Random kernel panic on MBA

Postby laurids on Sun Oct 28, 2012 6:51 pm

Hi guys,

I have a Mint 13 with Cinnamon running on my Macbook Air 5,2 and everything works just fine (*).

The bad news is I'm experiencing tons of kernel panics - I would say one every two hours and then I have to force the machine to shutdown by holding the power button (both keyboard and mouse/trackpad are completely unresponsive).

Some extra info:

    Kernel: 3.2.0-23-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP
    It doesn't look related to any specific program, last time it happend I was working on Emacs only
    There are no error messages on /var/log/syslog of any kind (is that normal?)
    The suspend function works falwlessly

Could that be a bug? Do you have any idea at least to try to corner the problem? I'm kind of ran out tricks and it's really frustrating :(

Thank you!

(*) I did a research before posting and I noticed that few guys had problems with the installation process. It's not smooth actually, but you can make it if you follow this great thread on ubuntuforums. Have fun.
