Hang Up

All my linux programs keep hanging up!

When I click programs from the quick launch thing next to the Red Hat icon the whole 'start' menu freezes up.

It's almost impossible to identify a problem like this. Have you done any changes at the system lately? Or is it a fresh install?. How bad is your crash? (eg. total freeze, the numlock, capslock and scrool lock lights blinks and the computer freezes or are you still able to press ctrl + alt + F1-F6 keys to access a terminal). Anyway, try going into /var/log and search for the log where you think the problem is (boot, gdm, Xfree) There might have some clues to what or where your problem is. Linux is not supposed to work like that

No, just the GUI 'task bar' freeze

I'm still able to access Terminal and use the desktop

I'm re-installing RedHat as it was a new installation and I only had a few programs installed on it.

I'll see what happens

Ciao! SBB
