Firefox: multiple tabs open, grooveshark one of them is playing music (!important but it will be soon)
Firefox: mulitple tabs open
Tomboy, Guake, KeePassX, Pidgin, Variety Wallpaper changer, Dropbox
Hamster time tracker, Workspace changer, URL Shorten, Notification, Recent files
This is obviously not an exhaustive list but only the major applications that I turned on at startup.
Now, I worked for about 6-8 hours straight, no problem. Suddenly, everything froze. Grooveshark is still playing music. So I tried frantically hitting Esc and some other stuff (ALt-Ctrl-Delete, Alt-F4, etc) to no avail.
Finally I hit Alt+Ctrl+F3, worked!!! Logged in and started killing individual programs (kill -9 pid), and simultaneously checking if Ctrl+Alt+F7 (cinnamon) is responding. Nope. I also tried to restart cinnamon via
Code: Select all
Finally, I just hit sudo reboot and everything starts up fine and works.
This has happend a couple of times now. I also use LMDE at work, and I have only had this exact issue about 2 times since the last Update Pack. Could someone please shed some light on this?
P.S. I have also noticed that sometimes there is a slight glitch about 15-20 mins before the freeze. I checked system monitor to see if there are any zombies, CPU resource hoggers, etc. But I find nothing.
