Thread: 13.1 - Freezing

  1. #1

    Default 13.1 - Freezing

    After performing an upgrade from 12.3, I was left without X due to driver incompatibility...No problem download latest nVidia, build and install..all good..X running again. Everything else working ok.

    This is where I get stumped, applications start (after a long time) then freeze, you cant click on menus,icons etc...Some work (mostly yast, sysconfig, ..) but others Firefox, konqueror just freeze. Then eventually the desktop freezes

    Try removing special effects, change renderer, compositing engine, no effect.
    Try different windows manager (LXDE) worse froze straight away, conclude with X

    Start in recovery mode, more applications work, and the desktop doesn't just freeze after a while, but still not all apps will run.

    Blow away install, and perform completely clean install, same thing...

    Any thoughts?

    Hardware config:
    Gigabyte -GA990F m/b
    nVidia GTX560
    AMD Phenon X4
    8 Gig Ram
    SSD 120Gig

    How?

    Which type of upgrade? Online upgrade (zypper dup) or offline upgrade
    (DVD)? Or fresh install on top of the old one?

    And which version of the nvidia driver did you install?

    Is it actually used/working?

    Please upload /var/log/Xorg.0.log to SUSE Paste and post a link.

    And please install the package "Mesa-demo-x" and post the output of:
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep render

    You _have_ to reinstall the driver after the upgrade of course. Did you do that?

    Hello,

    What did you reformat , / and /home partition?
    /home partion contained the result of your initial upgrade, if you did only / partition as proposed by the system in case of a new install.

    Are you aware that, as the DVD can not contain every package, you still
    need to do certain online operations to complete the offline upgrade?
    Till you do, everything can fail.

    Hi,

    Yup I appreciate the configurations in the home, so I blew away / and home, I run my data in a detach file system one directory deeper than home, so it is easy for me to do.

    Cheers
