I have updated my gutsy to hardy (x86_64).
Now I experience random lockups, no idea how to debug it, it’s a hard lockup, no way out but reset.
I am on a core 2 duo with a nvidia 8500GT.
If anybody has a solution, please let me know.
I’ve experienced several breakages over the last couple of days. No problems with my nvidia card though.
I guess you could try to install the envy thing, which installs the latest nvidia driver from upstream.
You can find it here:
I haven’t used it myself, though.
at the moment I am just riding it out. I disabled composite manager, that seemed to increase the lockups.
I did a clean install with Hardy and I must say, it works like a charm. So why don’t you try the same? There is also the possibility of doing a clean install with preservation of you’re /home partition (assuming you do have a separate home partition?) I hope you get it fixed soon!
I am not sure what is happening, but they don’t look like problems caused by upgrading instead of a fresh install.
I found out that if I run the -rt (real-time) kernel, I don’t get lock-ups.
But then my network card stops working after a random period of time.
