Angry SUSE 10.3 freezes


Hi,

Last few days I have been confronted with a weird behavior of my SUSE 10.3 system. Several time a day all of the sudden it freezes. Then I have to reboot and it goes on for some time. I do not know what the reason is. There were several automatic updates last days ??

Does the keyboard work then? The mouse? The disks? Do any related messages appear in the system log (/var/log/messages)?

Try disabling any compiz 3D effects. What graphics card do you use? Does the system log (/var/log/messages) contain anything related right before the crash? Do any LEDs on the keyboard blink?

Hi,

My graphic card is Radeon 9600 and Yes, 3D is enabled. In /var/log/message there is nothing. No LED is blinking, mouse cursor stops , gkrellm is like a photo - nothing is moving. I will follow your advice and will disable 3D. Will report back if there will be any improvement.

Thanks for your help.

I was having a similar problem with 10.2 and an Nvidia graphics card - the driver that came default was glitchy, and my system would lock hardcore within five minutes (usually within a minute or two) of booting, non-fail.

I was able to correct this by downloading a driver direct from Nvidia - there may be a similar option from ATI.

Hi, there is another post, on page one, about system freezes. I am having the same problem. Mine is not a 3D card (SuSE automatically disabled 3D software). Colin

trying all advises I found here and on the web, but all in vain. My comp freezes randomly-when I am surfing the web or just doing nothing. I disabled ACPI in my bios but only to stop booting into SUSE. Yes, it stops right before entering into terminal window. Has somebody find a real working solution for that or is this the bug in suse 10.3??

Check your memory with memtest and try a liveCD to see whether the cause is a hardware problem. If it isn't, file a bug report at novell bugzilla.

Hi riba43. I gave up. I put APM back to "enabled" and PNP Aware (Plug and Play) to "no" and installed 10.3 as "new" over top of my old system and haven't had a crash since. My conclusion is that the "upgrade" failed to configure properly. Colin
