[opensuse-factory] Re: Tumbleweed snapshot 20170112 - hanging Plasma, broken extended display

I just wanted to update the state of the initial issues for Tumbleweed
20170120, for synchronizing with people having similar problems:

2017-01-16 11:39 GMT+01:00 René Krell <renda.krell@xxxxxxxxx>:
Additionally to the reported issues with this snapshot I have these
two on a HP ZBook 15 G2 notebook, running kernel 4.9.0_2 from the TW
update repository:

1. Plasma desktop does sometimes hang during startup, I see the
message "Yakuake started" at the beginning, but no widget, just the
empty background. In this situation, when trying to reboot, the
shutdown hangs on a task I haven't still identified for about one and
a half minute, systemd shuts it down probably forcibly after this

I can't recognize this any longer.
(plasmashell is still falling into using 100% CPU time several times a
day, but this is already reported to (and recognized by) the Plasma
developers -


2. A second display connected to the docking station stopped working,
it doesn't even wake up neither during booting nor after Plasma has
been started. The second display isn't even recognized according to
the Plasma desktop settings, there is just the laptop display present.
This has been still working with the update state of last friday (20170110).

This does still happen, even if using the latest kernel from the
Kernel:Stable repository: 4.9.5.
I've reported a workaround here:
Switch off Hybrid Graphics in BIOS (use the NVidia adapter only) and
fully use the native nvidia driver 375.26 in Twin-View mode.
