hi
Thank you for reading my post
I have installed FC6 and now when i use its default installtion and settings it hangs too much and make me restart the machine.
for example when i drag and drop some items in desktop it hangs , after some minutes of working it hangs.....
my computer is OK as it works in windows for hours without intrruption.
here ismy hardware :
-CPU : Celeron D 2.53
-RAM : 1 GIG
-HDD : 2*SATA (linux is installed in one of them) 1*ATA
-partitioning : 60 GB as / partition and 2 GB as SWAP

I should say that the mouse pointers move but keyboard does not works and any click will result to nothing.
please let me know what more you need to hunt the possible bug.

You might check your logs. Don't know which ones specifically, but maybe /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log.
my computer is OK as it works in windows for hours without intrruption. Unfortunately, this means nothing.

Open a terminal and run top (type top and hit enter) and next time it hangs see if something in particular is chewing up resources (CPU or ram).

post your video card model too.

Someone may have an answer for you if you can supply any log errors or resource hogs that turn up in top.
