Suse 10.1 freezes randomly
I am not sure if it is such a good idea to boot with noapic option for laptops? What impact does this have on the hardware, if anything at all?
In any case, I installed Arch 64 bit instead of Suse and it seems to work really well without any random freezing and so on. Also, it was really easy to configure even for a newbie like me and the only thing I have not configured is xorg using ati drivers. Everything else including lvm setup, suspend, hibernate and cpu frequency scaling work with a little bit of work, just as they have explained on the web site.
I do not seem to miss Suse any more since everthing that Suse can do can be accomplished through Arch or any other distribution that call for a bit of work at first but once set up, easy enough to administer. I am particularly happy with the thought that I do not have to reinstall the distribution if I wanted a new release. this is great!
