http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I am experiencing system freezes, the type where ALT sysrqd REISUB etc have no effect, and the only escape is a hard reboot. These have been happening mainly when encoding DVDs with the tovid suite, but not exclusively so. Although I am running Lucid alpha 64 bit, I suspect hardware failure. I ran Memtest86+ for 24 hours. There were 31 passes and 0 errors, so I am assuming the memory is good. For the HDD, I downloaded smartmontools.
