Hi. My machine halts on occasion when I play videos, either on youtube, or mplayer ( whatever ) .. and it happens also when I play flash games periodically. I can get the machine to crash if I play more than 2 videos at once ( say in different windows).

fedora26, but this was also happening in fedora25. Thus the upgrade.

Since it is a hard stop, there is no entry in journalctl. on When the machine starts up I do see a message from the GPU .. I will put in a comment after rebooting [ 2.803668] radeon 0000:01:00.0: failed VCE resume (-110).

I suspect the GPU may have an issue since the crashes only happen when vids/flash are involved.

If you are using default Gnome, please try logging in with 'Gnome over Xorg' in the login screen and see if the problem is solved.

I think You can try install official nvidia drivers for Your graphic card.


when I install the newest ( proprietary drivers I can`t use HDMI audio output.

This issue affects many different distributions, I delete the newest driver from nvidia and install old version (340.104).

Sound is working with HDMI output and I think frezzes do not happen anymore. But I do this in manjaro - not fedora.

It is worth a try.

Can You tell my what is the difference in installing drivers between fedora and manjaro? i do not have idea... This issue affects many different distributions. The solution is the same everywhere. What do you not understand?

The steps needed to install drivers on different distros are not going to be the same, so by not providing more information, you are not really helping.

If the driver uses dkms; I can't see differences... But man, here is place Fedora, others dependencies...

@steveebey73742 Of course, the driver installation is the same everywhere. Shame on you now? @davidva what kinds of dependencies? You have to just download nvidia drivers from official nvidia site and run script. Where is diferences between distros? 0.o I have to write how install driver now? Google does not hurt just google it man! You are smart!
