Hey. Beginner here and got this fix for my ubundu 8.10 freezing randomly. I have a new dell 1525 core2 duo, 2 gig ram. what do i type exactly in the terminal?

Thanks for your report.

This is likely a dup of bug 276990
Can you please run the command "sudo lspci -vvnn > lspci-vvnn.log" and attach the file lspci-vvnn.log

Thanks in advance.

I would also like to know how to troubleshoot random freeze. I think it might be caused by the video card (ATI x1650) but how to find out?

sudo lspci -vvnn > lspci-vvnn.log

which will create a file called 'lspci-vvnn.log' attach the file in a reply to the report.

Note this command will not fix your system but help others determine the cause of the problem.

I too am feeling the freeze.

I just added an ATI 3450 (ASUS AH 3450 AGP) to a happy Intrepid installation. After using envy to install the driver, I rebooted and froze solid 90seconds or so into the desktop. The same thing occurred after every subsequent reboot; about 60-120seconds of usability followed by a total hang.

It looks like I have a solution too; set your AGP "multiplier" to 4X. It appears that 8X AGP was the villain.

I am well past the usual onset of the lock-up so, if you are trying to run ATI on AGP, check for 8X.

Best luck!

ok, I'll try the AGP multiplier to 4X

I've done the sudo lspci -vvnn > lspci-vvnn.log command, but I do not see where the file output is.

In general, the output should be in whatever directory the terminal is.
However, if you still can't find it, just do lspci and copy the results to a file, or post it here.
