Freezing all the time

Post by u8sand »

Hello everyone,
I'm new to the linux world in general, however the problems I'm having are uncalled for... As far as I understood adopting linux brought the benefit of a stable operating system, unlike windows which crashes a lot. However moving from Windows 7 (where I don't even remember the last time it crashed) to Linux Mint where I just crashed 5 minutes ago, and 10 minutes before then. I'm starting to wonder why exactly I moved. But that's all in the past now, so I'll figure out this problem, or find another linux distribution that DOESN'T crash every 10 minutes. I picked Linux Mint because from testing different linux distributions in a virtual PC, linux mint seemed the easiest to migrate from the Windows world into the Linux world THEN I'd think about getting more down and dirty into the linux world.

Anyway I recently installed linux and my system has been crashing every once in a while without warning. It might be when I'm downloading files, it might be when I'm preforming file operations, or maybe even checking my email or while I'm away from my computer. It crashes, or freezes I should say. What happens is, whatever was on the screen stays that way, nothing I press or do can change anything I simply have to press the power button. I'm guessing its some aspect of my hardware that isn't being handled correctly however I have no clue what it is or what I should do. If its something that I installed then it'd have to be the NVIDIA BETA Driver or the other one, matter-of-fact I'll disable it and see how things go now. I can assure you that my hardware is good enough to run the operating system for I custom built my computer with Intel's Core-I7 with 6 cores and 16GB of RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card. If their is any other information about my system you want I can provide it to you.

For now I'll be playing around with programs trying to figure out how to stop it from crashing (like I just uninstalled CompizFusion because I found in other threads on other forums that it was a possible problem) and disabling those beta drivers. I hope someone here can provide a solution and I can get back to what I do best.. programming..

Thank you in advance.

Bump?

After removing Compiz Fusion and the BETA NVIDIA graphics driver, freezing has become less often but it still happens. Its happened at least twice every day now, and twice Just now while i was writing this entry....

The times i noticed it happening are: when downloading application packages for installation, while playing games (simple flash games), while installing a virtual PC, and while helping someone on TeamViewer.

I'm looking for more possible issues but i don't really understand exactly what is happening and why. I don't know where to look to find out if the system is giving any system error messages either, it is also hard to look into stuff with your computer crashing all the time.... I hope someone can help me.

What happens when it freezes? Some questions to narrow it down...

Does the screen stay intact, or does it go black or garbled?
Does the mouse cursor still move?
Do you keyboard numlock, capslock and scrolllock lights still toggle when you push their respective buttons?
If you press Ctrl+Alt+F1, do you go to the virtual terminal or does nothing happen?
How about Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, does that reset your desktop?

Screen stays intact, mouse doesn't move, keyboard completely locked numlock ect don't respond. Ctrl + Alt + F1 and Ctrl + Alt + Backspace, neither of these do anything I have tried it all just does nothing so I'm forced to reset my computer.

Drats. those are the hardest to pin. Is temperature a problem? Does your BIOS have temperature information; then check next time it crashes.

Upon reboot you may want to consult the logfiles, around the time of the crash. Probably your dmesg or syslog files. Go to the right folder:

Code: Select all

cd /var/log
Check which files will include the time of the crash:

Code: Select all

ls -ltr dmesg* syslog*
(Ignore the .gz files, look for the file whose timestamp is equal to the time of the crash, or later [not earlier, that is file from another time you used the computer].)

And then examine that file for errors, or post them on http://pastebin.com and share the link here.

Their are no files that are not .gz in their near the times of crashing. Rather it seems their are only TWO for the only two times i've ever shut down without it crashing.
Their are however .gz files that seem to match the times of crashing.

Also I highly doubt its a temperature issue, first: I was just in my bios before and the temperatures were all good. Second, I have been unable to even control my fan speed they have been at 100% because I have yet to find a "speed-fan equivalent" for linux, so I think their is no reason it could possibly be too hot. Plus I've never had a overheating issue before while on windows.

I think it is most-likely something to do with my graphics card, I just found a driver from NVIDIA their-selves and am trying to figure out how to install it now. (a .run file, keep getting "unknown command")
I'll be looking through those logs to see if I find anything but as of now I have not.

Still freezing once in a while, here I got the logs and put em on pastebin I put all of dmesg but syslog was too long so I put a bunch of the end of the file.

http://pastebin.com/mu5fU6vU

Also when trying other distributions I encountered similar problems, OpenSUSE it froze immediately, fedora it froze after a while (both use gnome 3). Also I'm on Linux Mint 11. When I tried installing NVIDIA's graphics driver I attempted to startup only to receive an error message saying the kernel graphics driver version and my installed graphics driver version didn't match so it didn't even show the screen so I had to uninstall it to get back.

