Upon hearing about blender’s better performances on linux distros I switched to linux (Pop!OS) a few months ago.
The problem that I’ve been encountering is that when blender crashes the whole system stops responding with it, when that happened in windows I could go to task manager and kill blender, or just Ctrl +Alt+Del but that isn’t possible in linux (can’t open system monitor since everything has stopped responding).
These specifically hangs/crashes occur when I switch to rendered view or while working on heavy scenes.
The only way out of this is to plug out the power and restart though I’m afraid in the long run it might damage my PC.
Is this problem only distros specific or pertains in other versions as well?
Is there any fix you’d like to suggest for this?
