James, I'm still figuring out the rules for freelists.org, so no quotes from you last email. **************** I can surf all day with Netscape without problem. I have used Mozilla too without locking the system up, though Mozilla has it's own issues. If I stay away from Konqueror, I never have lockups. One thing I didn't try was working in KDE with the generic nVidia driver. I was using it while I was compiling the new kernel since the proprietary driver src rpm has to be rebuilt against the kernel that will be using it, but I didn't do any browsing in KDE during that time. I like the proprietary drive since it gives me hardware opengl acceleration for when I am tinkering around in Blender. Guess I could restore the original XF86config-4 file and give it a try. Would be nice to get back into KDE, though I don't have a problem with XFCE. One other thing I did today was register at SourceForge so I could post bug reports for some of the software that I have been using. I have been trying to get Gphoto2 to work. Seems that they fixed a serial lock problem that I was having with beta3, but now it won't detect the serial ports! At least the orginal gphoto works well enough to download my photos. I am kind of curious about what kind of kernels the rest of you build...modular or monolithic. I have been using modular kernels recently, but I generally build a monolithic kernel for the first run on a new kernel...easier to recover from, since I can just boot from the old kernel if something goes wrong. Chuck P.S .I wrote this last night, but had problems sending it. Woke up this morning to a locked up machine. The only thing running was the screen saver. A clue? I switched over to the generic video driver to see if there is any difference. Guess I could try upgrading XFree86. ------------------------------------ This is the Juneau-LUG mailing list.
