Hmm, Will,

This might be the same issue I am seeing after this mornings updates on
11.3 i586. Running k3, if I start firefox my box hardlocks. Have to
power-off to recover - no ctrl+alt+anything, no ssh in - it's locked
tighter than a drum. If i unplug the usb mouse and plug it back in -- it
stays dead.

I have nothing but sane repos on this box. Are these the right versions?
I think so but I can't tell because you omitted the -d part of the zypper
command and the Distribution part of the libkdecore4 rpm information.

I don't think KDE4 and Qt libraries can have much influence on Firefox on KDE
3 hard locking your box. To exclude that possibility, uninstall the KDE 4
firefox integration: mozilla-xulrunner191-kde4. It is probably something else
related to the update, did it include a kernel update?



I checked the box and there is no mozilla-xulrunner191-kde4. But
something is
definitely wrong with the mozilla package handling and RPM:

22:17 zephyr:~> rpm -qa | grep xulrunner

I also just tried again after today's updates. FF loads, but as soon as
I typed
'down' to bring up '' FF locked the
box again. From the look of the installed packages there are definitely
duplicates that are probably causing the lock with conflicts.

How did RPM let me install 2 versions? I'll go wipe out the mozilla
install and
reinstall and see if that fixes it. But the big question is how could this
happen? I have just used yast and zypper to do updates on this box. I haven't
installed any mozilla packages from any other source :(
