    System freezing, unable to localize

    Hello everyone,

    Thank you in advance for reading this.

    The other day, I reformatted my Win11pro C: drive to a full install of ubuntu desktop 24.04, and the process went smoothly. However, since then, my system has been randomly freezing and rebooting. Sometimes while I'm at the system, sometimes when I'm out of the room or sleeping. (Screensaver disabled.)

    My system is a Minisforum HX90 mini pc: AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, 32GB RAM, 1TB M.2 NVMe boot, 2x 1TB SSD, ZFS chosen during the install.

    The freezing seems to be happening without rhyme or reason, lightweight loads of mainly youtube and other research on firefox (125.0.2) and using VLC (3.0.20) for background music. I am also using PIA (v3.5.7) as a VPN. Connected via wi-fi, bt for speaker, mouse/kbd are usb wired. Nothing exotic or fancy.

    The default system monitor and snap installed psensor do not show any resource challenges or heat issues. I used the boot option memtest to check my ram (it passed, no faults found).

    I don't know where to find relevant logs, or even if I need to initiate log generation. I don't know what to check next. I'd appreciate ideas.

    Thank you,
    JJ

    sudo dmesg -wHT

    tail -f /var/log/syslog

    htop and look for misbehaving processes
