Hey guys, this is just to try and get some of my frustrations out to the interwebz and hopefully find someone who’s had the same kind of problems as I have and who might be able to help me solve them.
Basically, I’ve described my problem here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1703000
I installed ubuntu via wubi within my windows partition but I experienced random system freezes where the whole system would stall. Not kernel panicks because the numlock, capslock lights weren’t flashing. For a while I thought it to be caused by something related to the wireless driver but extensive testing of that hypothesis rejected that (system crashed even when wireless was turned off using the hardware switch and I also used ndiswrapper to switch to the same driver that my windoze install uses with no better results).
I have no idea what was causing the problems and I ended up giving up on ubuntu (*sobs*) because the freezes ended up being too frequent.
