OpenSUSE Hardware :: Yesrterday's Kernel Upgrade Screws Up Graphics?

Mar 23, 2010

I'm used to kernel updates screwing up both my graphics drivers and my instaltion of parallels. These things break each and every time the kernel is updated. Normally, reinstalling makes the problem go away and I move on. Yesterday, Parallels got screwed and I fixed it by reinstalling but the graphic driver is yet to work.

For reference I am using OpenSUSE 11.2 64-Bit Gnome-Edition with an ATI Radeon 4650, since it probably makes a difference. For some reason the driver from the repo (ATI's repo) would not install and I got errors saying that it has a wrong signature and (ignoring that) I got another error saying it was corrupted. So I could not install as usual.

Instead I went at ATI's site and downloaded the latest driver. It installed but I lost the mouse cursor so I reinstalled the previous version which also installed but it not working properly, although I do have a mouse cursor.

glxinfo gives the following error:
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 136 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 24
Current serial number in output stream: 24

fglrxinfo outputs the exact same thing. OpenGL is not working in any way. Even the gears demo and desktop effects (which I tried to reactivate just to test, since I hate those things) simply do not work.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Upgrade Screws Graphics

Jul 8, 2010

Thats it in a nutshell. and I don't mean the boot splash graphics, I mean desktop graphics! As in upon boot ubuntu goes in "low-graphics" mode. I have had this issue all the time with Lucid and never really found a good fix. With Karmic this was never an issue.As a final fix I tried to reinstall lucid and updated the live CD doing that too. First it worked fine, but after kernel update I downloaded yesterday (with update manager) I have had this "low graphics" issue again.

With Graphics card, I have nVidia GeForce 220 GT. The drivers are up to date, active, and in use. (according to the "hardware drivers" tool.

OpenSUSE :: Exiting Adobe Flash's Fullscreen Screws Up Display?

Apr 25, 2011

since some update to the latest Flash, I've been getting a weird issue. If I'm watching a flash video in fullscreen (via firefox) and hit "esc" to leave full screen, about 20-40% of the time it will screw up the monitor's display of everything. The entire screen gets weird white and colored pixels randomply all over the screen (see the attached picture). Restarting is the only thing that fixes this. I tried logging out and back in but the issue remains. I have two questions:

1. How do I fix this without a restart?
2. What could be causing this?

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel 2.6.36 Graphics News?

Sep 12, 2010

I was reading the latest openSUSE news #140 under the kernel information and I found something I felt anyone interested in the future of Graphics Support in the kernel should read. It was very interesting for me to read and so maybe the same for you.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Intel I7 HD Graphics Gives Black Screen Sometimes On Boot Kernel 2.6.37 Rc7

Dec 30, 2010

Just a little background I have a sony vaio VPCZ119X laptop and have been struggling to get all components working under linux especially the intel graphics. I saw that once I upgraded to the latest available kernel release which currently is 2.6.37 rc7. The intel graphics is working, but sometimes when I boot I get a blank/black screen but seems to be lit up. All other functions seem working so for example I am able to login etc just that I dont see anything on the screen.

I have tried the following so far to identify the issue or isolate it:

- Switching to the console screens has no effect, still the black / blank screen.

- Restarting the system does not always immediately get the screen working, sometimes it takes a couple of reboots before the screen is available

- I have a switchable graphics with nVidia I never get this problem when I use the nvidia driver

- I have tried closing the lid etc as suggested in the below post without any change in output, will try further as there are other options available as well The "Black Screen" on Boot I see one difference between both the Xorg log files but I am not able to reason out why this happens hence I will just supply the files here and try not to theorize.

Xorg.0.log - This was the log output when I got the X display working Xorg.o.log.old - This was the log output when the X display was black/blank Also to highlight that I am using the latest kernel release that is still being tested I guess so maybe it is also a bug in the kernel?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Install A Kernel Patch To Support On-board NVidia Graphics?

