Thread: done apper upgrade to kernel 13.4 but sytem unstable now

    Default done apper upgrade to kernel 13.4 but sytem unstable now

    Hi all, relitively new to all this. i recently did the apper upgrade to kernel.desktop (13.4) i think.
    Now at boot i have 8 options in advanced grub (13.1,13.2,13.3,13.4)
    any of these i chose with the excetpion of the second 13.4 logs into the desktop, but is low-res and hangs whenever i run an application. if i do nothing the system will wait until i open something to crash.
    If i open the first option 13.4 - it logs me in to a command line wanting login.
    Im not great with the command line stuff and wonder if there is a fix before i wipe and start again
    Happy to provide any info i can.

    Hello!

    To identify current running kernel and system, type these two commands into the terminal (one at a time):
    Code:
    uname -a
    cat /etc/os-release
    You could also provide info on the repo list:
    Code:
    zypper -lr
    Your system seems a bit untidy, but if your unfamiliar with openSUSE you've probably a bit confused with what is what and where ...

    Are there eight openSUSE entry options in the standard (not advanced) boot menu? And, are they all related to the same openSUSE installation?
    OpenSuSE 13.1, KDE 4.11.5, 64bit

    Ok. I have finally gotten to boot into a command prompt.
    the 6 (not 8, sorry) other installs are under advanced boot options. and are as follows
    opensuse 13.1 with linux 3.14
    opensuse 13.1 with linux 3.14
    opensuse 13.1 with linux 3.13
    opensuse 13.1 with linux 3.13
    opensuse 13.1 with linux 3.11
    opensuse 13.1 with linux 3.11
    On the main screen i get:
    Opensus 13.1
    advanced boot options

    Ran uname -a got:
    linux linux-h1lz 3011.6.-4-desktop # SMP PREEMPT <date and time> (e6d4a27) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Ran cat etc/os-release got:
    NAME=openSUSE
    VERSION="13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)"
    VERSION_ID="13.1"
    PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)"
    ID=opensuse
    ANSI_COLOR="0,32"
    CPE_NAME="cpe:/o/pensusepensuse:13.1"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.opensuse.org"
    HOME_URL=""https://opensuse.org"
    ID_LIKE="suse"

    Ran zypper -lr got:
    "unknown option 'l'"

    Hope this helps. I have always used apper to update and just updated as the updates pinged me in the task notifier.
    I might not be great at this, but im thinking that there are 3 (6?) distros fighting here? and the x86_64 - does that mean i'm running the 32 bit distro on a 64 bit machine? did i balls up the orginal install (which has been stable for 5 months?)

    Thanks heaps for your help.

    zypper lr - 'list repositories'

    I am off now but someone else may jump in and assist you. The one obvious thing I see might be a problem is that you have installed, at one point at least, an unofficial kernel version 3.14.x, that might mess with your graphics if you used the official NVIDIA driver from any of the OBS repos. However, which kernel that ran when you passed the 'uname -a' command from was a bit unclear, was it 3.11.6-4-desktop?

    Ok, run this command in a terminal:

    Code:
    zypper lr --details
    and paste it all here, from initial command prompt, to last command
    prompt, in a single mouse sweep, and please do so inside code tags (the
    '#' button in the forum editor).

    I cant. the machine is non-useable execpt on command line, so not running browser. if you can give the the switch on zypper to pause the output at the end of a page, ill type it out, but i only get the last few repositories as it scrolls past the screen.

    Cheers
