    This is worse than Windows 10, 8.1, 7. Since 2014, the Ks cannot figure out that libQtsomething segfault.
    How do you want us to provide a serious answer to this without giving us one single piece of information. Given your last line I'll consider this a rant and will be moving it to General-Chit-chat

    I have a Toshiba laptop with an AMD chip that had quite a lot of problems with Leap 42.1 - sometimes it wouold run for hours without any problems and other times it would take several reboots before it was stable. Since upgrading to 42.2 just over two weeks ago, I have not had a single problem with the screen and the only program that has caused problems is Kontact which still will not run (it didn't in 42.1).

    Just saying Intel hardware is vague
    if using intel integrated graphics there is a known bug with sna acceleration the fix is simple use uxa
    https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-d...st/000088.html
    if that's a newer laptop use bumblebee (uxa is still recommended as bumblebee is a mix of intel and nvidia hardware)
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_Bumblebee
    if nvidia card don't use the noveau 3d package if you want 3d acceleration use nvidia's propiatory driver
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers
    if that's a desktop with a newer intel cpu that includes a builtin gpu disable intel's gpu in bios google is your friend
    if that's an amd graphic card try the latest fglrx drivers
    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:AMD_fglrx
    I had some issues on 42.1 with nouveau but zero issues with nvidia's drivers on an intel cpu + nvidia gpu

    Default Crashes with both drivers

    Is a desktop with a new Nvidia card.

    kwin_x11 crashes both with nouveau and nvidia drivers. With nouveau the crashes seem to happen more often.

    Compositor is enabled. Rendering backend is XRender.

    However, looking at "/var/lib/systemd/coredump", I see dumps from "klauncher" and from "drkonqi". I did not notice any observable evidence of the problems. (There are three dumps for each).

    Hmm, based on the timestamps of the dumps, and a hazy recollection of events, they might have been crashes during startup of KDE, or perhaps during shutdown of KDE. Hmm, shutdown looks more likely. The most recent startup time (from the "last" command) is a few minutes after the most recent dumps.

    Dumping core during shutdown isn't going to be anything that I fret about.
    If you have core dumps on shutdown (and are satisfied its benign) you can easily turn them off, see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Core_dump

    did you disable intel's gpu in bios, if you have a newer inetel cpu it has a gpu and that needs to be disabled

    Did you check if your RAM is doing OK? No, this is not a joke, but a faulty RAM can give you lots of crashes randomly.

    @ZStefan,

    You should post your hardware

    CPU
    GPU
    RAM
    Swap size (maybe).

    And, whether you've updated your system. Instead of relying on Apper, you should run the following in an elevated console at least once after your new install
    Code:
    zypper update
    You should also note what was the last thing you were doing each time your system crashes.
