May be it is problem with H/W. But I have seen this in my previous
system which was Celeron with a Mercury M/B.
I forgot to mention that the entire system freezes not just a program.
Lot of times I have seen that certain programs are not responding
propely(especially when closing the application) like Nautilus.
Where to get more info on Linux compatible H/W ?.
Why not create a page in wiki about the hardware people have worked
with that goes well with Linux ?.
