I’m having a weird issue with openSuse 11.0 KDE4 version.
Sometimes, when I logout, I don’t get the cute login screen (kudos for openSuse artists, BTW), but a black screen. Then, nothing works: Ctrl+Alt+(Backslash/F3/F4/F5…) I just hang there and force-power-off my laptop.
I installed the ATI drivers from openSuse repo and got 3D acceleration enabled, but I can’t say if that behaviour is from that moment on or if it happened before. Is this driver related? Is it happening to someone else?
Thanks a bunch,
EDIT: BTW, this also happens when I restart X by Ctrl+Alt+Backslash, but not always.
same problem after installing ATI drivers on my Acer Travelmate 4000. Before installing I could logout and switch to another user.
The same, black screen, also happens if I suspend to RAM and sometimes if I do a suspend to disk (Hibernate). However the latter is not consequent, maybe caused if I suspend to disk for a second time.
for ATI driver OpenSuse.org suggests that “sudo aticonfig --initial” is not necessary for Suse 11, but in my case I had to use this before I could run the program “ATI graphics adapter settings”. And I must say it’s the first time, since v 10.0, that I can install the ATI driver on my Laptop and run 3D.
If I open Configure Kdesktop I get the error “Your X server is using the RandR extension at version 1.2 or greater which doesn’t have any configuration yet”
I’m not that experienced, but it could be that the black screen is a result of conflicts. Apparently the general driver is still active.
I could use some help. Apart from all other improvements, e.g. a smooth upgrade from 10.3 to 11.0 (10.2 → 10.3 was a disaster), a major step forward is that the powersave at last recognizes my smart Battery, so I definitely want to stay with suse
Same graphic card here; it looks like NVidia driver does something do kdm so after logout kdm cannot start X and goes to timeout. Crtl+alt+del would probably work after 30 or so seconds when you try to logout. At least the system can shut down gracefully.
I uninstalled NVidia drivers and now it works fine, but kind of slow.
