these are the last few lines in there, no errors or whatsoever. the first line is happening a whole lot more, i just cut it for the copy paste’s sake… i find the sata link message weird, because of usbguard did not register any changes in that timeframe (for those that do not know what that is, it basically rejects and/or drops new usb devices)
here’s my inxi

Switch to another kernel, LTS or Linux-zen.

So far I have had 5 friends in real life with freezes in connection with the 6.5.13-hardened1-1-hardened. I can reproduce the problem on 3 of my machines (AMD/AMD/Arch/KDE, AMD/AMD/LMC and INTEL/NVIDIA/GARUDA). All of them freeze, mostly with Firefox, Librewolf and TorBrowser. None of the systems provide usable logs, it looks like kernel panic. These reports are piling up online, and someone in the EOS forum is also affected.

it just happened again, so basically switch to a different kernel until there is a update of the hardened kernel?

Yes, switch to a different kernel for now.

I don’t know what’s causing the freezes with 6.5.13-hardened1-1-hardened. I had 5 people with the same problem last week, the only thing they had in common was upgrading to version 6.5.13. With 2, the freezes came randomly, sometimes when idle and sometimes with different applications - with 3 only when surfing. Due to lack of time, I only tested it briefly on my machines and only with Firefox-based browsers - all systems end in a total freeze. LTS and ZEN work without any problems.

EDIT: I currently don’t have time to debug multiple machines to narrow down the cause or compare the patches of 6.5.12-hardened with 6.5.13-hardened.

If you don’t want another kernel, you can downgrading to 6.5.12-hardened1-1-hardened.

Rinse, repeat. Is there?

I just ran the new 6.5.13-hardened2-1-hardened as a test, for 2 hours without a freeze. You can test it on your own.

EDIT: 24 hours without problems - so the error should be fixed.
