    Yeah ... I'm not sure how I ended up with two names. Sorry -- I was trying to use the longer one, but slipped up somehow.

    Well, thanks for the suggestion. That was no help at all. The graphic interface wouldn't start up at all with that file in there. It was weird -- the boot up screen started alternating with a bunch of error messages, and the two sessions just switched back and forth until I shut the computer off. At least it was fairly easy to remove. And I'm getting experience booting the system in "recovery mode".

    For now I've gone back to the previous version of the kernel (4.14.5-1-default). I'll see how that works for me.

    if you'd read right after that I said your gfx has no acceleration at all and don't do that but disable compositing try openbox-kde and maybe a different mouse
    if the old kernel works then it's a kernel issue and open a bugreport so it gets fixed as you can't stay on an old kernel on TW

    Well, thanks to everyone for the helpful suggestions. I was still having a lot of trouble, so I finally decided it's time to retire my old box. I'm composing this on my "new" machine -- I bought a brand new Windows 10 machine for my wife (who is not a big Linux fan), and installed Tumbleweed on her old box. Everything seems to be running much better now, although I am having some trouble moving my old e-mail files to this machine. I'll start a new thread to talk about that.

    Happy New Year!
