Obsidian randomly crashes my computer, causing a full system reboot. Debug Trace is submitted below.
Steps to reproduce
I am unaware of how to reproduce. However, the system crash seems to occur shortly after an embedded query stops working in preview mode. The embedded query works for a short time but randomly stops returning results.
Doesn’t cause system crash and query returns values
I haven’t changed the query and the query usually returns correctly. It only happens in the preview mode and specifically when a the query stops working.
I’ll be using obsidian and then all of the existing queries within the document stop working. I just get a blank search block with no search results underneath. Then after a few minutes I get the black screen of death, and the computer reboots.
Computer has crashed 4 times in the past 2 days. Each time the OS output logs shows the following (see OS trace log above):
Process name corresponding to current thread: Obsidian Helper (Renderer)
There error is always with a spinlock being held too long.
I’m disabling, third party plugins and waiting to see if that is causing the issue. I’ll report back if It happens again
I suggest you report the bug to apple and electron, because Obsidian is deep in userland and whatever we are doing, should not result in kernel panic. It’s like if yo are browsing a website and your computer crashes. It’s not the website, it’s either the browsers or the os.
