RE: Apps Crashing a Lot
Have you guys tried ctrl+alt+backspace to get back to the console instead of
(i) rebooting the box and (ii) telnetting from another machine to issue a
init 1!!! If that doesn't work, try ctrl+alt+FX (where X is the number
representing the console 1 to 6). You also might want to determine the
reason(s) for the "crashes"...it may be caused by a rogue app or
something...such feedback to the developers is important as bugs can then
get fixed promptly and everyone can go about their daily lives again!
