    Default Now i really need some help...

    Im just about to give up OpenSUSE11.1 because i never had so much problems than with 11.1 and KDE4.1

    I bought a new computer and wanted to try OS11.1 on it.
    First try:
    - Installed OS11.1 and KDE4.1
    - Since the computer have a Nvidia 9600GS i added Nvidia Repository
    - Nvidia driver install automatic and KDE almost stop running. Everything is slow. From i click on Firefox it takes 5sek befor it registre the click.
    - Then i try to add driver for my Logitech Web-cam and i installed Opera.
    - Suddenly AGAIN it stops completely to read from CD. I cant install anything in Yast anymore and the whole system become useless.
    - I go to the useraccount and add groups "cdrom", "disk" and "Audio" and then reboot.
    No help!

    I reinstall and choose KDE3.5 since its more stable and finnished than 4.1
    Now even if i select Norwegian, almost everything is on english.
    - Again i install Nvidia-driver and Opera and Java 1.6.11
    - Everything works fine and i choose to live with the english KDE3.5
    - Then again suddenly after a reboot the KDE refuse to start. i say i received "Signal 11".

    Ok! Now im sick and tired of the messed up Nvidia-driver, so i reinstall again and go back to KDE4.1, but this time i will not add Nvidias own driver. I stick to the OpenSUSE nv-driver.
    The system is allot quicker and feels fine.
    Install Opera and latest Java.
    Install VLC and Skype
    Start Kopete and add MSN-account and Yahoo-account
    Reboot
    Boots up ok but now the network dont start again. I need to start network manual with "rcnetwork restart" and the it works.
    Now when Kopete start the Yahoo-account can't login becaus it says it failed the name-resolution.
    Second reboot after installation

    Now something new happens: It want go down as quick as before. I hit ESC and see that it fails "unmounting fuse control filesystem" and "unmounting filesystem".
    After a long time it quits and reboot.
    Now it want boot anymore because it hungs on JExec

    I tryed several time with power-switch and it get stuck on JExec. I understand JExec is something from Java.

    So tell me! What am i doing wrong! Im only install the most normal applications like Opera, Java and Skype.
    I run ALSACONF and get the sound working.
    Everything seems ok, but after e reboot its all messed up!

    Now i realy need some advices!

    I had some of the same problems you describe, starting about a week after a fresh install of 11.1 on a ThinkPad T23, using KDE 4.1.3. I found other users mentioning these problems in some other forum threads.

    For the jexec and fuse problem, if you can get the system to boot, the fix seems to be Yast->System->System Services (Runlevel), scroll to "jexec" in the list, select it, and click Disable.

    For the Network Manager problem the fix seems to be Yast->Network Devices->Network Settings, say OK to the warning, on the Global Options tab, uncheck the Enable IPv6 box.

    I have been running smoothly for several days after making these fixes, and have noticed no bad side effects. I am puzzled why 11.1 ran well for me for about a week, then started these problems.

    Hi and tanx for this info!
    Again my conputer stop reading CDs and DVDs. It mounts it, but i couldnt access the content.
    When this happens it also refuse to install anything in Yast. The whole Yast Software Management hung and i have to re boot the computer to get rid of it.

    After i disable Jexec it start to read CDs and install apps again:-)

    What is this Jexec? It seems to cause allot of problems.

    jexec is a java utility or service that does something with running binary code.

    I believe OpenSuSE 11.1 does not include it. You, another user, and I all got the problem after installing a java update. In my case it was java 6 update 11 from the site java.com: Java + You. This was the first time I had any trouble from using the Sun java updates.

    My solution to jexec was: (as root)
    code:
    rm -r /etc/init.d/*jexec*

    I used the kfind desktop app to find all references to jexec in /etc/init.d
    then edited those files (as root) to delete these references.

    Yast was no help here - it had no idea what jexec was, either.
