View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lucid Lynx freezes in FireFox

May 20th, 2010, 02:13 PM
Hi everybody,

I upgraded to Lucid a few days ago (from Karmic) and although everything went smoothly, I've been having this problem:

Every now and then, when I'm on FireFox, the whole computer freezes and is unresponsive. The mouse doesn't work, I can't open the terminal, I can't do anything! My only option is to press the restart button on my lapton.

I don't know if this is of any relevance, but I use UbuntuStudio, but have been using the proper Linux Kernel. I only selected the RealTime kernel if I'm working on audio editors, which I haven't done since updating to Lucid.

My laptop is an HP pavilion zv5000. It has an ATI 9000/9100 graphics card, about 768 mp of ram, and a P4 3GHz processor.

Any clues why this might be happening? Has anyone else had this issue?

Thanks everyone,

Seeing similar behaviors, but I don't know the underlying cause. I'm on ext4, which may or may not be relevant.
