That's not much to go by ... what's the scenario? Console, GUI? What's
the level of activity (top, vmstat, iostat, ...)?



Cheers,
Tink

Are you certain that an easy to use distrib such as Ubuntu or Fedora would not support your language?
Why did you need easyurpmi and not use the official Mandriva repository? (I'm not familiar with Mandriva so maybe what i say is stupid)

We are in a spot there. Is the hardware good or not. It was never tested at the factory for linux so it could fail all day on linux and run windows all day.

We also can't determine if your downloaded cd is correct. Did you check md5 or shal?

I lived in PI a long time ago. I'd wonder about that system. Run memtest on it for a few days. Run the hard drive diags too.

So you have installed Mandriva and the system hangs if you put load on it. Check the cooling system. Check if the heatsink is sitting plain on the CPU. Check if the fan is running. Have you used thermal paste, and how much of it?

Just a side note: Building a system (plugging the hardware together) is rather easy. Planning a system requires a little bit of knowledge about the hardware. Troubleshooting the hardware requires more than only a little bit of knowledge about the hardware and how it works together. If you lack the knowledge to either plan a system or to troubleshot it when it doesn't work as expected after building it you simply shouldn't build it in the first place. Go to a shop and let them plan and build it for you, or buy a pre-built system.

using or updating easurpmi.zarb.org is the best way if you need to update your system on mandriva.