Mar 22, 2011

I am impressed with 11.4 and am happy that for the first time ever I don't need to install a kernel patch to support my on-board nVidia graphics. However, the on-board sound no longer works now. I don't know how to set it up in phonon. My device number 0 in phonon is MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S high definition audio, and I assume this is my nVidia on-board sound card. The driver information states snd-hda-intel.

How can I check what is wrong with it? It did work fine on 11.2 right up to the 11.4 installation. I do get system sounds (like the start-up and shut-down sounds), but nothing from any application, e.g., firefox playing a video. Based on the advice from another thread I tried: speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav This does not produce any sound, but gives the following information: speaker-test

Playback device is default

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Call Up Graphics Card Settings In Yast After 11.3 Upgrade

I've just upgraded from 11.1 to 11.3. When I go into Yast and try to invoke the Graphics Card and Monitor settings, nothing happens - I get the spinning circles for a few seconds and nothing after that. How can I get at those settings, and why doesn't Yast let me do that?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrade 11.2 Kernel To 2.6.34-8 - 11.3 MS 7 ?

Jun 15, 2010

I have tried to 'rpm -ivh' the 2.6.34-8 image to the 2.6.31-5 on my Suse 11.2. Without any luck, rpm goes fine, however at the next bootup, then udev is about to be initialized, the machine goes down (don't see any message).

But if I install the MileStone 7 of 11.3 on the same machine, it works just fine.

Are there any scripts/howtos I have to follow if I upgrade from 2.6.31 to 2.6.34?

OpenSUSE Install :: Hanging - How To Upgrade The Kernel

Mar 6, 2011

I am running 11.3 for about 4 months and it suddenly started to hang intermittently, sometimes many times a day. Once KDE restarted and other times the screen went black. Most of the time it was just hanging and I needed to force a shutdown. The only clue I got is KDE displayed a notification saying "Disabling IRQ #24" not long after it started to go nuts.

After searching around, I figured the problem was with my external video card so I pulled it out 2 days ago and so far it didn't freeze again. After searching around some more, I found many users fixed very similar issues by upgrading to kernel 2.6.35 and I am ready to go for this solution. But now, I couldn't find out how to upgrade the kernel. People said it can be done in Yast but I only see version 2.6.34. What is the easiest way to upgrade?

OpenSUSE :: Can't Recompile Virtualbox Kernel Modules After Upgrade To 11.4?

This is my first post here. I'm using Opensuse 11.2 (Gnome)and the inbuilt kernel is 2.6.31.xx. My laptop is having bcm4312 (14e4 : 4315 id)chipset for wireless.

I've done the same exactly given in some other link -

make mrproper
make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install

After rebooting it's not showing anything new.Just the boot menu with the older one. Experts, Kindly let me know what I'm missing?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Kernel Upgrade Causes Bootchart To Fill Root?

Nov 22, 2009

I did a kernel upgrade in openSUSE 11.2 which caused bootchart to fill the root partition or so it would appear as when I rebooted I started getting messages on the console saying bootchartd could not write because the device was full.

Let me begin by describing my system:

Partition table:
fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00083a53

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 2612 20980858+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 2613 15666 104856255 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3 * 15667 15927 2096482+ 83 Linux

As you can see from the partition table I have 2GB allocated for the / partition and according to the df command there is 0 free space but du -hx shows / is only using 405MB. What's happened to the almost 1.6GB that should be available?

OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Upgrade On 11.1 - Cannot Find Module After Reboot

Nov 10, 2010

I've upgraded kernel to on openSUSE 11.1. Before I tried to upgrade to where I encountered the same issue. After reboot it can not find the modules for which puzzled me to no end. Now I have found that the /boot which is on separate partition of ext2 type is not mounted. The mount command does not recognize ext2 and xfs anymore.

Clearly the initrd does not have the right modules. Since this is standard zypper up process I would expect this to work without issues since it has worked until the kernel without issues. Has something changed with the last 2 kernel versions that requires some extra actions from me and if so what do I have to do.

