I'm wantiong to convert from Ubuntu to Fedora Core 6, but I'm having serious problems with it, problems which do not exist for me in Ubuntu 6.10. First of all, here are my system specs:
Intel e6300 @ 2.8 GHz
evga 7900 GS
SATA2 hard drive
2GB Patriot DDR2
The first lockups that happened were when I had the nVidia drivers from livna installed. Out of nowhere, everything would just freeze, mouse, windows, everything. The keyboard was also completely unresponsive, I could not do ctrl-alt-backspace for example. I was told by a member of these forums that adding a few kernel options would solve the issue. I tried it, but still got lockups. However, this time, I could control the mouse, just not click on anything.
So then I uninstalled the nvidia drivers and went to the nv driver. However, I still get the same lockups as before, where the mouse can move but not anythign else. Also, when doing a ctrl-alt-backspace, it just goes to a blank screen.
So this issue is a showstopper for me. Ubuntu and Windows XP work flawlessly on this hardware. I assume there is some issue with FC6 and one component of my hardware (video card or motherboard I would think). So can someone please help we get to the bottom of this problem?
Thanks in advance!
