We have a number of identical desktops running SLED 11 SP2. They have been reliable. However, on Monday night we did a zypper update (from an SMS server that has a test and production environment) and the packages below were updated on production. Since that update we have had 5 or 6 instances of production desktops freezing. The mouse and keyboard stop responding. The computers do not respond to ping. The only solution is to turn off and reboot. /var/log/messages does not give any clues.
Are any of these packages likely culprits? (I expected a kernel update or something…)
What is the best way to back out updates?
The following packages are going to be upgraded:
