I'm pretty new to Linux, and was just getting going when my power supply died. Now I've gotten the new power supply, but the machine has locked up on me three times. Once was when I was installing FireFox, and twice, it was just sitting there. I had the Folding@Home client and Ximian Evolution running the last two times.
Linux seems to know that the computer was shut down uncleanly, and offers to do file system integrity checks. Is there a way to tell what process did something it shouldn't? I can certainly use the process of elimination to determine if it's one of the two processes I specifically launched, but I've been around computers long enough to know that it very well could be a background process that's causing the problem.
Any ideas? Thanks...
