http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello, first an overview of my hardware: Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3 rev 2.1 Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3,16GHz 2x2GB OCZ Reaper DDR2-1066 Gainward Geforce GTX 260 Overclocked @ Golden Sample Main harddrive: 200GB Samsung SATA2 @ IDE Native Mode Creative X-Fi Extreme Music Samsung Synchmaster T200 always pluged in usb devices: Logitech G5 Logitech G11 Canon Pixma iP4600 ok now my problem: I've made a brand new opensuse 11.2 (amd64, kernel-desktop) installation and installed the nvidia driver 190.53 from the official nvidia repository. Sometimes when the XServer restarts (i.e. on log-off or when I switch runlevels from 3 to 5) the system is getting very, very slow. When I try to switch to tty1 it takes 30 sec, log in takes 1 min, when I click on the desktop I can't even move my mouse for ~30 sec. Here's what I've tried: -Update Kernel. -Update KDE to 4.3.5. -Update KDE to 4.4. -New installation, installed an older Nvidia driver via run shell from the nvidia site (190.42 which works fine on my fathers machine, he got the exactly same video card) => Bug is still there. Any idea what I can try? Anyone with similar problems? Thanks! Fabian R. (Distributions)
