[Solved] Random crashes on laptop running waldorf 3.2.0-4-amd64

Hello, recently I've been experiencing random crashes while using my laptop (Lenovo G580). The screen and trackpad freeze completely, and no key combinations do anything. They seem to occur at random, and I'm not sure if they're triggered by high memory use, as I had one when I only had geany open. Please tell me if you need any more information.

Got the same problem here tonight on my ThinkPad T60.  I was using Iceweasel and OpenOffice.  This was my first time of system freeze since using this beautiful OS for months.

I had to press the power button for seconds to turn off the computer and then booted it.

Cool, i'll wait for it to happen again, for some reason I haven't had any freezes today.

That's not such a bad thing smile

Keep hitting your upgrades just to make sure you get any fixes that might help you out with your issue.

Re: [Solved] Random crashes on laptop running waldorf 3.2.0-4-amd64

it looks to me like your logs are getting filled up by touchpad actions.  We're going to have to go further into the log files for a chance to see what's going on.  Open the logs up in an editor and scroll up to the time at which it occurred to see if we can get anything useful.

Check the dmesg log as well, as that captures any kernel related errors that might be occurring.

Re: [Solved] Random crashes on laptop running waldorf 3.2.0-4-amd64

the ones i posted are the lines that occurred just before the crash, and my dmesg only seems to contain info on my current boot of crunchbang.

Re: [Solved] Random crashes on laptop running waldorf 3.2.0-4-amd64

Check dmesg.0 as well.

If nothing is there, then it looks to me like whatever is causing the issue isn't getting logged(which happens a lot to me on my servers), so it's going to take someone smarter than I to help you out of your pickle, I suspect.

That being said, do you have a bootable OS on the machine that runs without issue?  The last three issues I had that didn't get logged were due to failing memory sticks.

I've compiled the 3.7.4 kernel, and I have windows installed as well, so I'll see if I get any problems with them.

Yup! The crashes are gone. I suppose my laptop and the 3.2.0-4 kernel don't like each other somehow.

I've got Waldorf installed on my Thinkpad x200 and my wife's x230.  Hers was experiencing crashes like thes a couple weeks ago, but mine was fine.  I installed the Liquorix kernel and that seems to have solved it.  Sorry, didn't record the kernel version that was causing the problems.
