Hi openSUSE community,
I have a strange problem with X under openSUSE 11.2. After starting KDE 4.x
or Gnome, the Xorg system freezes after 5-15 minutes. If that occurs I can
still move the mouse, but any click or keyboard event is not recognized any
more. Can't switch to console. But the system itself works, since I can
login by ssh. All running (server) applications like Apache and MySQL still
work. In order to use X again, I have to reboot (init 6 does not work, I
have to type "reboot " twice). init 3 and init 5 does not work after logging
in by ssh, killing X process does also not fix it. I really have to reboot.
I have an Intel 855GM Integrated Graphics Device on board. I have already
checked the RAM with memtest, everything okay. There are no error messages
in syslog. I have tried disabling DRI, but no effect. Disabling Video cache
in BIOS or reducing the video buffer size did also not help.
Without logging in to KDE or Gnome the system runs stable for weeks, so I am
pretty sure that Xorg is the problem. I guess that these problems are caused
by the Intel graphics driver. I can remember that I had similar problems 1-2
years ago (freezes only with KDE 3 and 4, not Gnome). I am pretty sure, that
the first problems started after switching to the Intel driver (from the old
810 driver), but in openSUSE 11.1 it was running fine. Now in openSUSE 11.2
the X system freezes after some minutes working.

Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance
http://fm.no-ip.com/tmp/SUSE/111/p1ph1lvf-video.txt contains lspci, hwinfo,
xorg.conf & Xorg.0.log. This is my first encounter with onboard video with
vga, dvi & svhs outputs. The motherboard is ASUS, but cannot be found on its
web site because it is part of one of its desktop systems: P1-PH1. 11.1/KDE3
is freshly installed and updated.
No matter what I've tried so far with SaX2 or manually with xorg.conf, KDM
works, but before KDE displays anything on the desktop, the display goes into
sleep mode. Commenting away the DPMS line has no apparent effect, as do
Option "DPMS" "false", Option "NoDDC" & Option "DDC" "false". Searching
opensuse.org so far has turned up nothing on point. Google results, while
seeming to be on point, haven't yet provided a solution.
I tried a Knoppix 6.2.1 DVD, KDE4 & Xorg X Server 1.6.5. It works, but the
only thing I see in its xorg.conf that might impact my trouble is Option
"MonitorLayout" "LVDS,AUTO". I tried adding that, also with CRT instead of
LVDS, with no apparent effect. Then I tried after startx, the blanking, then
quiet disk, Alt-F2 & konsole, from which I redirected xrandr to a file. That
file says VGA-0, DFI-0 & S-video are all disconnected, confirmed by Xorg.0.log.
Anyone know whether this is an unfixed bug of some sort with multihead radeon
"cards"? Is "(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed to open the
DRM; [dri] Disabling DRI." the problem? If so, what's it actually mean
(Option "Composite" "Disable" didn't help)? "(EE) RADEON(0): No connected
devices found!" is a lie, as seems to be "(EE) RADEON(0): Using VGA default".
