I’ve been a happy Fedora user for a few years but I am now encountering many problems with that distro since I upgraded to fedora 34 a few months ago.
Since the latest upgrade, my laptop keeps getting completely frozen and I have to use the physical button to power it off and reboot.
Detailed symptoms: when I wake it up from sleep mode, I have to enter my password twice, the first attempt is always marked as a wrong password. Then in about 50% of cases the UI gets frozen right after the screen is unlocked. And when it doesn’t happen at that point, then it will ultimately freeze if I keep using the laptop for a while (let’s say about 45mn).
A couple of weeks ago, I did a complete clean re-install of the system (even using the new BTRFS default) but that didn’t help.
Does anyone has a similar experience? Suggestions?
I have no idea whether this is due to fedora or to gnome 40 but it crashes all the time! If I can’t fix that problem I will sadly have to move to another distro.
