I'm using Ubuntu 17.04 32-bit edition and it crashes when I do some rendering in blender and also when I press add track for motion tracking.
My system configuration is as follows:
- Intel® core™ i3-3210 CPU @3.20GHz × 4
- 2 GB ram
- Graphics: intel® ivybridge Desktop ×86/MMX/SSE2
- OS: ubuntu 17.04 32-bit
- Swap size: 1GB
I don't have any graphic card but it shows something in All Settings → Details, on Windows I saw "Intel HD graphics" there.
free -h output from the terminal while running blender as asked by @ByteCommander:
Total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 1.7G 619M 423M 219M 663M 680M Swap: 975M 0B 975M
When Ubuntu crashes, it takes me to somewhere where it asks to choose an operating system, one of it is "recovery mode". Whatever I choose from them, it takes me to a terminal like something and prints loads of errors. If I leave the PC for some hours, it's still doing something, also printing something:
Busybox 1.x type help to get a list of built in commands initframs:_
This morning, blender freezes again (4th time in 4 days) and crashes after it, then Ubuntu freezes, doesn't respond to clicks, suddenly restarts and finally takes me to the black screen, printing:
[4521.250846] EXT4-fs error (device sda5): ext4_final_entry:1463 inode #8519685: comm upowered: reading directory iblock 0
This message is sticked on 38th line of my screen and it's over 5 hours from then. What is it reading for so long?. To solve this I reinstalled again and again.
Shall I use Windows again instead, because I have animated some models in blender (on Windows) but in Ubuntu I end up with a crash even when just copying contents of a DVD to system.
Ubuntu login screen doesn't ask for password sometimes and lets anybody in to my desktop.
Also if this is a graphics card problem, what card would you recommend of 4GB which will work on blender, as blender is not supported by many graphic cards.
