Hi guys,

since about 4 weeks im having a strange problem.
From time to time my xfce4 desktop crashes and returns back to the slim login manager. Im having absolutly no idea what could be the reason.
I also cant see any certain pattern when or why it happens. Sometimes it crashes when i start a browser (Firefox, Opera), sometimes when i start thunderbird or a game.
I found the following message with dmesg:

Code:
[   46.382500] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): enp4s0f2: link becomes ready

(just had again two crashes...)

Does anybody have a clue what i could try/check? Or which logfiles could help to analyse this problem?

First suspect: bad RAM. Re-seating it may or may not fix it.

if you're running systemd you're not alone.... lightdm is a little less buggy with systemd.
