Thread: Stability issues

  1. #1

    Default Stability issues

    I have installed Leap 42.2 and I get random freezing.

    This never happened in 13.2

    What's going on?

    what graphic card and driver do you have
    some integrated intel need uxa acceleration
    so if you use an intel chip in
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
    set (create the file if it does not exist)
    Code:
        Section "Device"
            Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
            Driver      "intel"
            Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
        EndSection
    if you have an nvidia chip, nouveau does not work well with plasma 5 use nvidia's propitiatory driver
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_d...NVIDIA_drivers
    if that's an optimus laptop use bumblebee with nvidia (not nouveau) and the intel acceleration fix
    (I'm not sure about this but if uxa is needed on intel only chips it should be needed on hybrid systems too)

    Could well be graphics related I guess. Overheating can be another cause. Some questions.... Laptop/desktop? Model? Which desktop environment are you using? When the freezing occurs what steps do you need to undertake to recover? (eg reboot, restart X-server?) Or perhaps the recovery occurs by itself?

    If graphics-related, this information might be useful...
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/hwinfo --gfxcard
    System memory...
    Code:
    free

    Freezing in what sense? Does the whole system freeze or just the graphical stack? Please, do provide additional details about your installation and hardware so that we can come up with something .

    EDIT: Got ninja'd by deano_ferrari. Apologies!

    this is a known issue, happened to me (I have a 240 too), the fix is to install the G03 nvidia drivers
    Code:
    zypper ar -f ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.2/ nvidia
    zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG03

    plasma 5 has issues with noveau it's in the release notes
    https://doc.opensuse.org/release-not...ec.123.nouveau
    and the bugs
    https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1005323
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91632

    13.2 still used kdesc 4 but plasma 5 froze on 13.2 too when used with noveau (I had the same freeze with plasma 5 on 13.2)

    I get the following error:

    Problem: nothing provides ksym(default:__fentry__) = bdfb6dbb needed by nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-default-340.101_k4.4.27_2-5.1.x86_64
    Solution 1: do not install x11-video-nvidiaG03-340.101-5.1.x86_64
    Solution 2: break nvidia-gfxG03-kmp-default-340.101_k4.4.27_2-5.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies
