Massive instability problems
I'm going nuts. Just bought a new system, hardware seems fine, yet Linux will not stay up for more than 5 minutes.
My system is Celeron 2.66, Asus p5s800-VM motherboard, 256 mb RAM.
I first installed Ubuntu 5.10, then removed it completely and installed VectorLinux SOHO 5.0.1. I have also booted the system with Knoppix and Puppy Linux.
All have similar problems: windows randomly disappear, especially Firefox, KDE goes crazy, system hangs, and on Vector all open processes die (including sometimes KDE) and I am asked to login again.
I have checked all the hardware to the best of my ability including HD, CPU and RAM. I have updated the BIOS.
What is the problem???
thanks in advance
