    Default Help on something

    Just made a fresh OpenSuse 11.1 x64 install and also went to Yast-Online Updating then went to @System and right clicked over the repositories, update all if new version.

    I read among all updates something about Kernel update.



    Problem started when after rebooting i installed ATI driver. After rebooting again i some weird things on boot up and some flickering on desktop for some seconds. Also screen is kinda sluggish, if i move a window over another i get some weierd drawings.

    This is the info i could get:
    Linux 2.6.27.25-0.1-default x86_64
    openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
    4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3) "release 4.10.4"

    ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
    2.1.8494 Release

    Dont know what could be causing the problem.
    Thanks

    Update: I just read another Topic here on the forum and i read something about kernel and graphic drivers should match, so i did a downgrade from kernel 2.6.27.25 to 2.6.27.19 so that it matches the ATI drivers. Still flickering

    Which drivers were you using? and where did you get them from?

    oneclick
    the repos
    the ATI site?

    If there is a kernel update and you got them from ATI then then you just
    need to re-install.

    If from the repos then they should have been updated with the kernel but
    maybe not so just try and re-install anyway.

    You will need to re-install them again, you will need to start in run-level
    3 by typing just the number 3 at the grub boot screen when you select to
    boot SuSE.

    This will drop you to a console, login as root, enter password and then
    run::

    sax2 -r -m 0=vesa

    This should start sax and if you get graphics then accept and do the test to
    be sure, then save.

    Don`t worry about configuring anything if the resolution is not right just
    as long as you get something on the screen.

    Now when you get back to the console type:;

    init 5

    now you should be running go back to SuSE and do the oneclick again if you
    want to.

    See if all that works but first I would update the kernel and all that needs
    to be updated then innstall thee drivers.

    HTH

    Any probs just holler.

    I just encountered a new issue regarding Folding@Home and older 2.6.27 kernels and older.

    I just checked
    Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_Factory/x86_64
    and found that there is a 2.6.31 kernel available, what do i have to do to update?


    I know it may be a bit hard to explain
    Thanks

    You'd have to do a very lot, since a lot of the linux kernel development has changed. Just installing the HEAD kernel will definitely bring you in the kind of trouble you cannot solve through these fora. This kernel is meant for developpers and testers.
    Yet, if you do need the 2.6.31 kernel, go for the most recent Milestone release or Factory Live CD.

    Hmmm yea that sounds pretty complicated, though even kernel 2.6.28 would work, just need something newer than 2.6.27.

    This if what i was told on F@H forum:

    Does your linux distribution uses a 2.6.27 kernel ? If yes, upgrade your kernel to a more recent one (2.6.28 or more recent), downgrade to an older one (2.6.24 or less) or install another distribution with one of the kernels mentioned above.
