    When I have time, I will install the nvidia driver the hard way, but, it will be after the weekend.
    Digging around, I found that the leap 42.2 nvidia repo is up
    HTML Code:
    http://http.download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.2/
    The date however is 13 oct and the kernel is 4.4.22_1-17.1
    I just did a zypper dup and got kernel 4.4.25-4

    I'll wait until nvidia catches up.
    I'll try to remember to check that nouveau is blacklisted.

    That's irrelevant.
    The kernel module is compiled on installation anyway, and even if not, kmp packages create symlinks for all installed kernels.
    FTR, the 42.1 nvidia driver is "for" kernel 4.1.12 (the current one is 4.1.34), and the 13.2 driver is for kernel 3.16.6, while 13.2 switched to 3.16.7 overa a year ago.

    IOW, this is "normal", and the driver should work despite this (unless there is some other problem).
    There's absolutely no point in "waiting until nvidia catches up".

    Hello,

    After zypper up to RC1 yesterday and the upgrade was complete in terms of downloading and installing packages, I got the following message in the Konsole:

    Code:
    Target initialization failed:
    Failed to cache rpm database (1).
    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot for your help.

    Default Speaker Test not working in Gnome?

    Speaker Test on the Gnome Settings Sound panel is not working apparently.
    Seems a wrong or lacking link, since the system test works, e.g.:
    Code:
    speaker-test -Dsurround21:PCH -c 3 -s 2 -t wav
    correctly speaks from the "Front Right" speaker on my laptop (and YES, I have a subwoofer too on this box).
    Anybody else seeing that before I file for a bug?

    Your rpm database seems to be corrupted.

    Try to run:
    Code:
    sudo rpm --rebuilddb

    Made a clean install on this machine but couldn't do much with it as
    the system froze shortly after logging on and reopening my Firefox
    windows and tabs. I suspect the problem is the old one with nouveau.

    System stayed open with a less heavy-duty login session where I tried
    the fix of updating Qt to 5.7 but had no luck due to lack of the
    appropriate 42.2 repos. Tried the factory Qt5 and Framework5 repos but
    ran into insurmountable conflicts with Akonadi.

    Surprised the freeze was so bad as it had been slowly getting better.
    I've replaced the motherboard and processor today to try to fix some
    other problems so will try another install tomorrow to see if the
    apparent worsening of the nouveau problem was also exacerbated by the
    hardware glitches I've been seeing over the past week or so.

    Yes. Or rather it's even worse now with nouveau currently AFAIK.

    But a fix (or rather workaround from the kwin side) is being worked on and will hopefully make it into 42.2 final:

    Hi guys!

    I've installed Leap 42.2 yesterday, and to my biggest surprise, it's quickly became unstable... Krunner is crashing half of the time, akonadi is blocking every time I'm running a PIM application, plasmashell sometimes crashes as well...

    Any idea on how to diagnostic what is going on? From what I see here and there, 42.2 should be much more stable than that right now... (Net Install, so the system was up to date ever since the install)

    Here the output of my journatlctl: http://paste.opensuse.org/45408835
    We can see that akonadi is going crazy, but not sure it's very helpful to see why... Is there a log for Akonadi?

    Please Gnome users, have a look at speaker test, you might help track down bug 1006554.
    It seems HW/config dependent, three shots and three misses on my side but I cannot rule out having missed something obvious... confirmation to one case or the other might be important.

    Hi
    I can confirm, test buttons don't work, openSUSE 42.2 only one audio
    device.

    Have SLED 12 SP2 GMC on the same system, same Shell 3.20.2. It shows
    two audio devices and the test buttons work.