OpenSUSE Install :: Manually Change Information On Every Kernel Upgrade

Jan 1, 2011

To run my other linux distros on another drive I have been manually entering the kernel and initrid info for each distro on the opensuse yast boot loader. For windows 7 it just runs the mbr on the drive windows 7 is on. However I can not get it to do that on the other linux drive. The problem for me is that on every kernel upgrade I have to manually change the info. I would rather have grub on the sdd linux disk take care of it on the upgrades. The drive that holds the other linux versions is sdd. Opensuse is on sdc.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Kernel Upgrade In 11.3/ KDE4.5: Fullscreen Flash Hang In X?

Sep 5, 2010

Seems that my kernel was the problem then I update it manually but I want a update in Kernel, but keep in boot my current kernel and add the update kernel on boot, how to? The X, mouse and other freeze but audio still running along with crtl+alt+f2:[URL].. Jay Ashworth 2010-09-05 04:03:09 UTC

"2) Flashplayer in fullscreen freezes X; the audio from the video keeps playing continuously, not in a loop, but the video freezes, and (in some cases) the user can switch to a text console--possibly only once--and kill X without having to reboot. This latter description is pretty clearly the actual bug here on 620157, and if you read all 4 descriptions, you can see that the other three are *not* this particular failing."

OpenSUSE :: Wireless Adapter No Longer Detected After Kernel Upgrade / Solve This?

Aug 17, 2011

No wireless after upgrading to linux kernel 3.0 in opensuse 11.4. I'm using Kde and gnome 3, everything was working fine under the 2.6.39 kernel, but now both only detects my wired connection. Any help resolving this would be greatly appreciated. I have a Netgear WNDA3100 adapter that uses the Atheros drivers. It also is no longer detected in my Fedora 15 after upgrading the kernel, but it still works in Mint 11 with the kernel.

OpenSUSE Install :: Starting Xserver After Upgrade / Error Message That Current Kernel Can Not Be Loaded?

May 21, 2011

I was about to do upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4.I was following the guide I found in opensuse's website. I was to the point where I had to disable all 11.3 repositories and add the 11.4 at that point I forgot to change my nvidia repository ( I have a g210m graphic card).

thus after the upgrade the X could not start at all. I think this was because Yast could not find the nvidia driver.

Using text mode YaSt2 I added the nvidia driver but after restart I can not see and X running. I receive an error message that the current kernel can not be loaded!!!

I also checked in command line if there is something like Sax2.. but I couldnot find anything.

Ubuntu :: Updates Screws Up Grub?

Jun 5, 2010

Both my netbook and this machine needs an update (according to the update manager) Well 2 days ago, I let it update the netbook. Bad mistake. Long story short; it installed a new kernel, and monkeyed with GRUB (v1.5) and it wouldn't boot. It's that new grub thing, with the long cryptic numbers/letters string, instead of the more normal hd0, hd1 thing. I had no clue on how to restore it.

How can I back up GRUB next time, let it update, then restore grub back the way it's suppose to work? I tried backing up the menu.lst file, but that didn't work. I backed up, and restored it, and the netbook still wouldn't boot. Got the very same error message. I had to do a partimage to bring back the old image of it. Also Grub-install will not work at all, from systemrescueCD.

Is there some sort of up-to-date tutorial on Grub? I've had more problems with Grub than anything dealing with linux. Especially since anything happens to it, your virtually screwed.

But the clients I've found so far are very clunky about moving around the screen of the server system, there doesn't seem to be a clean way of exiting the client, and now the keyboard on the system which I ran the client on is completely screwed up.I need something sane here.First, how do I get my keyboard working correctly again?Second, is there a VNC client that's actually any good?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Update Consistently Screws Up Programs

While the fix itself is easy, it is an inconvenience to have to do this after every weekly update. Why this is happening, what I can do to prevent it from occurring in the future (aside from not updating).
