  1. [ubuntu] Re: Good cheap graphics card that won't crash system

    The issue is too hard to reproduce on demand; but i'm leaning towards a dead lock in the new xserver or video driver. I'm not sure what actually runs in kernel mode and what runs in user mode. I'm...

    Hum I made an update but it was lost. Yes I am using a sandy bridge 2500k without graphic card so intel hd 2000. I did an update to 16.04.2; so I presume that would include all updates provided by...

    [ubuntu] Re: frequent system crash with 16.04 and vlc

    As an update my crash rate has dropped since the removal of the usb dac (fifo); but it still happens once every couple of other days. Would be nice if there was a way to get a kernel dump of what is...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Good cheap graphics card that won't crash system

    -
    My method of upgrading from 14.04.x to 16.0.4 was to install 16.04 on a new system disk and then replace system disks. I actually did this in case i had to 'downgrade'. All data is (/home et all)...
  5. [ubuntu] Re: Good cheap graphics card that won't crash system

    It is a hard crash; nothing in syslog or kern.log. I don't want xubuntu; I want xfce4. Unfortunately xubuntu adds other crap that i dislike. Are you suggesting I have to run unity to avoid kernel...

    I have a sandy bridge system (2500K); and while the HD 2000 graphics are more than adequate for my needs; the latest update (16.04.2) is causing my system to crash when using parole (to watch...

    [ubuntu] Re: frequent system crash with 16.04 and vlc

    Well VLC is certainly triggering the kernel level crash; If I select the accel manually i have to constantly switch depending on what I am playing; and if i play the video without hw acceleration (on...

    [ubuntu] Re: frequent system crash with 16.04 and vlc

    I should have noted that most of the crashes occur in full screen-mode (crash might not be the right term because I'm not referring to application crash but system lock up). I know the system is...

    [ubuntu] Re: frequent system crash with 16.04 and vlc

    There is nothing useful in /var/crash. My problem is system (kernel?) crash (i.e, system hangs completely) not application crash. I might be mistaken but only applications show up in /var/crash.

    [ubuntu] frequent system crash with 16.04 and vlc

    I've upgraded from 14.04 to 16.04 and I am having system crashes mostly due to something with vlc. The machine is a 2500K using the CPU's GPU. If VLC is running full scream that can almost always...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Can't mount zfs partitions in 16.04.1 and /etc/fstab

    I should have noted that one of the reason the mount points were legacy is that I have to export one of the mount points after the mount (via bind). I suppose i could change them but the bind mount...
  12. [ubuntu] Can't mount zfs partitions in 16.04.1 and /etc/fstab

    I have two sets of zfs mount points; the regulars one mount ok (and early in boot process since /home is zfs partition); but the ones that are specified in /etc/fstab will not mount. There is an...

  18. [xubuntu] Re: xubuntu: light-locker not working (desktop) (14.04)

    That helps a little but not completely. I did not reboot the system or restart lightdm; but i did uninstall gnome-screensaver and killed all running instances. If I kill tvtime it will lock now; but...

    [ubuntu] Re: Unable to execute add-apt-repository
