Thread: Suse 12.2 randomly freezes on 2 different upgraded systems. Need help to troubleshoot the problem

    Unhappy Suse 12.2 randomly freezes on 2 different upgraded systems. Need help to troubleshoot the problem

    I had upgraded a desktop system with 11.4 32bit and Lenovo Laptop Z575 with 12.1 to 12.2.
    Both systems have a stability issues and randomly freeze (keyboard/mouse not responding, accessing the system remotely is not possible and internal sound card starting producing a high pitch sound).
    Looking the way to collect some troubleshooting information to submit a defect.

    Log file /var/log/message doesn't contain any useful information at the time of event.

    Sometimes system freezes almost immediately when
    1) started playing music
    2) started watching youtube video
    3) accessing a web camera

    However it may freeze on idle when basically no desktop application is running.

    I upgraded a pulseaudio from multimedia:libs and at least accessing the web camera no longer freezes the system every time.

    A note: system crashed while preparing this posting. Kudos to SuSE team with autosave feature

    Did you install the NVIDIA drivers? Support for hybrid graphics is still quite young

    Yes, they was installed. I have uninstalled it. Let's wait some time. :-)

    Indeed, a latest kernel update seems to have some issues fixed.
    Kernel is downloaded from the repo: URL: Index of /repositories/Kernel:/openSUSE-12.2/standard
