Was just about to move from Windows to Linux but... :(


Hi guys, thanks for all of your support through all the forums, It was quite a read since the week I've been on with Linux. I have Slackware 10 on my other partition, typing this on my Windows XP . . I really loved Linux, especially learning it, I stayed till morning every day to get the thing as stable as I could, and to learn this and that. I was a journey I won't forget but I've began slowly, booting to windows day by day.

Since the upgrade to KDE 3.3 it just keeps on crashing. I need Dreamweaver and Photoshop on it, havn't tried them yet, but will do, just need support from you guys. I'm not a complete newbie by the way. Been developing software, games, advanced design, and programming, but all of it on my Windows. I just want to move on to Linux, HELP!!!

We're going to need a little bit more information about the KDE crashes. What happens? Does it even load up? If so, what are you doing when it crashes?

It happens when I have sound turned on and I believe theres conflict from one the drivers. I'm using CM8738 sound and there must be a fix somewhere. It just hangs, the mouse, keyboard everything, except the reset button or the main power supply.

Downgrade kde and get hold of gimp.
I loved KDE 3.3, customized it to the best look and feel. Linux is fast and stable, I love it, but I still fear crash when writing a 1000 line PHP non stop.

I'm not trying to be a troll or Gate's supporter, but I'm just trying to love Linux
