Not sure where else to post this as I cannot see it mentioned anywhere else which makes me feel uneasy that is just me, but it is very repeatable so.
The Scenario is this. When starting Gnome in Xorg or Wayland. After the screen saver cuts in I subsequentially get ‘pauses’ of about 1-2 seconds every minute or several. So. It is not perfectly regular but very noticeable. In Xorg the entire screen freezes and all input freezes. The extensions like system-montor and simple-Networkspeed don’t update. This happens for about a second or so and then resumes.
Under Wayland it is slightly different. The input never freezes, but the keyboard seems to buffer key strokes so if I am typing "This is a bug"it will appear as “This issssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss a bug” or any letter I am typing at the time.
I have combed through dmesg to see if there is anything there but nada. So I thought I would see if the same thing happened with Plasma and Wayland or Plasma and Xorg. No it does not. So I feel it is specific to the Gnome framework but I am unsure about how to go about debugging it.
For the record the system is.
Tuxedo Pulse 15 with AMD Ryzen 7 4800H with Radeon Graphics. 64Gb Memory (3200 Mhz)
Debian 10 (testing)
Linux 5.10.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.19-1 (2021-03-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Thoughts anyone? Has anyone else experienced something similar. There’s a lot of stuff in user.log I don’t know way does might the answer be hidden there?
