GeForce GTX 960
Only seems to happen when using one of two monitors for full screen
video. nVidia driver goes to 100%.
Also having issues with switching between users and sddm but I am
waiting to upgrade to 33 to try to debug.
I have many problem with the present iteration of KDE on Fedora but
waiting for F33 on this computer.
Had a slightly different freeze the other day and it didn't kill
everything but it did freeze one of my monitors and caused other issues
that would only end with a reboot.
All my desktop freezes had only one thing in common and that was Falkon
open. This last freeze was directly related to Falkon as the process
965530 XXXX 20 0 3454544 1.6g 87892 R 138.6 5.2 4:55.10
QtWebEngineProc is called by Falkon. Looking through various lists, it
does seem that there are some issues with this process and it is used
for displaying stuff from the browser.
I am still on 32.
When I killed the QtWebEngineProc, is affected kscreenlocker and
prevented me from switching accounts as there was no login prompt on the
other account. kscreenlocker was at 100% for the second account.
