[SOLVED] PC Crashed By Itself

I have a brand new PC, just 2 days old, with a brand new Arch install with Xfce. I left it alone for an hour today and came back and it was off.

Here is the journalctl output from today https://pastebin.com/i5RU4h2L

Anything look odd?

Re: [SOLVED] PC Crashed By Itself

Your screensaver is segfaulting, presumably because it is misconfigured.

Re: [SOLVED] PC Crashed By Itself

@jasonwryan that is the only thing I see as well but that was three boots and sixteen hours before the journal ends which presumably is when the crash occurred.
Edit:
journal seems to cover a period of four boots excluding the start of the first and the end of the last

Re: [SOLVED] PC Crashed By Itself

That sort of makes sense as it was indeed running. It's xscreensaver as you can see and I hadn't configured it but I wouldn't think that is cause for it to segfault. I changed the settings now via the GUI but did you have something else in mind that I am supposed to configure?

Thank you.

Disable it and see if it is indeed the issue.

Re: [SOLVED] PC Crashed By Itself

Suspiciously, the log ends pretty much 1h after xfce4-power-manager started.
Ensure the thing isn't just configured to powerdown/suspend/hibernate after such delay.

Do you think I am so stupid as to leave a power-down setting on like that on a desktop?

Well I am it seems. smile

It was indeed set to shut down after 15 min. I guess I didn't let it sit alone that long until then.

Thank you!
