One Quick Freeze

Hello I am experiencing a freezing issue it doesn’t last long and from what I have experienced so far it seems to be a only at the beginning of my session. I am using KDE and I just moved from manjaro and was distro hopping before I ended up here. Please give me any suggestions that might help me out here.

Could you give the out from this command to see your partition schema ?

Sorry for the late reply. The sda disk is a external drive. That keeps a snapshot of the system I am using. I didn’t use a swap, because I remember reading that swap are only needed if you are constantly using all of your RAM and read that even those cases you are better off just buying RAM than using swap. Thank you for the welcome and I appreciate the help you are offering!

If this is a fresh install, it’s probably baloo acting up. This is a fairly common problem with fresh KDE installs. If you don’t need file indexing, you can disable it, by running

balooctl disable 

Reboot, and see if there are any freezes.

I did try this unfortunately that doesn’t seem to have fixed that issue for me. Thank you for the suggestion nevertheless

Another thing worth trying is an LTS kernel.

I would switch to a LTS Kernel as a last resort. I read somewhere else on these forums that the fresh install of KDE is causing issues. I may just try reinstalling it via cli and rebooting to see if that fixes my issue.

First resort :hugs:

Well the KDE reinstall definitely wasn’t the solution. Would you mind giving me the command to switch the LTS kernel?

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers
systemctl reboot
Pick the LTS kernel from grub.

That doesn’t seem to be the issue either. Though it seems the freeze doesn’t freeze the entire system like it did on the 5.9 kernel. Should I post the logs for my system to see if that may offer better insight?

Here are all the relevant logs from my system. If you want me to post the direct pastbin links let me know.

I am wondering if you have any issues with sound devices? Did you install sof-firmware? I am taking a guess here that the audio chip is missing the firmware?

Honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I said if you think that has anything to do with my freezing issue. I installed sof-firmware since it wasn’t installed and it seems to have not change anything for my sound setup. I am using schiit modi 3 dac and schiit magni heresy amp just so you know.
