KDE crashing


Hello!

I'm currently having a problem that I don't know what could be. I've installed Kubuntu, 3 days ago and have installed the following packages by apt-get:

bluefish
kdiff3
xmms

And their respectives dependecies, of course. I'm using the ubuntu multiverse repositories.

The problem is, randomly, the system crashes... The screen goes black and the monitor light becames orange (it's like the system went in the standby mode, but this couldn't be cause I was operating the computer!)

When the screen goes black, nothing works more, keyboard, mouse, till the music I was hearing stops. Something knows what it could be or where I should search for answers?

Thank you!

Haven't seen any issues with mention apps. Check to see if processor fan is working. Might be overheating and shutting down based on bios temperture settings if they are there and defined. Could also be a power supply going bad as well. Or too small of a power supply.

Hello Brian,
I think that there is no hardware problem because, I've installed on the same PC, Ubuntu (GNOME X) and Windows XP and, both, runs perfectlly.

Is there any place where I could look for KDE logs on my system?

Thanks!

Look in your home directory for .xsession-errors and /var/log/ directory for log files.
