I've been having weird troubles with my box despite what Linux ditro I use.
currently the box (OpenSuse 11.2) freezes at the first GUI screen where the lizard is displayed with progress bar under it.
I tried to start the box with "Fails Safe" option so it got stuck at this point:
4.565474] ohci 1394 0000:01:07.0: PCI INT a -> link [APC4] GSI 19 (level,low) IRQ 19
I had a very similar problem when I had Ubuntu 9.04 installed. At that time the box freezed right before the login screen.
Any idea what is causing this? I think it is a HW issue, but what exactly?
