    Hi,

    When plugging in a fat usb memory 512KB device the PC has frozen.
    The indication is the mouse pointer disappears from the screen and keyboard is dead.
    There after recovery is only by switching the mains power off and rebooting.

    This has occurred 3 times in 3 days. It is random and not repeatable.

    Current user: michael@linux-qz4c
    System: openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64)
    KDE: 4.6.3 (4.6.3) "release 1"

    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    All files have been transferred to a usb memory device with ext4 formatting. I'll
    report back if any discrepancies occur.

    The usb seems unstable. This evening when a usb camera was plugged in, it was
    not recognised although previously it had been.
    A reboot was possible and necessary before the SD card could be read via a card reader.

    Regards,

    Michael

    Note: All installed packages are per the repos, Tumbleweed and openSUSE11.4_update.
    Many, as expected, are in advance of openSUSE11.4_oss

    This happened 24 hours ago to eugeniak1, who used the wrong method to roll forward with Tumbleweed.

    Please post here your repos, i.e. the return from this command: zypper lr
    And, what method do you use to make regular Tumbleweed updates?

    Hi,

    Yast is the only method used for updates.
    Updates are done manually and selectively. Weekly when OS is stable, otherwise daily.

    All packages are in line with repos below except for openSUSE-11.4-oss.

    Today a few attempts loading usb memory sticks were successful.
    Now with OS: Linux 2.6.38.6-29-desktop x86_64

    Code:

    Mike,

    That's a mess

    Please post:

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    so we can be sure of the URL's you have

    You need to have refresh ON with the repos you plan to use.
    See the guide by @swerdna
    HowTo: upgrade openSUSE 11.4 to Tumbleweed

    I'm pretty sure QT 47 is NOT a good idea
    As is the case with much of what you have.

    I see 5 repo's in John's guide
    Tumbleweed_KDE

    Hi caf4926,

    Note, I only have 8 repos enabled, the others are ignored.
    Most of them should have been deleted but I'm in unsure mode.

    Default Re: USB device leads to PC freeze

    I endorse what caf4926 said. I would enable=yes and refresh=on for 11.4 updates, 11.4-oss, 11.4-non-oss, Tumbleweed and Tumbleweed-Packman. (I'd defo turn off libdvdcss). Then run "zypper dup -D" and see if it's going to be OK (-D is dummy run). Then run the actual update (zypper dup). Then if you like turn back on Mozilla & google-earth, for a single extra pass of "zypper dup", then turn them off again. I don't know or understand the X11 repo.

    There are of course other ways to retrieve your situation, but this is a way with a reasonable probability of success.

    I'd even be deleting all the other repo's just to get a fresh, non-confusing suite. (but I'm easily confused lol).
