Hi all, finally I got my XPS 13 DE / i7 / 8 GB.
Arch linux installed, and I got a full system freeze with few apps.
Reboot with power button and I add system monitor to see how memory used.
I found that Google chrome(with few gmail tabs or long usage), PhpStorm, atom, skype betta - can
reach memory limit(last I see on system monitor - 7.7G) and freeze.
Like en.community.dell.com/.../ described - I update my system.
I update it almost every day. But no result.
Then I found somewhere that it could be BIOS. I follow Wiki and update BIOS for arch linux.
And with first boot after that - was just perfect:
I run PhpStorm, WebStorm, Google chrome with 40 tabs + mail tabs, Atom IDE, VCode IDE and many other stuff - result
My memory was near 7.4 and NO any freezes for hole day.
I was happy till reboot.
On next day - I turn on my laptop and I see memory issues again, again I can reach limit and get freeze.
Please, If you can help me message me. Please ask me any logs, configuration...
Hi. Are you sure that it's a memory related issues? Have you tried to use swap? I have same looking freezes on Linux >= 4.10
What version of kernel do you have?
Have you tried to ping your laptop when it freezes?
I'm not sure that this is memory issue
1) I don't use swap
2)kernel version: $ uname -r
3) ping. I think that it will be possible, because even music continue playing(but with interruptions) when all windows and apps in freeze.
Monitor screenshot: drive.google.com/open
In this status - no sound , cursor can move but with delay in 30 seconds and veeeery slowly, clicks not fired.
That's the freezing for me
Any arch linux users ?
