Hello everybody, this isn’t exactly a deal-breaker for me, but is quite annoying. I’m running a DIY edition using an SSD, 8 GB RAM stick, and WiFi card from my previous laptop. On the SSD is a dual-boot Windows 10/Fedora setup, and I upgraded from Fedora 34 to 35 as soon as I turned on the Framework for the first time.
I usually have Brave and Discord running concurrently, as I’ve did on my old laptop without any problems. However, ever since getting the Framework and upgrading the OS, I’ll frequently have individual Browser tabs + Honey and Metamask extensions crash along with Discord. The way it always plays out is: I’ll restart my computer or turn it on, use it for a few hours, then I get a notification that a tab has crashed. As I continue using the laptop without restarting, I get more and more tabs crashing. Eventually, Metamask and Honey will crash around 15 minutes after reloading them. Discord crashes every so often in addition, sometimes simultaneously with a crash from Brave.
(On a side note: also experienced freezing and crashing with VSCode when I was working on a project for college. Other than that, haven’t been using any other applications.)
The crash reports always show Brave encountering a SIGSEGV and Discord encountering a ‘SIGILL’. Additionally, it appears I’m also receiving crash reports from the kernel but they lack detail. If anyone needs me to show some crash reports to see exactly what’s going on, I’d be glad to post screenshots.
So far, I’ve tried disabling hardware acceleration on Brave, and switching from Wayland to Xorg, neither of which have helped. I’ve tried disabling extensions. Haven’t been real thorough with this admittedly, but I’ve a feeling Metamask might be a source of the problem somehow. How it might affect Discord is beyond me, however.
Also ran memtest86 to see if it was an issue with my RAM. I’m no expert, but I did get a big green ‘PASS’ at the end, so I’m pretty sure RAM issues are ruled out.
Way I see it, could be some kind of compatibility issue with my SSD and Framework, some update with Fedora 35 that doesn’t jibe too well with these applications, or maybe some setting on both applications that’s causing issues. I’d be grateful to anyone who can help me solve this.
