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?

Will,

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
mozilla-xulrunner191-gnomevfs-1.9.1.11-0.1.1.i586
mozilla-xulrunner191-devel-1.9.1.11-0.1.1.i586
mozilla-xulrunner192-1.9.2.10-0.4.1.i586
mozilla-xulrunner192-gnome-1.9.2.10-0.4.1.i586
mozilla-xulrunner191-1.9.1.11-0.1.1.i586
mozilla-xulrunner192-devel-1.9.2.10-0.4.1.i586
mozilla-xulrunner192-translations-common-1.9.2.10-0.4.1.i586
mozilla-xulrunner191-translations-common-1.9.1.11-0.1.1.i586

I also just tried again after today's updates. FF loads, but as soon as
I typed
'down' to bring up 'http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/' 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 :(
