    [ubuntu] Re: Computer Stops Responding

    Freezed again. Num-lock, caps-lock, etc. don't do anything. The lights don't light up, and the caps-lock light doesn't flash. Ctrl + Alt + F2 doesn't do anything.

    Any ideas?

    For your iPod, try Songbird 1.2. It's pretty similar to iTunes.

    I think Songbird has up to 1.6 out, but the iPod support is lacking. It works 100% in 1.2 so I went back to that.
