Mouse Freezing

Hi there.

I have RedHat 9 installed. Everytime I try to install something or open "Network" my mouse freezes! I use MS USB Intelli, anybody had the same problem??

The symptoms you describe may be memory related - i.e. the app is using large amounts of memory and therefore the mouse movement cannot be accomodated. Perhaps you need to look at the swap space you have available should be => memory. RH has a lot of daemons running and I found Mandrake, which is similar, very cumbersome as well in this respect. When I switched to Debian and was able to tune the system to my own needs I found I had a very useable system.

I'm about to switch to Debian =/. Everybody keeps telling me that Debian is better.
