I experienced daily random freezes since the last update. I am using stable Gnome 40.1.0 apps with the 3.38 shell on Xorg. Under the hood I have an AMD Ryzen 5 3400G/Picasso using the
amdgpu driver on the 5.10.36-2-MANJARO kernel. @Orognad helped me solve the problem. They suggested:
adding amdgpu.noretry=0 to your grub file (etc/default/grub at the end of the line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=" default text amdgpu.noretry=0" then in console: sudo update-grub and restart).
I did as they suggested, turned on a few extensions and I have not experienced a freeze.
Gnome Pomodoro extension does not work smoothly, so I have turned it off. Thank you for everyone’s suggestions and help.
