Decided I wanted to play some Elite: Dangerous. Start up SteamVR, start heading to a place to collect some things, and system freeze. Reboot, start up SteamVR again, didn't even get me in the game before it locked up again.

Remove some stuff, like Vive Port, which previously caused issues, but then the Vive wouldn't work, but now I have an Index, so removed that crap... and still freezing.

In the midst of troubleshooting the error, it gives you a stopcodes link, which doesn't even list the error it was giving, tried some suggestions like enabling driver verification, which then sent it into a boot loop.

So, needless to say, I give up troubleshooting the damn thing, just gonna re-install... ugh, which means then I get the fun of fixing grub afterward. Good thing I have trusty Debian to kill some time while the media creation tool does it's thing...

I constantly have problems with this game, so I am not surprised.

Sadly it isn't just that game that was crashing, pretty much anything in VR (I was trying to watch the last season of Game of Thrones in VR and it would crash at least three times per episode. Maybe the computer was just as angry at how the last season went as everyone else )
