I've just upgraded my 32-bit Xubuntu 10.04 system to 64-bit 12.04 (Core 2 Duo) and am getting consistent errors on my Crucial SSD which causes it to remount in read-only mode after about an hour of using the system. Sometimes it seems the cause is heavy I/O installing new applications (it's a fresh install) while other times it fails while sitting idle.
Bug #992424 describes the issue with several people confirming it and others posting kernels that work for them. It was originally reported in February, but the latest activity seems to be early June. I've tried these kernels with no success:
- 3.2.29 (installed with Xubuntu 12.04)
What should I try next? I think the next step is to install 11.10 and hope the problem was introduced with 12.04, but I'm wondering if perhaps there could be a 32- vs. 64-bit issue here. It's a Dell Vostro 200 with a 64-bit Core 2 Duo, so I installed the 64-bit version, but I was running the 32-bit version before with no trouble. This all started immediately after installing 64-bit 12.04.
If it matters, I first installed over my existing 10.04 system hoping to keep most settings in tact. When I got the first errors, I did a clean install and copied over only my non-configuration home directory files.
