In order to install ANSYS I had to remove Fedora and increase partition size of openSUSE root as ANSYS required 21 GB of space while setup was only 6.5 GB. Didn’t know that .tgz has so large compression ratio.
To increase the partition size I booted into openSUSE 13.1-kde-live. In gparted I deleted fedora root partition (which was next to openSUSE root) and resized openSUSE root by right clicking on openSUSE root partition and selecting resize. Then I rebooted into installed openSUSE 13.2 (which was installed earlier)
Success! I’m able to boot into all the DEs installed - KDE, MATE, xfce4, enlightenment, GNOME (came free with xfce4 and MATE)
But, after booting into KDE after few minutes the system freezes. Sometimes, graphics freezes, mouse pointer also freezes, Alt+F2 doesn’t work. Ultimately I logout by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del twice and boot into other DE.
How do I solve this problem
How do I check integrity of my root partition which is having ext4 filesystem (I didn’t want to break my head on btrfs)
PS - I’ll get scolding for this, “I didn’t do backup of root before resizing it!”
Also I’m using KDE5
No I’ve not generated new account. I’m logging into same user/admin account. I just resized root partition from a openSUSE-13.1-kde live usb and then boot into previously installed openSUSE system that is 13.1, logging into same user account.
You misunderstood. It was being strongly suggested that you create a new user account and see if the problem is still there.
The reason for this is to test whether there is a problem with system configuration (would also affect a new user), or with your own user configuration and cached information (would not affect a new user).
If I had that problem with KDE4, I would remove “/var/tmp/kdecache-$USER”. I would do that while not logged into KDE (maybe using a console login or an Icewm login). Then I would log back into KDE and let it rebuild its cache. That fixes some problems due to cached data. If that failed, I might remove $HOME/.kde4 and start all over with a new KDE configuration
I don’t know where KDE5 keeps its configuration and cached data. So I can’t be very helpful at this stage, other than to suggest the general idea.
The config is in ~/.config/, and the cached data is in ~/.cache/.
So I’d suggest trying to remove ~/.cache/ first.
If that doesn’t help, rename ~/.config/, but this will affect other non-KDE5 stuff as well like GNOME, vlc, and libreoffice.
You could move stuff back one-by-one afterwards, or just remove the KDE5 stuff manually with a filemanager. powermanagementprofilesrc or kwinrc would be the most obvious candidates I suppose.
