Bug Description


I can't use Ubuntu since the 10.04 realease becouse it freezes randomly on my computer.
Doesn't matter what I'm doing (reading email, surfing webpages, writing on office). I can say that it doesn't if I'm not in front of the computer and I'm actively using it. So, it means that I can copy 40gb of data and it does it correctly... but I'm in front of it, moving mouse or keybord, it freezes.

I did the memtest more than once and everithing is ok. The alimentation is ok, too (I don't know how to call it in english, but I use the device with the battery inside to avoid problem with alimentation).

Now, other thing: when the 10.04 was released I started to use debian lenny and for six months I hadn't any problem. Now, when the 10.10 was released and I had the same problem, I tryed to upgrade lenny to squeeze... debian started to freezes, too.
Six months of lenny I think that are enough to exclude that mine is an hardware problem. Or maybe the new kernel or some programs use my hardware in a non supported way... I don't know.

For sure I can say that debian squeeze freezes less than ubuntu: with debian it happen once a day, with ubuntu once an hour.

Please, let me know if I can help you to fix this annoying problem. :(

Hi Francesco,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 671374

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
