I’ve been having trouble with my Manjaro installation randomly freezing and crashing, and was hoping someone might be able to help me determine what is going on.
First, here’s the output of

Brief description of problem:
I’m experiencing frequent crashing of web browsers (Firefox and Chromium). When a browser crashes, it destabilizes the whole system - i.e., other programs subsequently crash or refuse to open unless I reboot the system first. Once a crash occurs, it seems Plasma is non-functional and unable to recover until after the reboot. I’ve tried restarting Plasma with
$kquitapp5 plasmashell && kstart5 plasmashell
but this is ineffective and usually leads to a freeze when I try to reboot the system later.
Error Log Output:
This is my first time really diving into any error logs. I’m not sure what’s relevant.
It seems multiple types of errors precipitate the crashes. Here are a few examples:
kernel NULL pointer dereference
PCIe Bus Timeout error: PCI bridge: [AMD] Raven/Raven2 PCIe GPP Bridge [6:0]
BUG: Bad rss-counter state
BUG: Bad page cache in process Xorg
And finally, sometimes processes just generate coredumps with no obvious preceding errors.
I can post specific examples of error logs if that will be helpful.
What I have already attempted:
- I’ve tried kernels 5.4, 5.7, and 5.8; they all present the issue.
- I’ve tried Nvidia proprietary driver series 430xx and 440xx; the issue persists.
- I’ve run Prime95 successfully for over four hours to rule out any obvious hardware instabilities.
I sincerely thank you in advance for your time and any help or insight you can give.
