Recent security update causes random freezes

Tue Dec 11, 2018 1:52 pm

Installed latest security updates and computer freezes and never recovers. Hard shutdown -> logged back in -> then tried to see eopkg history and noticed when I try to revert to more stable snapshot, prompts about Nvidia drivers and Vulkan when I'm running XFX RX580
Might this be causing the graphics card to crash?

Always do a full system update unless you have a reason for not checking a specific update.

Sorry for not pointing this out earlier, but when there is a update in software center I automatically check all there is so by default im always running 'full system update'

Okay. You shouldn't worry about the modaliases files: they are used by doflicky to identify the hardware. And vulkan is probably required by another package like mpv or gstreamer.

How can I safely escape freezes, instead of hard-shutdowning?

Depends on what's frozen?

Looks like it's Firefox that crashes at times, but I can't really tell since everything freezes and only thing that fixes it is to hard-shutdown.

Is there any crashlogs like bluescreen dumps in Solus?
Is there a key combo to safely reboot or open ctrl+alt+del similar sysmonitor?

You can look at the journal logs.
* -b is used to indicate for which boot you want to view the logs (-1 means the previous boot, so run it after you system freeze and wait a little before doing a hard-shutdown to make sure you won't miss some messages)
* -r means reverse so it will the most recent messages first instead of the oldest.
* You can also run the command without sudo but you'll get much lesser messages.

Code: Select all

sudo journalctl -b-1 -r
