Thread: What is your daily dose of KDE crashes?

  1. #1

    Question What is your daily dose of KDE crashes?

    I am curious to learn how often do the kwin_x11 and similar crash in your computer, assuming you work daily, and update regularly.

    I see crashes once per day, mostly while doing something with a window. After about half of them, I have to reboot.

    This is worse than Windows 10, 8.1, 7. Since 2014, the Ks cannot figure out that libQtsomething segfault.

    This is often a video problem so need to know video card/chip and driver

    100% solid here.

    You might want to report on your hardware as suggested

    Same here but, I suspect that it's a platform issue -- one has to assume that, most of the open Source (Linux) developers and testers are using Intel based hardware.

    I'm beginning to suspect that most of the Leap 42.2 KDE Plasma 5 Segment Faults are occurring only on AMD based hardware.
    Using a Lenovo G505s Laptop with an AMD A10-5750M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics I experience 1 or 2 DrKonqui crashes per day -- take a look in the KDE Bugzilla and you'll see my reporting rate -- unfortunately one of the issues only crashed once (or maybe fortunately because I was able to send the KDE folks the crash dump . . . ) -- since then the System Settings window (Touch Pad setup) simply disappears without crashing.

    I'm also experiencing openSUSE Plymouth crashes (Crash Dump submitted) which the openSUSE developers also claim that they can't reproduce.

    Bottom line: despite AMD sponsoring Linux and openSUSE in particular, it seems that AMD hardware is handled in much the same way as one handles the mother-in-law by the open Source development community.

    Hardware platform?
    • In particular CPU, motherboard Chip Set and Graphic card.

    I assume you mean mine, as you quote me.
    Asus AMD760G/SB710
    AMD FX4300
    Nvidia GT710 (Nvida driver 375.20)
    I also use the KDE repos

    a couple of (plasma I suppose) freeze, not crash, a day solved with
    Code:
    killall plasmashell; kstart plasmashell
    Laptop=Dell latitude E6510, RAM=8Gb, GPU=GT218 NVS 3100M, CPU=i7 Q 720 @ 1.60GHz

    I'm not seeing an obvious problem here.

    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.

    Thumbs down One more segfault

    Another fresh crash today... reported to KDE's bug tracking system through KDE's crash reporting utility:

    Code:
    [KCrash Handler]#6  0x00007f0deed68dd0 in QQmlBinding::write(QQmlPropertyData const&, QV4::Value const&, bool, QFlags<QQmlPropertyPrivate::WriteFlag>) () at /usr/lib64/libQt5Qml.so.5
    (It is interesting whether they have a crash prevention utility.)
