Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

My problem evolves. Right now, I have a Kworker- process that hogs my processors, but with a clue ; «kworker/0:3 kacpi_notifiy», instead of the usual «kworker:0». Is really a clue ?

Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

I have now the same Liquorix Kernel as Ilu. 4.18.0-16.1-liquorix-amd64.

Question : should still have the «echo 10000 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs» active, or not ?

Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

bpo = backports
Ho ... :) I could have guessed that by myself ....

But I can't stay by 4.9.17. It won't allow Thunderbird to launch.

So I'm back with 4.9.08, and I have one or two incidents pro day. Bugger.

Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

I seem to have progress... To sum up : up to there, I had done this : sudo pluma /etc/sysctl.conf add vm.swappiness=20 vm.dirty_writeback_centisecs=1000 and then this : sudo pluma /etc/default/grub add after «quiet splash» : intel_pstate=disable then sudo update-grub It had helped, but then I had th...

Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

2. disable pstate driver. you can do it by adding "intel_pstate=disable" on your boot parameter.
I have just done this. Will tell if it helps.

Code: Select all

cat /proc/cmdlineult/grub
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-4.9.0-8-amd64 root=UUID=7b591726-02bc-4c39-877f-45a3eab4a689 ro quiet splash intel_pstate=disable

Re: [solved !!] kworker is killing my machine ...

The beast lives. Suddenly, since yesterday, I have the same symptoms again. Real bad. I had just reinstalled my system (4 or 5 days ago), but I don't think it is related.

Re: Thunderbird 60.0 : can't get to send Thunderbird in the tray

Thunderbird 60.0 : can't get to send Thunderbird in the tray [SOLVED]

I have had, for years, in Thunderbird the possibility to send Thunderbird in the tray (SolydX). I can't any more. I can't find where to configure this. This is annoying.

All the rest just works. :)

Re: kworker is killing my machine ...

As it is, since I made what you suggested with the /etc/sysctl.conf file and added vm.swappiness=20 vm.dirty_writeback_centisecs=1000 I haven't had the dreaded symptoms (one of my cores at full capacity and my machine overheating >95°C, and the culprit designed my the task manager as «kworker»).

Re: kworker is killing my machine ...

Thank you for taking the time to help ! Problem is that I'm just a user, and I have actually no idea what you are talking about. :( So : what is involved in «installing irqbalance ? The package «irqbalance» is already installed. Is there anything I should do ? Where should write a boot parameter ? I...
