Random, brief system hangs
Once every hour to two hours, an application will randomly just freeze for about 3-4 seconds. It's really noticeable with the web browser and my media player since I use those the most. However, it's usually just one application. And the mouse still works.
I was running Arch Linux until about a week ago and it had the same problem.
I was thinking that systemd could be a common denominator, but that is just speculation.
Really though, I'd really like this not to be a hardware issue... Currently / is on an SSD and /home is on a hard drive. If it were a hardware failure, I would think the most obvious part to blame would be the SSD since all of my programs run on it.
I was considering installing DSL on the hard drive and running that for a while to test out the SSD and systemd hypotheses, but I would like to avoid doing that before asking the forum's opinion.
Has anyone encountered this? What are your opinions on what to blame?
