I just checked and installed the updates available today as of 1pm CST for tumbleweed running kde and found the following. I have a laptop with a external monitor, the laptop is the primary screen and marked as such in the display config. Everything has been fine until today's update, upon a reboot the desktop would not boot correctly. The spinning icon when suse boots was stuck kinda between the two screens when it's usually on the laptop screen. After things booted neither screen was usable as the extended screen showed a piece of the lock screen while it's not locked and a piece of the normal background. The laptop screen or primary screen showed some of it's normal background but not all of it as some of it was on the extended screen. The kde menu bar / launcher ..whatever was not on either screen. I rolled back to a snapshot for now but wanted to report this and see if others have this issue. While I'm running a nvidia card with the nvidia drivers I don't think this is a issue as I have the driver and the kernel pinned since I'm waiting on the new nvidia drivers to support the new kernel that dropped a few weeks ago. I've updated several times since then with zero issue. There is a error on booting before the suse splash screen that says something like error on installing kernel variables or something...there's a post on this from somebody else but I've not seen anybody report the issue I'm having. Thanks guys. I think it's a issue with kde....
