Since about three weeks IntelliJ is freezing when I'm trying to load any project. It's the same with a new project too. It seems like it freezes the whole xserver - I can't interact with any application until I kill the java process in the terminal.
Currently I'm using Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 (tried it with Kubuntu 15.04 too) and IntelliJ 14.1.4.
What have I checked already?
- Several log files (IntelliJ Log, syslog) - There is nothing about the error
- Console output of IntelliJ - nothing too
What have I tried already?
New, raw installation of IntelliJ (same problem)
Reinstall the operating system (it worked until the first reboot after the installation of IntelliJ)
Different Java versions (Oracle/OpenJDK, JDK7/8) (same problem)
Other desktop environment (Gnome, KDE Plasma) (same problem)
Change some JVM args (related to RAM) (not working)
Run IntelliJ as root (not working)
Maybe an additional interesting piece of information is that this error first occured after I changed my mainboard, CPU and RAM. However, IntelliJ on Linux is the only program with troubles - so I hardly believe that the reason of the problem is the change of the hardware.
