I installed 11.2 a few days ago and am in the process of configuring everything.
I have a problem with the screen freezing just after login but before the desktop appears. I get a blank plasmoid rectangle (the default Desktop one) on a black screen. It then just sits there for about 5 minutes before continuing to load the desktop. The mouse move fine during this time but there is no response from the keyboard.
I have a GForce 8200 on board graphics card (Asus M3n78 motherboard) and am using the nvidia driver 190.42 from the nVidia repo. I’ve tried desktop effects on and off but it made no difference so I’m not sure it’s video related.
I also seem to experience the odd random screen freeze while going about setting things up. The panel would freeze (i.e. none of the icons, kickoff launcher respond), non of the plasmoids on the desktop respond. But the open windows do respond and can be moved, working in etc.
I’m using KDE 4.3.3. release 2.
I couldn’t see anything in the boot or /var/messages logs that would indicate a problem.
Any ideas on where I should start troubleshooting?
