    Default what uses systemd-journal

    I was in the yast software manager,
    where I searched for 'games'
    and selected to taboo all in the list.
    I noticed the already installed still have checkmarks,
    and when I chose to delete them,
    it talked about what to do with dependencies
    however it didn't have the deinstallation option,
    and talked about unlocking things.
    I decided to cancel everything,
    but when I canceled the window wouldn't disappear,
    everything except Qt Creator's titlebar became invisible,
    and it eventually crashed.
    I'm using lxqt + openbox.

    I tried rebooting but nothing happened.
    qTerminal opened, and the top command showed me systemd-journal with 99-100% CPU.
    Does yast use this? I also had Qt Creator and Chromium open.
    Is it safe to use the kill command in this case?

    I tried Ctrl+Alt+backspace*2 but it just went to a dark screen,
    and I was eventually forced to do a hard shutdown.

    Default Re: what uses systemd-journal

    From the following page at freedesktop:

    systemd-journald is a system service that collects and stores logging data
    It was likely logging the event that was occurring. Or was trying to. systemd-journal should be running as the root user, and so you will likely be unable to kill that process. And if you could, I would refrain from doing so. It's best to let it attempt to finish writing out what it is it's doing.
