Manjaro KDE (Kernel 6.4.6-1) – issues fixed by disabling fTPM

by on Aug.02, 2023, under Linux, Techie

For a while now (since a kernel update back when I was still on an LTS) I will randomly have apps “hang” when opening or the icon show it’s open on the taskbar while it has closed from the screen. Sometimes it happened a lot, and other times not at all. I couldn’t find any solution and all the hardware tested good.

Recently I found about out about the issue with Kernels after 6.1 experiencing stutter because of the AMD Ryzen fTPM (Bug 216989).

After turning off the fTPM in my BIOS I so far have not had any of these issues anymore!

In many causes this can be found under Security > Trusted Computing: “Security Device Support” set to Disabled will completely disable TPM. There are other options if you just want to turn of fTPM but support a hardware TPM.
