Thread: OpenSUSE 12.3 freezes randomly, help to diagnose? (not stock, extra repos)

    Default OpenSUSE 12.3 freezes randomly, help to diagnose? (not stock, extra repos)

    Hello, days ago I installed opensuse 12.3 from dvd iso. I was on 12.2 before and I decided to install 12.3 clean instead of upgrade.

    Sometimes it randomly freezes. I mean I can't move the mouse pointer. Keys do nothing. Can't access terminals. (alt+ctrl+F(x) doesn't work, neither ctrl+alt+del).
    Kde clock is freezed too. Everything is freezed.

    I'm a newbie when it comes to diagnose linux problems, I don't know if it's kernel related or kde, but I don't think kde because I can't access other ttys.

    I must say that I have some extra repo:
    - kernel:stable repo (3.9.6 now),
    - nvidia optimus via bumblebee (overman79 repo),
    - kde 4.10 repo upstream core+extra repo.

    I'm removing right now the kde repo upstream and use 12.3 core packages, to see if the problem is something in kde updates.

    It randomly freezes. One time it did that while opening dolphin, another time while usb pen was inserted. The last one I can remember I was fixing virtualbox to start with the new kernel.
    Then opened virtualbox, I started a virtual machine and just when I clicked "start" the system has frozen.

    - Where I should start to find problems, which log? so I know which logs to post when it happens.

    no errors in xorg logs.
    Below is /var/log/messages
    of when it happened, taken after reboot, until the end of the logged session.
    First lines was me typing that into konsole, then I started virtualbox and from [1215.525141] I guess was when I hit "start" button to start the virtual machine.

    What means "BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffffffa0e75500"? I read right, xkbcomp taints kernel?
    "Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!"?

    Now that I think about this it seems I was getting this "fixing recursive fault..." while I shutdown, after plymouth logo it shows something like that.

    Please post output of
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    rpm -qa | grep kernel-
    between CODE tags, the # in the editor.

    To continue: you don't describe how you use the extra repos. Nor why you chose to install a different kernel.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    I recently tried to install Gentoo (and failed to get the kde desktop) so came here.

    One thing I, eventually, noticed when I restarted installing Gentoo was I had duplicate files creating all kinds of complications, making me wonder whether you formatted your partitions when moving from 12.2 to 12.3

    If not, you might have duplicate files which are confusing your computer.

    So try, code

    cd /etc

    ls

    and look for files with almost identical names

    partitions were formatted when installing.

    Knurpht, it's localized italian, so these are the meanings:
    si=yes
    no=not
    servizio=service
    abilitato=enabled
    aggiornamento=updated

    office repo is just for freemind,
    overman79 is for nvidia optimus, bumblebee etc.
    acc-id is for unetbootin
    neocrust for gmusicbrowser

    kde 410repo was installed just to try.
    kde extra for dropbox, plasmoid-redshift
    network repo could be removed

    Code:
    roberto@linux-vdyp:~> rpm -qa | grep kernel-
    
    patterns-openSUSE-devel_kernel-12.3-7.10.1.x86_64
    kernel-desktop-3.9.6-1.1.g8ead728.x86_64
    kernel-xen-devel-3.9.6-1.1.g8ead728.x86_64
    kernel-desktop-3.7.10-1.1.1.x86_64
    kernel-desktop-devel-3.9.6-1.1.g8ead728.x86_64
    kernel-firmware-20130114git-36.1.noarch
    kernel-source-3.9.6-1.1.g8ead728.noarch
    kernel-devel-3.9.6-1.1.g8ead728.noarch
    kernel-desktop-3.7.10-1.11.1.x86_64
    I installed kernel 3.9.6 because it has some fixes about usb alsa, as I use a usb soundcard and had problems in past. More or less wanted to see if it fixed some usb audio problems.

    Ask whatever you need to know.
    Should I go back to 3.7.10 for a while to see if it happens there?

    Cool Re: OpenSUSE 12.3 freezes randomly, help to diagnose? (not stock, extra repos)

    I cleaned repos a bit, downgraded kernel to opensuse 12.3 default repo. Kde to default and I added "updated apps" repo.
    Everything looks and works fine (and faster ).
    There were too many things in play, too many "unstable packages" (nvidia bumblebee, virtualbox, kde, kernel bla bla bla), too much time to find who was the cause.
    Those kernel messages aren't showing with 3.7.10 kernel.
    Everything working fine on defaults kde and kernel repos. No freezes.

    There are a few repositories that have a history of being current, tested and stable. LibreOffice is one, KDE is another. The HOME repos are a different matter. These are basically playgrounds for their maintainers, and unless you know and trust the person and need a specific package, it's best to stay away from these. They can cause trouble, as you've seen.
