Sounds like something has become corrupt.
The X server is crashing - if you log in to runlevel 3, you shouldn't have this problem. Of course, you will be text only.

Check the syslogs for clues.
You can use the rpm utility to check the integrity of the installed packages (those that were installed by rpm). But if the problem is old and failing hardware, this won't help.

This is probably RH's way of telling you to upgrade your OS and/or your hardware.

???

Nobody can help you without more info.

Of course, you can always reinstall RH9 from scratch. If the problem persists, then it must be hardware.

Checking the logs involves work and the OP obviously doesn't want to do any work, just to get an answer. That is what you get when you pay for support. Otherwise post back with the relevant section of your log or don't expect an answer.

... I'm inclined to concur. Have you seen his other posts? He treats everyone like this.

what do you mean by saying...

"Checking the logs involves work and the OP obviously doesn't want to do any work, just to get an answer."

perhaps you think you are too smart...
or perhaps something has gotten into you...

just clarify me ... what do you mean by your post...

I will clarify. We are all putting in our own time here, we don't have to help you, we are here because we want to help. Most people with questions will do everything in their power to provide us with the information we require to fully understand the problem and to try any solution we suggest and report back whether or not it was successful.

The way you are replying is very counter-productive.

What was the point of this? Was Simon's solution to much work to try so you'd rather wait and see if something simpler came along? While I understand that language can be a difficult barrier to overcome, you are continually expressing yourself as though you expect us to solve your problem and provide you with a one-line answer with no input from yourself. This will not happen! It's a two-way street, if you want us to give answers, you need to be prepared to try some stuff for us else we won't bother helping you anymore and you'll need to find another forum. I haven't been as resourcful as Simon and checked out your previous posts but I've seen enough of his contributions around to be quietly confident that was he says about the way your treat forum members here is true.

There you go, you now have a detailed explaination of my post and my assurances that I won't be replying to this thread anymore. Best of luck with your problem, may I kindly suggest you try the X logs and then system log, you should find a problem there which will lead you to a solution.
