In the last hour, my ubuntu 11.10 on Toshiba Satellite A70 has crashed. I can't do anything on the laptop & have to remove battery to power off. I installed ubuntu 11.10 from live CD. As I'm novice programmer, l usually have 3-4 other applications running incl. firefox. Where do I get the error log to show points of crash? The latest crash happened while using eclipse indigo java ee for web developers, firefox, gimp & gimp help. My system info: Linux & Win XP (50:50 partioned); kernel release 3.0.0_15-generic, i386; 32-bit OS.
Why is this happening? How can I avoid this becoming a frequent problem? I am worried that my hard drive may also crash!
I appreciate all help. Many thanks sizha
