Description Anonimo Oculto 2019-07-20 23:54:42 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0
Build Identifier: 

I've tried to proceed with standard installation process, with KDE Desktop option, and after installing all files and running all final scripts, without online repositories, a restart window was normally presented. After that windows (wait time has gone) the screen was cleared, a pallid grey background was shown with a mouse point operational, and the system did not restart by itself, staying as described for a long time. Shutting it down by force and starting again, the bootloader (grub2?)takes place with its options screen, the kernel pae begins to start, and after some variable situations, like OpenSUSE Twmbleweed screen or a black screen, the system simple restarted by itself. 
The whole installation process was done twice, with same results. 
So, I changed the standard installed kernel. During install process I´ve blocked kernel-pae and selected kernel default. System was installed and boot normally, with KDE Desktop option, showing the desired login screen.
As long as running, I've noticed that the numbers on time showed on the login screen was overlapping one another so after changing from 10:13 to 10:14 as an example, 4 was visible above a 3, both simultaneously. 
That was the minor problem. Login in, the KDE Desktop seems to run correctly on the backgrounds, but trying to do any normal operation leads to a lot of fullfiled colored rectangles and another polygons, above a expected screen already barely recognized due initial distortions. 
After another unsuccessfully as described installation, the solution was the XFCE desktop installation, with kernel default. 
Installed system seems so on stable, but at end, it is not the desired desktop.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install OpenSUSE Tumbleweed 32 bits (openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-i586-Snapshot20190713-Media.iso) with standard procedure. Choose KDE Desktop. 
2. Try again. Now block kernel pae and select kernel default. KDE Desktop option.
3. System installed and stable only with blocked pae kernel and XFCE Desktop option.
Actual Results:  
As described in details. System installed and stable only with kernel default and XFCE desktop option (the third after KDE and GNOME desktops on installation process). System does not run with kernel pae. KDE Desktop with messed screens. 

Expected Results:  
Installation by standard with KDE Desktop and KDE login screen and desktop working fine.

Machine: Acer Aspire 5610-4648, with 2GB of RAM and SSD Intel 160GB.

Bad PAE kernel is duplicate of bug 1118689.

Each bug report is for one issue only, so changing summary to limit to the KDE/video trouble, but might be bug 1141947.
