Thread: After tumbleweed update x11 is not starting...

    Default After tumbleweed update x11 is not starting...

    Hi all,

    After a hefty update (2750) packages the system is not loading x11 and seems to hang.

    Not very good after hours of updates !

    I run tumbleweed 32 bit on an ancient msi netbook connected to an external monitor. The updates sometimes are a nightmare, but until now I was allways able to boot into gui. This time not so !

    Studying the x11 log the driver failed to load with an unknown symbol error!

    I'm an it guy so I can figure this out, but how are ordinary peeps supposed to tacle this...

    I reverted to an earlier snapshot as the system had become totally FUbar and updated the xfce packages through yast. It now seems to have returned to a stable state. Will hold off updating the 2500 packages until I feel more confident. Looks like the update is updating the x11 drivers, but they don't load WTF !

    Any other people here having trouble after installing the TW updates ?
