I re-installed Calibre(via terminal) some time ago, after it had been crashing on me a lot! It is now crashing all the time, and the whole system with it.
The thing is awesome, but not so awesome when it crashes!
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
Calibre version is 0.8.3 Not that thing
in the repository.
Repeated crashes on start (no device connected) might indicate bad hardware.
I would suggest running Memtest 86+ from the (GRUB) Boot menu (or Live CD) for 1 or mor PASSes (many tests in a PASS)
Calibre can be heavy on the Memory use.
Lint in fans and fins is another common issue.
