Finally ! fix random system freeze by installing manjaro-pipewire


Finally, I was able to have no more random system freeze by installing manjaro-pipewire.

I suspected having problem with sound driver because some freezes happens instantly after receiving notification from random applications

make sure to enable hardware acceleration in your browser (this alone didnt fix my issue)

I have swap with hibernation activated in installation. gnome minimal

cpu and gpu are amd, open source drivers
