I'm using fedora 25 on dell inspiron 15R,
yesterday I updated some packages including upgrading from kernel 4.8.10 to 4.8.14 .
fedora was working good before the update, but after it all programs randomly freezes for some moments, it's like every minute something freezes for 2 or 3 seconds.
And all programs included chrome, file manager, gnome shell, gedit, network also freezes, sound sometimes freezes....

There is a list of all the packages upgraded yesterday : http://pastebin.com/ThN69qR8
And an output of lspci command : http://pastebin.com/jGR1y9Ui
the linux kernel I'm using is 4.8.14, on gnome with wayland.

things I tried but the problem still exists :

  • Rebooted from the old kernel 4.8.10 .
  • logged in gnome with xorg instead of wayland.
  • logged in KDE .

It's weirdly solved, I found a process called "baloo file extractor" which was taking more than 1.5 G ram, and some large cpu, I terminated it and everything is working good till now.

If anyone have any further information about that process or what I do because this process starts every time I reboot so every time I will have to terminate it.

Also should I report a bug for that ? and where to report it.. thanks in advance.

I would first try to figure it out if the stall could be reproduced without X. For example, play with sound/video or wget a big file to see if there are stalls.
