KDE 4.1.4 freezes all the time


Hello,
I have Fedora 10 installed with KDE 4.1.4.
It keeps freezing all the time. The only option left is to turn off the machine by holding down the power button.

Does anyone else face the same issue?
Is there any workaround for this?

Thanks in advance...

Cool You are not alone

It seems lots of people are having this issue, myself included. Try turning off desktop effects. If that doesn't help, edit your grub.conf file and add the nomodeset kernel option. If that doesn't work, try XFCE4 or gnome instead of KDE.

Good Luck

I have disabled the desktop effects as it was even worse then.
I will try by setting the kernel option

You do not tell with Fedora 10 version you use 32 bits version or 64 bits version ?
Neither did you tell use you hardware spec.
All tough KDE and Gnome is running without a problem I prefer to use LXDE

Not hardware dependent

I have been scouring various forums about this problems for a while. It seems to happen on a wide variety of hardware.

I didn't have any problems until I upgraded to the latest kernel-2.6.27.12-170.2.5.fc10. This caused the words on a page to looked "wrinkled", or simply suffering a lockup or freeze (using kde-4.1). To prevent this I had to uninstall the nvidia drivers (kmod-nvidia from rpmfusion). I will try to use the previous kernel-2.6.27.9-159.fc10 with the nvidia drivers to see what happens.

If it works as you know Fedora standard keeps 3 kernels.
If you wish you can keep more.
See cd/etc/ yum.conf line install_only=3
