I’ve been using Budgie as my daily driver for some time now and I’m lovin’ it. As a Linux beginner, it really is an approachable distro.
However, I’ve recently come across a stupid issue of random freezes here and there. Well, at first I thought that it was solely connected to watching videos and/or hardware acceleration, since it 99% of times happened while watching YouTube or videos from other platforms.
However, I was working on my PC today and it froze again while doing nothing related to videos. I also turned off hardware acceleration in both Brave (Chromium) and Firefox, but didn’t help with freezes that happen when videos play.
So, my question is:
How to debug it?
I tried looking at logs, but I’m a Linux beginner and I can’t figure out if anything’s wrong.
How to fix it?
I have this intuition that it is somehow connected either to the graphics card (NVidia) or the RAM, or maybe even with sudden temperature rise during CPU/GPU peaks, but can’t quite nail it.
What do you suggest?
