Plasma Desktop Crashes after Update


I’m running SUSE 11.3 32-bit and have run into an issue with the KDE Plasma Desktop crashing after login. I’ve submitted a bug report with the KDE folks, but thought it might be OpenSuSE specific. Details from the my KDE bug report ( is as follows:

Application: plasma-desktop (0.3)
KDE Platform Version: 4.5.2 (KDE 4.5.2)
Qt Version: 4.7.0
Operating System: Linux i686
Distribution: “openSUSE 11.3 (i586)”

– Information about the crash:

  • What I was doing when the application crashed:

After updating my OpenSUSE 11.3 32-bit workstation to the latest (as of October
22, 4pm EST) available here:

Index of /repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Factory/openSUSE_11.3

The Plasma desktop crashes right after I log in. The desktop nor the taskbar
displays, the crash happens immediately, regardless of the user account I try.
I tried renaming the “.kde4” directory and logging in…but the crash still

The crash can be reproduced every time.

The Backtrace is available in the above posted bug report #255005. Has anyone else run into this same issue or can someone help resolve this?



Did you update the nVidia driver?
I understand there is a bug in kde factory connected to this latest driver
