So my Ubuntu 18.04 crashed (froze). It seems like the sound service ended up crashing the entire system. Is it because I have set pulse audio's priority to
very high? I changed pulse audio's daemon.conf and asound.conf for a higher quality output following standard guides available online.
The crash file's name is
_usr_bin_pulseeffects.1000.crash that's present in
/var/crash. Should I just uninstall pulse effects? ( I don't use it anymore)
If you need specific information straight from the .crash file itself, please tell me so. I'll try and give it to you. I am new to this and am unable to understand the .crash file to its full extent. These are the first few entries in the .crash file
ProblemType: Crash Architecture: amd64 CurrentDesktop: ubuntu:GNOME Date: Thu Sep 5 21:22:59 2019 DistroRelease: Ubuntu 18.04 ExecutablePath: /usr/bin/pulseeffects ExecutableTimestamp: 1566079691 ProcCmdline: /usr/bin/pulseeffects --gapplication-service ProcCwd: /home/abyssalcramps ProcEnviron: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=<set> SHELL=/bin/bash LANGUAGE=en_IN:en PATH=(custom, no user) LANG=en_IN
There is a
ProcMaps section after this, but I am unable to make sense of it. It seems like some sort of an execution order as there are cache accesses and application executions?
NOTE: The crash log seemed to have been generated on September 5 for some reason. This is the only log available in
If this .crash log cannot be the reason ubuntu crashed, where else can I find updated logs?
