@melmarker, I appreciate your so enormously helpful remark and respect your wish, otherwise this answer would be different ...

~/.xsession-errors and /var/log/Xorg.log.0 say nothing during such a "freese".

I don't know if this helps at all, as the problem is not with my siduction system, but with my aptosid one, but I have had the same problem for a while and had reported it in the aptosid forum (as linked above).  (Since I had this problems, I am holding on DUIing my siduction system.)

Anyway, here is the system info:

Code: [Select]

(No Nvidia/nouveau in this one.)

I have to remember exactly when X.Org 1.19.0 came out,, going to install an older build for now on some secondary machines as there is no ati/amd blob for my video card (old)

Did this work for you ?

Before the purge, I had less then 2 minutes before it froze, I have tested this on 3 total builds of kde, it worked on all, latest build is the one I installed (201701010034)

Yes Piper - mine would freeze that often so if I'm not calling this a fix I am fervently hoping it is. I couldn't "force" it to freeze, but just opening windows would do it, as well as just allowing it to sit. I couldn't find anything searching, and I had forgotten this post.

I've done a number of things since trying your fix - there is no way I'd be typing this before, it would have frozen long ago. Thanks again!

Ok great  !

Glad it worked, my box was totally unusable before this.

That's very strange...  My work system with Intel video is freezing.  (See above: it's running aptosid, not siduction.)  I can't try the fix now, as I am off work, but it seems unlikely to me that this would work on that system.

By the way, the freezes seem very random to me.  I've had a few whole days without any freezes, and then, randomly, it would freeze again.

But I will definitely try it!  Thanks for sharing.

You could try

Code: [Select]
apt remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon xserver-xorg-video-intel

Remember to reboot

If it doesn't do a thing, you can always reinstall them
