3h and a new freezing! This time with paused waterfall and minimized fldigi!
Maybe I will install Lubuntu when I have the time. For now next time it
freezes SA6BQZ-1 will be of the air.
Would be nice to get som feedback from OL5RTL if he as updated and gets the
same problem!?

What I almost always do is to pause the waterfall. It's no use having it
enabled when I am not around to watch it and it uses slightly less cpu then.
I'm on lubuntu 12.04 with stock fldigi and I heard so is PI4TUE, not that it
should matter that you are on ubuntu but if it continues to lock up then it
could be worth switching.

Thanks David and Glenn for the feedback,
David, I installed this on a brand new HD! So no previous installation at
Glenn I will do this setup right now and get back with the result.

I had a similar problem with fldigi freezing up after I had installed the
1.8.0 server. Why it does it I don't know. What I did was to change the
waterfall WF to FFT. You will see the adjustment on the bottom left side of
the fldigi program. Then I run the fldigi in the background by selecting the
- on the upper right side of the fldigi program. It has been at least two
weeks without a freeze up. Try that and let us all know if it works for you.

After a lot of brainstorming together with Per (thanks Per for allowing me
to disturb you all the time at work) we finally got my server up working
The rig is now controlled by the server only using the setting that I got
from Rain for the IC-7200. RigCAt and HamLib is turned of.
The IC7200, with the new version and having the setting at the end of
freq.txt USB,USB,USB,USB,USB, made the rig turn of the data mode.
>This was something new having these settings with the 1.5 version with no
problem. Taking it away in the new installation (1.8, latest fldigi and
Ubuntu 12,04) made everything much better I noticed BUT one can newer be
totally happy after 6h fldifi  froze again!! So in a way I am back at square
one again!!!
Well I do not know what to do now! Burn it all up? I am more and more
guessing that this is not only a software problem but can be related to the
hardware. Maybe one rainy day I will install it all on an other computer to
see if there is any change.
The summer, when and if it comes, is to short to sit in the "spaceship" (as
my wife calls it) and fiddle around with computers or as Franz OE5RTL wrote:
"Have to go gardening now, my wife had broken her left leg, so I can not
spend much time for our wonderful hobby..." (hopes she gets better soon!)
I think it would be nice with a brainstorming meeting via Skype asap to
figure out the next step. Rein and Per has updated their systems and fldigi
is not freezing for them. Franz had these problems all the time and maybe we
can get some feedback from him if he updates to the new system. If he also
gets a freezing fldigi, then we have to units behaving the same way and we
can then start checking our hardware!?
Any other interesting ideas???
