2 freezes on tumbleweed...

howdy folks !

how to know exactly what happened ?

with firefox, GNOME, plz some hints …

tia !

Hard to say without more info

In general could be a video driver problem.

Is this the newest tumbleweed??

thx !

btw: what is GNOME on Xorg ? (gdm)

no one else ?

Working fine here, by default GNOME is using Wayland if you have gnome-session-wayland installed (GNOME selection in GDM), else it’s GNOME on Xorg (which is what your using).

Check your ~/.xsession* files or ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.* logs.

What graphics card?

/sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA

HI n thx !

# /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep -A3 VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0106] (rev 09)
        Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device [1025:0718]
        Kernel driver in use: i915
        Kernel modules: i915

Fire up YaST → System → Bootloader and in the Kernel Parameters tab in the Optional Kernel Command Line Parameter fied, just after quiet add the followinf, save and reboot and see how it goes;


Got this:

splash=silent quiet showopts

erase showopts ?

Fellows …

need asap flashplugin ( easiest way to install it -i’d prefer YAST- )

as always tia !

sorry 4 botherin

No, between…:wink:

splash=silent quiet i915.semaphores=1 showopts

Ick… just grab the tarball from adobe.com, extract and copy the libflashplayer.so file to /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/

well … I think the freezes is due to a FULL use of ram and cpu at 100 ! with GNOME wayland and gnome on Xorg …

instead with **LXqt :


perhaps to enable some SWAP file ?

need help , do not want to quit this great distro …

I like so much KDE and gnomo, seems impossible to run it on this lappy !

So what processes are using the RAM and CPU (Look under the Process tab).

How much RAM and what is the CPU?

Hi n thx !

let me change DE …

Can you install more RAM in your system, or is it fixed?

So you didn’t create a swap file on install?


sr0     11:0    1  1024M  0 rom  
sda      8:0    0 298.1G  0 disk

└─sda1   8:1    0    50G  0 part /

I have plasma-desktop on other partition and is fast as hell ! on another partition Devuan with just MATE and the same …

I do not use SWAP on my systems !

tia !


see it by yourself !

The plasma-desktop is on Tumbleweed too?

So what is also using the memory can you sort on that?

I don’t see high usage here on AMD hardware 560M of RAM used, everything running normally and using ~10% cpu.

u r NOT runnin **tumbleweed **accordin to this:

openSUSE Leap 42.1 (x86_64) GNOME 3.16.2

so it is different behavior …
