    So if you run the following command, this will show them all;

    Code:
    /sbin/modinfo radeon |grep "parm:"
    Then run the following to see what is set;

    Code:
    zypper in sysfsutils
    systool -vm radeon
    Then it's down to researching the options to see what they can be set to....

    Hi
    So AFAIK your card is neither SI or CIK, if so I would disable those two options, in your output they show a '1' (enabled) in the systool output, refer back to parm output for the options.

    So in the grub boot options add;

    Code:
    radeon.si_support=0 radeon.cik_support=0
    Reboot, check the systool output to make sure it changed, see how that goes...

    Hi again! I don't have the slightest idea what SI or CIK could mean, but I added these parameters to the kernel line in Yast and rebooted. Both are "0" now in the output of systool -vm radeon. Wait'nsee ;-) Many thanks so far...
    Kind regards

    ....no crashes here anymore! Many thanks again! :-)

    Will the kernel parameters survive all TW zypper dups or do I have to have an eye on these lines in YasT?
    Kind regards

    Hi
    No, they will survive reboots/updates fine, I doubt those parameters will be deprecated in the near future...

    Sorry to be back, but... I started a VLC player and watched an http stream for about 1 minute then the screen went black and looked like trying to restart over and over again. Not even REISUB was able to revive.

    On reboot the login screen looked like on LSD, everything quite surreal and no login possible. OK, I thought, now this time the hardware is over. But booting to Win 7 (dual boot system) works perfectly (besides the first boot, which resulted in a persistent black screen (backlight on) before the login screen. But the second boot is now absolutely stable for 30 min or so. Strange.

    Problems started with 4.20 kernel iirc and the notebook sitting there and doing nothing while turned for some days...
    Kind regards
