View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 11.04 freezes when in dual screen

Hi! I've been using Ubuntu 11.04 for some time now and I'm experiencing many severe bugs. One of this is very bothering and I still can't find a solution.

I experienced many problems maybe related to this, but seems to have gone away by downgrading xserver-xorg-video-ati. Still anyway, when in dual screen, after some time, the screen completely freezes. The system is completely freezed, I can't even go to a shell, but I noticed it is possible to log in via ssh.

I've never had problems with ATI opensource drivers. Now I even noticed a logout problem anyway (which is known as far as I know).

Is there anyone else experiencing the same? I found some others complaining about something similar, but not exactly the same and still no solution.
Is it possible to somehow debug this when it happens?

I have to note that I'm still using kernel version 2.6.35 because the new 2.6.38 is not booting at all. But I don't know whether this is the problem or not.

Any advice is really appreciated! Thanks!

The system has suddenly just logged out right now. This is the content of .xsession-errors.old:

I suppose that is the correct one, reporting errors from the last login. Right?
I will look at this the next time I get the freeze. Does this mean anything to you? Seems quite frequent around.
Thanks for your help!

I've got the same problem... I'm trying the solution suggested here (http://www.rajeshrana.net/2011/05/27/ubuntu-11-04-freezes-hangs-idle/) for a similar problem, i.e. enabling just any screensaver, or uninstall gnome screensaver and install xscreensaver
