Bodhi Linux freezes


Hello all, I'm a keen supporter of the Linux ethos and have been using it as a dual-boot for some years now. Now using Bodhi Linux 2.4.1 with my 2.66Ghtz Intel Celeron & 1GB RAM (1GB swap size) but the system hangs with as little as 31% CPU use (according to Conky) and often no applications open.


lspci -nn | grep VGA

glxinfo | grep OpenGL
OpenGL drivers:
The program 'glxinfo' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing
sudo apt-get install mesa-util

Complete list of applications and hardware available on request, alas too big a post for here!

Thank you for being so user-friendly by the way, Bodhi's own forums have led me round in circles trying to validate my account multiple times - yours needed only one attempt!

The application to run is top, it will tell you if there is a runaway process or whatnot. However, it just may be bad RAM, try running memtest overnight.

Thank you very much indeed Emerson, I ran a memtest which showed my RAM was clean but I run 'top' on every session now and consequently go much easier on my aged desktop (I am typing this on Midori and not the CPU-gobbling Firefox 26).

My first post is solved! Whooppee (and just before the hols too)!
