Ive been recently getting some plasma crashes that causes several apps that im using to crash all at once. Say im talking on discord and then go to firefox, then when im ready to go to back to discord, i find out that the entirety of plasmashell, discord and even other apps im using have outright crashed and dont respond, making me have to force quit them and restart them, sometimes even losing progress in whatever app im in. I have looked at some of the lines of the error in yakuake and it has some kio core lines and crashes, im unsure what the error roots from as its entirely software, and im not even sure if its solely a 5.18.5 issue or not as i cant really manage to search it on my own
First of all, have you updated your system yet? There was a major update only a few days ago.
Secondly, what kernel are you using, and what graphics driver? Please post the output of the following command.
I should have mentioned im on testing, and everything i have is completely up to date. Here is the output, and im on kernel 5.6.15, eventually going to be on 5.7 once i reboot. And if it matters i have been using xrender under compositor, and am currently seeing if it acts the say under opengl 3.1

I'll amend the thread title then.
Well, that might make a difference, because you're using an in-kernel graphics driver.
XRender does all of its compositing in software. OpenGL employs hardware-assisted compositing, so that would always be the better choice. Your graphics processor should be able to handle it.
Alright, just rebooted, i guess ill update whether or not it happens again, which may be a while if it does.
Please don't report issues if you haven't rebooted after a major update like that.
You can use
needrestart to help you see what services need to be restarted and which proceses are running out of date binaries.
This isnt an issue that happened before i rebooted, its a recurring issue that happens 3 times a day when using xrender, it doesnt happen on opengl. I only just installed kernel 5.7 last night and hadnt rebooted yet
So, update, it has not crashed at all today, so the issue has been xrender this entire time, though now i hae screen tearing when scrolling in some apps again, guess its better than plasma crashing.
quick edit: If your using KDE plasma and experience plasmashell crashes, try changing the compositor settings a little
