Hi, long time Linux user but new Arch user, coming from Debian based installations and scratching my head since I have much to learn with how things are done in Arch based land. I really like what I see but a fresh installation my computer is freezing up on me and I am trying to pin point the issue. My initial thought was to jump in the logs but not much in var/log and I think I am supposed to be using journalctl which I need to read up on.
My symptoms are that the screen stays on but none of the keys are working, even sound freezes, just keeps stuttering. Trying to open a console window via keyboard doesnt work and the only key that appear to keep working is the backlit keyboard key. I have not tried to SSH into and have that on the list to do, any other advice on where to look for the possible issue?
Hardware wise its a Dell 7577 with mostly intel setup, i7-7700 cpu, 16G ram, and nvidia GTX1060 with intel integrated. On installation I did select to install the nvidia drivers but need to check and see which one is being used. Currently using the Deepin DE. This is new hardware so I need to run some hardware diagnostics and make sure that I do not have any hardware issues but I did use it with windows for getting setup etc and never had the issue.
Any suggestions on where to go let me know, I haven’t had this issue with my old laptop running debian based stuff in a long time so I am a little rusty with my troubleshooting. On the positive side I really like what I see so far just need to get things stable. :)
Thanks in advance.
