Fedora unstable for me for months

On fedora 39 at least once a week it would just freeze on KDE, to a point where I couldn’t even get to a terminal.

So I upgraded to 40 and if I had any of the power saving or lock screen options turned on it would hang when woken up.

However until recently as long as those options were disabled I hadn’t had any problem with 40.

Today for example , I’m in a virtual machine (virt manager, ultramarine Linux just updated to 40), I unplug my wireless adapter and plug back in and my whole system has frozen, ctrl alt F2 doesn’t work, same with ctrl alt delete, pressing power button doesn’t shutdown.

Any suggestions??

That should leave traces in log files - can you search, extract relevant time frames and share it here ?

Journalctl - b - 1

Specifying boot ID or boot offset had no effect, no persistent journal was found

:thinking:

Any way to activate persistent journal??

Try to plug USB WiFi dongle and unplug then check logs for, let’s say last 5 minutes.

E.g.:

journalctl --since "2020-07-10 15:10:00" --until "2020-07-12 15:15:00"

Adjust dates and times to your situation. Look for errors/warnings in the output around the time you plugged/unplugged WiFi dongle. What do you get ?

Is random that’s problem, doesn’t usually crash when I take my dongle in and out

Can you please clarify what the host OS is here? Are you using Fedora with Ultramarine in the VM, or are you running an Ultramarine OS and that’s where you’re seeing issues?

Just as a general note for folks on the forum: Ultramarine is based on Fedora, but they add lots of extra packages and so on that modify the system, so it isn’t Fedora. So, issues with it are best discussed on ultramarine specific forums.

Edit: could you please paste the output of fpaste --sysinfo --printonly?

Fedora 40 is the host. Ultramarine I was just trying out in A kvm virtual machine.

I had a problem with a wifi adapter that began having intermittent connect/disconnect timings. It began causing similar lockups. These lockups showed up as kernel “freezes” and crashes with CPU timeouts as evidenced by the abrt reports.

When I replaced the failing adapter the and network connections were once again stable the lockups were eliminated.

I theorize that there were at times some network connection that had the cpu waiting on a reply to a request and that cpu then locked the entire system since the reply was not received. The solution definitely showed the error as network related.

Maybe your unplugging of the adapter is causing some similar circumstance. If it is then waiting for some time after the freeze starts should cause a timeout and crash that would give a crash dump to point to the cause.

loadsa wireless related issues here, perhaps the wireless hardware/driver is buggy/not well supported as Jeff notes.

Without the specific freezing issues, I also confirm that Plasma 6 is tons better than Plasma 5 in terms of freezing, oom crashes, complete nonresponsiveness etc.

It works pretty great, the shell restores, I didnt have any crashes anymore. So F40 is recommended over F39

The adapter in question is a TP_link tl-wn722n. Not had many issues in terms of connecting with it with most distros (only 1 it wouldn’t work with so far)

LHWDB probes for TP Link TK-WN722N mention several drivers, both in kernel and 3rd party, with mixed experiences across multiple distros. Which driver are you using?

kernel driver i think.

GitHub - lwfinger/rtl8xxxu: Repository that tracks drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtl8xxxu in wireless_next repository has some 3rd party ones i guess i could try if issue continues

This really provides no information. We need to know the exact driver loaded, which can usually be found with a single command.

You should be able to run lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 -E "network|Wi-Fi" and get the full details about the card chipset and the driver loaded for it.

All I see after the quote is [0|1]>? The name of the command is lspci. The output should resemble the following examples from 2 different systems:
