    Red face Linux Hang


    I have P-I, 80 MB RAM 133 MHZ PC with two OS. Win 98 & RH 7.2. I am booting linux from boot disk.
    It works fine till i am working on it but when it is ideal , PC gets hangs and I have to reset my PC to boot again.I checked with Win 98 & found its working without any problem.
    Is there any reason to get Linux hangs ?? Any modification to be done ??

    Thanks in advance..

    How big is your swap? How much space did you alot for your various important directories (var, usr, /, bin, etc.)? RH 7.2 is known as a buggy distro. Perhaps there is a hardware issue causing the bug? Which Windows Manager (Gnome, KDE, etc.) are you using in Linux?

    replace? man that PC he is using is more than fine for any Linux or BSD distro, a 386 is what? 11 MHz? a P1 is faster than that, and so there fore hes still above minimum requirements. and i agree with mittens, might wanna take a look at your swap file.
