Thread: Desktop freezes

  1. #1

    Default Desktop freezes

    Hi,

    I have a problem with OpenSUSE 11.0. The Desktop freezes a few seconds after logging in. This happens with KDE 3.5.9, KDE 4 and GNOME as normal user and root. I don't have the problem when using IceWM or Enlightenemnt.

    I tried uninstalling Beagle because I read about a beagle-related freezing problem in another thread but this did not help.

    My PC has an Intel Core Duo E8200 and a Nvidia 8500 GT graphics card.

    Thanks,

    Qpoint

    No. There are 2 ext3 partitions, one swap partition and one ntfs partition.

    I'd try the latest NVidia drivers from their site. A shot in the dark, yes.

    Still the same problem with the new nvidia drivers.

    I installed xfce4 and that works as well although there are no window borders. The freezes still happen with kde3, kde4 and gnome after about 10 seconds.

    - was all hardware correctly identified by the install routine?

    - if using a wireless mouse/keyboard, does it make any difference if you
    use wired?

    - have anything plugged into a USB port?

    - 32 or 64 bit (does it do the same if the other is installed)?

    - logs give any hints?

    - you say it freezes after logging in...logging in how? that is are
    manually typing in your id/pass? in a GUI (KDE) environment?

    - As far as i could see all Hardware was detected successfully.

    - mouse and keyboard are wired but usb. except those no other usb device is plugged in

    - i am logging in through kdm by entering a username / password.
    root is local and the users are from active directory of a windows domain. a few seconds after the desktop loads everything freezes for root and other users.

    - the version was 64bit. i don't have access to the PC until in a week's time. i will try the 32bit version then.

    - didn't see anything in the logs but will post them when i'm back at the PC. are there any log files except Xorg.0.log and Xorg.99.log which i should look at?

    thanks,

    qpoint

    take a look at (careful don't change anything) /etc/X11/xorg.conf scroll
    down to the sections dealing with mouse and keyboard..

    under keyboard mine is "Keyboard[0]" because it is generic/wired
    but, under mouse mine says: "Logitech USB Receiver"

    are your correctly identified there?

    you might TRY a shutting down and switching out the usb and pluggin in
    non-usb keyboard and mouse...i read a posting somewhere
    here about someone having such trouble...but the fact is i don't know if
    the boot routine will detect the change and reset all the system params
    needed.....hmmmmm...

    Thanks for the replies.

    I have now tried with the 32bit version and with non-usb mouse and keyboard but it's still the same.

    I noticed that I can use XFCE without a problem until I launch nautilus. The machine locks up about 5 seconds after starting nautilus. I get the follwoing message in the konsole:

    Initializing nautilus-share extension
    Initializing nautilus-open-terminal extension

    Here are the .xsession-errors files for the kde3 and gnome freezes. The first part is the same for all .xsession-errors files:
