It mostly happens when I am watching videos on YouTube, on Chrome/ium. I am very confused to see my system crashing, since it has never happened. It does not seem that my system is overheating but I have seen other people having issues with kswapd0 hitting 99%/100% CPU usage, but I haven't been able to check as the crash happens without warning. The only way to reboot is to use the refresh + power buttons. I have tried running top -d 1 to see, after running I have also typed in COMMAND=kswapd but I see no unusual activity. I have also checked using the command free, I have gotten no results. I am completely stumped at what to do and I need help.

Firmware: Mr. Chromebox's Full ROM (UEFI) firmware.
Install method: Via complete ISO download.

I've also been using galliumos for almost 2 years on my dell CANDY without problems. I installed UEFI firmware just a few days ago with a new galliumos install. I had no problems with Fedora before this. Gallium has crashed on me a few times since I've setup this new install with the latest updates. I have no way of getting a log out of these crashes. Must be a new galliumos update. Hoping something will come of this ticket..

Try to revert to BOOT_STUB, that fixed my problem. The UEFI had a ram failure when I tested with memtest86. No reported ram fails when I reverted to BOOT_STUB.
