I even tried giving it more RAM, but that didn't help.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

What have you tried to do to fix this? You've added RAM, I see. Anything else? Googled the basic error message? –  Frank Nov 6 '12 at 15:08
Are you using a custom texture pack? –  fredley Nov 6 '12 at 15:09

From what I can see, the report states Null Pointer Exceptions for both OpenGL and the Texture Pack.

To me this suggests that you may not have OpenGL installed (or not correctly configured) - perhaps you're missing a video driver for you particular graphics hardware. Ensure that your video card drivers are installed and/or up to date. For AMD and Nvidia graphics cards, you will need to install the closed-source driver provided by the manufacturer - Ubuntu usually displays a warning/notification about this near the top bar.

As for the texture pack: perhaps you are using a custom pack that is either buggy or become corrupted? Try removing any texture packs from the texture pack folder.
