analyzing lockups

Postby mike acker » 2018-04-01 18:55

I've been getting a hard-lock-out occasionaly recently

is there a particular log file i can check?

next time i'll try the alt-sysreq

ctrl-alt-backspace -- hasn't helped nor has alt-F2

i'm starting to suspect a memory fault...

You haven't written which DE you are using, which Debian version, etc.
Install inxi and post the ouput of
Code: Select all
inxi -F

I suggest you read man journalctl. You may find a clue in commands like
Code: Select all
journalctl -b -1 -p 3

Re: analyzing lockups -- the tracks

Postby mike acker » 2018-06-09 10:24

each time I've had a D-9 lockup recently:

1. I was running Firefox 58, 59, or 60 in terminal mode ( not really installed )

2. on the restart it appeared AdBlock Plus (ABP) -- had updated itself

Try removing Adblock Plus and installing Adblock.
Use the new web extension, xul extensions from the repo are not compatible with Firefox 57+.
