strange problem with plasma unresponsive (mostly) 18 November 2018, 00:10:37 The problem is a laptop I don't use too often (meaning I really don't know which update seemed to cause this) After a recent update, plasma (started by sddm) was essentially unresponsive. Clicking on things had no effect, but switching to a text console and back would update the screen (gkrellm, for example.) At first, I blamed baloo_file_extractor, which iotop said was using 99% of the io. However, after multiple tries and reboots, I got that to no longer run, and top shows over 90% idle, but plasma is still essentially unresponsive. Sometimes clicking on an app (konsole, for example) and on the background updates the screen, but running top, for example ONLY updates when I click off and then back on konsole. I see nothing unusal in dmesg, /var/log/messages.log, or /var/log/Xorg.0.log.ssh'ing in to the box works ok, and everything in one of the text colsoles works fine also.I'm fully up to date - using gremlins, system, world, galaxy-gremlins, galaxy, extra, and community. The only odd thing is that openrc 0.39.1-1 was newer than system 0.38.3-1. I can only assume that was temporarily on gremlins and later pulled? 0.39.1 is also in the cache. Reverting to 0.38.3-1 didn't make any difference.Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?
