Thread: 11.3 kde freezes up all the time, presumably gfx chip related

  1. #1

    Angry 11.3 kde freezes up all the time, presumably gfx chip related

    my new 11.3 installation appears to be completely unusable for mission critical work

    it's running/freezing on a Toshiba a300 laptop, intel 965gm gfx, using the drivers that where installed by 11.3

    whenever the unstoppable screen/monitor saver kicks in, it freezes the machine irrecoverably.
    same as: 11.3 kde constant lock ups

    the unstoppable screen/monitor saver has been a pain in the neck in 11.2 too, is it possible to COMPLETELY REMOVE any code that will make the gfx go on standby? what a pain when you are watching a movie! disabling everything obvious never worked! wtf?

    Hi folks,
    I couldn't edit the original mail.
    This is how it should have read:

    Hi, I have been using Suse since 10.3, now with 11.3 I am experiencing some highly unusual BS:

    I have the same problem on my Asus EEE PC 1000HE.
    I was thinking it was the EEE-control deamon, but the gfx would make sense too.
    I've got a intel GFX, not sure what model exactly, but it should be pretty standard for the EEE series.

    Bad intel drivers...

    Same Problem here. Have a Medion MD96290 with Intel GMA. There where no Problems like this with SUSE 11.2 but now the complete machine freezes after a few minutes on full screen. Would be great if anyone can help, otherwise i'm forced to keep all videos in a small window which is ridiculous.

    Thanks mate, much appreciated!
    At least they're working on it.

    the comment #45 solution supposedly works, but I'll wait for the official fix
