The envirorment variable has to be created, but seem that don't work (see my previous message)
I've also tryed this solution on OpenSuse 10.1, the solution make the system more stable, but don't like on kubuntu.
I did as you said:
set the variable as you suggested.
The change seems permanent, since, after rebooting, I find the same variable ticked. Moreover, the machine has the same behaviour, with the same freeze of the screen. Am i doing somthing wrong?
Do you think that thermal problems can be envolved? The core temperature is always over 70 °C. Is this a prbolem?
