For the third time my KDE Plasma Workspace has failed during the
post-installation software update. On the third occasion (but not the other
2) it managed to display an error dialogue box, though I could not send a
bug report directly since the system hang had disabled the mouse and
keyboard. However, the dialogue box contained some information which may be
of use to you:
"Plasma closed Unexpectedly"
"Executable: plasmashell (deleted) PID: 2204 Signal: Segmentation fault
(11)" [followed by the date and time]
What updates were you installing at the time?
[The software update (comprising 696 items) was about 75% complete
according to the progress bar, and was well into the installation phase. My
system is based on an Intel Core I7-3770K CPU and a UEFI 'BIOS', running
the 64-bit version of F22. It is not dual-booted (I run Windows most of the
time - such as now - but had hoped to run LINUX on separate disks).]
I would be delighted to run KDE Plasma Workspace, but I can't afford to
waste any more time repeatedly installing it: if you can't produce software
stable enough actually to install successfully, I'm surprised anyone is
able to use it.
I usually see this happen if I'm low on free RAM (not swap space, just RAM)
and it doesn't require a re-install, just a restart. I'm a very heavy
user, and I tend to push my system to its limits, but re-installing every
time I saw this would be silly.
