  1. Linux: "this is absolute insanity"...3 reinstalls...one hour uptime

    "i thought i'd got rid of this problem but 2-3 days ago had to a reinstall
    and the boot command that sorted the freezes just doesn't work this time and
    its even more unstable than b4. ive reinstalled 3 times in the last 3 days
    with 2 different cd's both were checked for defects, tried 8 different boot
    commands on each install applications work only when they feel like it
    including terminal!!!

    i get an hour at the very most the freeze kicks in, i know exactly when its
    happened because the cursor jumps just prior to the freeze, can sometimes
    still use firefox to certain degree though which i find completely baffling,
    the mouse wheel scrolls the page the icons to the left of the url bar are
    clickable but not the menu options above the url bar, links in the pages are
    clickable sometimes, but everything else is just no go like everyone else
    posting in this thread."

    His problem is that nobody has explained the distribution dance to him.
    He is supposed to switch distributions with each re-install until he finds
    one that works for him.
