I am generally stumped with this Ubuntu crash I am having. The machine freezes, mouse does not move. Cant escape to a terminal, cannot quit X, Apport reports nothing.
I am have been trying for weeks to reliably reproduce the crash, but I cant determine any patterns. Sometimes it will work for days. But usually when it crashes, it does so again after the next several boots in about 5-10 minutes.
This is a brand new Thinkpad T410. It came with Win 7, which I kept and now have it dual booting with Ubuntu 10.04.
I have tried running Win 7 to see if it crashes there, because I thought it might be a hardware defect, but it has not crashed there. I am not ruling this possibility out though since the crash happens so sporadically.
In ubuntu I have tried several kernals: 2.6.32.(21-23) and in recovery mode and they all suffer from this problem.
I have been googling and checking all the system logs looking for something suspicious and have found nothing. The logs are kind of poluted with info about my wifi card, but there are no errors.
Looking for ideas of what to try next.
