I’d probably be better equipped to help you if I had ever had a problem with this myself, but I haven’t.
I think if it were me, I’d probably do a parallel install (assuming you have the room to do it) and try and pin something down.
I mean, like: Install > Check the driver etc > then do a full update > see what happens. Try and try again.
I have used suse since 9.1 . I have already setup space for second install.
I always had two installs one for daily use and other to try different distros.
OK I will go ahead and install second 11.4 and see how it goes
You mean to say it's loading the graphics controller driver (i915) when you connect a different monitor.
That doesn't make sense to me
Yes it was unexpected result, other problem was that I had to adjust v/h sync values in monitor.conf file.
I prefer my lcd monitor so I will start second install shortly.
I will report back from new 11.4
I am having the same problem. I am suspecting some sort of hardware conflict. I did an upgrade on my Dell Laptop with no issues. I attempted to do an update. After changing all my repositories from 11.3 to 11.4, I did a zypper dup (I think that is what I was told to do). After awhile it wanted to reboot, or restart reinstalled apps. On reboot, it would not come up. I did an install of the Nvidia driver and it came up. Lots of things were broken, but after reinstalling Tv-Viewer, a reboot and now it locks up as soon as the green splash screen comes up. Even if I hit esc immediately, it is already hard locked. I rebooted into the DVD and did a memory test. It is fine. I tried a hardware check and it locks. Everything I try now with the DVD is locked up. Thinking it may be a bad disc, I went back to the 11.3 disk and it is doing the same thing.
So it seems like hardware. Any ideas where to start?
The last lines in the /var/log/warn file are:
May 15 09:17:51 tigger nmbd: write_browse_list: Can’t open file /var/lib/samba/browse.dat… Error was Permission denied

May 15 09:17:51 tigger nmbd: Got SIGTERM: going down…
May 15 09:17:51 tigger rpcbind: rpcbind terminating on signal. Restart with “rpcbind -w”
After the update you need to re-install the nvidia drivers did you do that? Download it from Nvidia and save it. Go to a bash prompt, init 3, then from where the file is, “sh NVIDIA.FILE” and it will reinstall. REboot, and I think that may do what you need. Hope so.

Lets hope it's OK after that
No had to boot with nomodeset, upgrade included about 160 files including kernel.
I tried restore from backup and after that I could not to boot anything.
This is a new install again.
