Thread: Freeze screen in opensuse 11.3 with kde

    Default Freeze screen in opensuse 11.3 with kde

    Hello, i've had a problema with opensuse 11.3.
    Sometimes (3 times) the O.S. is freeze. STOP everything. And i had that shutdown with button.
    I think that the problem is with KDE, but i dont know.
    somebody know what can cause this? In the all time the opensuse is very fast.

    Thx

    What video card do you have and do you know what driver you use?

    To add to gogalthorp post, if you have desktop effects enabled, disable that and try your luck. Happened to me the same until i disable the desktop effects. Btw Intel card here. No more effects for me because of the video card for 11.3 , 11.2 was fine with it.

    I thought the problem was the effects enabled, but it happened with two ways.
    My video card is GMA4500 intel
    11.2 was fine with it. too

    I too have had this problem since installing 11.3; it has happened with openGL screensavers (but not others), with OpenOffice and today nearly at the end of logging on. It never happened to me with 11.2 but I understand others had had the problem with screensavers in earlier versions. I don't have any hardware known to have problems.

    Up, this is probably the same problem.
    And here is the link to the bug
    report:https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=615649
    with 2
    workarounds.

    Patching the kernel worked for me (accept for a 3D video
    game which crashes the system somethimes).

    I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 yesterday. When I begin to use Mozilla Firefox (version automatically installed with OpenSUSE 11.3) the cursor freezes or locks up (when I move the mouse/cursor-pointer), and the only way I can do anything is turn off the computer and start over (to no avail, because it does the same thing within a a minute or so after entering Mozilla Firefox. I did not have this problem with OpenSUSE 11.2.

    Where do I start looking?

    What can I do?

    Welcome to openSUSE forums.
    Please don't post twice.

    Do you have Intel card too?, Applied the patch above?
    1st disable your desktop effects and then update the driver using above steps in post#6 and jump to comment #40 and apply it.

    Or here it is (comment#40 from bugzilla)
