Upgrading from 18.0.5-1 to 18.1.1-1 a couple of days ago seems to have made my system very unreliable (random hard / complete / : not a , nothing in logs, mouse pointer not operational, numlock not operational, must hold down the power button for a few seconds to halt).

Currently on 18.1.2-1 and no freeze so far, but uptime is only 19min at this point.

Using the free/libre driver for RX 580 graphics card, with 7 2700x cpu.

just froze again and had to power cycle, only 2h16m36s uptime :( some of the things I want to run have an estimated runtime of 20h wall-clock minimum, so not happening with this mess :(

not even 100% sure it is a mesa issue, because of the lack of info in logs. this is super frustrating :(

to test the mesa hypothesis, I'll stop X on the desktop and try running the long-running job from text mode console.

uptime over 15 hours without X running. not proof, but does make me more confident that mesa and/or amdgpu driver is somehow to blame for my system freezes.
