Last night, I installed Jaunty UNR, ran the updates, and installed all the packages from Voria's repository. Everything seemed to be working fine. But as I was installing mysql, emacs, wine, and a few other packages in the Ubuntu Synaptic Package Manager, the machine locked up tight. No mouse, no restarting X, no CTRL-ALT-1 to console. I had to manually power off.
This is worrying, because it happened within 20 minutes of instaling Jaunty. It seems I have bad luck with Ubuntu. Most machines I have installed Ubuntu on in the past (with the exception of Intrepid on my NC-10) have had a lockup problem of this sort at one point or another. I thought it was all fixed since Intrepid ran so well on my NC-10, but now I'm worried.
Has anyone else had this complete lockup happen on their NC-10?
FYI, I was able to reboot and reinstall all of the same packages with no problems, so it clearly wasn't a package issue. Some sort of low level kernel/hardware/driver issue.
