Re: [opensuse] Plasmashell and Firefox freezing if started within five minutes of log-in

Hi all,

Since todays set of updates for openSUSE Leap 42.3, which seems to have
included kernels and Systemd updates, my plasmashell will fail to fully load
after log-in. It shows the small working area handle in the upper corner but
the main control bar is missing. Running `killall plasmashell && kstart
plasmashell` will result in exactly the same if done withing roughly five
minutes after log-in. Once about five minutes have passed plasmashell will come
up fine after a restart and then work flawlessly.

The same issue happens for Firefox. If started within the first five minutes
after log-in the window will come up, but it won't load any tabs and I can't
interact with it. Once roughly five minutes have passed I can start it and it
works as usual.

Also, konsole works basically, but it will sometimes freeze. Then only killing
the window will recover it. This, too, vanishes after the (about) five minute
mark.

Has anybody observed anything similar after todays update? I have tried
booting with the previous kernel version (4.4.79-19.1), but this did not make
a difference.

The only red lines I found in the Systemd journal is `eventfd() failed: Too
many open files`. This however happens about twice per minute:

Any hints on where I should look next to gain any insight to the problem would
be highly appreciated. Solutions even more, of course. ;)

Kind Regards,
Matthias

I see that the main update repo is working again, did your update start with a libzypp patch?
You may have to rerun your update.
