I have just installed QGIS (Wroclaw) on an OpenSuse v12.1 AMD64 workstation. I was using the default nouveau graphics driver, tried to start QGIS but this crashed my xsession almost immediately on startup.
I installed the ATi flgrx driver and QGIS now runs. Whether the issue is QGIS or the nouveau ATi driver I'm not sure, but no other application has had problems like this.
