View Full Version : [ubuntu] 2011 MBA 13.10 locking up

Hi Everyone

After not being able to resolve a graphical glitch coming out of hibernate/standby with previous versions of Ubuntu I created a USB stick of 13.10, booted my macbook air (summer 2011 model) with it and found it to lock up unexpectedly before a random amount of time (usually < 2 minutes). By lock up I mean, mouse pointer disappearing, no response, no tty access, and freezing applications.

I'm aware general reactions to using Linux over OSX is 'don't', but I have reason to. Hence the question.

Any pointers and tips greatly appreciated, I already wasted a massive amount of time twiddling with this MBA and don't want to fruitlessly sink more into it. :P
