Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: linux-image
hints: new kernel, b43 wifi driver, other reasons?
Linux ubuntu 2.6.24-8-generic #1 SMP Thu Feb 14 20:13:27 UTC 2008 x86_64
>From time to time (every 10 to 100 minutes) the computer is frozen with
no reason. It dosen't matter what i do when it freezes. With no reason,
the image is frozen, the mouse is not responding, and i can't switch to
any terminals either. I think the kernel is the problem.
It hapends since i've updated to the latest alpha feisty from gutsy a
few days ago (so upgrade to the kernel also)
Other changes i made is installing the b43 proprietary driver for my
wifi card (instead of the old ndiswrapper driver) - i do'nt know if it
is because of this driver or not.
On my gutsy i only had the old nvidia driver buffer overflow in compiz,
but it didnt made the kernel freeze (it slowed down the computer) so i
guess it is not realted to this old bug.
