Getting back on topic...
Rony, the only reason that Linux "hangs" is due to a driver / kernel bug
or hardware failure. What was the hardware that you were using. Please
post it. Also, if only X is crashing then you might have to fine tune
the config file to get it going.
My hardware is most nixy. It has seen a lot of linux distros. P4 2.4
Ghz., Intel 845 GEBV2 (one of the very good mobos from Intel) , 256 MB
RAM. The thing that gets me bugged is that I have to still tackle basic
installation problems rather than new ones, in the new distros. But
maybe the LFY DVD was crap.
One other thing I would like to add and that is that the new distros are
heavy on resources so those using 256 MB RAM machines could safely
create a 2 GB swap for better performance. I was facing a bug in OO in
Ubuntu 6.10 where it would give a 'force shutdown' error every time I
closed OO. It would disappear if left unatteded and shut down properly
after a slow delay. Plus opening 2 to 3 applications made the pc slow.
After adding more swap space, this problem does not appear. so those
using 256 mb machines should use a 2 GB swap space.
