    That's odd. I've just upgraded and it's OK.
    So, here's a few questions:
    1. what command did you use to upgrade?
    2. what DE are you using (KDE, GNome, other?)?
    3. how are your repos structured (what do you get from this command: zypper lr)?
    4. and what kernel (do you get from this command: uname -r)?
    5. and this one: cat /etc/filesystems
    6. and was it an NTFS drive or a VFAT drive or some other?

    I see two processes here that might have given you a bad update (note the "might", I'm not sure).

    The first is kpackagekit which IMO doesn't simulate a "zypper dup" process (that is the recommended way to go about regular updates).
    The second is the repos. Greg k-h (the package maintainer for Tumbleweed) is developing and testing Tumbleweed with these repositories enabled when doing updates: opensuse-oss, opensuse-non-oss and opensuse-updates, as well as Tumbleweed repos of course.

    So I recommend that you add opensuse-oss and opensuse-non-oss and then (as root) run the command "zypper dup".

    That's not top say it will fix your problem, but it will at least give you a Tumbleweed that's "like" the recommended one, and thus take away one question mark about your problem.

    If you're nervous about running zypper dup, do a dummy run first (zypper dup -D).

    What is packagekit capable of? Vendor change possible?

    - compare what packages packagekit wants to install with "zypper dup"
    - analyze the priorities of your enabled repositories.

    ot) run the command "zypper dup".
    Kpackegekit because i can see immediatly when new packeges come. It seems to me i have your instructions not fully undestood. But i have a question: should i do allways
    "zypper dup", even if it is only new gstreamer-package, or only for "great" upgrades as
    kernel or kde?

    I don't trust kpackagekit in the Tumbleweed context. It gave me some bad advice once or twice (after I changed my distro to Tumbleweed) so I turned it off permanently. I run the simple zypper dup nowdays and take a careful look at what zypper is proposing to do.

    It's up to you of course. There are simple situations and not-simple situations. I would say though, that what you have right now, is possibly a mixture and that you should make it right to see whether the mixture is causing the lock up (maybe it is, maybe it isn't).

    The method I'm advocating is the method used by the package maintainer to test the Tumbleweed repos and the evolution of Tumbleweed. Have a read here, the second portion titled: Updating your RPMs from this point forwards. That's my interpretation of direct query on the mailing list about how to roll forward.

    Hi there,

    just one short question: After rebooting, did you connect the USB stick again?
    I am asking, as I observed, that on my system (11.4, 32bit) the new kernel from Tumbleweed does not request a restart. The kernel is basically working, but appearently the module versions do not match anymore, so I cannot mount a USB device until I reboot...
    Good luck!
