[Bug 1215513] Re: System locks up, requires hard reset


Kenneth, zram-config is a red herring. Even if you purge it completely
and set up zram manually,

modprobe zram
echo -n 67108864 > /sys/block/zram/size
mkswap /dev/zram0
swapon /dev/zram0

You still get the error messages and eventually the lock-ups. This is
not a script problem, it's a kernel problem.

Bug description:
  Since I started using 3.8.0-29 I experienced system lock ups at random
  times. First one was while running Virtualbox (windows guest) but
  later have been without virtualbox running for example while shutting
  down or while reading a webpage.

  I could not find any relevant log, but I'd post any log file
  considered useful.

  This has hapened in 2 different machines (the one im reporting from is
  intel with intel graphics and the other is AMD with radeon graphics).
  Both 64 bits.

  Up until 3.8.0-27 inclusive I had not had a lockup in years in any of
  those machines. I have been running Ubuntu 64 bit since at least 2008
  in one of them.
