Installing on SSD: moving /tmp and /var into tmpfs in RAM memory

Here is another bizarre garbled screenshot,

After this happened, all text on the screen was corrupted as above, (icon labels, other windows, etc)

And yet another bizzare photobucket image :wink: Suggest you use imagebam or openSUSE paste…

Sure it’s not the Desktop environment in use, does it duplicate for a test user if your create on and login, try ICEwm?

Got it. This resolved the situation:
Open /etc/default/grub as SU. Change the line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash”, to this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“intel_idle.max_cstate=1 quiet splash”, then update Grub by running, “grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg” as SU and reboot.
I tried a variety of solutions from overprovisioning >30% of the SSD, to several different partition configuration types, and file systems w/no success.
See for further information. Thanks.

Note: Error message associated w/above problem is,