Looking through my pastebin files their are a lot of stuff about the internet going on and off, that is because my internet is very unstable here, but that shouldn't be causing freezing I don't think... It also says stuff about NVIDIA and disabling certain things but I don't know what they are or how to disable them if it is needed.

Thanks for your continued support, I hope the solution comes soon.

-------------------- edit -----------------------------
I just got the nvidia driver installed, lets see how it goes.

Playing a flash game resulted in two crashes, maybe it has something to do with flash on 64bit operating systems, I'll stop using flash applications and see how things go.

I am having the same issue. I looked at your syslog bit to see if ours had anything in common and we both seem to have this immediately before the freeze:

Yours:
Mar 16 15:25:06 Daniel-PC anacron[1151]: Job `cron.daily' started
Mar 16 15:25:06 Daniel-PC anacron[2577]: Updated timestamp for job `cron.daily' to 2012-03-16

Mine:

Mar 31 09:44:25 caroline-K53E anacron[2538]: Anacron 2.3 started on 2012-03-31
Mar 31 09:44:25 caroline-K53E anacron[2538]: Will run job `cron.daily' in 5 min.
Mar 31 09:44:25 caroline-K53E anacron[2538]: Jobs will be executed sequentially
Mar 31 09:44:27 caroline-K53E kernel: [ 7475.473995] EXT4-fs (sda1): re-mounted. Opts: errors=remount-ro,commit=0

I am fairly new to linux but as I understand it, cron.daily is the script that is set to run each day and I am wondering if there isn't somehow something that got into it which is causing people to freeze. Quite a few people have posted on this issue in the last week. I could be way off base though, I don't really know what I'm talking about. I do really need help though so if anyone has suggestions. . .

I'am having the same problem.

Just swapped from Windows 7 to LM12 for the same reason, it's stability.
But it keeps freezing to me, I'am on day 2 now and I think it froze for about 10 times.
Never had HW issues on W7.

I can access the Terminal screen and ctrl+alt+backspace resets the desktop.
The mouse also moves and can select things in the top bar (I don't know the name of it) but when I click on it, it doesn't respond.

I'm getting exactly the same issue here, sometimes the whole OS freezes which means a forced power down, other times I can ssh and do a reboot.

I should also add that i run 2 monitors on this system so have to make modifications to the Xorg(Sounds like an evil alien!!).
I have installed lm-sensors to monitor temp and normal temperatures which are no where near dangerous enough to cause the system to crash.
Initially it seemed to happen when I would download drivers and updates, I initially put this down to the ath9k wifi card and right enough drivers fixed that issue, getting some powerline adapters to get rid of any wifi problems.

I like others here expected better of linux, I have been trying to get a stable rig on and off for the last 6 months(no way will i use windows 8 ) but end up just getting frustrated and switching to Win 7.
I have been through ubuntu, opensuse, fedora, debian, Mint, xubuntu, pclinux. Not one has been smooth enough to run permanently. :(

I am also constantly freezing, I also run two dual monitors. Its very unfortunate I really love the way the os looks and feels when its not crashing. But im crashing randomly at least 10 times a day. I will also like to mention im running 32gigs of ram.

update -
so for those of you who are having the same exact problem, make sure you do the latest bios update as well as downloading the new nvidia drivers that were released today. I havent had a single crash today from doing those two things. If i have another crash ill make sure to post another update but those of you who were having a similar issue give that a shot !

Do others that have the same issue, experience exactly these symptoms as well?

I'd suggest upgrading your kernel as a first step. To do so open de Update Manager, Edit > Preferences and make level 4 and 5 updates visible. Then checkmark those available manually and install them. See if this improves your computing experience.

I am also having the same issue (total freeze, and no escape key sequences work). I run four monitors using the amd proprietary driver and an xorg.conf file.

Re: Freezing all the time

Post by psypa »

So I upgraded to the latest kernel, to no effect. The same problems persist. The crash seems to be associated with running video (usually in a web browser I think). Whatever the issue is, it seems serious enough that the logs don't seem to be picking it up ....

Attached is the complete log from the time of crash (again, no escape key bindings work after the initial freeze). Will probably have to abandon Mint 13 cinnamon if I can't get this fixed relatively soon....
