I have upgraded my Suse 11.3 KDE installation from KDE 4.4.4 to KDE 4.6.
But after this upgrade, the screen has become black and above this black screen are more than 100 windows of “KDE Crash Handler”.
Presently I am writing this post through Win 7 partition.
Please help me save the Suse installation as I have lot of data stored on Suse partition.
Thanks in advance.
Can you please explain how to do this.
Whenever I switch on my computer, I get the option of logging in Suse, fail safe Suse and windows.
Entering in Failsafe mode gives some “terminal” type screen… I got into that but didn’t know how to get out of this. So had to unplug the power swich.
Please explain the way how to rename ~/.kde4
That should tell us if you are using the closed source driver and if you are what version. If you are running the 260.x driver then the problem may be able to be fixed by downgrading the NVIDIA driver to 256.53.
Presently I am saving my data on Suse partition through Ubuntu Live CD. I tried this process with Suse Live CD, but that forbid me to access the Suse files. Please let me save my data with this Live CD. i will post the output of nvidia driver after saving the data.
Thanks once again.
Just now i witnessed one more strange thing:
I rebooted into Suse normal mode. Got the same black screen and over it the KDE Crash Handler windows (>100 in number) and continuously increasing. in one of these windows, I clicked “Report Bug”. this opened another window and lots of info was written on it along with a blue colored net link. Where I clicked and opened the Konqueror window.
Through this Konqueror I was able to open Suse website, but was not able to log in since Crash Handler windows kept on popping up and prevented me from typing anything.
I feel, if there was a Graphic card problem, I should not have been able to see even this Konqueror or KDE Crash handler window. (I may be wrong in assuming so)
anyway i have saved my data now. What should I do now.? (Thanks once again)
I meant of cource, that you boot your normal openSuSE install on your harddrive. And not boot a live CD. (It is just that an install that was made with a KDE Live CD includes the IceWM. So that if you installed from a live CD you should have IceWM available.)
