Thank you, Duncan, for this info. In fact, openSUSE 11.2 is due in November, 
so I better wait whether this brings all the goodies I need.

I have tried, though, to upgrade the intel driver, which needed an upgrade of 
Xorg first. This I tried too, from the openSUSE Build Service, which resulted 
in a mess, lets say: The Xserver would not start anymore, and downgrading back 
again did not help. I ended up in reinstalling 11.1. So I better leave the 
system as it is and wait for the better.

Thanks again,
