http://askubuntu.com – I installed 10.04 32 bit, italian language, with the then-current updates some weeks ago on an Acer Aspire One 722 with Atheros wifi. I'm not using any proprietary driver. It worked fine till 4 days ago. Then it began to freeze occasionally. I tried to install the new updates but now it is freezing every time i use it. It usually happens during the login, or when connecting wifi or asking for super user password. When i updated last time the packets got installed, then the computer rebooted and freezed. FYI I have no previous experience with any linux distro. I'll be happy to provide you with (HowTos)
