What should I do when Ubuntu freezes?
I dual booted Ubuntu on Windows 8 (Getting the dual boot right alone took 2 tries, thanks to UEFI framework). After the dual boot, Ubuntu started to freeze, mouse won't work, keypad won't work, I had no option but to power cycle it :( ...it's a new system, yet I had to power-cycle it twice before updating and switching to unity 2D mode. Soon after something happened to GRUB and it failed to load, the system would boot straight into Windows 8.
I had to delete the partition and re-install Ubuntu, after re-installing I updated Ubuntu and switched to Unity 2D, but after 8 hours of use, it froze again. This is too much work, I just wanna install my Linux based OS and work with it, not spend every day re-installing it. I also tried searching about this BUG on the internet. Is there any way around this that is known of or maybe I could try getting 12.10. Does 12.10 freeze regularly as well?
I got my new system only a few weeks back, it has an Intel Core i5 processor and an Intel HD 4000 integrated graphic, I don't see how this could be hardware's fault? I know, my post has lot of useless information but it's been so much work, just to get things work.
I love coding on Ubuntu, I like the nix-like environment but now, I think I might have to give it up if it's gonna need me re-install it every other day.
