Computer crashes when clicking on View


I'm using redhat 9.0.
When I go to my home directory or any other directory, if I click on the view tab in the toolbar, my computer either resets or freezes up every time. All other functions work fine.
What can I do to fix this problem?

Thanks!
JW

To get you started:

Which program are you using? For instance, the `linux' console (Ctrl-Alt-F{1-6}) doesn't have a view tab (let alone a toolbar), and neither does xterm.

Nautilus has a toolbar, but there's no view tab. I'm thinking it might be some KDE app (konqueror, maybe).

What version of that program are you using? What version of the libraries it depends on?

How does it reset--immediately or by going to runlevel 6? Something inbetween?

When the computer freezes, can you login via ssh? Can you kill your X server?

Which graphics hardware are you using? Which software (drivers in particular)?

See also www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html. It links to an article about reporting bugs, which I suggest you read (in addition to Smart Questions itself).
