I had to leave Fedora a year ago because of breaking KDE Plasma
updates mid-cycle (even on "current minus one" Fedora). I have since
learned that this problem is unavoidable because of the Plasma release
cycle, when the previous (non-LTS) release immediately stops being
supported; this forces an update mid-cycle to a new Plasma and
glitches can happen.

I am looking at trying again, but can I somehow freeze all Plasma
packages, while not disabling updates for all other stuff? I know what
"dnf versionlock" is, but how do I create a correct list for it?

The idea would be to freeze Plasma packages in advance of a Plasma
version update and unfreeze a month after the new version goes into
Fedora, watching for critical security issues in the meantime.

I am having weird lockups with nvidia driver. Need to use the binary source for some apps I use. Machine is not 100% frozen as I can ssh in and make a clean shutdown.

I am using Xorg still.

It only seems to happen when playing videos in full screen on one monitor.

I do have some issues when switching between sessions as I have multiple users logged in at one time and all the time. If I use Plasma desktop, I end up with a KWIN using 100% of a CPU. I have not had time to worry about it yet. Going to wait to update to F33 first.

I am concerned about KDE stability at present. Many little things adding up to a major headache.
