Hi @ all,
yesterday I made a dist-upgrade on my pc with core i7-860 and Nvidia graphics GeForce GTX 260 and two monitors. I now have kernel 2.6.37-2.slh.2-aptosid-amd64 and use the nouveau-driver.
From time to time (3 to 4 times a day) the desktop freezes, only the mouse moves, but does not react to clicks Sad
This time it happened when I tried to open a .xls and a .ods file from Dolphin. A dialog "Dokumentwiederherstellung" from Libre Office opened and now I am stuck. At this time Dolphin, iceweasel and two terminals were open too.

I can connect to the machine from another pc via ssh, but top shows nothing strange (for me).

      Code:
root@siduxbox:~# top

top - 10:02:18 up 47 min,  5 users,  load average: 0.04, 0.05, 0.10
Tasks: 162 total,   1 running, 161 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s):  0.0%us,  0.0%sy,  0.0%ni,100.0%id,  0.0%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st
Mem:   8194356k total,  1179892k used,  7014464k free,   162008k buffers
Swap:        0k total,        0k used,        0k free,   485928k cached


Can someone tell me where and how to search along?

/var/log has many logs you can look at, like syslog, kern.log, messages etc.
i would also look at the hardware side of things. i had this kind of freezes with a broken PSU.

I wouldn't use nouveau with a GTX260.

Thanks devil and towo.
Saturday was not one of my best days Sad

I had a look in the log-files and found a segmentation fault in Xorg.0.log and a message that the server might be in an infinite loop. I found out, that if I only used one monitor (set the second to "klone of..." everything works fine. The crash only happens if I try to have different pictures on the two monitors.

So do you think, that this is a temporary problem? Does it make sense to post my Xorg.0.log-file here, or is this a known problem?
For a while I can live with one screen.
