Thread: Desktop Hangs And Does Not Shut Down Properly

  1. #1

    Default Desktop Hangs And Does Not Shut Down Properly

    I am using openSUSE 12.1, 64-bit, with KDE 4.7.2.
    My motherboard is MSI Eclipse X58.
    My graphics card is Radeon HD 4850.

    As I said in the subject line, the desktop no longer shuts down properly. This started about a week ago when an update that had something to do with the kernel got installed. I am not exactly sure what the update was about, but I remember it had something to do with the kernel.

    uname -r shows this kernel 3.1.10-1.13-desktop to be installed.

    Anyhow, every time that I click on the Shut Down icon, the desktop starts the shutdown process but then hangs at the green KDE screen that shows a lizard. My only recourse is to press the power button on the desktop case and do a hard shutdown.

    What can a Linux newbie like me do to solve this problem?

    Thanks.

    This is a known version with that release of the kernel - there are other
    threads about this topic in the install/boot forum, so you might check
    those for possible solutions.

    This Kernel-Version was deleted from the Update-repo because of this issues.

    Downgrade to Kernel-Version:
    Code:
    uname -r
    3.1.10-1.9-desktop

    I'm seeing a similar problem with

    uname -a
    Linux linux-sfbc 3.4.3-30-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jun 18 11:52:36 UTC 2012 (41613b0) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    the only way of finding a clean exit is to run one of the following cmds

    kdesu -c 'reboot'

    or

    kdesu -c 'halt -hip'

    with both root privileges are needed

    anything else puts me back into terminal mode

    over the past week Tumbleweed has downgraded lots of packages,
    I assume the glitch is in one of those

    otherwise it may be a file permissions problem
