i recently installed gentoo and i love it... i have a problem tho...i'm currently using fluxbox, and when i open a mozilla browser, after a few seconds, my whole system freezes..the mouse pointer and everything else...i can't even swith to a different terminal... i had the same problem before with windows, but i fixed it by turning off the AGP 4X...i think i remember seeing the 4X setting in some config file in my linux box, but i forgot where i saw it...does anyone know how to disable the AGP4x in my system? i turned it off in the bios and nothing happened...i think X is still loading it tho, that's why my computer freezes...thanks to anyone in advance that can help me...
my specs are:
Asus P3V-4X
PIII 550mhz
512MB RAM
40g seagate barracuda
SB Live! (which is currently not working)
GeForce 2MX card

Hi,

possible hardware , bad memory, system overheating...

try to run memtest86 with all options turned on.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

but you can try to download Netscape , just to see if the problem remains, only Mozilla freezes, or some other applications to, after some time ?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Try using a blank page when mozilla starts up , sorry but I don't know how to do it , I mean where to find the conf file for this, but I'm searching for it, and will edit this post, once found.


Sincerely
Robert B
