I installed 11.3 with KDE on Sunday evening. Every thing worked fine.
I installed my hp1020 printer everything worked fine. (added Make and c and C++ packages)
I installed Opera, stil no problem
I tried to play a Audio streaming broadcast. Error message. DO you want to download necessary files. Yes
Also downloaded Realplayer
Then I left the PC to do its thing, as I had to go out.
When I got back the codecs were installed and I wanted to install Realplayer. System hangs
Since then te system hang intermittently. After a few seconds or few minutes things will just freeze.
The mouse pointer still works but nothing nothing nothing else works. I have to reset via hard reset/ the button on the case.
So I reinstalled 11.3 but the problem still occurs. (with format partition option)
So i thought that somehow 11.3 remembers the options to install the drivers that cause the problem. I say this because some of the desktop changes that I made on the first install, eg change background to blue from green is still activated.
I moved the installation to a new partition on a completely different HD.
Still the same issue
Previously I had 10.? and 11.1 installed but used it for a while and then gave up. This problem however never occurred before.
I am posting this via XP and have no intermittent hanging etc so I doubt wether it is a hdd error or memory or something like that!
As I am a newbie of the prettiest variety I do not know where to find the error logs.
