After a recent update to Fedora 30, which I applied 18th of October, I noticed that the mouse freezes at times and in fact the whole system is unresponsive for a couple of seconds at a time (sometime longer and sometime shorter). Today I thought I’d investigate the issue and I’m seeing abnormal memory usage immediately after booting (see attached htop screenshot taken immediately after booting and loggin in).
This may have started earlier but it wasn’t as noticeable so I’m not sure what could have caused this and since how long the system is using this much memory…
I have tried booting with an earlier kernel (5.2.18) but this did not fix the situation.
Has anyone else encountered this?
The following packages were updated in that 18th of October update:
