    Re: 8.04 randomly freezing requiring hard shut down, caps and scroll lock flash

    Well... My Dell has a built-in NVidia Quadro NVS 135M.

    AlGorenator's Inspiron 6000 has... ATI Radeon?

    I'm running mine in WXGA mode (1280x800, 24-bit)... the Inspiron 6000 runs also in WXGA, correct?

    (inquiring)...

    It is becoming indeed more and more my believe that this could be the case

    Mine only crashed under AC (have not tested whether it also happens when running on batteries).
    The indicated temperatures where they -- compared to "normal" running conditions -- high or just about average? Since the temperatures that you indicate are about the temperatures I am having during "normal" operating conditions.

    If I am running a "heavy" graphical application both temperatures easily run up to ~80°C and sometimes even higher.

    Sorry for asking, but what is WXGA mode? How do I test/confirm this?

    The same thing happens to me.

    I'm running Hardy on Acer Travelmate 660 (Intel 1.4, Intel 855GM graphics and Intel wireless) and before the last update (Kernel 2.6.24-19-generic) everything worked perfectly, absolutely no issues.

    After the update, my system is COMPLETELY UNUSABLE!!!

    I'm getting hangs on everything. Random program crashes, Segmentation faults, X resets, X freezing, complete system freezing, even GDM sometimes crashes. The SysRq keys sometime work and sometime the only solution is hard-reset.

    I've ran Memcheck and it reported no errors. Also, before the update there were no crashes. I've tried downgrading to 2.6.24-18-generic but it's the same. I don't know what else got upgraded so I cannot revert to test.

    I've also tried both intel and i810 driver and it makes no difference.

    Here's a stack trace from firefox that I've managed to catch:
    Code:

    Re: 8.04 randomly freezing requiring hard shut down, caps and scroll lock flash

    Note that I had this problem first with an Emachine w/ AMD XP 2000 and later with a very old Dell Optiplex PIII, so I do not think it is just Dell Hardware. The common link between them was I switched the wireless card from one to the other.

    From the errors, looks like you need to do an fsck on your harddisk. Before that, to confirm, can you try booting to a previous kernel (-18 for example) and check if everything works fine? You can find an entry for the previous kernel in your GRUB during bootup.

    Also I have heard the GCJ (OpenSource Java plugin) is not quite "there" yet. Maybe you should remove it and check if things improve?

    Is that not done automatically every so many start ups?

    That is only if you have not removed the previous kernel

    Would that be the package gcj? Because I get quite a long list if I do a search using
    Code:
    apt-cache search gcj

    Re: 8.04 randomly freezing requiring hard shut down, caps and scroll lock flash

    The disc is checked almost daily because of the constant reboots. I always let it finish the checking.

    I've also tried disabling all the extensions and plugins (and starting firefox with -safe-mode) but as far as I can tell, it's NOT a firefox problem. Different programs keep crashing and it's always segmentation fault. I have prevously removed the -18 and earlyer kernels, but I've reinstalled the -18 and it behaves the same so I suspect that some other component (library) needs to get rolled back, I just don't know which.

    Re: 8.04 randomly freezing requiring hard shut down, caps and scroll lock flash

    I also have random but frequent freeze. I have installed 8.04 on a thinkpad. It happens in very different context, in Firefox or Gedit, with or without the machine plugged on AC etc...No regularity watsoever.

    I reinstalled Hardy two or three times just to check if I could find some inconsistencies with no success:::it is stil freezing.

    It is a very serious bug....you cannot use Hardy professionnaly. I would be glad if the UBUNTU CANONICAL team can give us advice. The whole reputqtion of ubuntu is engaged if we cannot trust a LTS version. I always wait such versions for upgrading because i need something absolutely stable.

    I love Ubuntu and hate windows....but for the time being I am very glad to be able to use XP, which is ugly and unconvenient but undoubtly STABLE

    Thanks to all the development teams.....but please GET IT FIX QUICKLY

    Mine only crashed under AC (have not tested whether it also happens when running on batteries).
    The indicated temperatures where they -- compared to "normal" running conditions -- high or just about average? Since the temperatures that you indicate are about the temperatures I am having during "normal" operating conditions.

    If I am running a "heavy" graphical application both temperatures easily run up to ~80°C and sometimes even higher.
    Yes... I agree... I pointed this out to share that I don't think this is temperature related. Someone mentioned in a similar-topic thread that the Kernel panic could be due to overheating.


    Mine is 1440x90 resolution.
    Sorry for asking, but what is WXGA mode? How do I test/confirm this?
    Well... WXGA is an identifier for the graphics mode (resolution) that a computer runs... Basically it locates you within a timeline and resolution parameters... When it came to graphics adapters, CGA was the pioneer (Color Graphics Adapter, legendary 320x200 and 640x200, up to 16 colors)... then others like EGA (640x350, 16-64 colors), VGA (640x480, 256 color), and so on until XGA (Extended Graphics Adapter, 1024x768, millions of colors)... others evolved eventually... the W in WXGA stands for Wide... this is used to address Widescreens... 1440 resolution is sometimes referred to as WXGA+

    It's all about graphics resolutions.

    Neat geek jargon, huh?

    Well... I might've moved off-thread a bit, but I wanted to answer this one.

    As for the crashing... try under battery operation... nevertheless, yesterday I got 2 crashes... all under AC.

    So now I begin to forget about battery/AC power-management issues. Still looking for a clue in logs.

    Same thing over here.

    I think this is not merely UBUNTU-related. I've read other distros have similar problems... I think it is Kernel version related.

    I love Ubuntu and hate windows....but for the time being I am very glad to be able to use XP, which is ugly and unconvenient but undoubtly STABLE
    I agree. GUTSY doesn't seem to have this problems... You could try settling back to it until it's solved. I won't.

    And yes... I still keep a Windows partition just in case.

    I'm an Ubuntu fan. I trust this will be solved soon.
    I am going to try and see if another one... (let's give OpenSuse 11 a drive)... has similar issues.
