I installed Tumbleweed and have updated to the latest packages.
Problem is, I’m getting random freezing on the computer, this is happening at any time, during web browsing, bench marking or any other task, no matter how light or heavy the load is. This happens probably 10 minutes after booting into openSUSE, leaving the PC stuck with no other solution than doing a hard reset using the power button.
I have also a double boot of Windows 10 that is working with no issues whatsoever.
I’ve been having that same soft lockup/freezing issue for the past 7 months (since I got my Ryzen 1800x). No issues when dual booting to Windows. PC will lock up at any time for any reason, seems totally unpredictable from my point of view.
I made a thread about it a bit ago, and one user suggested modifying the kernel boot parameters, however I can’t say the difference is all that great for me. Upgrading to TW didn’t seem to do much in terms of resolving the issue either.
Indeed, it seems that is not a solution to modify the kernel boot parameters .
For me, after the last BIOS (Asus Prime X370-Pro and 4011 BIOS), no problem so far (26h and no freeze).
It seems that nobody really knows what is going on.
I hope that is not the reality (post #337, last paragraph): https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=196683
I had this issue too with my Ryzen 1800X. It seems to be a known issue with the C6 deep idle power state. Turning it off in the BIOS can help, but may not be possible if your BIOS is as bad as mine (or it may also turn off additional power saving states that actually work).
I decided to fix the issue by creating a service that disables the C6 power state on boot. It has been working fine for a few weeks on my PC now. I uploaded it to OBS in case anyone else still has this problem: You can install it from the repository here
Don’t forget to enable and start the service after installation with*sudo systemctl enable amd-disable-c6.service
* sudo systemctl start amd-disable-c6.service
