Solved: Ubuntu 23.10 freezes

After upgrading Ubuntu to 23.10, we observed that as soon as we login to desktop after power ON / reboot, the system FAN was making lot of noise, and after some time system gets freezed and in few second resulting into complete shutdown.

We tried to identify rootcause, removed some of the unused packages / applications, upgraded the Ubuntu packages also but it didnt solved the problem.

So to check whats causing the FAN noise, we looked into “top” command output by running it as soon as we reboot the laptop and observed that “tracker-miner-fs” was consuming more than 100% CPU.

Solution :

So to avoid running “tracker-miner-fs” resulting higher CPU usage, we used below command to disable its execution

$ sudo chmod -x /usr/libexec/tracker-miner-fs-3
$ sudo chmod -x /usr/libexec/tracker-extract-3
$ sudo chmod -x /usr/libexec/tracker-miner-fs-control-3

With this our Ubuntu got stable and freeze issue got resolved.
