Just a FYI my temporary fix to restart Xorg after switching tty:
kill -9 `ps a | grep "Xorg :0" | grep -v "grep" | cut -f1 -d" "`
Just to force Xorg and related processes to restart. There might be a better way, but at least it works and I don’t lose my work
@joekamprad Odd, I followed https://forum.antergos.com/topic/1335/how-to-include-system-logs-when-asking-for-help/2 and tried to attach the tar file directly to the post, guess it didn’t work.
Uploaded the Xorg and Xsession logs here: https://transfer.sh/XQmf8/logs.tar
Been using Antergos for a few good months now, love everything about it.
One odd thing that started happening recently, yet not consistently, is a blackscreen after suspending the system.
When it happens, I’m able to switch TTYs using CTRL+ALT+F1/F2/F… etc. That lead me to assuming the problem is with xorg, or alternatively, with xsession.
egrep '\((EE|WW)\)'from the xorg logs, finding consistent errors regarding module “intel” and module “synaptics”, alongside some warnings. I’ve attached the logs for further check-ups.
Would appreciate any insights, it’s such a hassle having to reboot after every suspension, losing a lot of my work.
Thank you! I think that should be incorporated into the wiki for future help :)
I almost broke my grub trying to experiment with different options…
Either way, the
intel_idle.max_cstateseems to resolve the issue indeed (took a few days to verify that it doesn’t freeze under different workloads).
It’s weird that it started happening randomly, but I guess such is life ;)
No I can’t - they’re all for projects and/or work, and require those specific versions unfortunately :(
However, I did use @joekamprad’s link and the first attempt, using
20-intel.confjust crashed X and wouldn’t let me boot (luckily, commandline was still available after spawning another tty, and I could revert the changes and boot again).
It took me a while where to set
intel_idle.max_cstate=1(that could use some clarifying up in the wiki perhaps); after setting it in grub and booting, it seems fine at least for the last couple of hours.
Will report back if it remains stable or continues to freeze.
First off, would like to thank the development community, Antergos is great, I love it :)
Recently, however, it seems to randomly freeze, entirely. The mouse/keyboard/screen stop responding, and I’m left with only the hard-reset option.
I’ve scrolled around the different forums here but none of the solutions worked for me.
Furthermore, I couldn’t find any hints in journalctl, etc, but I’m attaching the logs as instructed in the pinned post.
This makes working on Antergos almost inviable at the moment, and is quite frustrating :(
Would appreciate some help, thanks :)
