OS freezing up

I just installed htop yesterday and have been watch nothing seems out of the ordinary but will keep monitoring to see thanks

Fwiw, you might want to add -z to your command:

-z, --filter Adds security filters for IP/MAC addresses, serial numbers,
location (-w), user home directory name, host name.

Sorry! Of course I do not mean anything but I will take note. This is how I found it somewhere here.
I will change to:

inxi -FAZ --no-host | eos-sendlog

which I got from A friendly intro about our community rules and tips for the forum

Hi @kcmccombs

I see your machine is OK. You have more than enough.
The only thing that maybe causing issues is NVIDIA graphic cards as far as I read here. But as I mentioned earlier I am no expert by any means and never tried NVIDIA. So I leave this to the experts here, maybe they can add something.

Well, for the DE you chose (Gnome), I do not know if there is a problem with it. I am using KDE Plasma and never had an issue with it.

It appears to me you can simply do a reinstall of EndeavourOS.
I put myself in your place, if I were you I would reinstall but with KDE Plasma, maybe it will work fine.

My limited knowledge and experience tells me:

  • the only reason for freezing maybe the NVIDIA graphics card
  • KDE Plasma might work better perhaps.
  • I noticed

which is not supposed to be too much data being indexed.

This is all what I can say!
Hopefully someone more experienced than me can help.

Yeah I like KDE I went with gnome because of the way dock is set in the center wasn’t sure if I could do that with KDE thanks for all your input if I continue having issues I may give KDE a try

Just my 2 cents. Most here are on KDE Plasma for many reasons (you may search and read about it). I am not saying no to Gnome or yes to KDE Plasma, it is a personal taste.

I am sure you will enjoy anyway.
