Thread: System hangs

  1. #1

    Default System hangs

    Linux 3.11.10-17-desktop
    openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)
    KDE 4.11.5
    nouveau 11,403,901 NVIDIA Corporation ION VGA

    System hangs randomly, first 30 seconds only bluetooth mouse works, then it also stops. USB keyboard does not work. Hard reboot is only solution.

    What may be the problem and how to diagnose?

    I'd start by viewing available memory.
    I wrote the following how to use the Free tool, notice that most people read the information wrong, you need to understand how much memory is locked up in buffers to get a better view of what is available. Includes a command to clear all buffers so that your memory resources available is almost the same as after a full reboot
    http://en.opensuse.org/User:Tsu2/free_tool

    You should also look at your syslog to view what happened recently.
    So for instance immediately after your system "hang" you could run the following which describes the last 100 lines of system activity
    Code:
    tail -n 100 /var/log/messages
    And, needless to say you should look at your disk activty light. If for some reason something is thrashing your HDD, it can cause your entire system to pause until the disk trhashing stops.

    Can you boot in advanced mode to failsafe?

    I suggest if that works that you install th e NVIDIA propritary driver for that chip set

    I'm happy with nouveau in terms of the performance.

    Huh?

    It did not hang, there are entries after that time.

    And there is a strange "time-going-back" issue...

    Default Re: System hangs

    If the sytem hangs because of the video driver you need to change the video driver. These hangs are almost always do to the video driver in use.

    Default Re: System hangs

    I'm not sure if the system hanged, but the screen and further the mouse cursor stopped. I pressed the power button and nothing happened, then hold power button for 4 secs and switched off the power, then switched on and system booted normally.

    Is there any video driver issues in the log? I have used Nvidia driver previously and it was very slow on my desktop.

    Default Re: System hangs

    if the NVIDIA driver was slow then you did something wrong and you were not actually using the NVIDIA driver or you installed the wrong one for your card. Do you perhaps have a Intel+NVIDIA optimus setup? If so you need bumblebee

    So the propritary NVIDIA driver should work IF you install the right one correctly.
