I am having weird lockups with nvidia driver. Need to use the
source for some apps I use. Machine is not 100% frozen as I can ssh
and make a clean shutdown.
I am using Xorg still.
It only seems to happen when playing videos in full screen on one
I do have some issues when switching between sessions as I have
users logged in at one time and all the time. If I use Plasma
I end up with a KWIN using 100% of a CPU. I have not had time to
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.
what nvidia do you have ? I don't remember any freeze problem in many
months or years .
Now problems and freezes with old nvidia cards I got some , in a old
laptop I need to use kernel 4.14 TLS ...
