    Exclamation Opensuse 11 freezes at random

    just like the title says. it freezes at random. usualy within 5 to 10 minutes. I'm stuck having to hit the reset button. I'm not doing anything special. One time it happened while I was copying files off an NTFS partition. Another was while it was idle.

    I tried both KDE 4 and 3.5 , no difference. I have formatted and reinstalled several times, and tried with and without any updates.

    My system specs are
    Intel Core2 Duo 2.13GHz
    2GB 533MHz DDR2 RAM
    ATI Radeon x1900gt
    MSI P965E NEO motherboard

    Search this forum for issues with ReiserFS & beagle (if you are using GNOME)

    Could be you have to set some options in your fstab and uninstall beagle.

    Good luck!

    Need a bit more information for anyone to really be able to help. Have you tried running GNOME as your windows manager and see if it has the same error?

    Can you post your dmesg and /var/log/messages possibly your /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

    Some basic troubleshooting would be to switch the box into runlevel 3. (when you log in open a konsole terminal, switch to root and type: init 3). This will knock down the graphics and just leave you with terminal access. Log in and see if the box repeats the lock up just running.

    Did you use ext3 filesystem type?

    I had a similar issue with 10.3 not so long back, turned out the cpu cooler was not doing so well, whacked in an extra fan and now solid as a rock

    not sure if this will help, just my 2c

    Definately had this problem with Beagle [KDE 3 & 4] on ReiserFS. Removed Beagle, fixed the problem.

    kde4 and gnome freeze on me as well, worst still, after reboot, within 10 minutes, freeze again. Not doing anything special, as far as i can recall, the running apps were firefox, thunderbird, openoffice, in total less than 8 open windows.

    My system specs are
    Dell XPS m1330
    Intel Core2 Duo 2.0 GHz
    4GB DDR2 RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS
    ext3 file system

    use advanced search to peek at all with freeze or lock-up in subject
    line (search all the openSuSE web forums with one click)..

    if you do that i think you will find that some folks seem to avoid the
    11.0 freezes by:

    - removing or disabling beagle

    - replacing reiserfs (though it is said the newest kernel is patched)

    - NOT running firefox (using konqueror/opera instead)

    - one person (at least) started avoiding running thunderbird

    - suspecting and fixing excess heat and/or insufficient power supply
    capacity..

    and, some say that their 11.0 runs smoothly, right out of the box..

    Just wondering,why people still use reserfs??!!It has major drawbacks against ext3 not to mention xfs!!!

    For desktop systems (and even some types of servers) reiserfs still does a good job. Compared to ext3, which is very robust, the speed reiserfs offers can outweigh the risks involved. Also many people have had no real issues using reiserfs.

    The xfs filesystem is becoming popular, one thing though is that many partitioning and recovery tools can't handle the format fully (ext and reiser are/where the most commonly used and are well supported) and like reiserfs, xfs has had some stability issues as well. I think the biggest one was in combination with LVM. but not sure about that, that's what I've heard about it.

    I have been using xfs the last couple of moths to have a test and see if it will become my filesystem of choice. So far it's running smoothly and others speak highly of it.
    Have a lot of fun!
