Unhappy why mandriva 10.2 gnome2.8 system freezes upon resizing/opening window/new window


Greetings,
I recently upgraded from 10.1 to 10.2. I noted my harddrive was failing, so I
decided to upgrade while switching drives. Under 10.1 using the latest/last version
of XFree and the nv driver my system was stable. Now after upgrading to 2005 LE/10.2,
I cannot run an Xorg session w/o locking up the system hard. This occurs in other wm/desktops as well e.g. kde, xfec.
The only way to get out is the <Cntrl><Alt><SysRq>,r,s,e,i,u,b/o key sequence to reboot or shutdown the system

My video card is an Nvidia GEforce4 MX 4000 AGP with 128mb. Unfortunately, my
Xorg.0.org log file sees it as pci at slot 3. I am not a complete newbie, but
many times, I need help with cmd syntax and what it means. Oh, and I'm for now using lynx,
which I am not close to any proficiency, so I don't know if I can attach my xorg
log file or diagnotic output from my system. Apparently, from a run of lsmod agpart is loaded as nvidia-agp
.xsession-errors has: Gnome Message: gnome_execute_async_with_env_fds: returning -1 and
3 gnome-panel error messages of unable to load panel stock icon.

Thanks in advance,

Terry

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Sorry 'bout that.

Sorry about that. I wasn't aware that I had cross posted my question. I'm just trying to get familiar with lynx. I have never been forced to use
a text base web browser before .
