Ubuntu keeps locking up on me (8.10 on my sig rig), though it only happens when (or I've only have this happen to me so far when):

1. I'm doing something with Amarok. And I mean atualy doing things lik adding songs to the playlist, browsing through the collection, hitting a song in the playlist... anything. It never causes lockups when I just have it playing in the background. This only happens occasionally, but often enough to drive me nuts - up to 3 times a day when I'm listening to music full-on.

2. I'm drag-and-dropping files in the file browser. Now this seems to happen every time, I've had few lucky times but I'm not even drag&dropping anymore because, well, I'm scared it'll lock up again...

It just locks up. Ctrl+Alt+Del does nothing, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace does nothing, the pointer doesn't move, it responds to no amount of keypressing... however, the music would keep playing whenever I had Amarok on. It would finish the currently playing song as if the computer was functioning normally, but then it doesn't go on to the next song. My only solution so far has been to hit reset button, but that ain't cutting it, so... anyone know what could cause this?

Also, sometimes the computer seems to freeze up after it hasn't been used for some time, it just doesn't respond - the monitor just stays blank. I've tried disabling the computer from going to sleep/putting the monitor to sleep, but it still seems to be doing it while in the login screen... anyone know what I can do about this?

And last problem: whenever I'm trying to shut the computer down, it hangs after the orange bar has disappeared in the splash screen. Restarting works fine, so I believe it's something to do with actually powering the rig off... suggestions?

I don't know if this is related, but at bootup it displays a message something along the lines of "BIOS fails age cutoff, ACPI=FORCE is required to enable ACPI"... something like that.

Code:
dmesg | more
Post that in here. Maybe we can find that error.

I just realised that the code will probably be way to long. Try this instead.

Code:

Code:
dmesg > errorlog.txt
And copy and paste it here.

But is it as simple as "try Xubuntu, blah blah blah..."? Can I simply install Xubuntu on Ubuntu without losing any of my apps, files or things like FF bookmarks, e-mail accounts and stuff? Is it possible to simply morph GNOME to XFCE (I've done GNOME->KDE before)? I'll probably try going with Xubuntu as a last resort...

It is exactly the same as 'morphing' GNOME to KDE, only you are changing GNOME to XFCE instead. Xubuntu, the distro, is specifically designed to be lightweight, so it includes things like Thunar instead of Nautilus and XFCE instead of GNOME. You could keep your current installation, install XFCE and migrate to Xubuntu's lightweight packages slowly, if you feel the need for more 'pep' in your applications.

How tedious process is migrating the packages? I'm fairly nooby with Linux, I may just wipe my current partition and fresh-install Xubuntu if it's too hard to morph it and so on...

BTW, is Xubuntu an "official" distro or is it purely community-supported?

[ 0.000000] ACPI: Disabling ACPI support
That explains the reason it freezes when you don't use it. ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface and needs a BIOS from 2000 or higher.

I think that the RSDP is the cause of your other problems but I'm not completely sure. A little research says that it is a hard drive issue.

Sorry I it took so long to reply, I went through you're whole log.

Aside from the missing ACPI issue, it sounds like some piece of hardware is unstable. You need a new rig anyway.

Okay, I've just enabled ACPI in BIOS (Power Management was disabled altogether). How do I force it on?

I know... this is just a temporary solution until the economy here gets better so I can get a new riggy.

Like the nice bootup message said, put acpi=force in the kernel command line at boot. You can do this once by just putting it in at boot time (a very good idea in case it doesn't work) or make it permanent by editing /boot/grub/grub.conf .

How would go about doing that? I did "sudo nautilus" in the terminal, went to /boot/grub but there wasn't a file called grub.conf... and yes I did enable viewing of hidden files (Ctrl+H, was there something else I was supposed to do?)...

So did it actually work to boot up with acpi=force? Don't even bother with this if it didn't.

I think on Ubuntu they call it menu.lst instead. I don't know why.

Try the following:

sudo gedit(or whatever text editor you use) /boot/grub/menu.lst (I actually think the file you are looking for is menu.lst, but I'm not sure)

That should get you in to the grub menu file. If you want to add it at boot, wait until grub loads and hit the button to edit the boot command line. Add acpi=force at the end of that line, then hit 'b' (I think) to boot.

UPDATE:
I also enabled APM in BIOS and did the acpi=force thingy, I don't know which one did it but regardless now I don't get those weird freezes after long periods of not using the rig. However, for some reason the computer still doesn't seem to shut down properly, it freezes up after the orange bar disappears altogether... and the other problems mentioned in Post #1 (lockupts when dragging & dropping, using Amarok) still remain. I tried scanning my HDs in recovery mode, but it said that running the check for mounted drives can cause serious filesystem damage, so I need to run the scan off a LiveCD... how would I do that? I'm not sure if the hard drives/file system are causing these problems, but I'd like to rule them out and learn something new anyways, so...

The easiest way to check your filesystems is to run "sudo touch /forcefsck" and then restart. You should also be able to add "forcefsck" into the boot options at the boot menu.

See also "Is your hard drive about to die?" thread in my sig.
