It has been about a month since I installed openSUSE 11.3 (64bit, Gnome), and overall it is better than 11.2, but I have had some stability issues that I did not have with 11.2.
openSUSE 11.3 crashes very often when I change desktop background. I haven’t experiment with it but it happens with downloaded images.
Changing monitor environment makes openSUSE to freeze. Fresh boot with external monitors connected usually works, but plugging & unplugging monitors usually makes openSUSE freezing. (I have to force power down)
Suspend makes openSUSE freeze a lot. Usually one suspension works, if I re-suspend it, it usually freezes.
I was wondering if these are common with 11.3 or I’m the only one who is having this.
I have the same problem, with the new kernel.Linux 188.8.131.52-1-desktop x86_64 (Dell E6400)
This issue has been adressed in https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=615649
and is now considered as solved. I installed the last version of the kernel, and did not notice any improvement, as I had two freezes this afternoon.
May be this case must be reopened ?
Oh, thank you very much for the link. I followed your link, and saw Comment 40. I did not do the exactly same thing, but I added the X11 repo, and updated Mesa, libdrm (and 32bit stuff), xorg-x11-driver-video, and xorg-x11-driver-video-intel-legacy.
I did not change my setting to use the legacy so maybe updating the last one did not matter. Anyway, I rebooted my machine and tried changing the background many times, and it did not crash. The previous system would have crashed. I have to try other stuff in order to be sure, but I think it might have solved my problem.
