View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu Screen of Death

December 28th, 2009, 05:15 PM
I just upgraded to 9.10 and am having the problem of getting the ubuntu equivalent of the Blue screen of Death. It happens when I am in firefox 3.5, the program disappears and my desktop appears. Shortly thereafter the top line of my icon tray disappears and then all the icons disappear and all I am left with is my screen background all this time my mouse is dead.I ran into similar problems with Windows 98 and ME but 9.10 is worse. Should I go back to 9.04 or earlier? If so where is the repository for that?

before you did the upgrade to 9.10 did you do a full update of 9.04 first?

A clean install of 9.10 rather than upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10 may solve most of your issues.
