Hi i started using manjaro yesterday since i had to move away from win11 for a while. I rlly been thinking since i installed it and some few games [Ported using Wine Loader] And Discord i have a 6gb ram and a core i3-3240 and a [Built In Intel Graphics GPU]. After Using it For A Day I Notice When I tired To Run A Game Alongside In Call In Discord The Game usualy Crashed first before the Entire OS Crash. They All run Better On Win11 Before [Like: I can play while in a vc with my friends without a lag (Using the same spec of computer)] After the OS Crashing I Had to restart it every time, The Os sometimes crashes in middle of a file transfer and idk why. I Had my Video Driver Installed As AutoDetect Open Source Since Idk what those stand for so i usualy let it default I have 6gb ram and i expect it to run smoother but it slower and sometimes crashes.It would be a big help to like get introduced to the how big can this draw from the ram etc etc. I am pretty much noob at this kind of stuff and get to know more information about it
That is sufficient for KDE to perform nicely. Provide basic Information:
I recommend activating a swapfile, it helps in system stability if there isnt enough RAM
Do you have a swap space activated?
Let’s see, write this command in the terminal:
You will get something like this:
total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 7.5G 5.8G 365M 726M 1.4G 787M Swap: 14G 1.1G 13G
Where 14G is the total space reserved for swap, if you don’t get swap row in the output, it means you don’t have swap
Another alternative way for doing is:
cat /proc/swaps OR swapon -s
In my case I have this:
Filename Type Size Used Priority /swapfile file 4194300 0 -2 cat: OR: No such file or directory cat: swapon: No such file or directory
The size is measure in kb, but what is important is the type or swapfile, which in my case is swapfile
If for some reason you don’t have one, please read this tutorial:
You may choose between a swap partition or swapfile. Also I recommend tunning swappiness
Adding to what others already mentioned, you should avoid unnecessary widgets.
You should also investigate the reason for the crashes. After rebooting from a crash, get the output of
journalctl -p3 -b-1 or
journalctl -xe -b-1.
It isn’t normal for the system to crash during a transfer. Maybe the the system is not crashed and you’re not waiting enough. If you have default cash settings, and depending on the IO scheduler, this can happen. So, when the system looks frozen, try to change TTY with CTRL+ALT+F2 to see if it responds. The you can go back with CTRL+ALT+F1 (or +F7 if +F1 doesn’t take you back). If you change to TTY2 successfully, you can login as root and investigate what’s going on with
free, for example.
This will probably take some time to figure out.
