I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit on my PC. After I've installed nVidia drivers (recommended) to solve the problem of the cursor that vanishes, Ubuntu freezes randomly when I'm working, I mean that the system doesn't react to my actions except when I press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then Ctrl+Alt+F7, with this solution everything returns to normal. I've narrowed down the cause to these 3:
- The drivers don't work correctly
- I was wrong to install Ubuntu on an ext4 partition
- The swap partition is too relevant to the RAM (when I write in terminal
cat /proc/sys/vm/swappinessit reports a value of 60).
I don't want to install another distro before I've tried everything possible!
