SuSe 9.0 crashes following Linuxant modem driver installation
I'm a bit annoyed.
As a newbie I expected that there would be difficulties getting hardware to work and also in understanding the ins and outs of a linux system. However I did not expect to have to deal with the operating system actually crashing.
I have a Sony Vaio PCG-F808K which has an HSF Modem. These modems require the installation a Linuxant driver which costs about $14. It took me ages to get the modem working.
Now it dials up fine, however after a couple of minutes online the whole system stalls. No response from anything. I've left it for a couple of hours, but eventually I have to bite the bullet and pull the power supply and battery out.
In contrast, even though I've tried my best, I've NEVER been able to get WinXP to crash. I thought one of the great benifits of linux was its stability, would somebody please explain what I am doing wrong?
