Constant crashes in Ubuntu 18.04


Dear Atom community,

I am experiencing constant crashes with the Atom editor on my Ubuntu 18.04 machine.
This does not appear to be tied to any input or other activity - the editor crashes equally often ( 2x every hour on average) when just left open, or when currently just typing some code in it.
I have tried safe mode which did not resolve the issue. Is there anything else I can do to get to the bottom of this issue?

Atom    : 1.34.0
Electron: 2.0.16
Chrome  : 61.0.3163.100
Node    : 8.9.3

It is worth mentioning that I am usually running some CPU intensive tasks alongside on the machine (load is usually 90-100%), but other standard applications seem to be fine with that.

Thanks a lot!



Can you confirm how you installed Atom?

Also, the latest release version is 1.36.0, can you update and see if that makes any difference?

Lastly, are you working on the same project every time there’s a crash or does Atom crash with different projects/no projects open?
