I’ve been getting a hard freeze the last couple of weeks that I can’t get rid of. I’ve tried PopOS, Fedora, Ubuntu LTS, nvidia drivers 470,515,515, steam native, steam beta and flatpak, older laptop BIOS, external screen, still I see the issue
basically I launch steam using the dedicated nvidia GPU, the hard freeze mostly happens when launching a game, at “compiling vulkan shaders” but can sometimes happen just in the steam menu, ingame ~10mins or after exiting the game.
The issue does not happen when using AMD Vega iGPU, I also could not make the issue happen using a basic Lutris game or unigine benchmark
my laptop is only 6 months old so I am highly doubting this is a physical hardware issue as this (fallen off the bus) error can sometimes suggest.
ubuntu 22.04 LTS
