Re: Computer completely freezes once a month

Completely dead does happen. I have had completely dead Linux from a faulty USB device, an incompatible kernel, and "unknown" where a clean reinstall fixed it. You can also get completely dead from SSD, suspend, and network problems where you walk away for a couple of minutes and find the system wa...

Re: Computer completely freezes once a month

So far nothing have crashed. Installing the latest kernel helped. Thanks everyone!
Edit:
Ironically computer crashed the day after. This time there is nothing strange in syslog, also I've tested Alt + SysRq R E I S U B and kernel seemed completely dead. The last thing I did was updating systemd.

Computer completely freezes once a month

About once a month my computer freezes completely - I can't move mouse, restart cinnamon, run console by Ctrl + Alt + F1, nothing works. I checked memory with memtest, and ssd S.M.A.R.T.

Software Manager should warn users about proprietary software

It's hard to distinguish which software is proprietary (can hurt user's freedom) and which is not. Even more, software manager shows proprietary software as a cool thing, that you should install and there is flathub, where free/libre apps are mixed with non-free. I think proprietary software should ...
