This produces a system with stable accelerated 2D and a working i2c implementation which lets me switch between the Dreamcolor presets and/or disable the dreamcolor engine entirely. I don't have the laptop with me right now but I will post up my kernel config and xorg.conf file later today when I have it.

1. Build
No need to "build" a kernel.

You can add the stable kernel repository to opensuse and install the latest stable kernel. (2.6.37.1)
