upgrade to Jaunty, system keeps crashing

Bug #366906 reported by neonfetus on 2009-04-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I upgraded to Jaunty yesterday and have had numerous problems:
Alarm clock would give a message about an alarm that hadn't gone off. As soon as I would close the window, Ubuntu crashes with a complete lock-up. No commands work - power must be turned off and restart the computer.
Also, twice while using Firefox, it crashed same as above. Once I had just opened a link in a new tab, the other time was when I maximized it from the task bar.
I don't know if this is related to the crash, but my system volume settings changed after I had set them.

There have been other random annoyances, such as multiple instances in the menu of certain applications, but nothing that seems like a critical system error.

Thanks for your time!

Hi neonfetus,

Sorry for the delayed response here. Is this still an issue for you. It's best if bug reports target one specific issue. I'd suggest opening a separate bug report regarding the issues with Firefox or other apps you see issues with.

After the issue with the alarm and the system appearing to lock up, are you able to say ssh into the machine? I'd be curious to see the dmesg output after the lock up if you're able to get it. Thanks.
