    Unhappy Konsole,Yast,etc. apps/ tools not opening,whereas Terminal is working and most of openSUSE is O.K

    Hello everyone,
    I joined the Forum today.
    I had installed openSUSE-42.3(Leap) 64-bit successfully onto my DELL 14 Inspiron 5447 Laptop with ease.
    It was performing and functioning amazing,till yesterday.

    But due to some of my "noobish" attitude as I tinkered within the Yast2 the software access level,some issues and problems have cropped up.

    Konsole Terminal is not starting by clicking it.

    The worst of all is that Yast2 is not opening even after providing the correct root/superuser password.

    But Terminal is working fine,and here is what it shows :--->
    linux-n5q8:/home/kg17Taban # yast2

    amdgpu_device_initialize: DRM version is 1.6.0 but this driver is only compatible with 3.x.x.
    /sbin/yast2: line 447: 7054 Segmentation fault (core dumped) $y2ccbin $Y2UI_ARGS "$@"


    linux-n5q8:/home/kg17Taban #




    I am inside MATE desktop of openSUSE-42.3(Leap) 64-bit.

    Please Help me Friends.

    What did you do, exactly? Judging by the error message, it's either loading the wrong module (radeon vs amdgpu) or the libdrm is broken.

    Actually, I installed the "amdgpu-pro",and after that issues started.

    I can open Amarok,listen to songs, but can't open SMplayer,VLC,Cheese,etc. apps!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How do I uninstall amdgpu-pro from the system?
    AS YAST2 IS NOT OPENING.

    I mean how to enter the software management???

    Where did you install it from?

    If you used the AMD installer, it should include an uninstaller as well. Seriously, you should not install random drivers from random sources.

    You can use zypper from the command line, as root or with sudo, to install / uninstall software.

    Actually I installed from
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:AMDGPU-PRO
    Thinking that my laptop's AMD R7 M265 GPU will function properly.

    Since you can open a terminal window, type this;
    sudo zypper rm amdgpu-pro

    It'll ask for your root password, then follow instructions to uninstall the driver - I'm guessing the package name is amdgpu-pro. May require a reboot afterwards.

    I did it before your latest/present comment as precisely advised by you.
    But problem still persists.

    Since I don't have an AMD GPU, I had to take a peek at the docs; http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-arti...ed-System.aspx

    It refers to using the AMD uninstaller, I'm guessing it makes changes such as blacklisting the radeon module or possibly modifying initrd. You should follow the instructions on that page under the uninstalling the amd gpu driver.

    I don't know if the SDB is missing something, in any case compared to the AMD documentation the SDB is missing a perhaps important step checking to make sure required dependencies exist. Also, unlike the SDB the AMD documentation just installs directly instead of setting up a local repo.

    A link in the SDB points to the AMD Pro Driver Release Notes which includes links for the driver download
    https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/s...-458935.tar.xz
    And instructions for installing on SLES/SLED
    http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-arti...ed-System.aspx

    You might be able to determine that you're missing a dependency even after your install by running the following in an elevated console (you probably have to be in your repository's root directory). Use xterm if konsole isn't working.
    Code:
    amdgpu-pro-preinstall.sh --check
    If uninstalling doesn't work, then you might inspect the contents of the "amdgpu-pro" package and try to manually remove with YMMV results, Ask if you want to do this and need help. instead I recommend you first disable the AMD repo you created and use your openSUSE DVD to "upgrade" to try to repair your system.

    Or, consider that your system is brand new.
    Sometimes when a system is brand new, there are few if any settings and files that are worth saving (or a small number of files which can be transferred elsewhere), it's simpler and better in the long run to just wipe clean and re-install to make sure no "junk" is left in your system.

    As for the SDB you referenced, that's brand new and I don't know has ever been discussed before so I don't know what to make of it. Since I personally don't use or manage any systems with an ATI GPU currently, I can't evaluate how accurate or complete the information is in it... But if you think you really read everything in detail and determined these drivers <should> have worked, I think you should post a note on the SDB that it didn't work for you, details about your hardware and a link to this Forum thread. In any case, I have a strong misgiving that the AMD documentation describes how to test your system before installing and the SDB does not mention this.

    I've uninstalled amdgpu-pro from my system successfully.
    Though,dependencies are there which might pose a problem.

    What command to use for uninstalling the dependencies?
