    Default Re: Unresponsive Applications. Apps freeze. Suse 11.1

    Thanks for helping me.

    I have a Dell M6400 with a QuadroFX 3700M, 12Gb Ram, dual X9100@3.06Ghz
    500GB Raid 1. Using Gnome. It's my coding laptop :-)

    I am using it mostly for coding with Eclipse and Netbeans.

    I do not have beagle installed, When my computer freeze I don't see anything stange with 'top' and I am monitoring the cpu, ram, disk/swapp, and network at all time. Doesn't seem to show anything interesting whe the apps lock. It is very frustrating since it interrupt my work almost evey 10-15 minutes.

    I am using compiz and Desktop effects. I also have a 8 years old dell with a gforce 9600, 4g ram. No problems. I only get the locks on the M6400.

    Best

    Maybe it's just me, but the Acrobat Reader (acroread) will bite me every so
    often - starts a load then hangs eating as much CPU as it can get looking
    like a total hang. Sometimes it will work its' way out of the mess but
    usually I have to kill it. Some cases I wind up having to use Ctl-Alt-F1
    to get to a command line just to nuke it. You might try that and running
    top next time you get what seems to be a hang - just be patient and you
    will probably get there eventually. If you can identify a hung program
    eating the CPU and killing that program gets you back on track, you've
    found the culprit. I've also seen Java apps hogging the CPU until it looks
    like a hang.

    Maybe see if

    Code:
    metacity --replace &
    in a terminal fixes it? Or if you need compositing for a dock or some such

    Code:
    metacity --replace --composite &

    Hi,
    After install an OpenSuse 11.1, I really loved it, but I experienced a problems with comipz.
    Whell, at Compiz Fusion - openSUSE I re-intall it and works (except zoom, still turned off)

    Yeah, that's the page I used to configure my initial Compiz setup.
    I Disabled desktop effects and switched to metacity.

    Still freeze sometimes but less frequently, not sure it's related to
    compiz but maybe compiz make it worst for some reasons?
    (Not that it make any sense)

    Whenever I use Firefox, Opera or Konqueror,
    my laptop freeze like every 2 minutes or almost..
    unusable. I can't even ctrl-alt-f1. Sometimes even the mouse freeze.

    Maybe I should try to work for a whole day disabling network interfaces and not using any web or else.

    I noticed that I am "loosing" connection to my wifi from time to time. not sure it's related.

    The wireless might the cause of the problem.

    Have you tried disabling it to see if that works any better?

    Which wireless card do you have?

    You can find the model by opening a terminal and typing lspci, or if it is a USB adapter - lsusb.

    It should be listed there somewhere.

    It could also be an acpi problem, I'm no expert so I can't give much advice there other than adding noacpi to the end of your boot line (just start typing at the grub boot menu I believe, or press e to edit.

Not until I ssh from another box and kill compiz does the freeze come to an end. I have wanted to switch to openSuSE for while now because Fedora has become so unstable and unrefined. This lockup with compiz has kept me from switching. I have an Nvidia 8500GT card, Intel chipset with quad core Core 2 CPU. I just don't get why this happens, and the HOW-TO's aren't cutting it for me.
    I have the exactly same behaviour. I just installed OpenSuSE 11.1 x64 on my wife's HP Pavilion DV3610. It has a Nvidia 9300M, Intel chipset and a Core2Duo CPU.

    After the install I updated the system to the most recent packages, including the 2.6.27.25 kernel. I then tried to install the nvidia driver with 1-click, unfortunately without success. Instead I downloaded the latest nvidia driver (185.18.31) from their website and compiled the kernel module myself. Now the nvidia driver works, but I have the same lockups as described above when using Compiz.

    Before Ubuntu was used on the same computer. In that installation compiz worked like a charm together with the nvidia driver.

    Any suggestions on what to do? My wife (and myself) really like OpenSuSE and would love to get it working. But without desktop effects, we'd probably moves back to Ubuntu.

    Thanks in advance,
