I have an annoyance that I need to deal with. I can't stand this anymore, and I need to work.
When I switch to a tty, the computer freezes. Anytime I ctrl+alt+F? the computer locks up tight. The caps light doesn't respond; nothing gets a response; leaving it sit does not clear it up. I suspect a kernel panic.
I today got the same response when changing resolution from Configure-KDesktop
I can find nothing obvious in the logs. I need to have a better idea where/how to look for this issue.
The system is:
Debian Lenny (last updated last week; dealing with this problem several weeks)
Pentium 3 1Ghz
Ram 256 MB
3Dfx Interactive, Inc. Voodoo Banshee
ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 RF/SG AGP
