Thread: Random system freeze outs = My biggest issue

  1. #1

    Default Random system freeze outs = My biggest issue

    I am very unsure of the exact source of this issue but its one that has been bugging me.
    It seems like once in a while when I have more then 3 windows open at a time in OpenSuse my system goes totally frozen.
    Now my main suspect is KDE4, as that is my DE on OpenSuse but it makes me wonder why on Ubuntu with KDE4 I dont have issues like this.
    Same memory and space for each one, same amount of swap so its really hard to point out where this issue is coming from.
    I am thinking of swapping out for Gnome instead and will probably install it later but if I have more issues I will tell you.
    This needs some detective work to be sure though, so far I have only used KDE4 as many have said OpenSuse and KDE4 is better then anything else and KDE4 but I have experienced otherwise.
    I will run some tests and will tell you the full list of my specs later on.

    You can't compare KDE's really won't be relavent, even the ftp for kde directs you to the suse repos.

    Ubuntu just use upstream, Suse develop and post patches and commit upstream. How many developers does Kubuntu have now? Last time I stumbled across it it was a rather miserly one.

    help the developers and track it, plenty of pages on wiki in bug tracking for kde. Get it up running with ssh, see if you can ssh in, run top, attach gdb etc etc..
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    I am not suggesting KDE4 on Ubuntu is better, I am just saying that KDE4 on OpenSuse feels no different (or better) then KDE4 on Ubuntu.
    But so far it seems that random freeze outs are more common with KDE4 on OpenSuse then on Ubuntu in my experience, but thats the nature of the beast that is open source, works for one person but doesnt for the other

    Thats what I plan to do after installing Gnome, but what is the easiest way to install gnome?
    I dont see a one click installer for it, nor does there seem to be a core package for installing it, on Ubuntu I have the Ubuntu-desktop package and the Gnome package that installs the base gnome packages.
    What is the OpenSuse equivalent?

    Hmmm.. I also get these every once in a while. But most commonly when I'm using firefox.

    For Gnome, open Yast Software Management. For the filter choose Patterns. Find Gnome Desktop Environment and Gnome Base System and put checks next to them. Easy as that

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks, please note people when I compare OpenSuse to Ubuntu I only do so as its my primary OS.
    If I used XP as my primary I would probably compare it with that, though in that case OpenSuse would be a winner

    You sort of missed what I was saying where as Ubuntu is from upstream. Suse isn't it's like comparing apples to oranges just not comparable. Beyond both being round and fruit.

    More so as it is being developed by Suse so is a moving target. Really don't care what you compare it to.

    But if you want to compare KDE to KDE then they need to come from the same source not 2 different sources. What you see in Suse, Ubuntu will see later just like OO, any distro with any savy will use Suses OO.

    Err what?
    How can you compare something made by the same source, isnt that what comparison implies, using two different examples of a similar product?
    This isnt entirely comparing Apples to Oranges, its more like comparing Coke and Sprite.
    Of if we are using fruit comparisons, its like comparing a granny smith apple to a red delicious.

    It is not next you'll be telling me that Suse's OO is the same as Upstream.

    Why does KDE ftp repos point you to Suse then? Don't see any for any other distro's its down to the amount of development Suse does.

    And you've enabled development repos need I say more. Its not the same Ubuntu do very little development for KDE. Which is the big complaint about Ubuntu it takes but doesn't give back.

    Go have a look at the KDE commits.

    To clarify so what one do you think Suse uses

    Discover Go-OO!

    OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

    AFAIK they still try and get commits into OO but if they aren't accepted they're not bothered, its the users of OO that miss out.

    Well I installed Gnome and well have a question.
    How do I get compiz working?
    I installed all the packages and added compiz to my session in gnome but Compiz wont load, I already got the packages needed for it but Compiz simply wont load.
