[solved] Back screen - random crash

Hi guys,

I guess I might need some help here...
it is a couple of days that I am experiencing random crashes, I am a noob, so I am not sure I will be able to explain well, but basically, it all goes black and there is nothing I can do.
I try to get to a prompt by ctrl F1 etc, or ctr F7 but nothing works, the only thing I can do is to shut down the computer.
I don't know what I have screwed up, I have been tinkering a bit with conky but I don't recall doing anything that seemed dangerous....as I said this is something I must have done recently, I am more than positive that everything was fine only few days ago...
I tried to look into the system log, but there is nothing really i can get out of that...
I am trying to understand if it is linked to some specific application, and as far as I can understand I always had a videoclip running (old big bang theory episode big_smile ) when the crashes happened (both VLC and totem)
Is there someone that could spare some time and point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

M

PS
I found a file in my home folder, maybe this file has always been there and I am just getting paranoid... as per the log file, it doesn't tell me anything, but maybe it could help...

EDIT:
I got rid of the following line in conky:
${execi 1 setxkbmap -v 7 | grep layout | awk '{print $2}'}
and everything seems back to normal.
Don't really understand where the problem was...but it is ok.

Thanks

Re: [solved] Back screen - random crash

Thanks Omns,

I really like the distro an the community is fantastic, I am very happy this problem is part of the past... happy crunchbanger again... smile

I have seen the new sticky for conky problems that Hanna made, if I have time I will ask for her opinion, it would be handy if conky could display my keyboard layout.


Thanks

Re: [solved] Back screen - random crash

Hi Hanna,

thanks for your help,

i posted my question on the conky help sticky
http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/post/16302/#p16302

my problem is not how to get conky to display the keyboard layout, but how to do it without having annoying random crashes.
I know I didn't explain myself very well, hopefully in the other post it is more clear.

Thanks
M
