    KDE 3.5.x is a very stable release and you should not face with such issues.
    There could be something wrong with your graphics card driver.
    Does the keyboard freeze when this happens? Would you be able to do Ctrl-Alt-F1 and login to console?

    It happens with KDE. Don't worry, get the latest updates and everything will be fine. Or install XFCE - like I did. It's just ~30 MB, half of KDE's oxygen icon package.

    From what you describe, this looks like a memory problem. I suggest you install memtest386, it makes an entry in the bootloader menu. Run memtest completely, i wouldn't be suprised if one of the bars is rotten.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    I had the same problem and i solved it.

    I belive the problem is not KDE but in the /etc/fstab file and in the yeast partitioning tool.

    We all used the yeast partitioning tool, that had a default way to identify the hardisk devices by id. This is in the fstab options dialog of the partitioning tool.

    Probably in your /etc/fstab file you have some rows like:
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_XXXX_YYYY_ZZZZZ-part6 ....

    I belive this will cause conflicts with udev, but i am not sure o it.

    In any way i solved my problem changing the default, into fstab options dialog, from device id to name id, in the radio buttons that specify the way to mount the devices in /etc/fstab.

    So i got an /etc/fstab with rows like:

    /dev/sda6 ........................

    and my system work. So i hope for you.

    Bye.

    Finger salutes (Affengriffe):
    - Frozen system seems indifferent to keyboard and mouse inputs:
    | - Tried: Crtl + Alt + C / X / Z / (Double)Back / Ins / Del / Esc / F1-12 / Pause; Alt + Tab / F1-12
    | - Perhaps still to test: Crtl + Alt + L; Crtl + Alt + Shift + Del / Up / Down

    Graphics:
    - Free drivers (standard installation): Problem already occured; on the other hand I experienced 10.2 live journeys as foolproof.
    - Proprietary NVidia drivers:
    | - G02 drivers (actually for GeForce 6+): Either system was just in a good temper or this really stabilized; but no 3D acceleration; so I uninstalled.
    | - (dedicated) G01 drivers: Deliver desired graphic power; but hardly no effect to balance; even with recommended (manual) NV-GLX activation.

    XFCE:

    Start-up:

    | It may be possible to correct the problem by adding

    Anyhow the browser let's me surf.

    On any tried desktop (KDE, XFCE, IceWM) happen quite similar accidents; they look rather GUI independent.

    Memtest86+ v.2.01:
    | Pass complete, no errors,...
    Every RAM that I received as a brand new module always passed successfully such examinations.
    Only concering disk drives I can complain of damages (because worn out or wrong plugged (FDD)).
