    Default 12.1 Splash

    Since the last update the system has slowed to a snail pace. The splash screen lists:

    openSUSE 12.1 - 3.1.10-1.9 (default)
    Failsafe -- openSUSE - 12.1 - 3.1.10-1.9 (default)
    Desktop -- openSUSE 12.1 - 3.1.10-1.9
    Failsafe -- openSUSE 12.1 - 3.1.10-1.9 (desktop)

    CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+

    System Monitor CPU History reaches 100% and flattens out for a period. I presume that is the cause of slow response.

    I am also receiving recommended updates for which the system has nothing installed. I was previously under the impression that the software installed was known to the update source.

    Find out what application(s) is(are) doing that. You could run "top" in a
    terminal.

    What program suggests them?

    when you say "Since the last update", how and what do you mean?

    *how* did you update?

    if using zypper, tell what command line input you used..

    and also tell what repos are enabled and refreshed using this input:

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    if using YaST Online update, tell what repos are in use, using the above
    input

    *what* did you update? please return the output from

    Code:
    tail -n50 /var/log/zypp/history | grep install
    please copy/paste the in/output back to this thread using the
    instructions here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    It seems that you are trying to address two problems within one thread. That is not very clever because:
    1. your thread title only mentiones one and it will thus attrackt people that think you have a problem with the splash screen on openSUSE 12.1 and NOT people that may be fluent with Update problems;
    2. the ansers of the two problems will mix in this thread and in the end nobody, including you, will know anymore who says what about which problem.

    I also notice that you do not seem to have a problem with your splash screen, but with system performance after an update. Then please make a title that covers this. For the same reason as mentioned above. The right people should be attrackted to the right problems. This is all in your own interest.

    Something pulled in kernel default

    rpm -qa | grep kernel

    I think we'll see kernel-desktop and kernel-default

    Sorry! Anyway, I am not receiving the "recommended" update anymore.

    The splash screen lists applications as previously mentioned.

    The spash screen you talk about is the Grub boot screen and it contains a list of possible Operating Systems to boot from. Not applications.

    Some time replying. Reloaded a clean 12.1 and now all is fine - except for loading driver for the ONE unsupported Canon printer! But that is another issue to be handled elsewhere.

    Thanks for all the assistance you all have posted.
