    Default opensuse leap 42.3 frequently crashes.

    Hi I am Rupesh from India and I have Toshiba satellite c55 b894 laptop and I have installed opensuse leap 42.3 10 days back. first one week it worked fine and from the past 3 days it is not working.

    When I boot into the system and work for 10 minutes and suppose I copy files from USB drive to the home directory first two minutes it shows files are copying and after that when I try to move the mouse it will not move and after that the system displays the login screen ie., gdm and when I login the previous work will disappear like I can't see files copying status etc.,.



    Please suggest how to make work the system properly.
    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    I thought to install only minimal packages on my system. According to you must install KDE desktop which takes upto 2 GB of hard-disk space. During the installation of Linux I created root partition with less space.

    May I know why the system crashes. Upon troubleshooting can we fix the problem. I am ready to provide information about what you ask related to troubleshooting.
    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    I have not had any problem.

    Since you mentioned "gdm", I suppose you are using Gnome. It helps if you give more information.

    I have both KDE and Gnome installed. I use "gdm" to login. I am not seeing any crashes.

    Maybe disable the "lock screen" in Gnome.

    I may or may not be having a similar experience.
    My signature line (desktop, below) is current for the moment but KF5 does change things a lot.

    I am KDE and have found in the past month or so that Plasma5 is infrequently crashing, but leaves currently open windows functional.
    I just can't launch anything new via a GUI launcher because the background goes black.

    My solution is to Alt-Ctl-Backspace to kill the GUI session and return to the Greeter screen and re-login.

    I have been watching for others who may be experiencing this, I frankly am unsure what diagnostics to add to a post on the topic.

    It is possibly a graphics card issue. I has similar experience on my older box with nvidia graphics. (I can't check anymore as that box has been shipped off to the recycling center).

    Configure Desktop --> Display and Monitor --> Compositor

    The switch "Rendering background" to "XRender". See if that helps.

    Rupesh, you should take a look at the issue nrickert points out.
    I am using 'standard' AMD graphics board and the Open Source radeon driver, usually as well behaved as it gets.

    Laptops frequently have challenging video hardware.

    What brand hardware (NnVidia, AMD,Intel,...) and what driver do you have running?

    Leap 42.3 Plasma 5 has been reasonably stable here for the past month or so -- apart from a couple of "PIM" and "Info Center" segment faults which I've reported to the KDE folks. Things like Digikam execute flawlessly …

    May I suggest that we first try to be sure about e=what the OP (rupesh) is using. He says he has only "minimal install", not KDE. Please Rupesh explain better what you use (for me minimal is no GUI at all, but you may mean minimal X).

    And to the others, please do not come with solutions for environments the OP may not have. That is confusing IMHO.

    I have installed opensuse leap with gnome and x Windows system. I have not installed any other graphics driver version other than provided by opensuse installation media. My laptop is Toshiba satellite c55 b894 and it has amd radeon graphics. Previously I have made some changes regarding lock screen and I think this may be causing problems.
    Regards,
    Rupesh.
