I have a fresh install of the debian testing distro with gnome-shell 3.4 and it crashes daily.
By crash I mean, the sound keeps repeating itself, keyboard and mouse is unresponsive, and my only option is to pull the plug.
After reboot everything seems normal, and there's no trace of any error in /var/log or I just don't know what to look for..
I tried blacklisting the nouveau driver(/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf didn't even exist! ) and removing it with modprobe -r and rmmod, but the system still crashed after a while..
The laptop is a lenovo Z580, with an intel HD 4000 and an Nvidia geForce gt365M(I suspect something with the x-server)
I just can't seem to find anything on the net that works, I searched for hours!
If you have any pointers or tips on how can I locate the problem, or find a solution, I'd really appreciate it!
UPDATE: Crashed again. I tried to ssh into the laptop, but I couldn't, it just sat there like a brick.
UPDATE2: Switched to xfce, hoping the crashes would stop, but it still crashed. This means the issue isn't with gnome!
UPDATE3: I seem to get crashes a lot more often if my usb mouse is plugged in. Maybe it has something to do with usb3?
UPDATE4: SOmetimes the distro just doesn't boot, and spits out logs(?) or error reports, I managed to photographed them(they're here), and my suspicion of USB3 is stronger with every "screenshot"... What do you think? this may worth another question...
UPDATE4: - PART 2: Also, disabling the dedicated video card didn't help...
Thank you for your help!
