve the problem also. I will test it later at home.
