Hi there.

On my laptop Plasmashell crashes very often, sometimes 2 or 3 times within one hour. Kill and restart plasmashell helps, but this is so annoying. This started last year but only rare. It became worse somewhen this month

Current package: kde-frameworks/plasma-5.29.0 (since Jan. 19. Before 5.26.0, which also crashed, if I recall correctly).

I've searched the net for tips but none helped so far:
- clear "~/.cache"
- switch compositor (OpenGL 2.0 vs. 3.1)
- try other xorg-server (happens with both 1.18.4 and 1.19.1)

Code:
# lspci
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)


Code:
# glxinfo | grep -i vendor
server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
    Vendor: Intel Open Source Technology Center (0x8086)
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center


emerge --info: http://pastebin.com/QnRyw2nH

Anybody got an idea? Any help appreciated.

Probably something went wrong at some xf86-video-intel snapshot. You should definitely check dmesg for errors and maybe switch to modeset driver instead. Even Intel devs seem to recommend that now...

Danke, asturm.

Checked dmesg and indeed I get the same error multiple times. Have no idea if this is related.

Code:
# dmesg
mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged

Code:

# mcelog --client
mcelog: client connect: No such file or directory
mcelog: client command write: Transport endpoint is not connected
mcelog: client read: Invalid argument
mcelog: client connect: No such file or directory
mcelog: client command write: Transport endpoint is not connected
mcelog: client read: Invalid argument


I'll try modeset driver. I just need to figure out, how to. Don't worry, the search engine is my friend...

No crashes with modeset driver so far. Problem seems to be solved.

Thanks again, asturm.
