    Default Release candidate 42.1 RC1 -- post your comments

    I have installed 42.1 RC1.

    It mostly looks pretty good. Things that didn't work for Beta1 are now working.

    However, I get a kdeinit5 crash notification whenever I login to Plasma5, though everything seems to work. And I sometimes get a KMix crash notification (I have not tried playing sounds).

    Yes, that's a known problem, and apparently a bug in the pulseaudio upgrade to 0.7.

    Thanks for that. Modifying in /etc/pulse/default.pa to replace the line

    load-module module-native-protocol-unix

    with

    load-module module-native-protocol-unix srbchannel=no

    worked for me, removing the constant plasma5 problem with the kmix/kdeinit crash.

    Default AW: Release candidate 42.1 RC1 -- post your comments

    Yesterday i did a 'zypper dup' with openSUSE 42.1 beta 1. Since then the kdeinit5-problem described by nrickert plus two more problems showed up:


    1. 'nm-applet' did not react to any mouse action
    2. 'hp-devicemanager' showed the "No systemtray" message, although the recommended "sleep=20" work around was in place.


    Just now i tried the fix mentioned by oldcpu and now everything is fine again !

    Thanks oldcpu !

    Best regards

    Hi!

    Updated my old laptop (daily used Hp Compaq 6730B) from Leap42.1 Beta1 KDE yesterday to RC1. It was a mess. Endless problems of kded5, kdeinit5, kmix, kmixcontrol bla bla.. Crashed. No more then to use as a browser based PC.
    The only thing that was working better was that suspend was working whiteout "fan-panic" on start again. Good .


    Tried a fresh KDE instal (openSUSE-Leap-42.1-DVD-x86_64-Build0235-Media.iso) on my main DE, the same story multiplied. Not useable at all. Uack. I hope that not to many newcomers will try that one.

    The problems are in many parts solved by reading post #4 Thanks!

    It still exist problems but not any worst than earlier RC's. I'm optimistic.

    If I have something to add is that I think I have notice that "multitasking" is getting worst. Yes the Lan performance is excellent but it lock up almost all resources. Start a large backup and take a cop of coffee. It also shows in other situations, -it have accelerate trow Leap42.1 versions. That my is own opinion.

    regards

    Plasma 5 seems to be running well with nouveau. This is with a 6150LE graphics card (Nvidia). I'll leave it this way for now, though I will probably install the G02 driver when the final release is out and the Nvidia repo is up.

    Here's what I did:

    1: Boot with "nomodeset".
    2: Login to Plasma 5
    3: Turn off desktop effects. I had to uncheck a whole bunch of them. There does not seem to be a single control as there was with KDE4.
    4: Reboot, this time without "nomodeset", so that I am using nouveau.
    5: Login to Plasma, and finish configuring my desktop.

    I did go to Power settings, and set it to never turn of the graphics. My prior experience with nouveau, is that after it is turned off, the cursor may disappear and not be recoverable until a reboot. I left the dim screen enabled, as that does not cause problems.

    So far, so good.

    There's an option to enable/disable compositing as a whole (including desktop effects) in "Display and Monitor"->"Compositor".
    That's actually the same as the global desktop effects setting in KDE4's "Desktop Effects"->Global.

    Thanks. I'll look for that when I next boot Leap (I just finished shutting down).
