My XUbuntu 12.04 desktop sometimes just freezes becoming completely unresponsive. I have to hard-reset my computer.
I think that this somehow can be related to Skype, because when i start Skype for the first time after boot my desktop sometimes freezes for about 5 secs and then Skype terminates (without any messages), then i launch Skype again and it starts OK this time.
P/s: i update my box regularly.
How can one application compromise the whole system? (i though Linux was different).
I don't know what information can be helpful to diagnose the problem, but i will be glad to provide it on first request.
Skype version string: Skype(TM) (Beta) 22.214.171.124
Please advise )
