    I guess you would recommend to get a current video card ? Yes/no ?
    I would not, unless you're sure it's broken. Mine works fine:

    No.
    • But, only so long that the AMD Chipset on your motherboard is OK with that card …

    XFS is designed for large files and large directories (many large files) – user partitions – application data …

    Which, is a bit of an overkill for the system partition(s): ext4 is quite sufficient for the system partition(s) …

    Hi
    @mrmazda, @dcurtisfra .... update
    Whilst waiting for my ssd I reinstalled leap 15 with xfs. I could perform btrfs filesystem usage and snapper list. All normal outputs with little data cause it was a new install.

    about 10 minutes running the system froze ! reboot a few times and froze. That indicated to me btrfs was not the culprit.

    Got my new ssd installed leap 15 using btrfs. Again btrfs filesystem usage and snapper list gave no errors . The system froze after about 10 minutes. Reboot a number of times same scenario.

    Next I downloaded tumbleweed. Installed with btrfs, sofar no problem. So it seams as indicated by @dcurtisfra the problem most likely was with the CPU.!!!!!!

    I will keep you posted. ... but I think the problem may have been solved with the tumbleweed kernel.

    regards

    Don't think snapper works on XFS just on BTRFS
