Hardrake causes PC to hang


Hi Folks

I've just installed Mandrake 9.2 after using Suse 9.0 for a bit. I'm a complete Linux Newbie and wanted to try a few friendly distros to see which I preferred. I'm also using a second PC so have the luxury of 'fiddling'

After installing Mdk 9.2 on the first boot up the machine froze while the progress indicator was about a third of the way along. After some fiddling around I managed to use the interactive boot and by a process of elimination discovered the problem occurs whenever hardrake is run. I've commented this out of my startup so that I can now boot into X and use KDE (looks nice ) but whenever I run hardrake (either in a console or in X) the machine freezes.

I doubt it's a hardware problem as everything worked fine in Suse.

Hardware is:

Athlon XP 1900+
Jetway M/B with a Via 266B Chipset
Geforce 3 Card
SB Live Value
Realtek RTL8139

All of which appear to be detected.

All suggestions welcome - it's tough being a newbie

Simply run Mandrake control centre - then click on the 'system' icon and then 'DrakXServices' This lists all the services that are run on startup - and whether they are currently running ot stopped. You can also choose whether the services are automatically started at boot.

Nice'n'simple

I'm sure it's actually called hardrake or something very similar.
