    Default freezing Opensuse 11.3 -kernel 2.6.34.4-0.1-default i686

    I have Opensuse 11.3 with kernel 2.6.34.4-0.1-default i686 and use KDE4-4.5.1 from the new OpenSuse repo. My system sometimes freezes while using Firefox or Chrome and also sometimes playing with Kpatience or browsing images with Gwenview.

    My video card is an old Sapphire Radeon working with radeon module and desktop effects are off.

    The only way to bring up the system is hard resetting. I tried also the desktop kernel with no difference.

    Hi,

    Run a htop in terminal to see what could possibly cause this.

    Is your graphic card an Intel integrated? If so, the problem should be fixed with kernel 2.6.35.

    Maybe you would like trying the latest kernel from the repo Index of /repositories/Kernel:/HEAD/openSUSE_11.3 (but, given that this is not a stable repo, keep the kernel that you have already installed so that you can still boot with it if needed)

    I have three laptops which suffer intermittent freezing.

    Once the laptops are frozen everything has stopped responding and only a hard reboot will reset.

    It is not possible to ssh onto the boxes to review processes and no entries in the logs provide any clue since it locks solid before the logs can be written to I guess.

    One has an NVidia graphics card, one is an ATI and one has an older Radeon card but not the same one the OP said above.

    None are Intel graphics card all are using the default opensource video drivers for the various cards.

    Compiz has no effect on the freezes.
    Desktop effects has no effect on the freezes.
    Setting the locklimits has no effect on the freezes.
    No version of the Kernel in the 2.6.34 series has had any effect on the freezes.
    Neither 32bit nor 64bit has any effect on the freezes.
    Neither -desktop or -default kernel has had any effect on the freezes.

    The freezes occur frequently whilst using any browser, firefox, opera etc and sometimes OpenOffice 3.2 whilst doing simple plain operations with no pattern to the operations.
    The freezes occured more frequently in KDE rather than gnome.

    The freezes do not occur whilst using any other software except either browsers or OpenOffice that I have found yet.
    The freezes do not occur whilst using a browser in a virtualbox vm. (no suprise really)
    The freezes did not occur on OpenSuse 11.2 or earlier at any point on any of the machines.

    The only update that had any effect on the freezes was an update released early after building these from a stock 11.3 to the library libmjpeg.....

    This update reduced the frequency of lockups by a factor of about 10 when using browsers such as firefox from around 5 a day to around 1 every 2 days.

    I can only surmise that perhaps something like a common library call is being made by both browsers and openoffice that is locking the machines up solid.

    Ok early days early days but I may have resolved the freezes on two of them.

    I tried all the various failsafe kernel parameters to no effect.

    Then I stopped by in the BIOS and on two of the laptops all the PCI IRQ assignments were set to 11.

    I changed them all to Auto and I havn't had a firefox/browser freeze since on either but too soon to tell and I have yet to try on the third.

    Fingers crossed.

    One of them just froze solid using OpenOffice 3.2!

    Ok back to the drawing board ....

    Just confirming the same freezes occurs in kernel 2.6.36.1-1
