    I've updated the kernel using zypper. Although the stock kernel 2.6.25.5 didn't failed me yet, the new 2.6.25.9 looks like somewhat faster. It's just one the newest kernel which is called 2.6.25.10 and that powerful beast is just a few days around the corner.

    Thumbs down Re: Kernel Update out 8th July

    I've updated through the automatic updater and rebooted.

    Now kde does not start anymore and I'm presented the text login
    from tty1. tty7 shows only a black screen. According to 'ps aux' kdm is running though.

    Failsafe mode, however, does start kde. Be it only at 800x600 resolution on a 1920x1200 screen.

    Can I undo this update somehow?


    I'm running:
    Lenovo T61p
    Core 2 Duo T9300
    2 gb ram
    Opensuse 11.0
    KDE 3.5
    Compiz 0.7.6

    Don't undo it; it's you video driver most likely
    Try:
    let it boot to the command line
    login as root & password
    Type: "sax2 -m 0=vesa" (which is a crappy driver, but will get you up)
    do the setup & save
    reboot

    Now go about getting your good video driver as before

    How did you install the video driver? If you used Yast, then the kernel
    module was updated and we have one case. If compiled the driver or
    installed from any source not using Yast (or RPM), you need to re-install
    the driver to get the kernel modules updated. I had the same issue with
    the VirtualBox pre-compiled binary - simply re-ran the installer that came
    with the package and all was well.

    Mine went well also..

    On another note you should consider migrating to VirtualBox.. I'll be blogging why I switched soon.

    Unhappy Re: Kernel Update out 8th July

    I have a similar problem.
    I updated the kernel and when I rebooted the following happened:

    Computer was stuck at POST. I had to shut it down, not reset, in order to get the GRUB menu.

    Selecting the opensuse as normal I get a black screen and it just sits there. I need to shutdown and get the GRUB menu again.

    Selecting failsafe starts up and it loads gnome or kde fine with the resolution resulting in a big screen.

    Any ideas? I can't say it is the drivers because it's not even starting.

    Thank you
