I have a bunch of weird random issues making my system very difficult to use. The last time I used this machine was on 4/29 when I also installed available updates.
I am experiencing the following problems:
- Plasma slower than usual to start… The progress bar shows up for a long time, and then I see the desktop without widgets for quite a long time before they appear. I tried enabling the KDE logs but it’s so noisy I can’t really tell if any of it is relevant to this issue. I do see lots of “QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow)” errors though.
- Dolphin takes a very long time to open
- Yast GUI gets stuck on Detecting Network Devices if I open Network Settings. The last line in the y2log is:
[Ruby] modules/Linuxrc.rb:55 Reading install.inf, but file doesn’t exist!!!"
Hardware Information from Yast hangs at “0% - fingerprint”. Last line in y2log is:
[Interpreter] clients/hwinfo.rb:210 SCR::Dir() failed
Firefox freezes randomly but also every single time I open http://www.opensuse.org/searchPage, though this works fine in Chromium. Tried clearing history and cache without luck.
I can’t soft shutdown or reboot - plasma closes but the system freezes at the login prompt
I checked /var/log/boot.log and the only sort of failure I see is “Network Manager is not active: Dependency failed for Network Manager Wait Online”, but after that it appears to fire up some network related services called wicked succesfully.
I tried enabling the KDE logs but it’s so noisy I can’t really tell if any of it is relevant to this issue. I do see lots of “QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow)” errors though.
The only thing that stands out at me as a possible issue from my update history is that aaa_base and aaa_base-extras were updated which both seem to contain a wide variety of config file changes.
I don’t really know what to do next to debug this stuff… Any help is appreciated!
