I had some time-critical work to do; no one seemed to be monitoring earlier.
I reinstalled the OS to do the work. That worked, but the crash was strange,
in that I wasn't doing anything particularly different from normal operation.
I was using a default package manager (KpackageKit) installing a common video
player (Xine) and the system crashed to the point I could not boot to a
screen. I attempted dpkg and a command line video repair feature (can't
remember the name of the package at the moment), plus shutting down completely
several times with a few minutes between to see if it might fix itself.
Nothing worked, so after about 3 hours, I decided to reinstall. I was trying
to avoid all the configuration and added packages, but couldn't wait. Thank
you for trying to help. I hope it was not too much waste of your time.
I will keep an eye out for the same problem. Everything is reinstalled in the
same configuration, so if something is really wrong, it should reappear. I am
saving your suggestion and will try it if the problem reappears. Thanks
