First of all please excuse me if this is posted in the wrong place or anything like that.
Let me describe my problem. Having just bought a near new Mini 5101 as a nice second machine that’s almost as portable as the tablet it’s replacing I immediately installed OpenSUSE on it. I had to boot OpenSUSE 11.3 from USB, install that and do an upgrade to 11.4, a very smooth process indeed.
However I am finding that the netbook has a tendency to crash from time to time. I do not think that it is heat related, I of course could be wrong, but thanks to my new cooling pad it’s ice to the touch. It seems to happen under the below circumstances :-
-When streaming MP4 video streams using Totem
-When downloading at a very fast rate.
I believe that it could be something to do with the WLAN card using too much resources when running at great speed. The WLAN adaptor is a Broadcom BCM43224. I am using the driver supplied by the Packman repo.
Any help/insight/experience/log files to look at will all be greatly appreciated. Thank you all,
