I have been trying to nail down the cause for my system crashing. When it does crash.I can't kill the application,I have to reboot and start over.
So far it seems like if I only use one browser my system seems to be stable. If I open more then one I will for sure crash. The system doesn't seem to care which browser it crashes on.
Could this be a networking problem?
The only exception is that Mozilla 0.9.7 (running by itself) will lock up my system if it runs into certain dynamic pages. CSS Dynamic Menus seem to be a problem. I roll over them and all works well and then I hit one and the sytem locks.
I sure hope I don't become a pest, this transition is full of challenges. The good thing is that every time I feel like giving up on it, Linux Impresses me with what it can do.
I am using RedHat 7.2, I used a rpm to install Opera and for Mozilla I used the "mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz". I am trying to force myself to do this without rpms.
For Opera I just let the Redhat package manager install it. For Mozilla I followed the directions from their site. Still haven't got the Java working yet,got tired and went to bed,just have to get the symlink correct.
I have been launching the new Mozilla from a terminal(haven't tried to add it to a menu yet) window,but when it crashes the system locks and I have to reboot.
I went in and turned on somethings in linuxconf tonight.If it souded like something related to dhcp or tcp/ip stuff. So far I have had Opera, Mozilla and Konqueror up for a while and haven't crashed yet:).
I sure would like to get Mozilla working well I like the way pages rendor better even though Opera is a little faster.
I just can't aford to be in the middle of a project and have to reboot.
