Thread: OpenSuse 11.4 freezes on Acer Aspire 1652

    Default OpenSuse 11.4 freezes on Acer Aspire 1652

    Hi there !

    I upgraded yesterday to OpenSuse 11.4 Kde (fresh install from liveCD, was running 11.3 before without much troubles). Now, it freezes every now and then (4-5 times since yesterday), every time when I'm doing something (I let it run for hours to download/backup files without troubles, but sudently I open a tab with firefox, or open dolphin, and it freezes).

    When it happens, everything is freezed, screen, mouse, cannot switch to tty, ...

    I've got no idea what to do for a diagnostic, any help is appreciated.

    Thanks a lot

    >kernel:[ 1734.621464] Disabling IRQ #16

    If that means something to someone...

    olivierkes,
    There is a similar (unsolved) thread here.
    As soon as you boot up, open a terminal and run top. Try and leave the terminal somewhere you can see it so you can write down the processes hogging resources.

    Yes, it means that your hardware is misbehaving. If you do the command 'cat
    /proc/interrupts', you can see what device is on IRQ #16.

    Is your CPU fan system working correctly, or is it overheating?

    I'm new in opensuse. I'm not an expert in linux but i have installed more than 30 linux distros with no problem at all. Today i installed opensuse and it's the first linux distro witch i can't install right. I cannot install ati drivers because i can't see all most nothing on display. I am really really disappointed. I have to give up.

    ....And this has to do with freezing how? No one in this particular thread will be able to help you, start a new thread with the topic "I can't install ati drivers"

    olivierkes, Where are you finding/getting the IRQ #16 error?

    Thanks for the helps.

    Here is the result of the 'cat /proc/interrupts' :

    I get the message either somewhere in the kde notifications, or in any openened console.

    I'll send the result of the top of 'top' during a freeze as soon as my phone wants to send me the picture.

    Oops, forgot to answer this. I'm not sure it is behaving correctly since I switched to Linux (around 3yrs ago). It's very often running full speed, making quite a lot of noise, and my computer can be quite hot, especially when doing things resources-demanding. At least, it is noiser and hotter than when I was using WinXP.

    But I don't see any significant differences between OpenSuse 11.4, 11.3 or anything I used before.
