Not quite ready to quit EndeavourOS but regular freeze ups making OS too unreliable to use.
Yes, whilst doing mild multitasking the pointer will freeze and the keyboard will not respond resulting in having to hit the power off button.
This has happened many times even during updating which then requires unblocking on fresh boot.`
However when working and it freezes I have noticed that on powering up again; up pops the update notifier leading to me to suspect that the cause of the freeze is the update notifier itself which cannot show, due to some bug whilst working – typing a letter or surfing web, whatever.
I always check for updates every fresh boot; even so perhaps I can disable update notifications before doing any important work or task such as internet banking as I would hate having to crash out in the middle ofsuch a transaction. Hence I have checked the Do Not Disturb slider for the first time this session.
Guess I got used to 100% reliability over the years with Trisquel gnu-linux that this freeze glitch is so annoying – log file link below…
Thanks – will let you know if the Do Not Disturb slider cures the freeze problem.
