Thread: Desktop freezing.

  1. #1

    Default Desktop freezing.

    Sometimes my desktop freezes. When this happens, my pc stops responding to my mouse and keyboard, but seems to continue running normal.

    When I am listening to music for example, the music keeps on playing, so pc does not seem to crash.

    Cntrl + alt + F1 is not possible any more when this happens.

    Its very annoying, but often does not happen for days. Although it does not happen that much its since I build this new pc, and started using tumbleweed.

    Is there a way I can find out what is happening ?

    Ryzen 5 cpu 16 gig ram.

    To be clear its not a new problem, and because it does not happen that often, until now I did not ask for help, and was hoping it would go away after some updates, but nope.

    Vaguely remember reading something on phoronix about ryzen 5 cpu's and usb ? Could that be related ?
    This already happened when I was using a different brand mouse.

    This could be some background task using intensive I/O, such as fstrim or snapshot management, and/or low freespace on disk. Please provide output from:
    Code:
    parted -l
    btrfs filesystem df
    df
    systemctl status fstrim.timer fstrim
    inxi -Gay

    Thank you.
    I will have a look at my bios and if there is an update available. I remember updating the bios when I build this pc, but that was last year.

    I am pretty sure I am not using btrfs though, but ext 4, if I understand anything about that command.

    Code:
