Hello. I am having an odd problem where my system freezes for ~0.5s and then works for ~0.5s. This results in mouse movements only registering in that ~0.5s gap, however keyboard strokes are just delayed and still come through afterwards. Everything is affected, and videos will also freeze.
I have tried “# perf record -g -a sleep 10 && perf record” and i got this output: https://pastebin.com/raw/6hX2zuNY. This started happening about an hour ago out of nowhere. I recently reinstalled Manjaro, but i had no troubles after doing so until now. I have also completely shut off my computer twice to no avail. It also happens on the login screen, but not if type in the terminal in Ctrl+Alt+F2 for example.
Edit: I am using xfce but i tried out Plasma and it also freezes there.
Edit2: Audio does not freeze. “$ pkill pulseaudio” did stop the audio, but the rest still freezes.
Edit3: I am using an Asus GTX 1070 6GB, and removing the proprietary nvidia driver fixed the issue. If i dont update this post, consider it fixed.
Edit4: The free driver has poor performance, however. Id appreciate any help to fix the proprietary nvidia driver.
