My Linux keeps on freezing.


Hello.
I've been trying to install stuff for some days, and I noticed one very disappointing thing.
Whenever I input "make", my linux will freeze after some time. Cursor doesn't move, keyboard doesn't do anything and so on. I've tried to install SSH-3.2.9.1 and oer, both had the same problem. I've mandrake 10.

This is very irritating because I can't use my comp due this freezing.
Specs:
-1700mhz P4
-512mt SDR
-220W powersource

Thanks in advance.

Freezing = hard lock-up, you need to reset?

Or freezing = machine continues to work but
becomes irresponsive?



Cheers,
Tink

Machine continues to work, but you can't do anything, and I have to reset. So I think it's both

Can you switch to a console, does it stay reachable
via ssh/telnet/whatever?

When you say it continues working, does that mean
the HDD light just doesn't come off at all, or can you
(after a reset) verify that it did what it was meant to?


Cheers,
Tink
