Thread: What is your daily dose of KDE crashes?

  1. #21

    Default Hardware

    CPU is Intel i7-3***. There is no GPU on the dye. Has four cores. Hyperthreading is disabled. I have worked, though much less, in Windows in the same computer with Nvidia driver installed. Don't remember crashes. I have no reasons to suspect a defect in RAM.

    The graphics card is a low-powered Nvidia, not ancient. Installation of the latest driver from Nvidia's web site went without problems.

    RAM is 16 GB. Swap's size is 22 GB.

    I update both by running Apper and via Yast. Usually I run one of them once a day, manually. I will add 'zypper update' into the routine.

    Crashes happened, for example, when I was:

    - Adjusting sound level.
    - Configuring Panel (crashed twice).
    - Started an application which tried to create its window. (This crash was not deadly.)

    Default Two per day

    My frequency of kwin crashes these days (December 2016) is around 2 per day.

    Most of the crashes occur when an application opens a window, or when several windows are going to be created by an application.

    Luckily, most of the crashes are not deadly, meaning there is no need to reboot.

    Interesting is to compare this with the crash rates of other applications:

    - Audacity, almost 2 per use (big, complex tasks).
    - Firefox, 0 or 1 per day.
    - Text editors (Kate, LibreOffice) - none.
    - Gimp - none.
    - Simple apps like calculator - none.
    - Photo viewers - 1 per day.
    - Media players: several per day, but may be because of media files.
    - Skype - 2 per hour of use.
    - Ksysguard - none per day.
    - Gparted - none.
    - Printer monitor from HP - 1 per day.
    - Command-line tools (fdisk, dd, mount, pico, gmake) - none per day.
    - Acroread - 1 at start, 1 per long use or 1 per hour.

    Most of these rates are the same over years.

    All is updated via zypper update.

    I had a fair bit of lockups when writing in the thread "How do I set acceleration on "TPPS/2 IBM TrackPoint" ?" and when I started writing this. Atm Im in xfce instead. I don't know what fails when the whole session locks. I had a total lockup a few minutes ago when starting a terminal.
    I manually triggered a crash by starting firefox opening a terminal closing it open it. Opened dolphin and I got a crash.
    Yet not a full lockup. It happens randomly so I cant trigger it with a specific task.

    I love kde but perhaps I have to abandon it for now. All other desktops works fine. XFCE Mate and Cinnamon.

    I found this post fun.

    I run TW with Plasma on an old laptop. The TW is always on the latest snapshot. But I only encountered a few of KDE crashes. It's no more than 5 in a month, I guess. Maybe the reason is I do not use too many apps, or to say that I am not doing much with my laptop :-)

    mm could be..or tumbleweed received/receives bugfixes related to these crashes and leap not? At least not yet? I'm writing this in a text document and saving to be sure that the session won't lockup and I have to start all over again writing this post as it happened tens of times already.
    I came back to this machine and kde keyring somehow decided to throw me out from my network sometime during the last hours...closed the root prompt and the network password prompt came up. Closed it. Clicked the wifi icon and it connected without the need for a password. Weird.
    Now I can't close the start menu...jesus..kde 5 is a mess..opensuse is rock solid if I run any of the other desktops other than kde.
    I might try to get kde 4 on this. Its possible but takes some work. I'm just testing stability and configs how it works before I set this machine to its final state.

    Yup, it's weird because Leap should be more stable than TW. Anyway, it should not be so suck. BTW, have you tried to do a fresh install of your OS in some virtual machine to test whether the problems are caused by 3rd part apps or settings being messed up or not.

    yes I did test leap in a in a virtual machine and kde was probably as unstable there as here. Even though I discovered more bugs on this machine due to longer testing. I noticed changing theme seemed to cause crashes so I reverted to stock opensuse branding theme.
    I will do a fresh install later tonight after i've done some more testing. I first wanted to temporarily solve the trackpoint issue otherwise I feel stranded without an external mouse.

    Like I said, I encountered less problem may be because I used most of the settings out of the box. I did not make too many customisations to the system, and used only a few 3rd party apps.

    BTW, I replied to your other post on the TrackPoint. Hopefully it could be helpful.

    I've done some further testing today. A fresh install and its rock stable on gnome and xfce. Will do another fresh install with kde this afternoon.
    It could also been related to hardware because I changed the cooling paste and added some copper plates and the fan barely spins. And its acually blowing hot air when it revs up. It must been five years since I did that. Its one of those things I primarily don't think of.. because the inside is completely dust free.

    Thank you I will read further into the trackpoint. I have no knowledge of xinput and all its related settings.

    Yes you're right cnzhx. Tumbleweed is way way way more stable. I can't crash kde by in any way.
