Thread: KDE desktop black after kernel update

  1. #1

    Default KDE desktop black after kernel update

    Plasma 5.5.5, kernel 4.1.27-24

    After the last TWO kernel updates, when I restart the first time, KDE gives a black screen with only a mouse pointer.
    alt-F2 does not respond.

    My solution is to toggle into tty1 and do shutdown -r to reboot. KDE then starts correctly.

    Why is the black screen happening after a kernel update?

    Thanks, Jon

    I get the same - although am using tumbleweed, plasma 5.7.1 & a nvidia graphic card. I have to uninstall the nvidia driver and then install it again.

    Happen here as well this morning, using Leap42.1 (kernel kernel 4.1.27-Xn?) KDE and Radeon HD6550D using fglrx driver. I tried to reboot a couple of times it has helped before. altl+F2 did work and I was able to get konsole mode.

    I The easiest way I thought was to roll back to a earlier snapshot, I didn’t remember how to do that(rarely have used it before) so I started a older kernel (4.1.26-default) and viola!

    Regards

    Leap 42.1-x64, Plasma 5.7.1, kernel 4.1.27-24

    I can login with KDM to start Plasma 5 session but i only get the background image and nothing more. So i use the console mode to start init 3 and init 5 to go back to KDM screen and select another display manager like Enlightenment.
    Other DMs seem working except Plasma 5 with the black screen.

    I've also seen another errors with a few libraries like
    libqt5core5-32bit where Yast cant find a dependency : libdouble-conversion.so.1 is missing. But it's already installed. Maybe it's linked to the Plasma 5 screen error

    Regards

    I've been having the same problem with tumbleweed today. I checked /usr/lib64/libGL.so and it was symlinked to libGL.so.1.2.0. I changed the link to libGL.so.1.0.0 (libGl.so.1 was also linked to libGL.so.1.2.0) and now it works. It could go wrong again with an update but it's working for now.

    Default Re: KDE desktop black after kernel update

    now, after a little update, I have this error: "can't start D-Bus. Can you call qdbus-qt5".
    Sometimes, I believe that packages are not fully tested before releasing.
