fedora got crashed?


hey,

i installed fedora 2 days back and today i installed some of the softwares such as vlc player 1.x and opera10.5.when i started using these applications,fedora12 got crashed(showed me message error occured in kernel).since i am a newbie and dont know much abt linux or other distros should i stop using fedora and switch on to red hat linux 5 since the number of crashes over there are minimized!

Hard to say - I don't think fedora is that wonky. Kernel crash may as
well be a symptom of (semi-)broken hardware.

If you installed Fedora 2 just a few days ago, my opinion would be that that's a very bad idea. The latest version is 13...you are ELEVEN versions behind. You don't say what crashed, but I doubt the entire box crashed...more likely, just the application or the desktop GUI, but you don't provide many details.

But it's hard to say exactly WHAT could be wrong from your post. You first say "Fedora 2", then "Fedora 12", then you mention RedHat Linux 5. All are different...and RedHat Linux 5 is ANCIENT, unless you mean RedHat ENTERPRISE 5, in which case you should only load it, if you're paying for support. Otherwise, load CentOS.
