I had to leave Fedora a year ago because of breaking KDE Plasma
updates mid-cycle (even on "current minus one" Fedora). I have since
learned that this problem is unavoidable because of the Plasma release
cycle, when the previous (non-LTS) release immediately stops being
supported; this forces an update mid-cycle to a new Plasma and
glitches can happen.
I am looking at trying again, but can I somehow freeze all Plasma
packages, while not disabling updates for all other stuff? I know what
"dnf versionlock" is, but how do I create a correct list for it?
The idea would be to freeze Plasma packages in advance of a Plasma
version update and unfreeze a month after the new version goes into
Fedora, watching for critical security issues in the meantime.
I am having weird lockups with nvidia driver. Need to use the binary
source for some apps I use. Machine is not 100% frozen as I can ssh in
and make a clean shutdown.
I am using Xorg still.
It only seems to happen when playing videos in full screen on one monitor.
I do have some issues when switching between sessions as I have multiple
users logged in at one time and all the time. If I use Plasma desktop,
I end up with a KWIN using 100% of a CPU. I have not had time to worry
about it yet. Going to wait to update to F33 first.
I am concerned about KDE stability at present. Many little things
adding up to a major headache.
