I have been using CachyOS for more than 6 months at this point and I’m pretty happy with it. Among the many distros I tried, this is probably my favourite arch based distro. I initially installed it because it offered Hyprland desktop, and I didn’t want to bring over my messy config nor did I want to start from scratch. But sometimes when I want to game or when I wake up my computer from sleep the display would just keep blacking out and won’t let me use it until I restart the computer (I am using an AMD GPU btw). This issue has been happening on Plamsa 6, and Gnome as well. I have tried various fixes from the ArchWiki but it’s still there. Other than that I really liked the Distro.

It’s not like changing distros can solve my moitor blacking out problem, but I’m going to try something based on Silverblue for a change. Yes, I have tried the Ublue project in the past, it was good but I couldn’t get into the whole immutable thing back then, so I hopped back to my staple Arch/Tumbleweed and carried on. Fast forward to today… I’m thinking about trying Bazzite or Aurora as the idea of having a low maintenance system is now very appealing to me.

I’m not necessarily a hardcore gamer but I do play games every other day and also run some LLMs locally every now and then. I’m not sure which one I should go for between Bazzite and Aurora. Maybe someone who has run both can give their opinion.

    If your problem seems to be the one I’m thinking about use this answer from askubuntu.com

    I just switch to silverblue yesterday and first that seems to be really cool. I’m really a fan of fedora and this immuable one is really nice. But with this particularly you couldn’t use the answer shown above (in fact some devices are authorized to wake up the device so it’s why it auto-reboot), because you could change anything in /usr I’m actually trying to find a way to resolve it but for now I couldn’t find… Tell you more once found! 🤞
