    Default After yesterdays update KDE freezes

    Hi

    I have a problem. After yesterdays update the machine freezes constantly. It did sometimes before the update as well, now its really an issue, since it will most often do it right away; normally as soon as i open Dolphin or Amarok. Luckily firefox does not seem to 'irritate' it.

    My guess is it could be the driver update to geforce that was included...?

    Any help would be welcome

    Is the NVIDIA driver installed? If not, install the NVIDIA driver.

    I don't recall a graphics update?
    Guess you could roll it back to the previous kernel, see if it all comes good, and we can go from there.

    Hi Caf4926

    Yes yesterday there was an update on my machine. If you look at the picture, the text was **** no. 2 from above, nvdia graphics driver kernel module for GeForce 6xxx and newer GPUs
    perhaps the one below as well.

    And yes there was also a kernel update.

    So you suggest rolling back...?

    How do i go about that...?

    I think you might be mistaken about the nvidia driver
    Look here
    ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/12.1/x86_64/
    Look at the dates

    To roll back you simply toggle the radio button under the version tab

    This is an older picture, but it shows the principle

    Now i have been here long enough to know that you very likely are right; nevertheless my machine had an update yesterday, and as it install that it shows what was installed in a box, one of the items was something like 'graphics driver kernel module for GeForce 6xxx and newer GPUs'

    Why is the driver listed in my yast photo not on the list in your photo...?

    But does we not get the same updates simultaneously+

    You are sure it is the kernel..?

    I come to think of something else, which may or may not be relevant; after I installed 12.1 i couldn't boot into it, then I was advised to write nomodeset in the dialogue box in start up (you I think, gave me that advise?) Then it worked great.
    I wonder if the updates have changed that.
