    10.04 Lockup

    Lately I've been having issues where the screen locks up. I can -usually- move my mouse, but the loading icon of it is static and doesnt animate, I cannot use my keyboard and mouse, and nothing on the screen is updated. interesting note: I had banshee running, and the songs were still playing fine.

    Any help?

    -edit-
    about 90% of the time it freezes, it seems to happen when i'm browsing with chrome.

    it could be an issue related to flash inside the chrome, as chrome is not officially supported, you can try chromium which is in the repos. you will get most of the features,

    or you can wait for somebody to help. i have never used chrome.

    Re: 10.04 Lockup

    odds are flash is triyn to use hardware acceleration and doe to crappy development flash just locks up X org

    this is how i got it to stop freezing

    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "OverrideGPUValidation=false" > /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
    echo "EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0" >> /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
    don't do if you are using and or intel GPUs (the OP is using nvida)
