GNOME freezes after login

Disabling the keyring stuff did not change the fact, that freezes occure on login. But there are maybe less? I won’t do a statistical analysis but these frezzes are very infrequent…
I have another theory: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/3092
Maybe on login the power consumption of the graphic card spikes. Does somebody know if this is possible? I use corectrl and i can’t limit the power usage there anymore.
This two bugs go hand in hand and i have freezes in games as well. so maybe this would be the fix for me?
I currently don’t have the time or patience to analyse this anoying bug further. But if someone has further things to test, i am happy to try.

I don’t want to speak too soon, but looks like since the 6.7.2 kernel it didn’t freeze anymore. I just didn’t turn on the system too many times the past week, but I never had to restart since that update.

I’m having this issue as well, anyone figured out why this is happening? :man_shrugging:

My journal didn’t have these, also post a full journal of a failed login boot. You posted journal -f which is a live journal, not a log of failed boot.

journalctl -b -0 # last boot
journalctl -b -1 # boot before last
journalctl -b -2 # and two boot before last

Freezing stopped for me, after a few updates. I forgot to close the thread. One thing that helped a bit is disabling some autostart items.

Also try to disable extensions, see if it stops happening without extensions.

There was just an update, i updated and booted in with no issues.

Early this morning after the update, i had to reboot like 3 times and on my 3rd time i booted into the LTS Kernel. :man_shrugging:

I had this problem for a few months Freezing after login and having to reboot 2 to 4 times at every daily power up. It was apparently due to a mouse going bad. The mouse eventually became defective enough for me to notice. Soon as the mouse was replaced the problem went away.
