Linux Mint 9 Freezes/Hangs
When I boot up my system, it boots up normally after working for some time, it hangs and freezes showing some black and white vertical stripes blinking on a blank screen. I've tried rebooting the system using ALT+SysRq+REISUB for three times due to this problem.
I hope during the freeze that occurred for me, I was not able to access my mouse and keyboard (apart from hitting ALT+SysRq+REISUB ).
Application I'm working while facing the freeze: Firefox/Chromium with 5 Tabs, Rhythmbox, Nautilus.
Please refer the post in the linuxmint forum with subject "Mint 8 Helena hangs (total freeze) "
There seems to be a solution for linux mint 8 helena when faced with similar freezes and hangs in it and this resolution is mentioned in the first link I've provided.
Hence I've tried the following based on it:
1. I did not install the kernel as Isadora itself comes with the kernel 2.6.32
2. I added the repositories to /etc/apt/sources.list
3. Imported the appropriate GPG key successfully.
4. Executed sudo apt-get update successgully
5. However when I ran the command:
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel-2.4
I get the following:
Could someone please help me resolve these issues?
