Linux not running software


Is the any tool that I can get to be able to run software desiegned to work on windows, to run on mandrake 9.1 and where can I get it. Also I have another problem. When linux restarts or shuts down it hangs. No error messages just stuck.

When it hangs, are typing halt, or reboot? Or are you shutting down in KDE? Does it drop into the console before it hangs?

Try editing your /etc/inittab file, and setting the run level to 3

# The default runlevel is defined here
id:3:initdefault:

when you exit X to shut down, do it the good old way (type halt or shutdown). Its possible that is a bug in X. That happened to me sometimes with my old PC.
