After extended use, Ubuntu 5.10 randomly slows down/hangs
I'm getting this weird problem with Ubuntu 5.10. It's strange because this is the only distribution that I've ever encountered this in; earlier Ubuntus were also fine.
After an extended use of the operating system, my computer will start slowing down and eventually hang. Although the point where my computer starts to hang is sometimes random, it has always happened like this:
Like I said, I have no idea what the problem was because I've tried earlier Ubuntus, Debian 3.0r1, and Slackware 10.2 on the same laptop and I've never encountered this happening on my laptop before.
Any suggestions will be appreciated. I'll be happy to post more infomation on hardware/software if it is needed as well.
Have you checked to see if something was taking up the processer / memory.
