I don't know what happened with recent updates or whatever, but I can't get through a single session longer than five minutes without seeing "System Problem Detected" -- the only options are "Cancel" and "report" and report is useless, since the reporting program then just also crashes. Super helpful.
It used to just be my laptop, which was an upgrade from 12.04, which I usually don't do, but I had so many Humble Bundle games installed that I didn't want to have to re-install all of them, so i just did the upgrade rather than a full wipe. Fine, I can accept that, my bad, whatever. Doesn't seem to be a big deal.
But now my TV is doing it, too. And WAY worse. Like twenty of those things pop up on startup. And it's literally just a default install of Ubuntu 12.10, complete format, with nothing else installed except Handbrake. Most of them are the completely useless "problem light" things which have no helpful information, but some are just weird little windows with nothing in them, and they're all tiny. Basically just a 30px title bar with an empty grey bar below it where a window should be.
I've felt all along that 12.10 felt like untested beta crap, with weird graphical glitches that weren't present in 12.04. But this has gotten ridiculous. Why do they keep rolling out this untested garbage?
Is anyone else having these problems?
The laptop and the TV are completely different brands, with completely different hardware (in fact, the laptop doesn't even *have* a graphics card), in fact I don't even think they have the same brand processor (I think the TV is AMD, and the lappy is Intel, but I'm not sure on the TV).
If you want me to post my specs, I can, but really I'm more interested in whether anyone else is getting these sorts of problems.
Is this really the sort of quality control that we get now? Anyone know what's causing it? Surely I can't be the only one...
