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

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...

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

Hi,, Several times per day, my machine starts to overheat, I see one of my cores that takes 12-15% of CPU, and only way to stop that is to restart. It can happen with just firefox running !! Using the task manager, I see that the process that does that is KWORKER. I've been looking in the Initernet,...

Re: Launching a program by start that needs «sudo» password

Thank you for your answer !

I had tried that already, but it does not work.
CAUTION! Always use visudo when editing sudoers. Never use a text editor.
Can you explain me why ? And could the fact that when I first tried I did it using a text editor cause the unsuccess ?

Launching a program by start that needs «sudo» password

Hi there,

I run SolydX. And I use a VPN (Airvpn). I would like to be able to launch my VPN at start, but without to have to type my password. I know.

How should I do this ?

Re: darktable, backports repository,

And there were also dependencies. So I chose the Buster way. So far, no problem. I'm not comfortable with compiling series of dependencies. Also could create a conflict, I believe.

Re: darktable, backports repository,

To install darktable 2.4.0 on SolydX 9 : add a repository «debian buster»

URI : http://deb.debian.org/debian/
Distribution : buster
Section(s) . non-free contrib main

Then update, install darktable, and then *disable* the new repository.
