    Unhappy New 13.1 x86 32-bit install KDE Xorg crashes launching apps

    New install of openSuSE 13.1 on x86 32-bit server. Installation went smoothly, and all available updates from the default repositories are installed via Yast online update.

    If I click on the Firefox or OpenOffice icons on the plasma desktop, X crashes every time, blowing me completely back to the graphical desktop login screen.

    This happens on two different motherboard types (one IBM, one Intel) that I have tried it on. Different monitors. Different VGA chips. I see that there were some 32-bit only problems similar to this back in August (pre 13.1 general availability release), but surely these would have been repaired by now in 13.1, wouldn't they? Reference, for example, https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=322283

    This problem, of course, makes migrating to this release impossible in my environment.

    Anybody have any insight on this problem? Known? Being worked on? Nobody cares because it is 32-bit?

    Something like this is caused by a problem with the graphics driver most of the time. It's just coincidence that it happens on 2 systems with different VGA chips I'd say.

    I see that there were some 32-bit only problems similar to this back in August (pre 13.1 general availability release), but surely these would have been repaired by now in 13.1, wouldn't they? Reference, for example, https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=322283
    The bug you reference has been fixed before 13.1 was released.
    And that bug didn't make X crash. It was about just plasma-desktop crashing on login so you ended up with a black screen and mouse cursor.
    Starting plasma-desktop manually (via Alt+F2 f.e.) worked though.

    Anybody have any insight on this problem? Known? Being worked on? Nobody cares because it is 32-bit?
    Neither of this is true I would say. I don't think this is a 32bit specific problem, it seems to be related to the gfx driver, see also your X log.
    mach64 is quite old and not very well maintained anymore.

    I really think this is a bug in the mach64 driver. I causes X to crash.
    "nomodeset" doesn't help in this case, because "mach64" doesn't support KMS anyway.

    As a first step you could try to disable Desktop effects (Alt+Shift+F12). Does it still crash then?
    Or try to uninstall the mach64 driver (package "xf86-video-mach64"). Then a fallback driver should be used which hopefully doesn't crash.

    Another possibility would be to turn off Acceleration (since that's what apparently crashes), by setting this in the Xorg configuration:
    Code:
    Option "noaccel"
    And what graphics chip does the other system have?
    The intel driver shipped with 13.1 has known bugs that can cause such crashes, but they have been fixed already.
    In that case installing all updates should help.

    PS: You could also try to add "x11failsafe" in addition to "nomodeset" to the boot options instead of uninstalling the mach64 driver.

    The "other" system (an Intel SAI2 motherboard) apparently has the same VGA chip as the IBM motherboard from which info in my original post came.

    From the Intel SAI2 system...
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Rage XL PCI (rev 27)
    It, however, has not also been tried with nomodeset.

    Code:
    grep GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT /etc/default/grub
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=" video=1024x768 resume=/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-1AMCC_42208571D81EC700B05A-part2 splash=silent quiet showopts"
    I will try your suggestions as quickly as I can. Things just got really busy here.

    Ah, ok. But you spoke about different VGA chips in your post, so I wasn't sure.

    It, however, has not also been tried with nomodeset.
    To repeat, "nomodeset" alone doesn't change anything when using the mach64 driver.
    You should try to add "x11failsafe" as well.

    Yes, sorry about the initial "different chips" statement. Bad assumption on my part since the boards are from different manufacturers. My access to the SAI2 system is only via remote ssh login and via phone calls to remote colleagues.

    I had already turned off "desktop effects" via "configure desktop -> desktop effects -> uncheck desktop effects at startup" yesterday.

    I added "x11failsafe" to the boot options. This did allow both firefox and openoffice to open without crashing X. Undesired side effects of x11failsafe such as reduced-size or no task bar were also present. So that yielded a pretty good clue.

    Will move on to the other suggestions next, but after a few hours.

    For my next test, I removed x11failsafe from the boot options, and using yast deleted "xf86-video-mach64".

    In this configuration, I was able to start firefox and openoffice without having it crash X. All of the screen graphics looked ok except for the task panel. Three problems with it.
    1) It does not stretch from screen edge to screen edge.
    2) The colors show a lot of gray and white instead of the expected colors. Sort of gray and white stripey.
    3) The menu does not seem on the scale as the mouse. That is, the mouse has to be further right than something desired to be clicked upon.

    If I could fix the problem with the task bar, then this might be a good circumvention.

    I tried deleting the panel and adding a new one, but the replacement had the same problems.

    I saved a screen shot of what I was trying to describe above, but I don't see a way to upload it and do not have a website from which I could provide a link.

    Did you use "nomodeset" or not in this case? If not, try to add it, of yes try to remove it.
    Did you try to disable the desktop effects in that case? Again, you could also try to enable them. And maybe changing the settings on the "Advanced" tab would have effect too (OpenGL vs. XRender, Raster vs. Native).

    Also you could try with a different driver.
    There are those general ones available: modesetting, fbdev, vesa.
    If you specify "nomodeset", either "fbdev" or "vesa" will be used, "modesetting" otherwise.
    IIUYC "fbdev" seems to have a problem with displaying the panel, so try to force your system to use one of the other two, either by removing "nomodeset" again (should cause the "modesetting" driver to be used), or by leaving "nomodeset" specified and uninstalling xf86-video-fbdev (vesa should be used then automatically).

    Upload it to http://susepaste.org or any other image hosting site and post a link.

    You might want to file a bug report for the mach64 driver crash though, since apparently it's easily reproducable.
    Either at http://bugzilla.novell.com/ or (maybe better, as openSUSE doesn't make any changes to the driver) directly upstream at http://bugs.freedesktop.org.
    And don't forget to add the X backtrace to the report.

    I uploaded a screenshot illustrating what I was describing to here: http://susepaste.org/37549727

    The boot for Linux from which it was taken was with "nomodeset" but without "x11failsafe" with the mach64 driver rpm having been deleted. Will gather more per your suggestions.

    With "mach64" having been deleted...
    Turning on or off display effects has no effect on the ugly gray panel.
    Turning on or off "nomodeset" as a boot parameter has no effect on the ugly gray panel.
    I tried all combinations of the "nomodeset" with/without display effects.


    Yast does not want to let me delete the fbdev driver as it seems to be a hard requirement for Xorg.
    Code:
    Problem
      xorg-x11-driver-video-7.6_1-11.1.2.i586 requires xf86-video-fbdev, but this requirement cannot be provided  
    Possible Solutions │  
      [ ] deinstallation of xorg-x11-driver-video-7.6_1-11.1.2.i586   
      [ ]keep xf86-video-fbdev-0.4.3-6.1.2.i586    
      [ ]break xorg-x11-driver-video-7.6_1-11.1.2.i586 by ignoring some of its dependencies
    I elected to not delete it and break things.
