Summary0007039: Kali Linux Freezing Problem
DescriptionThe screen becomes unresponsive 2-3 minutes after I started installing a large program on Kali Linux.
Steps To ReproduceI think change the swappiness settings.

sudo sysctl vm.swappiness=30 � I thought it might be 30, but I don't know exactly what.
Additional InformationI think Kali Linux needs to be accelerated a little bit more.

what ram capacity do you have because in my opinion there is simple tip
vm.swappiness=60 if you have 1GB ram
vm.swappiness=40 if you have 2GB ram
vm.swappiness=20 or 10 which i recommend more if you have 4GB ram or more
some people thinks that this parameter needs to have value 0 because it will increase you performance but i recommend 10 because when you do something that is very stressful for hardware your pc might freeze even if you have a lot of ram also i recommend vfs_drop_cache=3 also you can start htop to monitor what program will take most of resources that's what i can help
