after updating with updater recommendation to Kernel 22.214.171.124-3 (and some X updates) I have problems loading to KDE4. before it worked perfect but now it stops loading and shows logon and password. I do not know what to do or how to fix it. Please help me because I need my Laptop to work with. Thanks in advance.
do you have ati/nvidia drivers installed ? if so, sometimes a kernel update can cause things to go pear-shaped. try re-installing the drivers
I have a mobile intel 965 chipset. When starting typing startx comes
type1 (module does not exist)
dri2 (module does not exist)
usr/lib64/xorg/modules//drives/intel_drv.so undefindes symbol
failed to load /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//drivers/intel_drv.so
failed to load intel (load failed, 7)
failed to load synpatics (load failed, 7)
trying sax -r
What can I do?
not having an intel gfx card, i can only recommend re-installing the driver. you can start the ncurses version of YaST for that.use the tab,space-bar & arrow keys to navigate
Do not know how to get yast. I only get the black screen and can type logon and password. Is there a repository or sth I could input to load the driver from internet? What do I have to input?
once logged in, type su & press enter,it will ask for a password, type in root’s password & press enter. back at the command prompt, type in yast & press enter, then navigate as i stated above
First, let’s check your kernel version. At the command line do:
Are you quite sure that it isn’t 126.96.36.199-0.2?
The error messages indicate problems with the X drivers. From the command line as root do:
zypper install -f xorg-X11-driver-video
That will force reinstallation of the drivers to the set that match the kernel.
