What the....trying to get away from the relentless unstabililty of windows.
Proudly converted to FC5 after a 2.5 mth wait and since updating a couple of days ago I´ve never had so many freeze ups on a system ever! Just about anything I do the system freezes
1. Copying old data to Linux box over Samba (Gig network) - IT FREEZES!
2. Everytime the screen saver comes on - IT FREEZES!
3. Almost everytime I turn the PC on I have to press the restart button because you guessed it IT FREEZES!
P4 640 3.2GHz
Gigabyte GA-8I915P Duo Pro mainboard
Radeon X600 PCI-e Graphics Card
1GB PC3200 Kingston RAM
SATA 150MB HDD´s
Any Idea´s? I have a standard setup with most packages installed. In the process of upgrading I also lost 220GB worth of data: 6yr collection of mp3´s, movies, documents, all my emails, 3 yrs of uni work....NO I DIDN´T have it backed up and yes that´s my fault.
Used fdisk to delete my old NTFS partition (a 230GB HDD) had all my data copied to a ext3 partion on another borrowed drive. When I issued fdisk /dev/sdb1 and went through selection appropriate options (so i thought) it also fdisked /dev/sdc1 (i.e. all my data).
I´m very close to going back to stupid windows....please save me!!!!
