Submission + - HP 2133 Mini-Note broken by own updates->

Nailer writes: It turns out HP's 2133 Mini-Note isn't quite as good as originally thought.

Like most modern OSs, Novell's SLED prompts users to install it's most recent updates. Open the 2133 and Novell's Zenworks updater will ask you to install SLED 10 SP2, which contains a number of important bits including 'cumulative security patches, maintenance updates, and bug fixes', and essential 3G networking support for NetworkManager.

One problem, however: the update is breaking the 2133 for everyone. Over and over again.
