• Antergos HANGS itself every one/two days


    Good morning! I have come across another problem while using Antergos. This problem has existed for a long time but I haven’t really brought it up in the forums here and it’s a bit peculiar.

    The system hangs itself ALL OF A SUDDEN without any warning or anything. When Antergos hangs, none of the keys work, mouse doesn’t work, nothing works. Only my power button works in such situations. So I would be forced to hard shutdown and reboot my system. Also the CAPS-LOCK key will be blinking continuously when my system hangs. Before it used to happen like once in a week but now it happens almost once in 1 or 2 days. It is becoming more often.

    This is problematic for me as I would be doing important work like taking online college tests. I can take the test only once and they won’t give retest or anything like that. So far, I have used my Antergos in college seminars and presentations and nothing bad has happened. But it if ever happened at a crucial moment like tests, giving presentations or whatnot…I shudder at the possibility of it. I am concerned about the reliability of Antergos.

    Any ideas of how to stop this?

  • @Quantum_Sniper Sounds more like hardware than software to me, I assume you’re using an SSD so that may be freezing? I’ve read reports of people switching BIOS from AHCI to IDE to solve it but it slows it down so my guess is their reports may have been due to failing SSD’s. Coincidentally I threw one of mine in the bin 2 days ago coz it completely froze while dd’ing to it!

  • @robgriff444 Sorry to hear about your SSD. I use 1TB HDD which was there by default in the laptop. Bought my laptop Dell Inspiron 15 about 3 years ago and I consider it as not old (I am going to use my lappy until it dies).

  • Is it happening when you leave the computer sit idle for a while? Do you have a swap partition? Can you run any diagnostic testing on the HDD to see if its failing?

  • @j-goguen Hi! The system can hang at any time and there’s no way to predict it. The system definitely does not hang when it is left idle. In fact I feel that Antergos is best at this, you can go out and come back and resume your work as it is. But in general, I can’t tell when the system hangs. For example, today morning the system hung and I had to shut it down. Pissed me off a lot.

    I have made a swap partition of FAT32 format of size 2 GB. I haven’t run any diagnostic testing on Antergos. But I have done it on my Windows 10 partition and it said my HDD was working normal. I did disk defragmentation on my C-Drive and other drives and there was no problem. I am expecting my Linux drive to also by working normally.

  • @Quantum_Sniper Can you watch swap in htop or something to see if it’s running out?

  • @robgriff444 hi. I didn’t find any problem with swap. In fact, swap is not used at all.

    What’s AHCI and IDE? Some kind of protocol?

  • Advanced Host Controller Interface is the successor to IDE. It includes hot swap and advanced control. It’s a drive mode so yes I guess it would be right to call it a protocol. SATA is the successor to PATA (Serial v Parallel) and dictates more the cable and the controller.

  • @Quantum_Sniper
    You need information to go debugging and see what is happening on your machine. For this reason, please, paste here the results of:

    $ dmesg
    
    $ journalctl -p 3 -xb -1
    
    $ journalctl -b 1
    
    $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    
    $ inxi -Fxxx0

    fat32 is not possible because filesystem is swap ;)

  • @joekamprad My bad. It’s actually the filesystem of the Boot partition. Mixed it up…lol

    Uff, I did not see it, I missed that grrr!

  • @judd Yes, yes, sorry. I was about to post it but it said that the post was too huge. So I am doing it one by one. Just give me a min.
